Newbie and In need of advice
Find a Conversation

I've been lurking for quite awhile now trying to find someone with the same problems but I haven't seen anything so far. So I'm hoping I can get advice.
I'm 30 years old and I have had only 2 serious relationship so far. The 1st one-I was married to and divorced by the time I turned 24. My ex-husband was goodlooking, extremely nice, treated me really well but I was not in love with him. My ex-boyfriend(we broke up 2 months ago)was also goodlooking(like a movie star), smart, muscular, compatible, great career, treated me with respect, support me in every way amd I was crazy in love with him....but he can't commit..we dated just under five years long distance. We talked every day & saw each other once a month but that wasn't enough for me and I wanted marriage but he didn't.
Here's the problem....I feel like I will never meet someone like that again. I'm so picky and I have a really hard time meeting people because I look unapproacable and if anyone ever does approach me they are definitely not what I'm attracted to. I would rather stay at home because I have 1 single friend and we're not at all compatible except for the single part.
I tried the on-line thing because I figured since I'm so picky I would scan for my type...I met one loser off the dating sight..we spoke for a while on the phone we exchange photo's and I thought this is great finally someone as comparable as my ex-boyfriend. We made arrangements to meet and when we did meet, i find out that he was not even the same guy in the picture...I was so pissed and I told him off..but he kept calling me to appolygize saying that I would not have given him a chance if he sent me his real picture..and now i'm completely turned off with on-line dating because It took me quite a while to find someone who I thought was very attractive and compatible and then I find out he was just a complete loser and a liar! HELP!! I feel like I'm going to be alone for the rest of my life because my standards are just too high....
