DEAR DEIDRE: I’VE met a few great guys on dating apps, but none seems to want anything serious.
They either ghost me, or say they’re too busy for a relationship.

I’m 42 and have been single since my divorce went through six years ago.
I’ve matched with more than 100 guys via apps since last year and I’m in touch with four who all seem really nice.
But one keeps going hot and cold – apparently his job is “hectic” – and another lives in New York and says he’ll visit soon, but never fixes a date.

The third keeps asking for “no strings” sex when I’ve stressed I want a relationship.
How can I meet someone if guys keep playing me?
DEIDRE SAYS: Online dating is a great way to meet people, but it does have its downsides.
It can be hard to know what people are really looking for on these apps.
Stick to your guns, keep trying online dating but also try to socialise in real life.
The strongest relationships have a basis in friendship. Use meetup.com to find like-minded people with similar interests to you.
My support pack Finding The Right Partner For You has other useful tips, too.
