    Hi All
    I have a stunning daughter (31yrs) who is intelligent (PH.D although not a geek), good job, has own house, loves sport - plays golf netball the occasional tennis game, good sense of humour, is sensitive to others needs and finds it very hard to meet guys whom she clicks with. She was married to her high school sweetheart met when 15yrs but they split a couple of years ago as their lives were heading in different direction ( no kids). After the initial upset died down they remain good friends. She has gone on lots of dates through tinder and the like but no luck. A couple of times she has been stuck on a couple of guys who were not emotionally available. I put this down to lack of dating experience and learning that the playground can be tough. Daughter is ex country girl and not a high flyer, tends to seek more tradie type guys rather than higher class. Sorry about the long story.
    So my dear friends, could I have some suggestions of where she might find some nice guys please?

    Through sport. I play volleyball and lots of people find partners that way. Helps that the majority of comps in Sydney are mixed/open though.

    Perhaps.

    I tick almost all the boxes except the "hot tradie type" thing. Which is where i have fallen down a few times now, I have found many single women into their 30's still desire the perfect 6 pack and pecs male physique (usually with the intelligence of a lump of timber to go with it) and turn down endless otherwise fantastic guys as "not my type". Then they hit 40 and realise they have wasted a decade seeking perfection rather than someone decent, then its panic stations when they cant find anyone.

    Perhaps you need to offer a large dowry?

    @Jelsa2 get your daughter to come to one of the social events - perfect for networking with some nice (& nicely set up) individuals.

    How did I not think of the obvious first? But geez guys... Jelsa, you might be able to auction off dates to the highest bidder here! Just look at the demand to supply ratio!

    Most of us who replied already have significant others, but a few relationships have been formed via these forums.

    Point was mostly - hang out with those who share common interests (whether that be property or whatever else you're into) and you're bound to run into someone compatible.

    Or break up a relationship with someone who already is and steal their heart.

    Wow, how much trouble are you going to be in when daughter finds out you're hunting for men on her behalf, on an internet forum? haha.

    I think her problem would be that there is a limited pool. A 31 year old with a PHD who likes tradie types. You need to find one not taken, who is a tradie, who is intelligent and can compete intellectually, who isn't a dick, who is 'emotionally stable (whatever that means), who isn't threatened by someone smarter and independent. And if you find this person, they have to be interested in your daughter.

    And I'm taken

    Good luck

    Maybe she can go on an overseas holiday, but stay backpacker style? Accents are sexy...

    I agree here. You will not find all you seek. She will have to be flexible eg tradie that can compete/be compatible with a phd on an an intellectual level is an oxymoron. ( no offence to Anyone)...

    I still think online sites like RSVP are the way to go. The don't find love necessarily, but they do weed out unsuitable candidates, and thus increase your chances. For example, if your daughter definitely wants to have children, then that is something that goes in your profile. Meeting someone randomly, when do you bring up stuff like that? Let's say she met a really nice guy and only 3 months later discovers he is not interested in kids or marrige. Time and emotional capital wasted.

    The other thing to put in a profile, is the total truth. I had 1 friend suggest to write about how I'm a geek, another suggested to not say stuff like that. The 1st paragraph of my profile was about my geekiness and that really caught my wife's attention.

    BTW, I met my wife on RSVP on my second date. Very lucky. 5 years married,1 PPOR, 6 IPs and 2 kids.

    I wish her the best of luck to find a good man.

    i think this is probably the best answer. Just don't tell her that's why you want her there. Just say, 'moral support'
