The description also squares with much of what I heard in interviewing single men and women. ... I am certain he will tell me that high standards are just a euphemism for a€œpicky, a€ and that he will ship me off for expensive, long-term ... a€œIf you draw a series of five concentric circles, the fifth ring is the total contact potential in your dating lifetime that you can meet, a€ he says.
