This is an advice column, not for dating

I am an employed, well-mannered man who is 36 years old. I am looking for a woman aged between 20 and 36 with no more than one child for a serious relationship with a view to marriage.

She must be honest, reliable trustworthy and beautiful.

I like watching soccer, playing music and going to the movies.

What gives you the impression this is a dating column? Do you see a dating service advertised anywhere within this space? No. No. No.

If you are looking for a partner, dig into that pocket of yours - and not even too deep - and sign up with a dating agency.

Stop being a cheapskate. You are employed. Spend some money instead of approaching the wrong people in the wrong places. This is an advice column.
