Dr. Phil you can sen Keith my

I could see why Paula had a hard time choosing. However, I think she picked the right guy for her. I was leaning towards Keith though. He pushed me right over for him when he sang. Let him know he can sing to me any day and I loved what he sang. He had me when he described his perfect day of staying at home and kicking back and then when he sang he pushed the envelope over.

*A Dr. Phil Prime Time Special: Love Smart*

I agree with others posted here 

I'd love to see a show including those of us in the older group still struggling to find the "right one" 

I am among them - and can tell you it is frustrating 

I challenge Dr Phil to help  find me a real mate !!

Good Prime Time Show

Hey Dr. Phil, Robin & Everyone, 


I enjoyed the Prime Time Special with Paula.  It was funny seeing her run from date to date.  But it was a good experiment, I even learned a little. 


I really hope Paula and Hal, stay together,  I really think she likes him.  Good Luck.

Quess what, not all of us are the plastic beautiful people that get on TV, and even worse ,we would be told that we are the problem because we can change what we look like in some way. I don't want saline boobs and plastic cheek bones and look like a famine was taking place because I am a stick figure with no SHAPE!!!!   Rather just be me..........Laura

Oh, Dr. Phil....Dr. Phil...I’m so disappointed! Your Special tonight just didn’t help people like me! I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. See, I’m one of those "intelligent" women. (You know, the ones that playa’ from California doesn’t go for?) What a letdown - on Valentines Day of all days - and sitting here - by myself. All I got out of that, once again, was that you have to be attractive, not to mention young. Was there anything to learn for the average single woman like me who is from the general population? And what about the average, older, single woman?  


And Paula Abdul? Look, I accept that people like Paula have problems with dating too but most of us don’t lead the charmed life she does.. Most of us aren’t hosting American Idol and most of us don’t look like she does. Come on, how do her dating problems, as a celebrity with the specific trust issues that entails, help the "average Joe" or "Jo-anne" like me? Pleee-ze! The men with whom she was paired up were gorgeous and obviously above the norm. They wouldn’t give average looking women a second look. Who are you trying to kid here? 


I’m happy you were able to help Paula and talk that other lady out of a bad relationship with the playa’ from California but as a single person in my 40s, I didn’t get a thing out of that, not a thing. It only made me feel worse about myself and here you are telling us all the time to project a positive image! How can one find that "positivity" within oneself when this kind of show reinforces existing social values all over again? 


Nope, Dr, Phil, I’m happy for Paula but all I got out of this was that to be over 35 and average looking is a major obstacle. I’m still on my own. Thanks anyway.

I met a player to

Dr. Phil, 

   We have players here in Canada to. I met a guy online from a dating website. Had been talking to him on the computer and the phone since around mid October. He seemed like a really nice guy. I actually started to have feelings for him. My first mistake. We never met in person until January. He lives about an hour and a half away from me. Things started getting weird in January though because when I would be chatting with him on line there were so many times he'd be silent and not talk to me. Then I'd ask him if he was chatting with someone else and he'd say no. Well, after him standing me up 3 times I started asking questions. Then he told me he was a player and that he had been using me.  

It was funny though because not 1/2 and hour after him telling me this, some woman came online and wanted me to add her to my contacts. I did and then found out who she was. She was the other woman he's been seeing since January and she only lives about 45 minutes from me. When I confronted him about other women he said I was the only one. Well, been there, done that and bought the t-shirt. I've been the one cheated on before. When I started putting 2 and 2 together I knew he was lying. She found out about me because he signed in on her computer and she got his password. She went in and checked his contact list.  

He got busted. Now he won't talk to either of us. Laying low probably trying to figure out what to do. 

Why do men have to do things like that? I told him I might look like I have stupid tattooed on my forehead but I don't.  

When you introduced the girl from Boston to Veronica it was like me and that woman. She was with him the last time on a Wednesday night and I was with him Thursday. 

So, I'm Thursday and she's Wednesday.  

If any women are reading this and carefully, don't go to the plenty of fish website. They are all players there.

Not for you?

Quote From: hpmx590

Doctor Phil. I think Love Smart is good for some peoples but not for me. See you next day. Well I had better close now. Sincerley Your. Russell




Why would you say that?  Do you know something the rest of us don't, or do you have a significant other in your life and things are terrific for you both?  Do you ask all the right questions? 


You are puzzling

You said it!

Quote From: traveltram

I agree with you on that.  I would love to see the very same men set up with women that more match their looks. I would love to know their response and reaction. As an attractive, educated woman I do need to be with someone that is not only a good person, intelligent, but someone that i am physically attracted to, that does not make one a bad person, but honest. Mind you, at the same time a guy may be absolutely gorgeous, but if he has zero personality a 10 quickly becomes a zero     
 Both you ladies have an excellent point and I couldn't have said it better myself.

For women, looks DO count when it comes to dating men but they're not nearly as important as personality. However, I don't think the same could be said for men. For men, looks are absolutely number one with personality coming in second, or even third or fourth.  A woman's personality is no indication of her love life, sorry to say. I've witnessed several marraiges where the bride has a terrible personality (cruel, manipulative, selfish) but has a pretty face and is a good cook and housecleaner. The groom? A decent guy who doesn't have his priorities straight.

 I have unconventional looks- pale skin and dark, dark hair. I've had men act downright disgusted by me strictly because of my coloring. From my frusturated point of view men want someone as close to Barbie as is possible- blonde, lightly tanned and very thin. This is ridiculous because, as our African-American sisters remind us, Beauty does not begin and end with Barbie.

Love smarter

I don't mean to sound cold, but I've been in the mix of people looking for years. I've been on stage for the last 20 + years playing music in medium to large shows, and in every instance it has been proven over and over. 

Women are their own worst enemy when it comes to picking a person to have a relationship with. 

What I mean is, when they pick someone, it always seems to be the man with the tallest build, biggest muscles, fastest car, when there are men out there that have a little weight on the body, or is a little shorter that would treat them with respect, love them unconditionally. 

All I'm saying is give the guys a chance that you all pass by, and then there won't be a show on women getting used. 

In repect, alot of women get done this way by their own doings.

Quote From: ggunter339

Come on Dr Phil, you totally missed it.  Rob is sexually addicted.  I was Rob at 25, i know is not capable of an intimate relationship at this point. Why were you giving the girls such a hard time?  Rob lied.  Why blame them?  People should be able to trust others. if they lie, what can we do. Sure be smarter next time, look with open eyes. Quit blaming the victims. Lets quit calling them "players".  i know many sexually addicted men. They do not know that sexual addiction is even their problem.  They mix porn on the internet with affairs at work.  Affairs are just covers for sex and sex addition. 


i would be glad to share my story to help other men understand their problem is not the affairs. 



Very true. But isn't it interesting that these women voluntarily enetered into the relationship? Our intuition is present for a reason. As a "very good looking" guy who got passed over many times for the "stronger guy" (e.g. more aggressive about getting them into bed) I find it hard to believe that these women didn't get exactly what their subconscious mind had already set  them up for. In other words, "sexually addicted" guys are offered a buffet by women pre-programmed to the exact things a guy such as described knows how to deliver.
