Why is dating in nyc so hard

So, like any single woman in the city, I went through the motions of dating, having flings and a couple of short relationships in the hopes of finding “the one.” Before I met my fiancé — not in New York City mind you — I had been dating in this town for almost ten years; ten long and arduous years of ups and downs, drama, tears, joy and the rest of it. New Yorkers have a different idea of what love is, and for a lot of us, it’s not even a priority until later on in the game.However, with the chapter of my dating life officially closed (I hope), I like to think I learned a couple things.

So, unlike a recent movie I saw (most of it twice because I went back and bought a second ticket) "Meet the Patels" if I heard right the sister of the American man whose wife quest we follow has had 100 dates and no second dates. Can someone ask someone to go for pizza a second time? Do you tell everyone too much information, not "advertise the merchandise" the tiniest bit and dress as if you were 14 or a chorus girl? My advice: listen, listen, listen, and don't jump and do dates at 11 pm and think that will work.

Try houses of worship, there are hundreds in NYC, and start young while the men are still single. And not doing "wild" things will keep you having to try to meet men where you find out if they want to talk and do activities. Talk to women older than you who have what you want and ask them how they got it!

It will probably take you days, if not weeks, to admit to your friends that it happened, but it’s a fact: you will be stood up.

In most cases it will be because the person you’re supposed to meet was pushed into the date in the first place.

As a former “Bachelorette” contestant, Garofola knows he has no problem scoring with women — he goes on up to five first dates a week, which he says usually include a drink or two and nothing beyond a goodnight smooch on the cheek.

But in the past two months, he’s been feeling spent by the mating game.With the huge variety of things to do you can attend those that you're interested in and find a like minded mate.More so, since you got all this activity happening, you'll find every person to be truly unique - you'll get every personality you can think of in this place. It seems to suck because of the illusion that everyone is always doing something “important”.Even though everyone is busy, most if not all new Yorkers also spend a lot of their time mastering and enjoying their hobbies.While I don't knock their choices, I can attest to the fact that everyone I've had, er, "run-ins" with were actually not in an open relationship at all.
