Silent dating nyc
The number of stories I heard from my female friends about guys they went on dates with who were "in between jobs" or not really motivated by anything, or expecting her to do the lion's share of work in the relationship, etc. So taking that into account, the numbers don't really tell the whole story.
I spent my single years here finding the perfect woman.
My friends who have dated elsewhere never had to send first messages but here it's basically required.
It feels like we're living the experience that guys have elsewhere where women misrepresent themselves or sit back and expect to be wooed while offering very little to go on.
I want a family and I'm not getting any younger.
My two friends who live in New York are always talking about how people feel disposable in the dating scene, and so it's easy to hook up but not so easy to find a significant other.
In DC, a lot of the single guys are already living in the suburbs as childless 20-somethings...it's just a different vibe here.
And you have to see the Virginia suburbs to believe them.
And even then there's a chance that he'll just ghost you after 3 months (ask me how I know). They take care of themselves physically and aesthetically. There's blank dating profiles galore, outdated photos, and lazy uninteresting replies to messages.They flake out and they date WAY out of their league on a regular basis. A male 5 will easily date an 8 and treat her like shit in NYC. 2 settling (like, is your fiance autistic or just really bad with people? Out of town love - tinder and the prevalance of friends who come to visit has contributed to a lot of long distance relationships in my circle.I DO have friends who have fallen in love in NYC and they fall about equally into 3 camps. Generally its an AMAZING city to build a tribe of friends and further your career but a terrible place to look for love.It is tough not to find one, they're honestly everywhere.
For women, however, the opposite is sometimes true.What has dating been like in New York for you Redditors? I actually haven't enjoyed the dating scene in DC (hence why I'm still single), mostly because I find a lot of the guys to be too bro-y and mainstream, and then the ones who are looking for more serious relationships seem to be on the fast track to suburban Mc Mansion hell (they might not put it that way, ha).
