City & State or ZIP

When love comes calling – from another city?

We know Atlanta has the cool dating scene. There are a lot of places to go see and be seen. We have the great looking people and the hottest parties.  What happens when you are ready to get off the dating scene and fall in love? Do you think Atlanta is a city conducive to that happening?

While we rank pretty high on any given best city for singles list, it looks as if the best city for love (you know, grown up, make it work  kind?) is not Atlanta. It’s San Antonio, Texas.  I know! I’m shocked too.  I go there once a year on my trek to do volunteer work in Mexico.  I had no idea I was in the city of matrimony and love. Maybe I should stay in the city a little longer this year!

This list that The Daily Beast compiled pulled the most telling statistics of each city. They looked at which cities had  “a high prevalence of marriage, a low incidence of divorce, a relatively happy population and a wealth of bars and restaurants to meet and woo a significant other”.  Sounds fair right?

Here is how Atlanta scored:

  • Attracting singles: C
  • Social life: C
  • Emotional Health: A
  • Marriage: A
  • Divorce: F

What do you think? Do you think Atlanta is prime location to be in love and happy?

Would you ever consider leaving Atlanta if you met someone great in a different city that is more marriage friendly?

A city of love has the best romantic dining, they named Atlanta’s Wisteria. What are your top romantic places to venture?

I put an offer on the house, so now I feel that if it’s meant to be, it will be! I did talk to the leasing manager at the apartments and they wanted to charge an arm and a leg to go month to month. I figured that if there is a lapse, it will be cheaper to stay in an extended stay hotel and put my things in storage for a few weeks. We’ll see!

Frankly I don’t know what MMEELLOO said that was so out of the ordinary (for him). IMO, his tone was always about the same. So I don’t know if it was something in particular on a day I missed or if Diva just got fed up that the tone never changed.

Thanks for clarifying that PR, I was giving you that “out of the corner of my eye” look.

Talking to a new lady who has a Tennessee Walking Horse for a pet. I haven’t ridden much since I left home, but rode a lot then. (As pretty as this lady is, I’d almost put on a saddle and let her ride me). Not sure where she keeps it, but she lives in Roswell.

So I think I told you folks I had been feeling like I have vertigo for the last 2 weeks. Doc says my blood is thick now….so anyone know of a red wine that is NOT dry nor bitter. I don’t want to have to chase my wine with water after every sip.

When I was in college, I went to Nogales and watched a Donkey show once…It was amazing to see that lady take the first few inches of that donkey inside of her….I always knew women could strech from the inside out, but never figure a pudussy could open that wide from the outside in….

Slim Chilean and Argentinian merlots, Shiraz, and Chianti tend to be nice medium-bodied wines. Bordeauxs and super Tuscans are full-bodied. Start there.

Slim — Go to Dekalb Farmer’ Market & pick up a bottle of Chateau Bonnet in the French section. It’s a Bordeaux — pretty smooth & cheap, too (about $13).

Ahhhh Nogales…spent some very memorable time there when I was at Fort Huachuka (sp?). “Hey Mon, you looooooking for woooooman?”?

Started drinking Dos Equis there many years ago. Wonder why I am not the “World’s Most Interesting Man”? (There are only 10 really bad azzes in the whole world, and I get Christmas cards from nine of them) ;-)

@ Swiss, but of course it was a female horse he is talking about…nothing quire about him!!!

@ Simple…Siera Vista, remember it well. Not much else to do there so might as well get sloppy. The mesquite grilled steaks were really good in Nogales and whatever that little town about halfway between Nogales and Huachca was.
