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?

When I was in Spain, I tried to drain Barcelona of every drop of Sangria. Great, but head hurt like a mutha next day.
Randyt yeah I think I had enough sangria and tapas while I was there to last at least another 2 years. lol

I love those as well.
BMW have to say, the Trockenbeerenausleses and the Eisweins are my favorites though.

Just received this from our African brother:

“Yes, am aware and really appreciate. I dont really think the ban is because of something I did or say in particular that was offensive…

I just think the ban is an inside job..people or a person with blog clout and Diva’s ear, pushing to have me banned.

Tell them folks, I appreciate and I laugh all the while, with uall as well.

Since my husband and I met and fell in love in this city I have to say I disagree with the results. There is so much to do and I think it is as friendly to singles as it is to couples and families.

Okay, this f__king filter… Apparently, you can’t say “met-i-cu-lous” or “ridi-cu-lous”. Must not like the “-cu-lous” part…

Seriously, Wise, whoever wrote this filtering logic is a retard…

@busybodyk ~ I think the City is fairly friendly. But, the City is not too kind to couples and families. There are a lot of gorgeous women here in Atlanta. Many married man are probably driving themselves crazy!

‘I’ll be right over with a bottle of port, Mrs. Swiss & my camcorder…’

swiss – Sure come on over…right after I eat this whole loaf of french bread and cheese. Gotta get something to soak up all these spirits so nothing will get out of hand.

I don’t care for Sangria’s or Sherry

Me.Lo….we miss you man! You, Swiss & Purple are the “Freaky Trio” that always deliver “shock Value posts! :lol: If that type of conspiracy does exist then I’m sorry that some jackholes who can’t be adults had to hate on you man and that people can’t make their own decisions like a grown up. You always made me laugh bruh! It’s all in fun. They are just words folks. Now go put your big boy/big girl draws on and skip along. :roll:

honestly SDD, the sangria in Spain is not like that bathtub stuff we made in college. It is good over there and goes well on Ramblas Street just before the “ladies selling entertainment for a small financial compensation” appear.

I wonder if Taco Bell lost any revenue when it was reported 2 weeks ago that it’s beef is only 27% beef, the rest is fillers, extenders, nuts and bolts, etc.

‘Calling my butt a hot mess… Although, I did have Taco Bell for lunch today,’

Swiss – just when I thought I’d make it out alive, I take a swig of my water and almost choked on myself. Ewwwww, taco bell…Yuck! I think there was an article in the ajc a little while ago disputing them being able to refer to the brown meat-like substance they serve as beef…said it’s really only about 30something percent, if that, beef. :shock:

Interesting… the “-ulous” suffix is okay, as long as it’s not preceded by a “c”

So, I can say “incredulous” or “tremulous”, but not “redic-ulous” or “metic-ulous”

You can’t pay me to eat Naco Bell….esp after seeing the 20/20, Nightline..whatever talk show that showed a location after hours and there had to be about 50 rats running aroung the place…for real. All over the counter, cash registers, in the booths, on top of tables. Oh and some story I head that a bug (from the fake meat) laid an egg in a cutomer’s cheek…new that wasn’t true but just the thought is enough to NEVER go there again.
