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?

Actually the pulling pork statement was from Leggs and I was agreeing and we were talking food. Watching me pull pork won’t be like the Donkey thing you enjoyed. I felt lightheaded just reading…ugh…ewww

Grown (mentally, that is) folks will have a very hard time finding love and marriage in Atlanta. I haven’t had a date in four years and THAT was with a guy half my age, and only because he was the only one asking. Now, if you’re cute and want to get laid on the other hand. . . there are plenty of males who will put you on rotation (along with the other 3-4 women they are trying to juggle). And, let’s not forget the married men aim to please.

Swiss before you leave. DO you think Beef Curtains are natural or do they come from abuse?

Just to clarify- the guy half my age was the only one who had sense enough to ask. Everyone else just stands around gawking and waiting for you to ask them. And, yes, I am an attractive successful woman.

ATLsucks if you are attractive and successful and sans man that must mean you have some sort of mental issue or your idea of success and beauty is lower than everyone else.

Leggs, think about it Beef Curtains.

Swiss, LOL
