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?

Atlanta is the King of Strip Clubs, Sex Swinging Clubs and Gay Clubs. Being a young professional man the options here are great but the quality is low and hard to find. I’m not saying you can’t find love here but when so many women go to the club weekly to find a man then that should say something because I don’t go to the club for that and I am very attractive man. There are way too many distractions in Atlanta for a single man let alone a married man. People are very superficial here mainly because of the music industry’s presence, flaunting like they have more going on than meets the eye, RHOA is a prime example. The level of poverty here also is another reason too high for a city like this. I enjoy playing the field of options but that gets old fast. So I agree with the rankings. I would leave here on general principle alone, so finding someone in another city would make it worthwhile.

The city of Atlanta didn’t kill Atlanta’s nightlife – Ray Lewis and his pals did – literally and figuratively.

Atlanta is a difficult city to find relationship-minded men. I tend to find those who juggle 2-3 women at once while insisting that they want a relationship. Got so fed up of games and lies that I have taken a really long break from dating. Though I don’t think this problem is just related to Atlanta, it seems to be the culture for singles everywhere these days.
