Best city to find a date?

Thank you Atlanta! You have topped another list of best cities to find a date. This means that if you are dateless in Atlanta – it’s you with the problem! Just kidding – sort of.

Atlanta has been consistently named as one of the best places to land a date. According to the Daily Beast, we have the single people (with jobs!), money to invest in dating costs, and enough mentally and physically healthy people that are out on the dating scene.

This is all encouraging news, of course. You are in the right place to find a date. You only need to put some effort into actually finding a date. Staying home every night is not going to cut it! Just because the city is teeming with single people ready to mingle, does not mean they are going to show up on your doorstep!

What do you think of Atlanta’s ranking as #1 city to find a date? Would you agree? Have you tried dating in other cities?

If Atlanta is the best place to find a date, I wonder what city would be ideal to find a date that is interested in marrying one day? Would we still be the best city? Is Atlanta a great city to be in a relationship and/or married?

The ones I pity are the ones who think that they are failures or victims and won’t let it go, because that just gets in the way of the good and the learning…and potential success the next time around.

Exiled – That’s another way to look at it too, though that’s where the problem may lie. Folks know most times they can depend on me, especially for a meal. They are not always considerate of me & my time though! I can be a bit of a softie and folks take advantage of that! :)

LOL @ Exiled. I was at a Christmas party once given by a really well to do divorced anaesthesiologist. Gorgeous multimillion dollar home, beautiful, spotless… I went to the refrigerator (guessing three or four thousand at least) and all that was in it was some bottled water. other than some strategically placed pictures of his children (who apparently lived with his ex), there was not a single sign of a “home” rather than a “showcase”. I felt sorry for him.

celisea/leggs – a few days ago (after watching four brothers yet again) I commented that mark wahlberg will make you forget he’s a white boy. I’m at a loss as to why he isn’t my white boy crush.

exiled – makes me think of martin Lawrence in you so crazy when he said he comes in the door and sniffs and doesn’t smell anything cooking.

White foods to avoid:

Whipping cream
seasonings (salt, sugar)
pasta
bread
dressings

While we are playing with each other, how is “you know who”?

@ Leggs and just so you know, ya Meany, I got pizzed because there was another guy…last time it was her ex-husband. Heard from her awhile back, gone blonde, stopped dating, and looked good. Tempting, but nope…

Whole wheat pasta bad too? And ranch dressing is so tasty – goes great with hot wings.

@Cel

Everything in moderation…

Too much of (just about) anything is hazardous to your health.

I cut back on the sugar/salt intake and lost 15 (easy) pounds.

You have me cracking up, Randyt. I’m not mean (not really) :lol:

“You know who” seems to be ok. I sense he’s going through some things. I don’t want to press the envelope since he’s not forthcoming. But trying to read between the lines tells me he’s going through something.

dyslexicbunny – They only mentioned the white pasta as being bad for you. I only eat whole wheat pasta when I’m cooking. Not bad at all.

Exactly Dan. I don’t do away with everything altogether. Some things I think you need…if only a smidgen of it.

@ Dan, i mayhave found some of the pounds you lost. Since you probably don’t want them back, i will keep them and take care of them. Hopefully i can pass them on to someone else down the road.

Hey ITL – I say him on there…”D O double g”….lol What’s up with the two ponytails though?? Ain’t he ’bout 50?? Shouldn’t he take those down now? I was thinking for that last (black) chick that made it to the stage he might would hook her up in a video.

LOL @ Cel. He really was good, though. He helped that lady win over $12K in Plinko. I looked it up, and today’s celeb is Neil Patrick Harris, tomorrow is Chris Daughtry, and Friday is Heidi Klum! I’m going to have to DVR it.

So now y’all know..I LOVE The Price is Right. #don’t judge me

Heidi Klum on Friday…

I first saw her years ago in an Esquire layout I almost thought, move over Christie B. i still think she is the best of the VS gals…never thought a lady wearing “angel wings” and a thong could look so good. Defintiely a religious moment.

ITL – funny you mentioned monk. I saw the most hilarious episode the other day. monk’s insurance changed and he had to go to group therapy instead of private sessions. he commented in group that his assistant did whatever and a guy in group attacked him saying at least he had an assistant. imagine how hard life is for folks out in the world that are assistant-less.

I’ve got a friend who LOVES snoop. I like him as an artist but I’d never pick snoop in a game of “who can hit it”.

ex – I’ll bite. I’ll raise my hand because I’m not a liar (not because I’m proud of it). still, I’m working on it, I’m working on it.

The little A has a lot to offer for dating and that’s it. The A is more a party city than a romantic one, once in while a match is made for couples willing to go extra in their relationship. Single and unattached men find it hard to settle when there are waves of beautiful women moving here, we are like grizzly bears on a river bank waiting for salmon to jump in our mouth little effort great reward. I know this is chauvanistic I was born here, what else can I say. I’ll stop right there.

I look at Snoop Dog the same way I look at LLCoolJ. Both stuck with their h.s. sweethearts because they both wanted someone who could identify with their type of upbringing and appreciate where they came from to where they landed. However, I’m not saying either one hasn’t committed adultry along the way.

Ashley not Naomi. I sometimes watch Kentucky basketball games just to see if she is in the crowd. I’d ask her out in a heartbeat if she would stay single long enough ;-)

It’s a WIP Celisea!

not a natural for me,I won’t lie..

I associate mt mouth with food intake and I’m a hygienist(clean freak when it comes to food,kitchen,utensil placement etc) so getting something into my mouth like that….ummm..

let the d handle that….

But I also realize,it puts her on a plateau of pleaaaaaasure

So I try……

So for u folks(ladies),its a requirement..u expect it ad a default right?

I think the American guys have no issue with it right?

A requirement, not necessarily, but an added bonus (most definitely). I wouldn’t dismiss a guy if he didn’t engage. HOWEVER, don’t expect me to engage when you down. Something like that is a two-way street!
