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?

@Kym ~ we can dress like the “girls” at the other table, but look at what they “pulled!” Let’s keep doing what we’re doing (lol). We’re good….

After hearing T.I. speak at a press conference I was impressed. But, the boy is too skinny for me!

Had to go back to yesterday’s blog to refresh my memory, OUCH.

@Albert ~ able-bodied has nothing to do with a properly “functioning” body. Able-bodied is being able to do what it takes to get the job done.

@OUCH ~ I wasn’t offended. My retort was also a joke. I was visualizing you touching folk just because they were within reach and someone slapping you.

OUCH ! i bumped my head

Well, I did eat two rolled joints (may have been one) out of a friend’s mouth while sitting in the back of a police car after she couldn’t eat any more of it. Ummmm, knew I wouldn’t die from the quantity….

to bring it back on topic:

oh boy. they’re looking at raw numbers of single folks, with no mentions of the quality of the pool.

well if “number of options” is what you’re looking for, i guess that’s accurate. but throw some parameters around that (i.e.: job, education, income, common interests, common values, number of children and baby mamas/daddys), and … well, now y’all know why i married a cali boy and moved west.

I find that some people are just itching to be in a relationship to seek stability, find their place in life or complete them. If they need someone else to that for them, then they are sad.

hmmmmm IDGAF so the women in the 40s and 50s are perceived as sad?!? wasn’t that the way of life….but i know we are in 2012 and I get your point…

Lady, Thank You for understanding where Im coming from. After reading my post, it did seem like I was degrading a group of people, my apologies. Thank You again. Second it’s not just women, some men are like that as well. Sometimes worse

After reading the below story, I thought of two things: (1) what a nice story to tell the kids later on in life and (2) he must not have been attractive enough. I understand the law, but if she was interested she would have been flattered and not disgusted.

@ IDGAF and lady, I’d have to think about whether I agree. I do know that the older a woman becomes, the more “security” becomes a major desire. That said, most of the women I date want the whole package, security, chemistry, looks, comfort… I find myself thinking that is a tall order to fill…and sometimes “male financial security” might be misread if one looks just at car and home, and doesn’t exam the whole portfolio. When I was dating the “Flake”, she told me about the stalker she dated. he had a nice Infiniti SUV (leased), a fancy apartment (but still an apartment), and a whole lot of smoke and mirrors.

Atlanta is a great dating city, never had a problem when I lived there. If you are having a problem dating in Atlanta, don’t move to Savannah. I have never lived somewhere where an attractive guy with a great personality, advanced degree, and a great career could have such a hard time finding women to date. If you are not military or of the old money crowd, the women of Savannah won’t give you the time of day. Oh how I wish I was in Atlanta again!

@ lady a Texas expression…”all hat, and no cattle”

“Description of a person that is all talk and no substance; full of big talk but lacking action; a person who cannot back up his/her words; a fake; a pretender”.

That is what some women find when they look deeper…and a good idea to look deeper.

@question …we seem to have a slight conflict here ;-)

I think Atlanta is a wonderful place to date and marry. If you are a woman, you just have to learn to play the game and not give it up too soon. And ladies, make sure you pay for your OWN dinner and movie ticket sometimes so he won’t be expecting tail by the end of the night! And for males and females, don’t waste your time if someone shows the slightest hint of being crazy. Pay attention to the red flags and move on. There are so many cultures here, Atlanta is a fun place to live, date, marry and work. Good luck to everyone looking for someone special. Don’t give up!

@ Leggs…sometimes medical conditions can cause the need for the blue pill. Diabetics in particular. Age takes its toll. Now fat stomachs, I understand that dilemma and agree (and gazing down and thinking I better hit the gym tonight, Leggs just called me out”) LOL.

@ Britney…good post. One problem is that sometimes “crazy” surfaces later, lol. To paraphrase “The Sixth Sense”:

I see crazy people. They are everywhere. They don’t know they are crazy. They walk around just like normal people. And some of them…I’ve dated.

@Randyt – yeah I realize medical conditions usually calls for the blue pill. Sometimes as a result because he didn’t take care of himself. And, I’m not referring to genetics. I’ve seen men be a glutton at the dinner table/buffet with no regard to their health, but they want a nice spry young thing on their arms….go figure.

@? ~ go for it, you can do it and rekindle dem embers that haven’t died out….you’d be surprised.
