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?

1) Everyone lies or exaggerates about one or more things.

2) Beware of those who only post photos from the neck up. They are concealing how damn fat they are.

3) Beware of those who post more than 5 – 7 photos. They think way too much of themselves.

4) WTF is the deal of posting photos of your pets? We do not want to date your pets. Stop posting those photos…It\’s creepy

5) Same as above, except photos of your children. Are you trying to appeal to the pedophile in us?

6) Stop with the over used cliche\’. We all love walks on the beach. Woo us with something different and unique.

7) don\’t be too wordy. See number 3 above. It may indicate you think too much of yourself.

8) If you state you are always so busy, then what makes us think you will make time for dating?

9) Be totally honest. It\’s better to get rejected before the first date, then to get dumped later on.

More:

Revealing photos –

Guys, most women don\’t want to see you shirtless in front of a Harley or Corvette. It reeks of inseccurity.

Ladies…..Same as above in bikinis or mega cleavage tops. You are asking for trouble as most guys see that as an invite for first date sex.

@OLDforD Yup. Spot on.

@ lady…lol, no I don’t have one but am an observant, avid student of psychological disorders…especially with bosses and girlfriends ;-) I have a one picture/cartoon blowup of a Dilbert cartoon on my office wall. Dilbert is basically ignoring his pointy haired boss. and saying, “I respectfully decline the invitation to participate in your delusion”. I kind of look at life and DSM that way ;-)

@SlimNu ~ yeah he’s 97 and she’s 96. He can’t get past her infidelity all those decades ago. The divorce is going to kill both of them.

@BF ~ not knocking those that need it, just knocking those that didn’t help themselves so they wouldn’t need it. Nevamind….NEXT

Slim – I heard about that. The man is 99 and the lady is 96. They’ve been married over 70 years. He found some old love letters from 60 years ago that she wrote to the other dude!!

He needs to sit his old butt down. I doubt if he’s been a complete angel all those 70-plus years himself.

Why you got old love letters that long?

I’m saying, if they haven’t turned to dust by now, why is you keeping them?

Ummm, Online Dating for Dummies, why are you posting your dos and don’ts here? Shouldn’t you post these things on your page/profile or whatever place they have for preferences on the dating site? I think most of us are good here.

Hmm, – just wondering how they determine the city to be the best..Does the city make the eye contact, say something good, ask the question, response smartly, read the body language, etc? I’d think it is only up to you, and the other half. Not necessarily equally 50/50. Just saying…

And more photo advice –

Background of photos. Be aware of what\’s in the background. Messy and clutter is a turn off

Also, who else is in your photo? Numerous photos of you in a bar with numerous people holding bottles of cheap beer suggest you are a party animal when you may not be one.

@On Line ~ I agree. Why are there 18 pics and some are of the ocean outside your vacation hotel window, your pet, your bathroom, your bedroom, etc. Sheesh.

And, I’ve heard about face pics only may be hiding someone’s size (lol).

That would be so crazy to go thru all those years together to have to spend tthe last period of it dealing with a broken heart. I can see the devastation of finding out your loving ‘faithful’ wife actuall got some D on the side, after all that time. I can’t see him or her functioning that well having to now learn to live ’single’ again. That’s CRAZY!

Maybe old dude is thinking this is a good excuse to go knocking on some doors at the old folks home. maybe he has been wanting some strange for 50 or so years himself.

I happened on your statement, consensus is older men need them when I have seen more younger buying and trying to sell them. The part where it’s undesirable to you made me have to stick up for the guys who don’t use them.

No matter how you slice it, Randyt, Old Dude is going to die either trying to get some or simply from a broken heart.

Dan – I agree, why keep them? And I’m guessing they are a little deeper than “Roses are red, violets are blue…”. Maybe he felt she’s always been pining for someone else all these years and this is the evidence.

Maybe the dude in the letters are her real true love and that’s why she could not part with them. Po thang didn’t know how to play the game! Destroy the evidence!

In any case, it’s sad.

On topic: I have never been in a city that could not find a date. I had to cross my eyes several times but hell at least I was on a date.

Ladies don’t listen to Dummy, show as much cleavage as you want. Hell sans the bra!!!

If you’re that old and have been married that long, it should be some law against getting a divorce lol

I betcha old dude has always been controlling! Thought he had wifey under control and on a short leash. It’s probably killing him that she might have had the last laugh all along.

He really ought to let it go.

leggs – a whole lot of screaming. that’s funny.

kimmie/kym – TI as a thug crush. he may do thug type things but he still looks soft. now 50 cent (not the I lost a lot of weight for a movie 50) got that thug appeal for sure.

Brittney – re expecting tail. made me think of DL Hughley talking about when the bill collectors call and ask when they can expect payment he replies that you can expect it whenever you want to. when will you get it is the real question.

Hey For Real, I’m leaning towards Kimmie’s theory…that’s probably the one true love she couldn’t have and went ahead and indulged in that moment in time…lol Old cat is mad as heck now…first for going all this time being none the wiser and then to know she had a thing for somebody else but stayed with him out of whatever it is that made her stay…lol He just need to LET IT GO and gone over into the sunset with her.

So now u have to imagine he got some himself to make it look good on her part?

that’s reaching!

a broken heart is a broken heart,never mind his age or how li g they been together.

If she’s keeping luv letters that old,the side flame did some to her heart!

Women don’t hold onto to stuff unless they were emotionally touched or have an agenda.

The D must have been good.

“I’m imagining having to say wait for 30 to an hour so the pill can start working. I can’t see it, but it happens and they sometimes don’t work.” – Mental turnoff. Not referring to someone I’ve been in a relationship with, but a newbie wanting to hang tighter with me. UUGGGH!

After 60 years if you still holding a grudge..I mean what is the point..old dude found the letters and it all came back to him or was he in the war or something..aint no fool like a old fool.

@Ex ~ you sound like the guy from yesterday. It probably wasn’t about the “D.” Apparently his essence consisted of more than just sex for her to keep those letters.
