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?

She just need to cozy up and ask honey bunny to forgive her and let bygones be bygones. I bet if he was younger he’d be out to do get back. That option has expired as well. Heck yeah he’s salty…he can’t even pay her back. I’d give him the divorce if that’s what he wants

Old Dude story reminds me of “The Bridges of Madison County”. Women (and men) sometimes find passion, but to follow it, they have to give up comfort and/or security. I often thought that was why my “transition lover” went back to her ex-husband. She did confide in me years later that that was a total waste of the next three years of her life. Women are complicated. Just an observation.

Maybe they were some real serious letters that’s making it hard to forgive her. I bet old dude read them all. Not to mention, back then, letter writing was the shiznit! When is the last time yall wrote a damn letter lol

Now, how can we say she’s been lying. He didn’t know anything about those letters and possibly not about him so we don’t know if he’s been interrogating her over the years. Even you guys have omitted that omission is not the same as lying…now look at cha.

For Real – What’s shakin, buddy?!! Ready for Archer? I gave my sis the season 1 dvd for Christmas.

I’m not saying she wasn’t wrong. Heck, she might have been a straight-up garden tool all these years and it was the last straw for old dude. He can go on & get the divorce. Maybe they’ll get better SS checks individually. A lot of older folk shack & don’t get married for that very reason.

Hush up, men do it all the time :) Can you hear “Endless Love” playing in the background? LOLOLOL

I’m with Slim…she pouring all those emotions and residuals (ur rum) in a letter? Heck yeah that was her true love. Old dude probably thinking about all that… They were young (or had some youth left) too?

Blackfoote – That’s my point. At this age what we gonna do with a divorce? Just sit on down and stay together and ride it out.

Really I’m kidding. If she’s wrong she’s wrong. He’s heartbroken more than anything.

I’ve lived in Atlanta for only a short time and I had a difficult time dating. I’ve dated 6 or 7 different ladies and all of them are so self-absorbed that it’s just sad. None of them have any goals or ambitions other than marrying, having children, and living the good life. It makes me miss the accomplished, cultured ladies I dated in Boston.

You can do better, Atlanta.

Back then, folks didn’t get divorced like they do now. A lot of people stayed in unhappy marriages out of duty and divorce was looked down on. Just cause a couple has been married for upteen years don’t mean they are happy.

Dude just rolling with the times!

Find a date in Atlanta is easy.. find a straight date in Atlanta is harder.. and turning that date into a lasting relationship…to marriage is damn near impossible..

I was blessed… I found a straight, good looking man, who values manogamy and ME in Atlanta.. BUT good LORD it wasn’t easy..

John – What’s wrong with wanting to marry and have a family? Are you saying you just want to be a perpetual dater and not marry? That’s cool. Just find someone that’s on the same page.

Why don’t you leave Atlanta and go back to Boston? You said you miss the ladies up there. The question is – do they miss you?

CPA – um if you’ve dated 6 to 7 women here and they all turned out the same way, could it be your selection skills are a bit off? There is some similarity between all of them and that’s You. Just a thought though ;)

True or old love, whether she forgot ‘em or not, she should’ve burned ‘em when she got ‘em.

You married, why are keeping letters?

If the roles were reversed, y’all would be advocating taking his walker on his way out the do….stop playin

Kimmie: Yes I am ready for Archie. How did you sis like the dvd. My new obsession is Girl with the Dragon Tatoo and no I’m not talking about the one in the theaters now. Netflix has it and it’s on On Demand. You will have to read but I promise you it’s the ish!!

For Real now slapping Celisea with some Vicks Vipor Rub!!!

Leggs: No but she wouldn’t have kept those letter if it would have been a 1 minute D please believe!!!

For Real now showing Leggs the difference between 1 minute D and the other D.

Leggs: Naw For Real I ain’t buying that she kept those letter because of the D.

For Real: I’m telling you she would not keep those letter if it was a 1 minute D.

Leggs: Trust me, it’s more to it than just the D.

For Real: Okay allow me to demonstrate the difference between a 1 minute D and the other D. Lets start with the 1 minute D first and then after my nap I’ll show you the othe D.

Marrying, having children and wanting to live the good life are not goals? What else is there outside of staying single for ever and never having children and making more money that what one makes already? Did I miss something here? I would think anything more that could be added would be included with “living the good life”

Not being funny just asking and wondering about some things people say.

Dan – They are both in their 90’s – if they are still able to get around, they need each other. I can understand a broken heart. But at this point, it seems it would be more trouble than it’s worth.

Yeah, she should have disposed of the letters. That’s why I think it was something very deep.

Dan – Just admit it…for once a woman did what men ALWAYS do and the roles are reversed. If she’s wrong she’s wrong but c’mon who gets a divorce at dang near 100 years old? By now they should have have so many ups and downs and forgiveness that he should be able to move on past it.
