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?

whew. y’all are cutting up this afternoon. the good life is way relative. just last night my son (who headed home today) commented that eating fresh baked cookies with a glass of cold milk was the good life. glad I know his aspirations are greater than just milk and cookies.

I don’t think the good life necessarily have to include children either but having children, getting married and living well are the things that most folks end up doing. I guess I don’t understand what else there is. Living well mean to me whatever path you took where you’re satisfied…kids or not, married or not…

So John the CPA what else are you looking for? Then you said 6 or 7 (I think)women. IMO with them all having a common thread but yet none satisfying you….

I think that’s our daily troll(er), inciting an off the wall conversation. Just like the question what would you do if you woke up without a vagina

Any man beyond the age of 18 would’ve known to throw those away – or hide ‘em in a safe deposit box or hole in the backyard – something other than keeping them.

According to the article, this isn’t their first separation. They hit a rocky patch about 10 years ago, and he went to live with their son.

Kimmie,
I left Boston to work for KPMG in their Atlanta office. I’m not saying that’s there is anything wrong with having children. But it just seems that the ladies here in Atlanta have less ambition than what I’ve seen in other areas of the country.

I’ve talked to some of my new co-workers here in Atlanta about their families and most of them tell me that their wives do not work outside the home. Why not? Is it a southern thing? In the Boston office it seemed that after a female co-worker had a baby she took a brief sabatical and came back to work. But here in Atlanta there seem to be few women with children working in our office. And I heard endless stories about women who “left to start a family” and haven’t been seen since. The attitude women have regarding work and career seems to be a little different here.

@ Leggs, I’ve seen men that women wouldn’t touch, but I’ve never seen a woman who couldn’t find some desperate guy to “fill in the gap”. She’ll get lucky before he does, I guarantee it. Even at 96.

Dan – From what I heard, she didn’t tell him anything. He found out by finding the letters. After all this time, she might have even forgot she had them.

In packing to move right before I got married, I ran across 2 old letters from a past boyfriend. One was the “Dear Jane” letter and the other was the one begging me back!LOL!! I admit I thought I had thrown them away. There are no lingering feelings at all and reading back, they were actually a bit funny. But in the trash they went!

@John ~ the South doesn’t necessarily work the same way the North does…although many of the men and women here are transplants. It seems like once a person gets a whiff of this southern air, stay at home moms are more frequent than what we are used to seeing. There are many here, but if the household can stay afloat on one income, why not. What I don’t understand is why not go for the two paychecks….I’m greedy that way.

Its very hard for a married man in Atlanta to go out and have fun. Too many single ladies looking for a date…I just want to dance, talk, have some drinks and then go home to the wife. Single ladies stop going out with 5 and 6 lady friends at a table its a turn off to my single buddies.

John – In the circles I run in, woman are said to be too career-driven. And a lot of working mothers are single and don’t have the option to stay home. In more conservative and wealthy settings, more traditional values are respected. Most of the families I know of cannot afford to have a stay-at-home parent. If the family finances dictate it and it’s what the couple wants, I think it’s a beautiful thing.

If you can’t find a career-oriented woman here, I don’t know what to tell you. Could be you are running in the wrong circles.

U think oral sex was popular by the time the 96 was growing up…and in his teens?

I’m sure if not, he’s really pining for that..

Hope his heart is still strong enough to enjoy with Viagra

If his retirement benefits are good he will catch a young obliging chic soon
