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?

Did y’all remember to send our new “friends” the Welcome to MIA gift basket? They’ll probably want to use that BoneFish gift card tonight.

well – one plus in the old guy’s favor is that men generally die off sooner which means the numbers might be in his favor at the nursing home.

@ Celisea, I 100% agree with your comment about tag lines and wallets, etc. People need to accept responsibility for the outcomes that they, in most instances, created. Look first in the mirror.

Not taking into account ethnicity, orientation, or BMI, Atlanta may very well be the best dating city.

However, for straight white men, it is simply godawful.

White women in this city who are reasonably attractive/fit have a huge advantage, and most of them know it and wield it like a sledgehammer.

Sadly, I have actually considered moving out of the country to increase my odds. It’s gotten that bad.

Now chest hair…just going to have to live with it. After that Brazilian waxed my back and I was in the most pain I’ve ever felt almost, nevermore. After awhile, I ran out of curse words and just laid ther and whispered “fck” over and over til she ran out of that dayum tape or whatever it was.

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?

John – Why not? Because your male co-workers wouldn’t have it any other way. Their wives could not stay at home if they didn’t agree to it. That’s the expectation in those circles.

Your posts just seem to be a put-down. She is less cultured or accomplished if she chooses to be a stay-at-home mother. Most of the few “soccer moms” I know have advanced degrees, talents and skills. Many work from home also.

LoL @ Kym. Cruel but funny. Like I said before, I find ATL a buffet…and I am a single white guy. It isn’t that hard, I’m telling you. Does one get rejected sometimes? Yes. Does one have his hopes shot down occasionaly? Yes. But it is a nuimbers game, just like any sales job. You keep swinging until you connect.

Thanks for illustrating my point Kym. FTR, I am tall, athletic build, with almost all of my hair.

But keep it up; maybe if enough guys like me leave, and enough women (sic) like you stay, they can rename this place Insufferablekuntville in a few years.

@RandyT..I wasn’t trying to be cruel..but it is just so silly to keep blaming others for what you know to do. I know there is a good guy somewhere who hopefully is not short..and that I would match up with eventually..but if I never leave my house then how is he gonna find me. Kiss some frogs, toads, eventually you land a prince..or a well dress toad just depends.

@ KJ…don’t get too angry. This blog can be brutal sometimes. As I’ve said before on here, keep reassessing and reevaluating your dates. Stand outside and look at it like you were watching it on TV. Ask the questions to yourself, conversation one-sided maybe, reaching too high?, wrong type of lady?…

I always dissect my dates (not dissect the lady), I mean do a blow by blow objectively of what expectations did not occur and why. I truly try to be totally objective from everything from bad breath to wrong choice of wine. Then I go out with that list in my mind the next time. In the Army artillery they called it bracketing. Keep getting closer until ready to fire for effect.

kimmie – almost is the key word. girl, you been gut-checking folks on here all day. I wonder how many adults truly know what their faults are (dating or otherwise). seems like by a certain age you ought to know what’s wrong with you even if you have no desire to change it.

“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? ”

Washington, D.C. is the best place in the USA for Black men and women to find a date, and less discrimination looking for a job (no good-ole-boy network). ATL is not even close. That is a fact.
