It is a somewhat pathetic scene, but it can be rather amusing to watch from outside. Dating in San Francisco or dating in Los Angeles can be a much easier task. I also think London is a pretty good place for dating, with plenty of men from all over the World.
So, dating in NYC is hard, but you should still enjoy the ride. European men are tall, attractive, well-dressed, well mannered.
During my 9 years in NYC, I noticed how difficult and lonely this city can be especially for single girls.
All my friends were beautiful, smart and yet they were all single.
Finally, here was a venue to express what I'd suspected all along: I have great taste. For me, Pinterest became an expression of my singular personal style that I couldn't always manifest in real life: an eclectic dream home combining mid-century Danish with a slightly preppy vibe; and a cool-girl wardrobe anchored in black leather and men's dress shirts. I curiously clicked over to see the profile of someone with such similar, varied taste, and was immediately hooked.
I found myself repinning pretty zealously before thinking to check out who the person was.
The New York dating scene is unique in a way, because everyone is always single and everyone wants to hook up.In this city, people work hard and play even harder.Many people go out every night and they enjoy a drink or two.

It started with 14 new notifications, all in a row, and all from the same pinner: He'd repinned my recipe for chicken and figs, a vintage fashion editorial, a few crisp white sofas, among other things.Guys have way too many choices and no incentive to settle down. They are everywhere, but most of them are toxic bachelors.NYC is one of the most superficial cities in the World. Every single time a guy walked up to me at a party, they would ask me what I was doing for living (to check how well off I was), where I lived (again to check if I can afford to live in a fancy neighborhood), who I knew at the party (check how connected I was).
