And the winner who showed up in sweatpants and couldn’t buy me a drink because he’d spent his last on a beer and wings special for himself. And there’ve been wonderful guys in the mix too, most of whom fizzled out because in this city, it’s just really hard to fit two people, and their ambitions, into one relationship. ”) Maybe a change of location — to New Bern, North Carolina; Miami, Florida; Austin, Texas; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Detroit, Michigan; and Los Angeles, California — was the answer.Things move so fast in New York that I only recently stopped to ask myself how I’d wound up here, over 35 and still single, but not always wanting to be. I’d already crossed the fuck-it-something's-got-to-give threshold of my New York dating life. If this trip had been a blind date, I would’ve walked out of the bar the second I saw New Bern’s offerings, via a terrifying night of Tindering.It’s followed by San Antonio, Texas (62.5); Boston, Mass. “We expect that each person surveyed rated their city based on their own personal experiences and observations of the dating scene in their city,” Andrew Woo, director of data science for Apartment List, told Bustle.“Factors that could influence these decisions include the number of singles in a similar demographic group, the availability of nightlife and community activities, and whether the city’s layout lends itself to general sociability and chance encounters.” Meanwhile, New York City, known for its ultra-competitive dating market, ranked 10th, with just 49.5 percent of its residents content. You have your own space to carry out whatever "gross" habits you want without worrying about another person, and you can dance to "Single Ladies" with total sincerity.That said, if you looking for a partner, you might like to know where you have the best odds of finding one.
Trulia, an online repository for real estate listings and housing data, recently went to town on U. Census data and broke down the dating pools within 100 of the largest U. These findings revealed some bad news for any Bostonian searching for a “marriage-material guy,” which Trulia describes as “a man in his 30s with at least a college degree who works the standard 40 hours a week or more and has never been married.” I’m sorry. The top spots for finding such a mystical creature are San Francisco (#1), San Jose (#2), Seattle (#3), Austin (#4) and San Diego (#5). Real-estate website Apartment List surveyed over 13,000 renters across the US to find the top 10 cities for dating in the country.” Raleigh, NC, took the top spot, with 66.7 percent of its residents satisfied with the dating scene.So, compared to other cities, the odds here aren’t good for pinning down an eligible guy. MYTH: Beantown boys get hitched before 30 — that is, if they're not too busy obsessing over their beloved sports teams.
