The New York male and the London male: two species of dude so similar, in many respects they seem to have been separated at birth.
Both stomp triumphantly around financial and media capitals.
It's the only city where you will go out more and end up with to show for it.
For all the exhausted and confused women running around the island that seems to be throwing men in our face at the same rate as lamb kebabs, we can tell you why it's not working out: The number is not the problem, the problem is the quality.
Plus, many times these men are in absolutely no hurry to commit to one woman. They have way too many options with all of the single women out there more than willing to go out with them.
A lot of women in New York start to compromise what they really want in a man just to have a dating life.
There are 200,000 more single women than single men in the Big Apple, so men are kings here!
And I will be the first one to admit that most NYC men have a little bit of an entitlement issue when it comes to women. But I would call them "repercussionless daters." Their mentality is such that if the woman they are on a date with isn't giving them exactly what they want, they have no problem ending the date abruptly and moving on to the next woman, who they believe is around the corner waiting in desperation to go out with them.
I went and queued up at the Whitney (whitney.org) on a freezing Friday evening and found that, while some singles were mooching around, many were there on first dates. New Yorkers use Meet Up, a social networking app that’s more about finding something to do that interests you than going to an event aimed purely at singles.So I asked New York-based relationship experts, matchmakers, and authors Tamsen Fadal and Matt Titus to share some tips on how to find love (or at least a good time) in New York City.I have to say that New York City men have got it made.If you don’t, by that afternoon they might have matched with someone else instead.Yep, the biggest pulling area in NYC is the Meatpacking District. For rich bankers, go hang out on Wall Street on a Friday evening.
