Since mother nature has finally decided to catch up with the timeline and give us a real winter, it's cuddle up season. Where everyone is looking for their potentials beau's, while the rest of us stay bitter and warm our cold hearts with a semi broken heater. I can easily say I am in between.
When people come to New York they get so excited about what this city has to offer, from nightlife, job opportunity, and just an all around great social life. However where we do slack is LOVE LIFE. Don't expect to come to New York and meet the man of your dreams, you will definitely get a lot of test tries, and frogs, and even a few close calls.
It supposedly said that there are 7 women to every man in New York, so there is a good chance, I am sharing the guy I'm dating with 6 of you other women...but I'll be optimistic for now. So lets see how does it all begin again?
Oh yes, first we are on the million and one different dating apps, tinder, okcupid, the league, and so on. Because we all know people don't really have the time to actually meet people at a bar or lounge, because we are all stuck on our phones talking to someone we don't even care for to begin with. If you should happen to meet someone just hanging out, congrats, you are now in the 90's dating scene and I approve! But back to the bs dating apps.We start off by making a profile you'll probably hate, that usually reads "I'm a fun cool person, please pick me and don't be a weirdo". Depending on what's out there, this process can last anywhere from a few minutes to a few months. Then you finally get you first message or you can grow balls and send out your first message, whichever tickles your fancy,
You've gone back in forth a few times with a potential candidate and have finally set a date to meet. So you do what most of us do [at least I know I am a champion at], stalk all their social medias pages. Find out who the hell you are going out on date with, hopefully he turns out to be prince charming. After the jury in your head has decided he is ok, you are now figuring out what the hell you are going to wear. You have to find something cool, chic and yet down to earth, but must be fitting for your meet up. He probably isn't as tall as he claimed or she isn't as slim as she states on her profile, but after a few drinks and laughs, you are planning out your wedding.
It's been a few weeks, and you two have fallen into the "good morning beautiful" routine and you've forgotten what those lonely cold nights feel like. Everyone has been hearing about this significant other and they are all happy that you aren't going to be a miserable cat lady or man any more. However on a nighting out with friends you randomly see that same significant other cuffed up with a mystery person. This is when you found out, you are clearly one of the many. In this case, one of his 7, and it's up to you to decide how to handle it. Yet at the end of the day, you are back to you bitter cold heart watching sappy love movies, and screaming at the tv with a bucket of ice cream.
WELCOMING TO THE DATING SCENE OF NEW YORK CITY
Its up to you now to decide what's next...good luck!
