The dating loft
The only way it matters is if you meet a date who balks at the idea of taking the subway into another borough.If you get that vibe from someone on a date, then its just better to move on because why waste time on a guy who thinks taking the subway to Bklyn is too "inconvenient" for him?? I remember when I was single (recently got married to a guy I met on LI) I dated a ton of guys in NYC - all ranging from Manhattan Wall Street types (typically the hardest to date because they generally are not marriage minded and love to casually date as a form of personal entertainment) to the Brooklyn starving artists.You're not going to have a "perfect" relationship with anyone--there will always be something you'll have to compromise on.I think many people, women and men alike, are looking for someone who is so "perfect" for them that there are never any conflicts or compromises.It always amazes me when such women are 'shocked' to learn hubby isn't satisfied with Mary Poppins, is screwing around and ready to file for divorce. All you Mary Poppins, ever wonder what hubby is doing half the n ight on the Internet? NYC with not only the hottest and most fashionable women in the country, but also the most intelligent.
In a town of accomplished people, wouldn't you want an accomplished women? If that was what a guy wanted, he could have stayed home and married the fat chick and lived happily ever after.They do this somewhat unconsciously and probably would deny it if you brought it up.You're not going to have a "perfect" relationship with anyone--there will always be something you'll have to compromise on. The problem is that for both men AND women, dating is tough because of the multiple choices in dating partners. Women 'looking to get married' are just plain boring.Attractive single men and women will face temptation everywhere they turn in NYC, whether its at Starbucks or at work. I've always found it totally weird how in other places a 'date' is like the first step on the road to marriage. Too many women are simply looking for some dope to financially support them while they stay home playing real life 'house'.
