Thirty, 50, 70 years ago, dating in the city set itself to a different tune: There were phone calls! From landlines! Blind dates! Subway meet-cutes! Vintage charm aside, dating back then came with its own set of woes and stock complaints, as explored in popular culture with… some dedication. Which begs the question: Before the emergence of internet courtship, was dating better or worse?

Unlike SF where this is due to anti-social tendencies, the reason here is that everyone is in a rush and has something better to do. Most people meet others at bars and restaurants. Taxis, food orders, attention at the bar, seats on the subway and crossing the street are the simple things that reinforce and train folks to be aggressive in NYC. Everyone is in a rush.

Guys in Manhattan often like a kid in a candy store making it difficult for women to seek out relationships in New York City. Anonymity in San Francisco is due to corporate buses, uber rides, late working hours, early closing hours of places in the city, hills, cold weather, unsafe streets or creatures of habit who quickly retreat into their SOMA high rise never to be heard or seen from again unless on a Zoom call, video game competition, boba bar or waiting in line for brunch.

Everyone is multi-tasking, everyone is in a conference call. No one wants to be sober only to arrive home and hear their unruly neighbors fighting, partying or having loud awkward sex. There are no dead-zones like Noe Valley and Laurel Heights that are known for stroller crowds and lack of single folks. Subtle problems can be swept under the rug unintentionally as things are moving so quickly that few people slow down to process everything. This skill is sorely missed among folks who spend their lives behind computer monitors. NYC is a hodgepodge of Wall Street bros, acting professionals, musicians, painters, grad students, performing artists, tech employees, entrepreneurs, celebrities and endless characters.

Ask some girls in San Francisco, and it can be months since the last time a guy approached them. Even places like the Upper West Side which some New Yorkers refer to as a suburban feeling, has more energy, speed, diversity and options than any part of San Francisco. In San Francisco, the options are limited, in New York, the options are endless but seem great upon first impressions. These are usually the traits that weigh guys down in SF. Walk too slow and people will run you over. Ability to make eye contact, strike a random conversation and energy exuded is invigorating when compared to the West Coast.

Btw, a strong contingency of New Yorkers refuse to step foot north of 14th street.

This means different outfits and usually people who dress with a purpose. The city can wear people down easily without them noticing.

Dating apps make it harder as one will never run out of profiles to swipe on. In New York City, guys seek out new girls in town like vultures. As someone who considers himself as in introvert with extrovert tendencies, I feed off the energy, opportunity and vibe of people and places wherever I go whether its traveling, dining, working from cafes, exploring places to take photos or just taking in things in for their scenic appeal, nostalgic connection to history or culture of the people that make it wherever I am great.

Everyone is on their A-game in NYC. No slouches, no slow people, no indecisiveness, no lack of drive — NYC filters these people out naturally. Some people use dating as an excuse to network for work or make friends.

With such diversity comes eye-candy. With so much going on it can be hard for couples to settle down, discuss life plans or focus on core issues to their relationship without gravitating towards the next new restaurant, show, bar, concert, outing with friends, exhibit etc. Subway rides, mid-rises, waitlists, bar seating, rooftops and summer picnics are filled with an abundance of single people. There is so much to take in that one loses track and oftentimes focus on what they want, where they are going and what will fill their soul.
