New york city dating scene
I’ve seen guys in here twice a week with a different woman each time.I’ll go up to the guy, asking if he wants another Fat Tire, and she will be like, “This guy really knows you.”There’s a certain posture people have when they’re on a Tinder date. He comes in before the date, always, and buys one beer.
Many of them seem to agree that, chemistry aside, there is a palpable change in the dating scene — one that is alternatively sterile, less drunk, and, above all, a free-for-all.
A coworker joked to me that the Post article suggests other cities are full of ugly people, but there are plenty of attractive people all over the world (except in Florida where everything is terrible and I will not back down on this).
New York does have a thriving fashion industry, and a lot of models live here. If you frequently happen to date finance bros who dig models and you are not a model, things might not work out in your favor.
I’ve seen him on probably 30 dates over the year, and he doesn’t want to know us. The worst I ever saw was this dude who came in and ordered an Old Fashioned and waited. They started talking, and when I came back to them a while later, they were arguing. She gets up, intentionally knocks over her water, and walks out. He halfway pursues her, but then stops and puts his hands on his hips and turned to us, “Can I get another shot? I see a lot of people in their 30s using apps, but I see a lot of people in their early 20s actually engaging with each other. I won’t tell you which one it is, but all the bad dates happen there.
There’s this one regular here who makes maps of the bar with his Tinder dates, like a little bonding exercise.
