Book on dating in your 30
I’m over the pastel shorts, the men who think that having a hot “girl” on their arms somehow makes him more of a man, and the hipsters who think that if they listen to Father John Misty maybe people won’t notice that they only date a woman if she fits into a certain dress size and ups his social capital.” “I’m married.
Every guy I meet is so invested in this bizarre idea of masculinity and vanity and traditional gender roles that say I’m supposed to look a certain way and talk a certain way and act a certain way, that I feel like there’s not any room for me to just be myself.My other complaint is that an inordinately high percentage of the single women here (based admittedly anecdotal and not empirical data) are either nurses or teachers.Not that there’s anything wrong with nurses or teachers (except teachers who are so boring), but it seems like it’s totally impossible to find a single woman in CLT who does something different. The irony is not lost on me, by the way, that the Southern ladies who are answering this poll are probably saying they can’t connect with northern guys and why are they all bankers (I’m not a banker).” “As someone from Atlanta, the dating scene is phenomenal in Charlotte.When I got to CLT I felt like everyone my age was married and having kids so I did and met my now husband within weeks.” “Terrible for singles with children.” “When I was doing online dating, all of the guys seemed the same.Frat-tactic, and that’s not my scene.” “Most men are metro sexual and so full of themselves.” “After many trials and tribulations in the Charlotte dating scene (including my first ever ghosting experience), I met my current boyfriend on Tinder.It seems like it’s all young guys that grew up in Charlotte and just came back to live off their parent’s money. ” “Women are either looking to immediately get married or have a one night stand – nothing in between.
In dating apps it is a very small pool of people.” “Everybody just wants to hookup.
If I’m not going on dates regularly, its by (my) choice.” “I don’t date because that would piss off my wife.” “Guy to girl ratio is much better than in college, where it was 70% girls.” “All the guys are literally cookie cutter: either young, cocky bankers or redneck country boys. Oh…married or gay….that’s right….” Being Jewish, the Jewish dating scene for Males ( I am) is tough, especially looking for a nice Jewish girl (NJG) “Everyone is a transplant so the urge to meet new friends and try new things is there sort of like a college town.
I’ve found that it’s like a big small city where everyone is looking to date but no one is looking to commit.” “CLT is a city of young professionals.
I ultimately had to turn to e Harmony.” “Online dating = B .
Real World Dating = D .” “Better for men than for women.” “Creativity, guys…not Netflix and chill.” “LAME; as a 31 year old single woman, every man I encounter is living the “cushy single boy lifestyle,” which I have determined is a result of: men being paid way too much in their current jobs, being way too comfortable being single (even though they say “they want a relationship”), and then when said relationship happens realizing it’s cramping their “cushy single boy lifestyle.” Needless to say – so grim on that front.” “Every man seems to be married, and if he isn’t married, he is not looking to date.” “Straight female here – there’s a severe shortage of really interesting, multi-faceted, and insightful men in this town.
Too many polo shirts.” “I think Charlotte has a lot of opportunities and cool spaces to meet people but it seems like there is a general fear of approaching people.
