We recommend you give this site a go — even if you don't find your soulmate, you will have a great deal of fun here!» more Mike & Caren: «After coming really close to giving up on finding someone who was right for me I have finally found her dating profile and realised — this is the woman I want to spend my entire life with!Then maybe you go back to his or her place to play the game "everything but..." (This one might have actually happened.) That’s the beautiful part of New York dating.A good first date can last all day and maybe even into the next and can be something truly memorable, even if the other "stuff" doesn't end up that way. There’s always another bar, another meet-up group, another Tinder match. However, with the chapter of my dating life officially closed (I hope), I like to think I learned a couple things.It will probably take you days, if not weeks, to admit to your friends that it happened, but it’s a fact: you will be stood up. My career was always at the forefront, but since I'm a living, breathing human, it was also my intention to land a partner at some point.So, like any single woman in the city, I went through the motions of dating, having flings and a couple of short relationships in the hopes of finding “the one.” Before I met my fiancé — not in New York City mind you — I had been dating in this town for almost ten years; ten long and arduous years of ups and downs, drama, tears, joy and the rest of it. New Yorkers have a different idea of what love is, and for a lot of us, it’s not even a priority until later on in the game.

Or someone to call "babe" every Sunday morning at brunch at The Smith. Like, literally, around the corner you can see right now.

There are so many damn people you would think it’d be easier, but it’s not. What makes New York equally amazing and horrible for dating is the sheer number of options.

Some people are dating purely for the stories, whether they know it or not. In New York, Tinder is so accepted as a means of meeting that elusive attractive individual who lives three blocks from you and ALSO loves hamentashen, you might not even lie to your grandparents about it. There’s a ton of awesome stuff to do in the city, and since you probably have an awesome and more chill time doing it with your established friends, you’re not likely to risk doing anything "fun" on your list with a potentially lame stranger. If the date goes badly, inevitably you end up doing something super awkward like saying goodbye and then walking to the train in the same direction and slowly trying to fall back.

You don’t want to blow it immediately after your first by seeming too eager.

But you don’t want to let too much time pass, either. There’s too much possibility for something better right around the corner.
