Every year, various publications come out with their lists of best cities to be single in…undoubtedly NYC always makes the grade.
This week/weekend I’m in DC working and visiting. Having lived in DC for over 12 years, I have a great love and appreciation for the “town.” DC is a dichotomy of a transient melting pot focused on the political industry and a southern town. As I was sleeping in my spacious house in the burbs compared to my shoebox off of Central Park, the quiet became a little eerie…with no activity, doorman, bodega around the corner, I contemplated what the best city for singles truly is.
As the eternal romantic, I think you can meet your beshert on a plane. Since I have no flights scheduled, I’ll put that aside for now. Despite the complaints I have heard, I’m convinced there is no better place than NYC for no other reason than the number of people you encounter everyday in this walking city. And without question, there is never enough time to attend all the fun events or try the hottest new restaurant, while meeting your future “who knows”.
Even if some of my girlfriends who have lived in NYC for years are frustrated by the scene, I’m still the eternal optimist and think there is no better city to be single in. I guess I now adopted a New York State of Mind.
