Guest Post: Big City Dating

Living as a single in a large city can be a lonely existence for someone who doesn't have a family or community support system. Many singles don't find it easy to meet other people in a big city, whether they're interested in friendship or dating. In addition, singles looking for a committed relationship may be reticent about expressing that sentiment. Yet if they can't make it clear that they're looking for a serious partner, they may attract people who don't share their goals.

Some singles appreciate their friends who try to "set them up" while others are offended, but in the best of circumstances, friends have their own lives and can quickly become weary of trying to find dates for their single friends. Singles can also weary of hearing their married friends tell them that they're being "too picky" or "not doing enough" to meet a partner.

Internet dating can also be frustrating. Dating sites are not always secure. Some online dating sites may include profiles of people who live across the country or even outside of the country. Profiles are often misleading, either intentionally or unintentionally so if a single wants to identify a person that will be a good match, the online profiles can create more problems than solutions.

The final option, meeting people at events, bars or parties often feels awkward and superficial. Singles often say that they feel pressured to make a connection at venues where the lights are low, the music is loud and the conversation feels shallow and phony.

The bright lights and excitement that big city living offers can bring new opportunities for singles of all ages but for those who are looking for a meaningful relationship, living in a large city can bring a certain level of loneliness that's not always easy to overcome.

At you will have a bit tough time. Do not panic, because we have so many collections that you will wonder which one to pick and which one to leave.

According to my friend who haven't tried having a boyfriend since birth that she preferred to be single rather to have a boyfriend who will only hurt her.

We, as her friends tend to set up some men for her so that she will not be ignorant but it doesn't fit on her taste.

She will really decline all our efforts in helping her finding her man. She will always tell us that she will have a boyfriend but not now and the question will be when is she going to try?if she is already in the mid 30's?

Could you help my friend? I will be glad to hear your tips for her.

When I was a bit younger, I used to worry about that a lot. I was always that girl who’ll sit alone in a bench in the park while almost all the other girls my age will be lovey-dovey with their boyfriends. I always tell myself that I will feel that soon. Maybe. Someday. Someone will fall in love with me.

But then came a time you feel pressured. So i started dating online i get to know different kinds of people online.

Just remembered my childhood time. Im not allowed to go outside at our house. even after school, i dont have a freedom to go with my friend.

And then one day, i tried to join social networks, dating sites. And im a bit contented that i can socialize/communicate somehow.
