Wouldn't it be nice to have some expert advice on New York City dating etiquette and get some pointers on what NOT to do?
Unfortunately, I have been out of the dating game for years and was never very good at it to begin with.
Plus, many times these men are in absolutely no hurry to commit to one woman. They have way too many options with all of the single women out there more than willing to go out with them.
A lot of women in New York start to compromise what they really want in a man just to have a dating life.
The best way for a woman to date in New York City is to keep it casual and make sure that any man interested in her understands that she is dating other guys. It immediately gives the message to the guy that other men are interested in her, which validates him and his interest in her.
Secondly, men love to compete against one another when it comes to female attention.
By telling him that he is one of many other guys vying for her attention, it will make him want to be the best of the rest and try really hard.
I recommend uncontrived environments: Central Park dog runs, Whole Foods, and running clubs.Charity events and volunteer groups are also great.Chelsea Piers and Harry's Cafe on Wall Street are also very man-friendly places.When I arrived as a Brit to New York, I had a boyfriend back home at the time, so navigating the NYC dating scene wasn’t one of those things that appeared on my list of questions to fellow transplants.However, when it became a matter that I needed to tackle, I quickly realized that dating in NYC was a whole other ball game.Unlike London where guys do not make a habit of chatting you up at a bar (they’re a little shy), American boys are very confident in this arena.
