Far too often, dating can become an all-consuming enterprise that sucks the joy out of the dating process and even their life. You don’t need to go to the bar to meet a great guy.You can find the right kind of man simply by going to the places you already enjoy. Take a few gym classes and see who catches your eye.
Not that any of these things have ever happened to me. Unlike in NYC and LA, the people you date will not have professional headshots on their online profiles.Most people don't want to date someone who lives too far away, and in Boston, “too far away” usually means the other side of the Charles. They’re more likely to post selfies of themselves in graphic T’s and enormous, name-brand headphones.Often, the problem is with the guy, but there are also dating mistakes and habits that you can avoid making as well.For one, don’t get down on yourself if a date didn’t turn into anything more. In today’s day and age, that means avoiding frequent and aggressive texting.In winter, Bostonians will take an Uber to get to the T because paying to avoid five minutes of frigid air is totally worth it.
In the years before car sharing, we probably would have slept over just to delay the inevitable and horrible trek back to our apartment.Only a small pool of men bothers with belts and button-downs around here.Women wear flats on coffee dates and almost everywhere else (because cobblestone streets are hell on stilettos).Outside of Silicon Valley, Boston is one of the biggest tech cities in the country, so everybody has 9,000 different apps to manage their social lives.If you don’t actually watch your date entering info into their smart phone, don’t expect them to remember it.Whether it is at your favorite bookstore, coffee shop or sporting event, the more open you are to meeting people, the greater your chance for success will be.
