One of the major disadvantages of Chicago as opposed to NYC is that virtually all quality women who are 25+ are married, engaged, or in long-term relationships. Given that I'm 30 years old and would like to meet someone it's been quite frustrating. I have gone to young professionals events, tried match, and tried to meet women at bars (which always ends up being a debacle).
Aside from going to a top business school (which are filled with smart attractive women and a very easy place to meet quality women), what else can I do? Advice would be greatly appreciated. My social life is awful right now, and I'm trying to make improvements.
