Everyone(especially the attractive ones) gets locked up real quick. Not as many options out there like nyc, Boston, etc. There are more single girls in nyc than guys, there's a lot of talent to choose from.

Love Houston, but the dating scene was pretty rough

Dec 6, 2019

Why did you find this to be the case?

Was it owing to the ratio of [available] females to males, or the personality of Houston women,or the appearance of Houston women, or the culture of Houston itself, or some other factor[s]?

It's got to be better than equities in Dallas.

They really are. I got sent out to SF for 4 months once for a project, with a fellow NY colleague. We'd get lunch together everyday and noticed after a few days that we weren't seeing any attractive girls. After a while we started calling it "the girl of the month" as in, any time one of us saw one we'd point her out to the other saying that's the girl of the month because that's the hottest girl we'll see all month.

SF - average girl is a 6, any tinder dates will be a catfish as the girl will usually come 100-200 basis points below your initial rating of her. lack of any attractive white girls, and any asian girl above a 7 is dating an 11/10 european guy that is a model and rock climber.

UC Berk - good, Stanford - average, USF - avoid

LA - best looking women, average girl is a 7.5. if you have banker money you want to live closer to the ocean: santa monica, venice, manhattan beach, el segundo. that being said the high waisted jean, artsy fartsy, tight, hot gal can't afford to and lives downtown and goes to regular kick ass roof top parties. unfortunately thats the only good thing about downtown, its Fallujah Iraq during the day. If you want to get that hot girl, you're gonna have to bite the bullet and live downtown. (i didn't and the women i dated were attractive but they were also all spoiled sorority girls and not the artsy girls wearing balenciaga triple s -- that make you want to give up finance and struggle with her in the trenches of teen angst)

Art Community College - excellent, HS Drop out - average, USC/LMU/UCLA - avoid

NYC - great looking women, average girl is a 7. not a ton of experience, just interned here but was catfished numerous times by moby dick. becareful~! managed to date a few solid 8's from NYU. Had to pretend I was vegan, but that was because I was super into bi vegans at the time

Columbia - ok, NYU - ok, Baruch - shoot on sight

I live in A suburb of LA and I can't name anyone that lives in DTLA lol- it's pretty bad with the homeless population/tent cities.

Anyone with the ability and means to do so drives in for the night and avoids it during the day. (Rich areas are the exception, ofc)

First and foremost dating is a numbers game and considering that all the west coast cities have more men than women you can cross them off the list. Meanwhile I've read that the Midwest and northeast cities have more women than men so big cities lik NYC, Chicago, or Boston (lots of universities) are probably your best bet. Everyone I know who has lived in NYC or Chicago say its great for dating (be prepared to spend $$$ if in NYC). While I've never lived in Miami (visited though and have friends who live there), I've heard its a pretty good place as well.

I can speak from experience from growing up in Seattle that its NOT a good place date unless ugly girls are your type. In Seattle, you often see guys that are between an 8-10 in looks dating a girl who is a 2-4. The PNW in general is known for its hairy leftist mountain girls so beware. There are so many ugly women between Seattle and San Francisco it doesn't surprise why a lot of guys become gay. Whats weird is once you cross the Canadian border to Vancouver BC the girls look waaaayyy better.

When I lived abroad in Shanghai, dating was almost too easy. The only way I can imagine a white guy being single in Shanghai is a) you're gay, b) you're mentally retarded or missing limbs, or c) you have the willpower of a thousand unuchs

I currently live in Honolulu and dating out here is a mixed bag for long-term dating, but one of the best places for short-term/one night stands. Local girls out here are either great or retarded and nothing really in between. However, the one benefit is what I refer to as the "charlie sheen effect" where you basically meet hot babes, bang em on their vacation, and then they fly back home. Whats even better is unlike Mr. Sheen, It really didn't cost me anything (though it might be beneficial to buy dinner for those hot Australian twins).

I went to this dude's show in NYC circa 2014 and had a drink with him at the after party.
https://www.greatlovedebate.com/2017
He claims the Midwest is an untapped territory of quality females (think MN/WI/MI/IL/IN). I recall a lot more natural blonde hair while growing up and now visiting Chicago compared to the bleachy black root look I see around NYC.

Some of his funny rants.
1. East Coast - Lots of gold diggers. Ladies only care how much money men make.
2. West Coast - Lots of fake folks. Women want to be respected as a lady while wearing 4 inch heels with a big fake chest/chin/nose/lashes/etc.
3. Seattle/Denver - Men want to hike while women want to craft.
4. Everywhere else, women want an instant committed relationship while the men want instant s3x.

He didn't have too much to add about TX or FL.

It was a fun show. I met a few females after the show, exchanged numbers, and even partied with a few in later weeks.

Can confirm the Midwest statement.

Loads of hunnies, especially blondes, who are obviously high quality, intelligent, and more down to earth that your LA/NYC girls. Plus, a lot of them are rich but don't show it. Unless you went to a private school and then of course there are those rich skanks who let everyone know.

Don't live in Tampa, live in St. Petersburg. Tampa and St. Pete can be a little bit rough in some parts so downtown St.Pete is the best option. The women/area is beautiful with tons of bars and it is way better than Tampa in terms of bar hopping/dating with ease of walking and everything. I lived dt and loved it, did not even visit Tampa too often.

I am a virgin who has barely touched a girl and I'm in SF. I also moved here several months ago from Massachusetts. I've tried all the dating apps but I don't have the physical stature and appearance to win over a fuck or bad boy. How do you recommend I get laid or find a girl?

Does approaching girls in public on the streets work? I think I have enough confidence to pull it off. I don't want to do bars that much because I don't have any friends and don't want to be alone and just randomly jump into a group. Most importantly, I don't want my coworkers seeing me lolol. Can you guys let me know if approaching girls in public works? I see a lot of pretty girls in SF who I would never imagine would be on dating apps and I really want to try to ask them out given everyone thinks SF has virtually no hot girls.

Can confirm the negatives about Los Angeles in this thread, specifically if you are looking for a high quality woman for the long term. Also can confirm that you should always avoid the UCLA/USC chicks. It's not as bad as SF as the women out here are pretty, but many of the egos out here are astronomically high.

Chicks here are like cars you buy here:
Always lie about the mileage and don't turn over in the morning when its sub 60 degrees.

Its also one of the widest spread cities in the country, so if you live out in the Santa Monica area, you are are stuck in the west side, if you live in Pasadena, you are stuck in the land of trustfund girls, Armenians, and yellow fever, and if you live in DTLA, you have typhus.

That being said, Orange county, specifically Newport Beach and Laguna areas, have some of the warmest and friendliest well-to-do girls west of Texas. There is also some cute and religious women up in the north Hollywood/Santa Clarita area if you are looking to tie the knot. Your commute will still suck

There is nothing cozier than dating a Newport Beach preppy girl, reading the 48 Laws of Power on Balboa Peninsula in the morning while she gets the sailboat ready in the backdrop of the Newport Center Skyline before going into the office at 9. Well, besides Nantucket, but our weather is better.

With all of this being said, what is your way of meeting them? In this era, is everyone now on dating apps? (e.g. hinge, bumble, CMB)

Dec 18, 2019

How did I miss this thread?

At a high level, we need to divide men into 2 groups: the elite and the mere mortals. The former is usually tall good looking successful white men; these bros will crush it anywhere, and they laugh at threads like this. For the latter, you have to be more strategic and honestly assess your strengths and weaknesses. These traits include height, looks, race, money, pedigree, hobbies, family background. To women, it's all fair game.

NYC: it's true that there are more women than men, but this is deceptive because the statistic includes women of all ages. If you look at single women in their 20s and 30s, there are actually more men than women. NYC is also home to some of the wealthiest and successful men on the planet. Good luck getting top talent if you're an average Joe making $300K/year in banking, slaving away on Excel and PowerPoint. NYC is a rich man's playground.

Chicago: much more down to earth than NYC. If you're an average fratty white guy who possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of sports and can drink Natty Light like it's water, this is your Mecca. Even a dad bod is fine, as long as you have a decent job, was in the right frat, and has lot of Midwestern friends. If you are not white, your mileage may vary.

Seattle: you are a white guy with a powerful Asian fetish that cannot be denied or you are ok with not getting laid because the Amazon/Microsoft RSUs are your sustenance.

SF: same as Seattle with respect to white guys with a powerful Asian fetish, not quite as bad as Seattle because there actually are a decent number of attractive women who have moved there in the past 5 years due to the tech firms maturing and hiring women in jobs such as marketing, HR, product, finance. But good luck landing them unless you are a white CHAD with the chiseled jaw of a young Richard Gere, degrees from Harvard/Stanford, and a job at an elite PE/VC/HF or founder of a unicorn.

LA: hottest women in the country. The physical talent is mind blowing. But as the posters above articulated, the city is super spread out, so distance is a major hinderance to one's social life. If you live in santa monica/venice/marina del rey, going out to Hollywood might as well be a long distance relationship. Downtown? Forget about it! In addition, the LA women are super flaky and shallow. A typical date conversation will involve them bragging about how many IG followers they have and giving you a hard time if you don't have an iPhone. The odds of meeting an attractive smart successful woman in LA is extremely slim.

Finally, it is important to note that dating apps has exacerbated female hypergamy, making the dating scene significantly worse for men. Studies show that the top 1% of men get around 80% of matches, and with the abundance of choices available through apps, vast majority of men are screwed. This trend will only get worse, as apps are now the #1 way couples are meeting. The long-term social and cultural trend will be devastating as young men will increasingly become sexless, frustrated, and angry.

With dating apps becoming the #1 way that couples are being made, how truly do the average to above average men stand out? I feel like I'd be better off if I approached a beautiful woman on the streets...yeah, I'm talking day game. I mean seriously though, how else would you get the chance to even talk to or be seen and not left swiped by a 7,8,9? I feel like dating apps make it so even if you're a good catch, the woman will think the person right after you in the queue will be slightly taller than you and maybe look cuter. I've thought this myself as I swipe through women.

I am genuinely considering approaching women on the street and trying to get their numbers. I am sometimes in the SF area and feel considering the vibe of nerdy tech guys that many beautiful women don't get approached that often in the day (in the bars, probably all the time)

Dec 30, 2019

I can attest to this. I'm still in college but dating aps very heavily skew the game. I have 10x more success just meeting women in natural settings (bars, class, friends of friends) than dating apps. Definitely not a chad, but the amount of matches I get are disproportionate relative to what I can pull in real life. I suspect some of this may be because my pictures and bio look like shit, but who the fuck knows

Dec 31, 2019

Its because girls mostly are all going for the top 5% of guys on the apps

Dec 21, 2019

I had the most success in NYC and Philly. I feel like DC could be alright too.

Basically avoid anywhere that's rural or suburban and stay on the east coast.
