I used to live in Charleston and the dating scene was the worst.” “Seriously.Every guy I meet is so invested in this bizarre idea of masculinity and vanity and traditional gender roles that say I’m supposed to look a certain way and talk a certain way and act a certain way, that I feel like there’s not any room for me to just be myself.
Where are all the hairy dudes who like smart girls and wear skirts?
Where are the guys who really step out and are so different and think globally and want to subvert gender roles and white supremacy and the status quo?
If I’m not going on dates regularly, its by (my) choice.” “I don’t date because that would piss off my wife.” “Guy to girl ratio is much better than in college, where it was 70% girls.” “All the guys are literally cookie cutter: either young, cocky bankers or redneck country boys. Oh…married or gay….that’s right….” Being Jewish, the Jewish dating scene for Males ( I am) is tough, especially looking for a nice Jewish girl (NJG) “Everyone is a transplant so the urge to meet new friends and try new things is there sort of like a college town.
I’ve found that it’s like a big small city where everyone is looking to date but no one is looking to commit.” “CLT is a city of young professionals.
I ultimately had to turn to e Harmony.” “Online dating = B .
Real World Dating = D .” “Better for men than for women.” “Creativity, guys…not Netflix and chill.” “LAME; as a 31 year old single woman, every man I encounter is living the “cushy single boy lifestyle,” which I have determined is a result of: men being paid way too much in their current jobs, being way too comfortable being single (even though they say “they want a relationship”), and then when said relationship happens realizing it’s cramping their “cushy single boy lifestyle.” Needless to say – so grim on that front.” “Every man seems to be married, and if he isn’t married, he is not looking to date.” “Straight female here – there’s a severe shortage of really interesting, multi-faceted, and insightful men in this town.
Charlotte has become very superficial and everybody is waiting for something better to come along than focusing on what they have in front of them. I think the dating scene is exceptional despite what all my friends would tell you. Bonus: Men are typically not photogenic so you’re usually in for a pleasant surprise when you meet them.
I am just as guilty in this, but it is a product of the environment we are in.” “If I meet one more guy who works in finance and whose primary hobby is drinking I will lose my mind.” “I dated most everyone who had both a face and a job on Tinder. “I’m really not into the bro’d out, preppy, Vineyard Vines type. Give me diversity and some hunka hunka outdoorsy guys.” “For an ex Special Forces guy it’s pretty easy pickins in this city of metrosexual girly men…especially since most of them are candy asses from up north…” “CLT is full of people who are committed to their career first and relationship second.
I’m over the pastel shorts, the men who think that having a hot “girl” on their arms somehow makes him more of a man, and the hipsters who think that if they listen to Father John Misty maybe people won’t notice that they only date a woman if she fits into a certain dress size and ups his social capital.” “I’m married.
Do people date anymore or just Snap their genitals to interested parties?
When I got to CLT I felt like everyone my age was married and having kids so I did and met my now husband within weeks.” “Terrible for singles with children.” “When I was doing online dating, all of the guys seemed the same.
