It's a city of ambition and all those ambitious men want to dominate not just the game, but the track surrounding it.There's nothing worse than the New York Man who is so damn pumped to be in New York. Men who aren't obsessed with their “sick life” and their “sick apartment” are just out there trying to get one.Why should they make the move when there are so many women who can just make the move on them?
While brunch is great and we love it with our girlfriends and even a nice one-night stand, nothing says New York Man more than guy who doesn't know how to make his own eggs.
Men of New York may be the richest, smartest and most successful, but that doesn't mean they know how to see the big picture.
By no means am I trying to bring down the men of New York.
In no way do I want to slander all four million men inhabiting the greatest city in the world because I know you're not mean they're the Greatest Men in the World.
“If I bumped into him on the street I’d say, ‘Let’s go for coffee.’ If I bumped into one of my ex-boyfriends in Britain, I don’t think I’d be as forthcoming.” But be warned single ladies in NYC: not everyone you’ll meet online is friend-worthy, let alone bed-worthy.
“For two hours, all one guy talked about was food and the science of food,” Abigail recalls.Dating people in other boroughs qualifies as a long-distance relationship. If it helps, once we really like one of you, the other four are history within an hour. "He wants to go to Neil's on Third," we will tell our friends. He's really serious about you," they will say if it's a great bar, and, "Ugh, maybe you should just cancel," they will say if it's a bad one. There are certain parts of town we can't even go near because they remind us of our exes. So telling me you'll meet me "around 9" will result in us meeting up "around never."10. Especially if you don't make reservations near my office and want me to meet you there at 7. This city is so full of places to fall in love with and things to be excited about and we want to do all of it.If you live in the Bronx and I don't, you are not my soul mate. And if you are, I'm sorry but that commute is no fucking joke and I simply cannot. One group text is sent and we're all yours (JK, JK). Our city is pretty compact, so even though it might sound nuts to be like, "I can't go to the East Village," that's actually like saying, "I don't love going near Exit 19B" on the highway in most other cities, so it's pretty reasonable. We're like that Eminem song: You only get one shot. We live in a city of go-getters and we most likely are one ourselves, so you better be able to make a plan. It'll easily take me 30 to 45 minutes to get there, and that's if all the trains haven't mysteriously shut down because of construction no one believes will actually ever fix anything, but that's a whole other thing. Which means we probably don't want to just "come over and hang out" for the majority of our first few dates.13. If you fuck up with us once, there are a billion freaking single people in this city, so if you're a jerk but you're hot, you're in no way the last hot person we'll ever meet. Once we're into you, we will make you a priority over all of our 12,000 other priorities. To say the men of New York are “of a different breed” is like when Lindsay Lohan said she “only did drugs four or five times." It's what PR specialists call "putting it gently." Because any woman who has lived, is living or is thinking about leaving New York knows, there is no breed to define the New York Man.We're not sure when it happened, but the mullet of the 70s has been creeping its way on top of the male head for the last 40 years and landed in a tight ball on top of one too many men who refuse to stay confined to their Brooklyn lofts. They can't help that with the plethora of beauty around them, they don't even want to think of "wasting time" with just one.
