Just moved up to NYC. Outside of apps, what’re some good ways to explore the dating scene? #NYC

    If male, most hobbies have groupies. Get good at a hobby: music, fitness, running swimming, skiing. Easier to meet if you have something in common.

      Enthusiasts if you will.

      And males aren’t “enthusiasts”. You could’ve skipped that whole first sentence and your advice would’ve been great.

      Except that women don't usually date down in such a group. It happens for sure just not as often.

      Haha yeah sure, but I’m pretty sure those studies are related to income and education, not how fast you can run a mile or how well you play a guitar..

      If you do this with 100 hot girls, would it work on 5 of them?

    Hard to get lasting things at bars on a crowded weekend, what social events are fun for young professionals. Or also good clubs/nyc organizations? Thanks guys

      Try joining some groups on Meetups. The Skint offers daily free or cheap events happening all around NYC.

    Go to a bar, cafe, events and strike up a conversation with whoever catches your eye. If you feel a connection: go for it and ask for their number.

    Go to bars, talk to people.
    Go to events, talk to people.
    Make friends and expand your social circle, and you will probably start meeting people to date.

    Apps are bonkers in NYC. True you get lots of matches (Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, etc) but a lot of people use them for trolling because there's so many more options out there
