Dating. Everyone’s gotta do it if they want to propagate the species (it’s very important to do that). And yet, possibly because men are from Mars and women are from Venus, the two sexes just can’t seem to agree to put aside small differences to keep humanity from dying out. According to dating website AYI, nowhere is that more true than right here in Brooklyn, where a survey they took deemed Brooklyn women the pickiest daters in the entire world. Tell us fellas, is this a true fact?
The survey examined how women all over the US responded to messages from potential online suitors. Women from Brooklyn, they found, were the least likely to respond to messages. In places like Jersey City and Miami, the almost 500,000 women surveyed were more likely to at least say hello after getting pinged.
We have our doubts about this survey, especially since it only relates to the world of online dating. The one thing the survey didn’t go into was why exactly Brooklyn women are so allegedly picky. In our last foray into pop psychology, Tim posited that it’s not so much that Brooklyn women are picky as it is Brooklyn dudes are just endlessly disappointing by never taking advantage of the dating opportunities out there for them. And the fact that Friends of Single People, in which you put your dating life into someone else’s hands, draws plenty of women at least curious enough to ask about your problems with ecclesiastical Latin indicates a pretty low level of pickiness on the part of Brooklyn’s female population.
Guys, let’s have a little bro-down here, no girls allowed. Do you find you have to work harder than ever to get your online dating game off the ground? What about trying to get dates outside of the internet? Especially let us know if you came here from somewhere else and can compare your time in the online dating mines in say, La Jolla, California to what it’s like here.
