What is Dating in New York City Like? Should I Move To New York From San Francisco? What Are The Male To Female Gender Ratios? Is Dating In New York Hard?

When I get asked about what dating is like in New York both offline and offline, it’s with the context of guys in San Francisco and San Jose looking to take advantage of gender ratios in the East Coast. Make no mistake, areas in the Peninsula and South Bay are brutal for guys. Some areas and demographics (at least for dating apps) can be a 2.5 to 3.0 to 1 ratio guys to girls. That’s enough for some guys to give up dating altogether especially when women can outnumber men 1.2 to 1 in NYC in some age brackets.


As an online dating photographer and someone who has worked with thousands of clients I am here to say online dating sucks. It is something you will not hear from any other person in my position but it is true. Why would I say this? Easy. Most people have no clue what they are doing and have no clue why they are experiencing the results they do.

I can bucket the reasons why people are so miserable with dating apps into a few categories.

Self-sabotage of Photos, Profiles and Answers

Most people take awful photos, boring cliche photos, don’t know…

If you have spent any time on any major dating site or app whether it’s Hinge, Coffee Meets Bagel, Bumble, Tinder or OkCupid, you will notice a certain trend in photos across men’s and women’s profiles — the same types of photos used on what seems to be every profile.

Using cliche or boring photos makes it really tough to stand out from the competition on dating apps. …

What is the Dating Culture in San Francisco Like? Is Dating in the San Francisco Bay Area Hard For Men? Women? How To Meet People Offline, In Real Life: SF Bay Area & Silicon Valley.

In the city where people love to complain about everything from electric scooters, to Ubers blocking bike lanes, long waits at Blue Bottle, incorrect DoorDash orders, fog, nudists, delayed MUNI lines, price of avocado toast, tech, hiking, steep hills, lack of late night cafe culture, nimby’s, tourists to high rents, it’s no wonder that dating is at or near the top of people’s lists of gripes.

Demanding work schedules, long commutes, men who suffer from Peter Pan syndrome, guys who don’t approach women offline and a shortage of women are some of the most commonly referenced reasons for such frustration…
