Hang on a minute, wasn't online dating designed to reduce the complexities of finding a partner in the first place?
Technology and competition for this lucrative market has made a mockery of it.
I’m an optimist, and a Miami lover, so I’d like to end with something that should give you some hope.
A Brickell resident said he “had to go on a diet to afford dating and paying rent.” But women feel the pressure, too.
They say some men equate a girl accepting a drink or going out on a date with consent for sex.
One woman who was widowed at 27 and is back at the dating game three years later was the most positive person I encountered. I love meeting people and I’ve had great experiences,” she said to me. ” Interestingly, everyone seems to discriminate against Miami locals who have never moved away — particularly other locals!
I heard from women that local Miami men who never moved away are “kind of ghetto bros” that “haven’t grown up,” while men thought Miami women who stayed put weren’t as worldly — “they eat sushi with mayonnaise” one man told me.
So I decided to find out what it’s really like for a single young professional looking to find someone in Miami – and what they’re finding when they do. I read everything I could about relationships, from serious books to Internet think pieces to My findings are by no means the result of a scientifically sound study, but I hope it starts a discussion on what dating here is like for the youngish, college-educated professional set, and not — bless their hearts — the club promoters and Instagram models of this town. The biggest complaint out there is about the size of our dating pool.
