Finding an apartment, and dating in New York City are very much equivalent to each other in reference to how HARD it is to find, maintain, and most importantly keep. In the midst of the love campaign we all call Valentines Day, many will find out which of their friends, family, acquaintances and possible crushes are actually in a relationship.

In the meantime, the singles will either enjoy the American holiday with their friends, or spend it alone scrolling on social media critiquing the lives of others OR truly enjoying their own company. Which one will you be?

Dating in New York City let alone the tri-state area of NY, NJ, CT can be sporadic depending on how willing you are to find companionship… Meeting someone at a nightclub, coffee shop, or on the street is not too far fetched from NYC love.
