New Yorkers are fine at sitting and eating by themselves or going to movies on their own. The first person (of many) to tell me this is Amy, a friend of a friend.
Amy’s a bit like me in that she is actively looking to meet someone.
It’s also available in the UK although, in my experience, it’s used more by married mates or for business than by singles.
Meanwhile, Tinder Thursdays at whisky bar Rochelle’s (rochellesnyc.com) is where you’ll get a free shot if you turn up with your Tinder match.
She’s got some amazing rules and the one that sticks with me is to take your chance – or risk losing it.
She’s very matter-of-fact, knows what she wants and isn’t prepared to compromise.She’s using a matchmaker and has two dates that weekend. Your boss decides you’re the person who should speak at that event/greet the overseas visitors/go on the pull in New York. Sara is training in yoga but does find plenty of time for dates too. Yep, I’ve just been to the Big Apple – setting of new film How To Be Single, starring Rebel Wilson and Dakota Johnson – for a whirlwind three days to find out how they date across the pond. First up on my crash course in the singles scene across the pond I meet Sara, 35, a paralegal I’ve been put in touch with through a friend in publishing.For arty types, pop to the Whitney or Museum of Modern Art.
I went and queued up at the Whitney (whitney.org) on a freezing Friday evening and found that, while some singles were mooching around, many were there on first dates. New Yorkers use Meet Up, a social networking app that’s more about finding something to do that interests you than going to an event aimed purely at singles.
