I'm 23 years old, college educated, have a great career in HR. I've been single for 3 years. I go out every weekend, done the bar and club scene, tried online dating, been out on countless set ups. Where are all the nice guys and how do I meet them? I work in NYC you would think in a city this big there would be tons of places, but here I am still single. I am even attending classes at night...still nothing. I'm becoming frustrated and don't think there are any decent men left out there. Does anyone have any suggestions or can sympathize with me?

i know this might sound a bit condescending, but i still think its worth a thought or two:

you'll meet more nice guys once you figure out how to spot the not so nice ones...

I live and work in Manhattan. My suggestions are: swing dancing, a theater group like the Blue Hill Troupe (check out their website - front or back stage and great people!), volunteer work with children or adults. Feel free to email me for more info on the theater group or volunteer work at deenahesq@aol.com. I have lived in NYC for 37 years and 23 days, LOL.

I'm almost 28 and in the same situation. You are still young! Don't rush it, but actually I had a very similar conversation at work. How about going to Borders books or a big book store where you can sit down and read? Or what about a bookstore that has a coffee/cafe area in the store? Someone suggested going to the library. I know no one is supposed to talk in a library, but you may see a cute guy in the aisle or find you have something in common like a favorite author, or whatever. I don't know. I've been meeting guys with no ambition to work so those are the suggestions I got from my co-workers. Good luck.

I hear ya! I live in a pretty big place too........ just outside Detroit in Warren MI. You'd think I'd be able to find someone here, WRONG! All I've come across is players! I'm 28, have a great job, my own home and like to think I have my stuff together. Just missing one thing, a man! Any suggestions for me would be great! I moved about an hour from my hometown and all people I know here are married with kids so they NEVER go out. I've just about given up and decided my destiny is to be single! PLEASE HELP!!! LOL
