Parks are great places to get to know the people living around you.
People from all sorts of walks of life and interests gather at the park.
When it comes to dating, things are never as easy as they should be.
From trying to figure out where to meet nice guys to navigating a budding romance, dating can often feel like too much to handle on your own.
I ended a five-year relationship when I moved to a new city four months ago.
I now live close to my brother and I’m enjoying hanging out with him and his friends, but I’m struggling to find someone suitable to date.
So ladies, my question for you is this: How have you made your experience with dating apps lead to real connections rather than just hook ups?
I was talking with some girlfriends one day and one told me that she gets men messaging her on a certain app for quick hookups. I use the exact same app and had never once had a man inquire about a sexual rendezvous.
But generally, it’s amazing how much you can know about a person from just a few photos, a one-sentence bio, and whether or not they opted to flex topless for a bathroom selfie. My first stop was the bar at the Gramercy Park Hotel, because it’s near my apartment, and because rich people go there.
Annoyingly, everyone there was either in a group of friends or already on a date.
So I put on my knee-high suede boots and my new contour stick and was feeling very powerful.
