I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Australian matchmaker and relationship expert, Samantha Jayne, to discuss single life in New York City. The following is a snippet from our extended interview.
What advice would you give to singles trying to find love in a big city?
Finding love in the big city!
The city is a breeding ground for being busy so it’s easy for your love life to take a backseat. There is some much your plate if you allow it, emails, Facebook, texting, calling, work, and squeezing in time for friends and family not to mention getting in an express work out. It’s no wonder there are so many singles out there.
If you truly want to find love in the city you it is essential you make the time and be proactive!
Look at your schedule, and make time for YOU every week! If you happen to have a date and it conflicts with a gym session, skip the gym session, you will survive, you just never know what could come out of that date.
Be playful and receptive to others, you just never know where you might meet your next love interest, it could be on the ferry, the train, or even taking a walk through Central park. A really great way to connect with the opposite sex is mixed team sports and networking events.
Other fantastic places include, online dating, speed dating events and for those who want that extra TLC and results private matchmaking. Most importantly when you’re out there looking for love have fun! Positive people are super attractive and accomplish so much more!
