Listen, I'm not saying this as a Carrie Bradshaw wannabe (although God knows I am such a Carrie), but, having grown up in this city and having spent the past 20 or so years dating in it (yes, I started chasing boys when I was roughly 7), I can confirm that all the single men in New York are the worst. This is not the place for finding love and settling down. It hardly even matters which dating pool you find yourself in - from the sociopaths of Wall Street to the starving artists of Bushwick, practically every dude you'll date will suck. So, why should you even bother? Well, for these 10 reasons only.
