The answer is simple. no no and no. picking up women in new york city is a waste of time. If you a single male and live in New York City, please do the math. Calculate how much you spend on a monthly basis to pick up or date women. Sum up all your expenses dedicated to dating (Phone calls to women, dates, alcohol in pickup places, entrance fees, gas, hotel room, subway, restaurants, paid online dating…). You may be surprised to discover you spend lots of money for few benefits. I really advise to do a pause and consider learning foreign languages (Spanish and Russian). If you can afford a place in new york city, you can also afford a flight ticket to Argentina.
I calculated that a Londoner, a new yorker or a Parisian man has 1 pickup opportunity every 2 or 3 months. On the other hand, if the same person would go to latin america, eastern europe, russia or asia, he would have more opportunities in a shorter time. Let’s stop saying that men are always guilty not to be pushy enough, not to be funny enough, not to be proactive enough, not to be masculine enough. Whoever you are, the battle is lost before it begins if you live in New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Shanghai…
The urban infrastructure, distances, the local culture, the density of people, the excess of male individuals versus women and more importantly the ego of female new Yorkers make dating almost impossible in NYC and big cities.
For sure, There is a significant number of female New Yorkers who have very high expectations towards men. They want you to be rich, funny, handsome, adventurous, creative, artists… However, you aren’t tied to female New Yorkers and you should take the opportunity to live close to an International airport, JFK.
