Question: Hello Madam Koverage. I am a 27 year old woman residing in Atlanta, GA. I have a great job making close to six figures, I work out daily, come from a good family, so I believe I am a good catch. It is sooo hard finding a good man here in Atlanta. The dating scene as I see it is a joke. Half of the men are either gay or broke, and the other half know that they can have as many women as they want because the ratio to men and women is way off. I love living in Atlanta, but I am not getting any younger. I am not desperate for love, but I am ready to be with someone I could potentially spend the rest of my life with. Where are some places that I can meet nice, handsome, straight, & established men? Thanks
Answer: Hmm very interesting case, but have you truly evaluated yourself and past relationships to see why you are truly single? I had the opportunity to share your question with several men and women, and got some very interesting feedback. Some were turned off by the fact that you told us how much you make. Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with doing well for yourself and bringing in a great salary, but you have to be careful how you approach guys with that. Some people may see it as a turn off if that’s the first thing you say to introduce yourself. Humility speaks larger than anything else you will bring to the table. Now as someone who currently lives in Atlanta and is Single, I can agree with you that the ratio to women and men is off, but that shouldn’t discourage you. No matter what, DO NOT SETTLE! Don’t let the pressures of getting married and being almost 30 get to you. You deserve the best and true love, so truly think what are you looking for in a mate, and what would you be willing to compromise on (because relationships are all about compromise). Just keep working on you, and Mr. Right will appear when you least expect it.
I came up with a list of places that you could potentially run into Mr. Right, but of course it could happen ANYWHERE! So I hope this helps! Good luck, be patient, & be humble!
