2) Work Matters Traffic in San Diego can be deadly, so avoid the commute if possible and work near home.Besides, if you live somewhere hip, do you really want to get those after-work drinks at a chain restaurant?I thought it would be fun to compare the different dating styles of places I’ve lived: East Coast (Manhattan), West Coast (San Diego) and the Northwest (Montana).
I’ve even gone on dates with more than one girl in the same day.
With Internet dating, it’s important not to “pen pal” with someone for too long.
While not as expensive as the trendier (and smoggier) L.
A., it still costs a lot more to go out here than elsewhere in the country.
As a female, I can say that men on the local dating sites seem to focus on the getting to sex part.
(I’m not judging, by the way; I’ve been guilty of the same.)But if you want to go out, over and over with them? But there are plenty of people who do so, and there are those who enjoy the process.
Once we seem to have a decent connection, I try to meet them within a couple days. Until that happens, I’m quite happy meeting as many new people as I can and sharing new experiences.
I’m a fan of the relaxed, no-pressure first date at places like Ballast Point Brewery in Little Italy, The Safehouse (which also has video games! Flaky—that’s how I would describe the dating scene here.
3) Get Outside There’s a reason people live here, after all — and it’s not because they love earthquakes.
Most folks enjoy soaking up the weather and staying fit, making outdoor activities a great venture for singles looking to meet new people.
It’s cheap, and it’s not as noisy as a bar, so you can talk to the other person, and hopefully get to know them a bit, without having to yell.
