Recently, we reached out to our 19,000 Agenda newsletter subscribers and asked them: How would you grade the dating scene in Charlotte? The hook-up scene on the other hand is an A .” “Charlotte is weird for dating.
It seems like it’s all young guys that grew up in Charlotte and just came back to live off their parent’s money. ” “Women are either looking to immediately get married or have a one night stand – nothing in between.
In dating apps it is a very small pool of people.” “Everybody just wants to hookup.
If I’m not going on dates regularly, its by (my) choice.” “I don’t date because that would piss off my wife.” “Guy to girl ratio is much better than in college, where it was 70% girls.” “All the guys are literally cookie cutter: either young, cocky bankers or redneck country boys. Oh…married or gay….that’s right….” Being Jewish, the Jewish dating scene for Males ( I am) is tough, especially looking for a nice Jewish girl (NJG) “Everyone is a transplant so the urge to meet new friends and try new things is there sort of like a college town.
I’ve found that it’s like a big small city where everyone is looking to date but no one is looking to commit.” “CLT is a city of young professionals.
I ultimately had to turn to e Harmony.” “Online dating = B .
Real World Dating = D .” “Better for men than for women.” “Creativity, guys…not Netflix and chill.” “LAME; as a 31 year old single woman, every man I encounter is living the “cushy single boy lifestyle,” which I have determined is a result of: men being paid way too much in their current jobs, being way too comfortable being single (even though they say “they want a relationship”), and then when said relationship happens realizing it’s cramping their “cushy single boy lifestyle.” Needless to say – so grim on that front.” “Every man seems to be married, and if he isn’t married, he is not looking to date.” “Straight female here – there’s a severe shortage of really interesting, multi-faceted, and insightful men in this town.
I’m fairly social, but nobody seems to approach anyone anymore.
Too many apps.” “There aren’t a lot of options to meet black professionals that also want a black professional.” “As a gay male, difficult to find men with ambition, education, intellect.” “I was 29 when I moved to Charlotte 10 years ago and I moved from SF.
Charlotte has become very superficial and everybody is waiting for something better to come along than focusing on what they have in front of them. I think the dating scene is exceptional despite what all my friends would tell you. Bonus: Men are typically not photogenic so you’re usually in for a pleasant surprise when you meet them.
