Dating in the Big Apple sucks. That’s not some unknown truth; it’s a documented fact (Google “Dating in NYC” and you’ll see what I mean). As much as we all want to play nice, the sandbox is way too big to keep to one toy or one area.
That being said, when you’re ready to find a special someone who can keep you on your toes and also stay committed, turn your gaze east of Manhattan.
Queens is peppered with more diversity than anywhere else in the United States. This means that there is an amazing assortment of restaurant options, sights, smells, sounds, and people too.
It won’t take you long to realize that that Queens is chock-full of beautiful men, who are not only attractive, but also make for excellent SO’s. Here’s why:
1. They are laid back.
Once you find yourself a guy from Queens, you’ll notice that nothing ruffles their feathers. You can say almost anything and they’ll be ready to laugh it off. The only time they appear remotely Type A is in how they dress, because usually it’s to the nth degree. As a bonus, they probably smell good too.
2. They are family oriented.
You won’t talk to a guy from Queens for long before they mention a cousin, aunt, uncle, grandparent, or some other relative that likely lives down the street. Family is a huge part of Queens culture, which means that they will respect yours and welcome you into theirs. In a City that’s perpetually lonely, it’s nice to have an entire crew behind you.
3. They are supportive.
Once you’re in a relationship with a guy from Queens, you’re in for good. If you have a dream, expect to enjoy the connections that come with established New York families to get you there. If you need or want something, there is no doubt that one of his friends or cousins can help.
4. They are wild.
For all of their chill vibes, Queens boys love their parties. As a significant other to one, you will never be without plans, and you can expect the full gambit of dancing, bottle service, and hookah on the reg. This doesn’t just mean weekends either. In Queens, partying happens Monday through Sunday.
5. They are romantic.
Queens has all the right ingredients to engineer romantic men. They generally know how to move on the dance floor; how to cook; how to whisper sweet nothings in another language; and are willing to go to extremes to win your heart.
