Louis and always had a lot of success dating, whether with people I met online or otherwise.I had a couple long-term relationships and some more casual relationships, all with smart, interesting, good-looking men. Online, I am rarely contacted, and of the dates I have been on I haven’t once been asked out on a second date, which rarely happened to me before.

Yes, New Yorkers also pass on prospective mates because they're too nice, needy, live in a neighborhood that’s inconvenient, or are just plain weird.

Admittedly, there were not sparks flying on any of my first dates, but a couple of them were certainly guys I would have liked to get to know better and would have gladly gone had they asked me out again.
I have also tried initiating (many) emails myself and I have yet to have a guy respond to an email that I have initiated.
