This Is The Difference Between Dating In New York And Dating In LA (Video)

Dating in NY or LA can be exciting. You move there feeling optimistic in a sea of fish, but a few months go by and you start to get sea sick.

Just when you think you caught a big fish, his slimy scales slip through your hands and nothing's left but a weird, gooey substance. And if you catch too many fish, you're considered a smelly fisherman. But it's like, how can we get better at catching fish unless we practice, right?

Whether you cannon ball or belly flop into the dating pool, you need to know if you're dating a mermaid or a shark. It's pretty easy to tell which one is which. One is too good to be true, and the other will rip your head off.

Most people move to these two cities to pursue their biggest dreams. They believe nothing can hold them back, including a relationship. And while this makes both cities extremely hard to date in, they both have their own ups and downs.

In New York, you may meet a cool-looking hipster who may be in a band or may be homeless. You don't know. Anything can happen.

In LA, life moves as slowly as relationships. You might get a text back next week; you may get one in a couple years. My preference? I believe it's better to date in NY. You get really cozy and intimate; because the restaurants are so small, you can't move!

No matter what side of the pond you're on, don't get discouraged. As my favorite fish would say, “Just keeping dating, just keep dating, just keep dating…”

"Generation whY" is back to advise you to avoid both cities and find a hobby instead.
