I can't guarantee you that we already have a lot in common -..at first when you get to know me i am an honest and reliable type of guy.
A woman who grew up in eastern Sydney may need to marry a man on a reasonable income if she is to live near where she grew up, and be able to take time off work to raise her kids," says James.
In this respect, he argues Sydney has become very much like New York and London: There are lots of accomplished, lonely people here."Many people's lives seem largely work and career-focused and there's very little time for anything else; dating, travel, arts, culture, sport, seeking some enlightenment, happiness," says James.
So much so, that many decent women just give up on dating altogether, making the dating pool even smaller for less confident guys."Still, James says many guys do struggle to attract women in Sydney for a variety of reasons.(iii) "Many desirable guys new to Sydney report seeing many attractive women by day, but have no luck ever finding where they go at night.
It seems the private party scene is big and if you can't break into it, it can be tough meeting great girls in bars.
It seems to be an extremely masculine place, even in the really wealthy places."Because of the weather, it's really a minimal clothing city so men and women must stay in shape. However, thanks to the mining boom you'll also encounter "materialism, status-consciousness on a grand scale"."A little bit of good news: guys who are just a bit more enlightened, better dressed and more well read than average can find a really powerful niche in Perth.
This would be among the really beautiful women, who are not willing to date just another beer swilling, surfing, footy player," says James."For the many Perth guys who really do struggle, consider getting some style advice and maybe taking your annual holiday in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, where there are large numbers of attractive, educated women just waiting for masculine, single guys," he says.
Having returned once again to the dating trenches, I've been surprised by just how many attractive women there are in Sydney and how few of them want to have sex with me.
This is largely my fault, seeing as I only go out once a fortnight to my local RSL, then proceed to drink the bar dry of Jameson; so I'm not always the most attractive prospect.
James says these are his impressions of Brisbane, as "I've spent the least amount of time here of any of the cities".4.
