In New York, there are more post-dating stories than there are neighborhoods. The official estimate is about eight million, and that’s not counting the outer boroughs. Everyone’s got one. For all the Carrie Bradshaws out there, there is always a Samantha, and for all the illusive Mr. Big types, a girl can always count on finding a Steve or a Harry or a Smith Jerrod on a good day. Which brings me to my point: for all the talk of coupling in our modern stratosphere, WTF?! is up with all the single beautiful people here? Is it just that we have too many options?
A very beautiful (and very single) friend has a fondness for saying, “I’ve got too much to give it up on a trip to the Supermarket.” WTF?! Without delving into the practical implications of this statement, New Yorkers find it hard to settle for (or rather with) someone when this city has a crazy amount of “potentials” waiting to buy you a drink at the bar. But, don’t take my word for it; I have data!
