Dating in New York City, or in any highly populated city, is harder and more time-consuming than dating in a small town because there are more potential mates to choose from.
That's according to this Psychology Today article, "Why Dating is Difficult in New York (or London)," by Satoshi Kanazawa: Turns out we should reject the first 37% of the potential mates we meet (no matter how good or bad they are), then pick the first candidate who is better than any of the other earlier candidates.

- Freecams profile
- twitterfeed not updating twitter
If you follow this strategy, there is a 37% chance you will choose the right mate -- which may not sound all that high, but as Kanazawa writes, "there are no other strategies that you can consistently follow which will produce a higher average probability of choosing the best of all candidates." Geez.
No wonder dating in New York was always so exhausting! Makes you wonder how Gilbert & Mosteller would even define the number of potential mates we can come across today on the Internet.
No one ever said that finding the perfect mate was easy, but the Internet has put almost every single person in your locality at your fingertips.
