ATLANTA from an outside perspective

As I was hanging out on the dreaded in the Misadventures in Atlanta “Blog” today … someone pointed out that Atlanta was ranked #4 on the list for Best Cities for Singles …. woo hoo!!!

According to the article written by some dude named Jonathan Schwartz … says … The area “inside the 285 beltway” is made up of three major neighborhoods: Buckhead, Midtown and Virginia Highlands.
Buckhead has gradually shaped itself to cater to the more affluent, trendy crowd, with many young professionals patronizing bars such as the recently opened East Andrews.
You’ll find hip singles in the many coffee houses and cafes of mid-town.
For those seeking the laid back, collegiate feel, Virginia Highlands is packed with local bars and outdoor pubs…”

This begs the question is Atlanta the Best Place for Singles or as one of the AJC bloggers stated … The Best Place to Remain Single?

As an African American woman … in this oh so “Chocolate” city … I’ve had an easier time catching colds and foul balls than I have men ….HA! How’s the dating pool in your Atlanta ?

One more thing… Atlanta is not DC .. we don’t have a friggin’ beltway … we keep it simple in these parts … you’re either In(side) or Out(side) … the Perimeter that is …

    Well, we will have a “Belt Line” someday if that initiative keeps going forward.

    I met a very nice (African-American) doctoral student at Georgia State a couple months ago. Don’t know if he was single, though.

    Up here in Alpharetta we have lots of high-school chicks and soccer moms with boob jobs if anyone is interested!

    I think Atlanta is a single city because of how quickly singles are moving in and out of the city.

    I met my husband here and if it weren’t for the transient quality of Atlanta we probably would have never met because we wouldn’t have been here at all.
