At first, this statement was just an opinion I formulated based off of the experiences I have had with guys in this city thus far. While I can't say the task of finding a good man is insurmountable, I can tell you from experience, it isn't easy. Because a large majority of the men in New York aren't looking for anything serious.But then I thought to myself, maybe I'm just picking or attracting the wrong guys.Then again, my friends have had similar experiences, so it can't JUST be me.The fashion industry opens its crystal, glass doors to the prettiest Barbie doll women, carrying Birkins and wearing Burberry.

Sitting on a gum-trotted wooden bench, wearing jeans and gulping down a Heineken? Fashion girls prefer the classier options of sipping cosmos at Cielo, accepting bubbling champagne from a waiter in a penguin suit at an art opening, or enjoying a glass of red wine at a five-star restaurant booked two months in advance. Pants too tight for any straight man to sport and voices as high as the sky, gay men conquer every whiff of testosterone, from fashion closets to magazine conference rooms.
