Since almost nobody in Atlanta is actually from Atlanta, we spend most of our time telling out-of-towners why they can't go about finding attractive, eligible people to mate with the same way they did back home, because dating in the ATL isn't like anywhere else, and is downright mysterious for the uninitiated. In fact, “uninitiated” is just what your sex life will be if you don’t learn the unique ins-and-outs (no pun there at all) of dating in the A. Here’s what you’ve gotta know:
1. Men can be scrubs because there are a billion women...
You don’t need statistical studies to know the ratio of women to men is out of freaking control, which many Atlanta women will tell you is exactly how dudes here behave. If you’re a single straight guy and you don’t live here, you’re an idiot.
2. ... but in spite of the numbers, women still run the game
Because they’ve learned to ignore idiots. This means that unlike men, women in Atlanta workout, have great jobs, multiple degrees, high-performing investment portfolios, rental properties, on-call hairdressers, and personal chefs. Yes, that means all the single ladies; word to Beyoncé. And you, homeboy, shoulda/woulda/coulda put a ring on it, but instead you overplayed your poker hand, as well as other poker parts, and now you’re played out.
