Ah, dating in the South. The chivalrous gentlemen and the sweet Southern belles mixing & mingling in this big city/small town of Nashville makes for an interesting dating scene. And with the city growing by the day, transplanting thousands of new singles to town, they may start to notice these 10 reasons why dating here is different than anywhere else in the country...
Big city, small town
The dating pool can start to feel more like a wading pool remarkably quickly. Everyone knows everyone and they’ve all dated each other or know someone who has. There are good and bad things to this. On one hand, you could easily know everything you need to about your date before you meet them. On the other, you could easily know everything you need to about your date before you meet them.
You can’t escape a bad date
In bigger cities, it’s common to just bail if the date is going badly or to bluntly castigate the other person when they talk about their ex all night. Or CrossFit. It won’t matter, because you'll never see them again. In Nashville, unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to never see that person again. You may even have to work with them at some point or be joint godparents to the child of a mutual friend. Maybe that’s why we’re so polite?
