Love in New York: in the beginning it's all about long walks on the Brooklyn Heights promenade, dimly lit secret restaurants in the East Village, and all the glitter, magic, and passion that you otherwise only feel when you catch the G train at the exact moment it arrives. Whether it’s two months or six years though, all magic eventually fades. Your relationship is no exception (sorry). Here are the 9+ things every New York couple WILL fight about.
1. Real estate
This argument is two-fold, as real estate is a struggle we all feel in New York.
A. The Manhattan Radius
If you don’t know what this is, you should brush up on your NYC Dating Commandments. The Manhattan Radius states that anyone who lives in Manhattan, or the least amount of subway stops from Manhattan, wins. It’s just how it is. While your significant other may have put the effort in early on to take the C train (not even the A train) allllll the way to Clinton-Washington Ave to woo you, now that you’ve been successfully wooed you find yourself constantly making the trek into Manhattan. You might find yourself asking why. The answer is this secret loophole to the commandment: Being horny. Manhattan always takes a backseat to horny. Unless you live off the G train. You won’t even make it to relationship status.
