“No one moves to New York to find love,” says Erika Kaplan, a matchmaker with Three Day Rule.
Kaplan, whose company has branches in other major cities, like Los Angeles and Chicago, is digging into a stereotype embraced and touted like a badge by young New Yorkers: marriage in New York City is different than the rest of the country. We think of marriage as something that would get in the way of our careers, or our fun single lives (there’s always someone even MORE spectacular just a swipe away!) -- something that’s better off left to our friends in the 'burbs.
“Men and women both move here for careers over relationships, she continues. “They take education seriously. They are responsible, smart, confident, and they want to be sure of who they are and where they are going before they pick a mate.”
While that might not be true of small-town America, is that so different from other big cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, or Miami?
