That is, of course, until they actually go to New York to try it.
Sure there’s a lot of stuff to do — an endless amount of activities, museums, places to walk, places to eat, etc. But when it comes to actually trying to find a partner? It can be bloody difficult. Just ask former Miss USA bombshell Nana Meriwether.
“Here’s the thing about dating in New York: It doesn’t exist,” Meriwether said. “There’s so much going on in the city, there are so many distractions, that people just forget to go on a second date.”
Even for a 6 foot tall, beautiful and talented lady, Meriwether says she still gets lonely from time to time. And as a result? She’s turned her head to focus on some other ways to meet men… online!
Yes, you can find the former Miss USA star on Tinder, a somewhat recent social networking and online dating application on iPhones and Androids. Her profile shows a competition photo of herself in a bikini. Oo la la.
Guys on the app have asked her if her profile is even real, to which she replies, “I’m like, ‘Yeah, of course.’ Even pageant-title-holders get lonely.” Guys, you have a chance!
The South African beauty initially joined the online dating scene due to social pressures; “Mostly, I joined because a friend told me to, but I think it could be a great way to meet people, especially in New York City. I think when you’re single, you should try all avenues. And now there are so many new apps for dating — this one is just really fun.”
Tinder, many critics say, is just a glorified sex app. Many pundits claim that it’s just the heterosexual version of an app called “Grindr”, a similar mobile phone application. However, many users have claimed Tinder is an excellent way to find dates nearby.
Has it worked for Miss USA? Not yet… but hopefully she’ll keep us updated. Obviously the exposure she’s gained so far from the media won’t leave her too lonely…
