Sydney dating scene
If you’d like to keep it casual, suggest getting a coffee somewhere you both probably know.Otherwise, group dates and movies are an easy way to get to know someone without too much pressure.
Melbourne Having run many events in Melbourne and dated lots of girls there, James says it's roughly even-Steven for both sexes."Melbourne obviously lacks the weather and beaches that other state capitals have, and people tend to be a little less physically active and/or looks orientated," he says."Many of the men and women tend to be more arts, culture and book-minded than the other capitals.He's thus rather uniquely positioned to compare the pros and cons of each (except Darwin and Hobart, sorry)."Generally, Australian men are a little less socially and romantically savvy, compared to Europeans and even Americans," says James."Dating skills and social intelligence are certainly not subjects taught at school, which is a bit unfortunate. He theorises that any male with a "bit of go in him" leaves Adelaide by age 21, leaving many extremely hot girls to fight it out for whoever's left (that'd be the dude with the mullet)."There also seems to be a decent population of attractive, international students in the city because of Adelaide Uni," he says."The main negative for guys is that local, more 'enlightened' men, report struggling to find an interesting conversation with attractive women."It may be a little politically incorrect but there are hot Aussie bogan chicks galore with nowhere near enough attractive men to go around."Hello, Jetstar? Sydney "For guys who know what they are doing and who tick most of the boxes, Sydney is very easy.If you weren't blessed with socially confident parents or, friends who did really well with women when you were at school, it can be a very difficult thing to learn as an adult."In this country we tend to live in large houses, in sprawling car-dominated cities, everyone held at a distance; it's not a tight-knit living arrangement like many European cities."We've also inherited some of the 'sexual repression' of the English, as well as their preference for dealing with all romantic and sexual matters after quite a few drinks. Well, if you're a single man in Perth, James feels sorry for you. Men have a huge number attractive, intelligent women (who will only date a certain kind of guy) and a large number of tourists to choose from," says James.As a general rule, whoever suggested the outing should at least, offer to pay first.But it’s becoming more common to split payments on dates – especially when you’re both students – so don’t be alarmed if your date wants to chip in as well. There are more Australians with Facebook accounts than without.
