A friend of mine shared a story about a decent guy who had terrible dating luck in Austin (I think). He moved to NYC and despite it being a bigger city, his dating life was still pretty bad. He then moved to Memphis and cleaned up with the ladies!
I believe that different cities/parts of the country aren’t suited for everybody.
I don’t think you have plans to move but maybe that would create new opportunities for you, Ed. (I plan to do that at some point. I’m not sure if I’ll have more success but it would be difficult for it to be worse.)
In any case, thanks for reading and responding! Hang in there!
