Please excuse the odd title (haha) but I'm basically torn between two areas to live, Lindbergh (the new Amli) and one of the two apartments in downtown Decatur Square. My two reasons to move are to be closer to work which is Emory off Clifton Road and also to meet more professional men. I'm also concerned with safety since I'll be by myself. I've had bad luck with the dating scene and want to maximize my chances of meeting someone. I want to meet men who are of the same caliber as me (if you saw the people I get on Match.com, you'd know what I mean!). Which should I choose (or any other suggestions)?

Your requirements for the man is too broad; I would advise you to be more specific.

Star sweet, in my first reply I didn't answer your question. Lindbergh isn't really an area where you'll meet a ton of people. It's very car heavy and not a community type place. Decatur is a lot more community focused and will likely have more what you're looking for partner wise, however downtown Decatur is more of an established area and you'll probably meet tons of really great, educated, successful men...who are married and have children lol. I'd say your best bet to meet men is not in any neighborhood where you live but by going out to social events in the city, particularly around midtown, Virginia highland, etc.

You probably got a attitude though and fat lol

Actually I think it is the opposite. With all the special and outstanding single women out here these days, any man who says he can't find a woman either don't really want one, can't pick(kid in a candy store) or doesn't have themselves together. How many times have you looked at a males facebook page in which he "can't fine a nice woman" but yet 90% of his friends that he is saying this to are attractive women. Check yourself!!

Can't pick? Kid in a candy store? We're talking about women, not Thanksgiving side dishes. Maybe the issue some women have is that they only seem to encounter men with this sort of mentality and they're not interested in the blatant disrespect.

Single men and women say the same thing. Is more than "finding someone" because finding anyone is easy but finding the right person can be challenging. Finding the right one these days is more detailed....


Is she from Atlanta? Does she want to move back home because Im not leaving Atlanta

Does she smoke or use drugs ? I dont so id rather that she doesnt either

Kids? How many does she have? Does she want any?

Can she cook? Does she like cooking?

How much debt is she in?

Are most of her ex's friends with her on FB?

What's her religious background? I believe in God so she cant be an atheist

Does she love spending or saving money?

How much is her student loan debt and does she expect for me to help her pay for it?

Etc etc etc

There is so much more than just finding someone. If they are just looking for sex then thats different but finding the one is hard. Thing is men are suppose to accept anything because she is a female but its ok for women to have standards. She can have just got out of jail, smoking dope and people will be like "awww she is ok. Work with her"

Well, I don't know about you but I meet outstanding women everyday and wish I knew outstanding men I can introduce them too since I have already picked my outstanding woman. Again a man that has themselves together with the right priorities will meet special women everyday all day and their only problem is that they can have only one.

Its way more detailed than that. Just because a man has his stuff together and has a job doesn't mean he will have women lined up to date them. Im not talking about Drake or professional sports players,etc. Generally speaking. Im talking about the average dude.

If that was the case it would be 0 men on dating sites in Atlanta. Most women are more interested in how much money he makes, how tall he is, how he dresses, if her girls approve him, if he likes animals if she is an animal lover, if he will allow her to stop working, is he fat, is she attracted to him, does she make more $$$ than him,etc.

Its not that black and white that a man with a job and good priorities is guaranteed a wonderful wife. If he is a midget, if he is fat, if he is missing teeth, if he has no "swag" if he is an atheist and she believes in God, if she is an animal lover and he hates animals, if she wants kids and he doesnt, etc it doesn't matter if he has is priorities together and a job

But this is starting to sound like a lifetime movie so im out.
