I do not get it. I was born here but raised upstate, I am not bad looking, I am 6 foot tall, I have a calm/relaxed/shy demeanor. I am not one to follow trends but I do dress well. My entire family is from the city and is of Irish-Italian descent.

I have noticed where I used to live I had a much easier time. Is it just me or is NY a tough place to meet women?

But seriously, women in a lot of major cities put up a bigger wall than in many other parts of the country. They are constantly getting hollered at and there are a ton of a-holes who want nothing other than to toss them out after one night, never to hear from them again. And they know this.

Well you shoulda quoted my first post with that response, but no, I'm not necessarily saying that at all. There are surely plenty of gold diggers though.

Shy? Could that be it?

I Googled and discovered this little tidbit: "NYC happens to be THE PLACE TO BE with an excess of females to the tune of 210,820 more single women than men!" from this site.

I have no idea who the guy is, but if his facts are correct, there are at least 200,000 women out there that were wishing they had a date. If you are not finding someone to ask out, leave the men's locker room. They are out there.

Women in NY are too closed into themselves.

How do you expect to meet women if you're that way? It is an extreme rarity to have women come up to you (it does happen, though), so get out there, take charge and project confidence!
