What kind of interests do you have and have you tried any apps or local (town/county) FB groups? I have not checked but there very well may be one for singles in the area; if not maybe start one? There is a need for one. Pretty much everyone is on FB.

We're practically neighbors.
I'm in Sicklerville in Gloucester Twsp.

The Pourhouse in Westmont is sorta cool. Neighboring Collingswood and Haddonfield are dry towns, so Westmont has all the bars in the area.

I would also take a look at Woodbury.

This made me laugh because North Jersey is probably the best place to find singles on the east coast. Hoboken, Jersey City and Morristown are oozing with single professionals. Down the Jersey Shore visit Belmar. If you can't walk down the street in any of these towns and find a woman it's you, not them.

Last I checked, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, and Washington are still on the east coast...People in those cities literally laugh out loud at the idea of being compared to the social scene in NJ. Just going by the numbers, the 1.5 million people in Manhattan or the 80,000 in Center City are going to make for much better social opportunities than the 55,000 in Hoboken or 16,000 in Morristown. I'd also guess there are higher percentages of single young professionals in those cities than in most NJ towns except maybe Hoboken and some shore towns during the summer.

I like their beer selection. Buck-a-shuck night is pretty good too. Wish they had an actual happy hour special though.

I will personally say if you're in your 20's and a straight white man, Hoboken has more available sane women to offer in a concentrated area than NYC. Hell, Hoboken had the Guiness world record for most bars in a concentrated square mile. Total numbers might not equate but the demographics in these town are young single professionals. All the big corporations move them to North Jersey/Nyc and they all move to these 3 towns.

Belmar in the summer tops the list, over half the houses are rented out by 20/30 somethings and everyone is looking to hook up

I never met a woman who was sane in any of those areas in North Jersey. I have one ex I still talk to, born and raised in North Bergen, but a lot older than me. I always had better luck meeting women in New York, South Jersey or Philly.

And you can forget about the Jersey Shore with all those territorial locals who hate "outsiders" not from their area. I have never been to a place where I have seen so many women walking around with fixed sullen facial expressions with blank eyes staring into nothing, acting standoffish and unfriendly, apart from the Jersey Shore. Not to mention the fact that half of them aren't even attractive. I've seen many overweight or even morbidly obese women around there trying to squeeze into tube tops. You need to cover up your rolls of fat, not flaunt them.

I'm in Pennsylvania now, have had my share of women from Philly and the northern suburbs (Bucks/Montco) but am happily settled now with a wonderful lady from the other side of the state. Neither the attitude nor the shallowness.

Locals are always trash and interbreed with other locals. Easy to spot as they are overweight or drugged out look, have a few stupid tattoos they picked off the catalog randomly one day at a tattoo shop on their calf or wrist. Need to ignore them and find the women who have a 'shore house' or are just visiting which hopefully are much more attractive.
