Hello, I am a 22 year old woman graduating from college and moving to St Louis this June. I was wondering if someone could explain the dating/socialization scene to me? I will be working in the Midtown neighborhood and I don't know where I'll live, but after some research I am thinking of finding a Richmond heights apartment with two other people. Is this reasonable? If this is where I end up working/living, how do people in my areas meet each other? I am Christian and will be looking for a church once I get there, so I know I'll have that community, but I'd love any extra information you could give to help. I'm wondering both how to meet people romantically with similar interests (generally academic/intellectual) and how to meet people to live with. Also, should I consider living somewhere else and what does public transport look like in St Louis?

Church is one of the top places to establish yourself in when relocating to a new city. Another quick way to meet people is through volunteering. There are many options. Some of your adjustment depends on you and how outgoing you are. I have never had any luck with dating in St Louis but I am in a totally different demographic. I do know St Louis has a lot of married early types. That could be a positive or negative depending on you.

Public transit should be a breeze from Richmond Heights to Midtown. Trains usually run every 20 minutes heading east. More frequently during rush hour. Pretty much of a safe, and civilized feel unlike other sections of the system.

I live in Southwest FL now and dating is terrible here. First, the median age is over 50 in this region! So not alot of young single people under 40. Online dating within 60 miles of me is mostly garbage.


But I can look at the same sites and such in St. Louis area and put in my zipcode and many many times more women. Less single moms, more never married, more educated, in better physical shape and overall more attractive looking. Down here in FL many more unattractive women, single moms, ugly women.
