To meet a great guy in your city "go out somewhere you like," suggests Dr. Helen Fisher of Rutgers University. "You can bond over similar interests." But steer clear of the bar scene. "Generally speaking, bars are not your best bet," reveals Andrea Syrtash, relationship exert and author of He's Just Not Your Type (And That's A Good Thing). "Consider meeting through your friends who are in relationships. The more friends a single guy has that are coupled off, the more he may want to do the same!"
According to Dr. Fisher, men in the Northeast are "high estrogen men," meaning they're highly expressive and sensitive. Prime for mature relationships, this kind of man is drawn to the Eastern coast because of the liberal mindset, number of quality universities, and highly cultural experiences. Drop by a local bookstore or spend this Sunday at a museum to meet one of these diamonds.
D.C. plays host to high testosterone men which means "they make rapid decisions," says Dr. Fisher. If you're near our nation's capital, try schmoozing with a sexy Senator like Illinois' Aaron Schock. These guys know what they want and make decisions fast, so if he thinks you're the one a proposal won't be far off.
West Coast men are "explorers, risk takers, and spontaneous," explains Dr. Fisher. You might not know what he's thinking, but that brand of spontaneity translates into grand romantic surprises and plenty of active dates. And who knows, a guy this unpredictable could sweep you off your feet and try to put a ring on it in no time!
We've all heard that Southern boys are all gentlemen, but that may be a product of their incredible patience. "Men from the South and Midwest are very cautious," says Dr. Fisher. "He's going to date you for a while and introduce you to friends and family before it gets serious." Another reason not to hold your breath for an old fashioned cowboy? "The divorce rate is highest in that part of the country, along the bible belt."
