Blame it on...
From your standpoint, tell us which Southern cities or metro areas you consider to be good and bad for singles.
I disagree. Austin has plenty of high-end, sophisticated restaurants. There is theatre, opera, ballet, or symphony. Lots of great urban green space to have a picnic, or just enjoy the scenery. Also, Austin has many upscale lounges, nightclubs, etc.I'm not bashing Austin. Everyone knows that the live music scene is the best in the country. I don't credit Austin as having a very cosmopolitan singles scene though--that's Houston as far as my experiences in Texas go. And nobody bashes Cashville nearly enough as far as I am concerned, as an institutionalized contributor here, Cashville is one guy I'm sick of and he only has like a hundred posts. I didn't even see where Cashville dissed OKC other than personally attacking me as usual..
I've climbed bluffs along the Colorado River, eaten at some really nice restaurants on 6th and on Lake Travis (which I heard burnt down), and I even remember the days before Hard Rock Cafe closed its doors on 6th Street. I recognize all of these things that Austin has. But okay.I disagree. Austin has plenty of high-end, sophisticated restaurants. There is theatre, opera, ballet, or symphony.

I don't know if you've ever lived in Austin, or if you have just visited, but Austin has a lot more to offer than you seem to realize.
With that being said though, having a great live music scene, and tons of fun, unpretentious nightlife makes a pretty great singles scene on it's own.
I'm not seventeen. And what's wrong with being seventeen? We were all seventeen once.. and why can't somebody just not love everything about your little corner of joy? I wasn't even bashing Austin, because I know that there are a ton of things Austin is great for. Cosmopolitan dating scene it is NOT. If I was bashing Austin by saying that then I was also bashing my hometown of OKC by saying that, which lol, trust me I would never do.Okay....you are seventeen years old and apparently have visited Austin a few times, and you are going to be an expert on Austin's single's scene. Whatever, I'm not going to waste my time debating this with you.
Next time you visit, take off your crimson colored glasses, and maybe you'll see the great city of Austin in a new light. Hook 'em!:cheers:
Why is Nashville good while Memphis and Knoxville are bad?Its official, srg has either completely lost it or needs to get out of Oklahoma more. OKC is not even close to Austin when it comes to best places for singles.
Austin does have a huge college population both undergrad and grad students. Austins downtown nightlife is great. Has great diversity for not only college kids, but for slightly older crew as well. The local music scene is amazing, its attracting young college graduates in droves. Compare that to OKC which has some canal it ripped off from San Antonio.
Chattanooga-dont know, but probably bad
NKY-steals Cincys singles, so bad
Well, according to Best Places.net, Atlanta is near the bottom for dating. I don't agree with this because the ATL has plenty of chocolate beauties!From Forbes latest list:
9.) Dallas/Ft. Worth
17.) New Orleans
Nashville has more young professionals than Memphis, and people tend to get married later there. Knoxville has a college scene, but after college everyone either leaves or gets married. Everyone over the age of 23 is married in Chattanooga.Why is Nashville good while Memphis and Knoxville are bad?
Basically what TennReb said. Nashville is similar to Austin. Knoxville is like most big college towns, after you hit 25 or so things really start to go downhill there. Memphis is a coin flip, I had to pick one so I picked bad. There is a certain crowd down there that can ruin a lot of good things in the city.Why is Nashville good while Memphis and Knoxville are bad?
