Boston also ranked first in another category with more than a quarter of women reporting that they were unhappy with their dating lives in Boston.With statistics like these, it makes sense that women would be anxious about dating.
One out of every eight men in Boston expects to have sex on the first date, according to the survey, more than any of the other 10 cities on the list.
Boston is considered the best American city for the heterosexual, single male primarily because of the unbalanced male to female ratio.
One MIT researcher even developed an algorithm showing that if each single male in Boston were to eliminate all undesirable matches, he is still left with about 2,500 female options.
Remember the phrase, “The grass is always greener on the other side?
” I would argue that it psychologically beneficial for Boston men to feel like they have a plethora of choices when dating.
Instead of preserving their energy to engage one lovely woman, pursue emotional intimacy, and negotiate the necessary conflicts associated with developing a relationship, Boston men are more likely to be distracted by hopes of an escape route of 2,500 women who they imagine might be emotionally easier or a more perfect match.
