I have always been picky in life. From the food that I eat (no condiments, please!) to where I sit at a movie theater (the closer to the aisle seat the better – blame my small case of claustrophobia) I just have particular taste.
So, it comes as no surprise that I am also picky in romance. There are certain traits that I find attractive (facial hair and long noses, oh my!) and others not so much.
My pickiness may stem from my New York roots. A recent study by AYI.com, a Facebook dating app, showed that women from Brooklyn are the pickiest when it comes to responding to messages from men.
I’m from Manhattan but my sister lived in Brooklyn for a while. Maybe it rubbed off on me?
Oddly enough, the study also found that women from the birth place of Biggie were more receptive to messages from younger men.
It’s all good baby, baby!
And then there’s the quality in messaging. Brooklynites weren’t having the “Hey,” or “What’s up?” emails. Instead, they reponded favorably to messages that said, “Where are you from originally?” and the like.
So, if you don’t have much to say but “hey boo” or “wink” then forgetaboutit! ‘Cause women from Brooklyn will turn the other cheek. Or hit you over the head with a bat. Bada bing!
