Boston singles dating website

Sure, there are awkward people everywhere, but in Boston, it seems like the lion’s share of the dating pool. Most Bostonian 20-somethings (and a fair number of 30-somethings) live with other people their age, so you better have that Spotify playlist on lock, and the dishes out of the sink by morning.

Most people don't want to date someone who lives too far away, and in Boston, “too far away” usually means the other side of the Charles. They’re more likely to post selfies of themselves in graphic T’s and enormous, name-brand headphones.

Only a small pool of men bothers with belts and button-downs around here.

Women wear flats on coffee dates and almost everywhere else (because cobblestone streets are hell on stilettos).

Often, the problem is with the guy, but there are also dating mistakes and habits that you can avoid making as well.

For one, don't get down on yourself if a date didn't turn into anything more. In today's day and age, that means avoiding frequent and aggressive texting.

Likewise, you’ll know your date really digs you when they offer to help shovel out your car and find a cardboard box to put in its place.

There are a ton of gay and gay-friendly joints around town, but Machine is the black hole of the LGBTQ scene; it’ll suck you in, and before you know it, you’ll be trying to pole dance with the ripped lesbian chick in the trucker hat whose moves are 1,000 times better than yours (just don’t try to Snapchat the experience).

Similarly, avoid opening up too much and spilling a lot of baggage on a date early on when you are still in the "getting to know each other" phase.
