Ah, London- the nation’s capital. Not just full of bars, restaurants and “places of interest” but also full of men. Business men in suits, sophisticated men going to gallery openings, sporty guys training for marathons … you get the picture. So, with all these hunky guys around, why is it so hard to find one to sweep me off my feet?
I think I’ve managed to break it down into three main factors.
The first of these offenders? Public Transport.
Whether it’s waiting for a bus in the rain, or being forced into a stranger’s arm pit on the tube, getting from A to B is messing up cupid’s aim. You probably wouldn’t mind sharing your personal space if people learnt about personal hygiene. And let’s face it; there is no way to look sexy as you run down the platform trying to catch your train.
Problem area number two is that London is a fast paced environment. How can a guy be expected to sweep you off your feet if you’re already rushed off of them trying to get somewhere or do something? There never seems to be enough hours in the day to get through the massive pile of work on your desk let alone flirt with the new fittie in the office.
And finally, one of the biggest factors against falling in love? Technology. We’re all so busy trying to see what’s trending on twitter or who’s updated their status to notice what’s going on around us. Mr Right could be checking you out, but you won’t notice if you’re checking your emails. You need to put down your phone and open your eyes to what’s around you.
Finding love in the city is like finding a needle in a haystack. You know it’s out there somewhere, but you don’t know where to start. There’s so much happening that you barely have time to catch your breath before someone takes it away. My advice? Move to the countryside and find yourself a fit farm boy!
