“Where are all the good guys in Miami?” It’s a question I get at least once a week. I’m the girlfriend everyone comes to for advice. The writer, the love expert, the Carrie Bradshaw post-Petrovsky type. Sometimes I wish I had the perfect answer. Wish I could reach into my Marc Jacobs bag and pull out a list of perfect dates. But the truth is, it’s hard. How do you stand out in the high-rise, stiletto wearing world that is Miami, Florida? This girl took to the streets (in a nice pair of heels) to find out.

Ditch the Bar Scene and Go Outside

Instead of going to the bar - there are plenty of bars, with plenty of men but they might not be the marrying type-- why not try something new? The great thing about Miami is there is always something to do! It’s the city that never sleeps with a tropical setting, so there are no winter blues here. Try joining a fun meet-up like Let’s Explore South Florida, take a cooking class, go stand-up paddle boarding, make sure you get out there and enjoy yourself. Your naturally relaxed, fun-filled energy is sure to attract the right person to you. Leave the bar scene for the girls nights out.

Don’t Get Transient

People come and go in Miami. Each spring you will see an influx of newbies in the city. Locals know that this place is full of transients -- people who are going through a divorce, running away from a bad past, or recovering from the death of a loved one flock to Miami’s sunny shores. That’s why Florida is known as the “Second Chance State.” Everyone has baggage but be careful of taking on someone who doesn’t have a handle on theirs.

Food and Wine Festivals

If you love food and wine, there is always something going on in Miami that will tantalize your taste  buds. Food festivals open the door to interaction. You can ask someone about their food recommendations, learn how to cook a new dish, and meet like-minded people. Whether you are looking for gluten free, seafood, vegan, gastro, Cuban, spicy, or French, Miami is the city to take your taste buds on a ride.

If you get out there, meet people, and don’t get caught up in other people’s drama, you’ll find Miami is a wonderful place to live filled with fun, adventure seeking singles. And if you’re tired of looking, call Cupid’s Cronies and we’ll help you find the perfect guy to compliment your Florida tan.
