As has been shown in TV series such as HBO’s ‘Sex in the City’….dating in New York City takes a thick skin and an even stronger ego. Finding Ms. or Mr. “Right†or perhaps, “Just for Right Now†has become a mega industry. In Manhattan, single men and women may register with dating agencies, websites or join private, singles-only clubs. There are also activities planned for the unmarried as well as travel services and restaurants geared to singles of all ages and sexual preferences. Online services range from comprehensive activities for singles (www.singlesonthego.com/nyc) to matchmaking agencies such as www.match.com and www.eharmony.com. Single after 30, once a stigma worse than death, is now a cottage industry with thousands of websites, agencies and more offering assistance in locating that “special someone.†One may not find true love, but may very well make someone else wealthy in the process!

To get a thorough, up-to-date take on what's happening in gay and lesbian nightlife, pick up copies of HX (www.hx.com), the New York Blade (www.nyblade.com), or Next. They're available for free in bars and clubs all around town or at the Lesbian and Gay Community Center, at 208 W. 13th St., between Seventh and Eighth avenues (tel. 212/620-7310; www.gaycenter.org). The interdisciplinary weekly Time Out New York boasts a terrific gay and lesbian section that some consider to be the city's best source; another great source is the legendary free weekly Village Voice. Always remember that asking people in one bar can lead you to discover another that fits your tastes. These days, many bars, clubs, cabarets, and cocktail lounges are neither gay nor straight but a bit of both, either catering to a mixed crowd or to varying orientations on different nights of the week. Be sure to see what's happening at such clubs as Exit and Vinyl, which regularly cater to gay and/or gay/straight mixed crowds.

Dating and Dating Services in New York City are big business. Whatever one’s age or sexual persuasion, there have never been more options to explore when charting a course to finding either a life mate or the perfect date.
