Let’s say you’re a fat guy, which -- let’s be honest -- is not all that hypothetical.You can also be jobless, balding, and emotionally fragile, but as long as you can prepare a quality breakfast and at least two other good meals (even if they’re two more breakfasts), you don't gotta worry about those 50 extra pounds.I am possibly being relocated to Dallas and am wondering what the city is like in terms of diversity, dating and meeting new people.On a recent visit, I goy to look at the beautiful homes and fun "scene" in uptown but I didn't notice much cross-cultural interaction so I am curious if, in general, people hang out in racially mixed groups often?
I'm not sure whether we have any single African-American women in this forum. The nightlife scene is pretty good here though, I don't think you'll have a problem if you come to Houston!
You got clubs like Venue, Toc Bar, Butterfly Lounge and more downtown.
Than you got Roxy which is usually always packed in Uptown Houston.
The locals love their evening ”passeggiata” (slow(!
) walk through the old town) and to stroll around the cobble stoned streets( just for your info, cobble stones streets are dangerous for the high heels, as the ladies know well), sipping a beer while chatting with friends just outside a pub or sitting at a table outside a cafe.
Something folkloristic and stereotyped maybe, but not so far from the truth.
When the night is almost over and it’s time to go home, locals usually like to indulge in one of their favorite habits connected with the nightlife in Rome: they grab a “ cornetto”( croissant) and drink a hot cappuccino on the way back home.
I am also curious about interracial dating - do you see much of that in Dallas? Dallas also seems a little more reserved than I am used to.
People didn't approach others for conversation, at the bar for example.
There are no “fat” women in Atlanta, only “thick” ones. On the brunch side, you’ll eat ridiculously big, relatively inexpensive, boozy, and delicious meals with your boo every weekend, so obviously that’s ideal.
On the other, you might be expected to team up and ask for double-forgiveness after what you did together Saturday night.
