What are the best cities for dating for single black woman in mid-thirties? I’m looking to relocate to a city that is better than my current city to increase the likelihood I can’t date, get married, and have children. It’s not important that my partner make more money than me but it is important that we share similar values, he has ambition, and can function as a leader of the house.

I think if you are looking to simply date it’s the obvious, Atlanta, Houston, New York etc. if you are looking for marriage try a smaller city that still has a black population that has black professionals and allows you to shine but not just be a number. Thinking like a Minneapolis, an Orlando, a Charlotte, an Austin type of city.

I would agree not Austin. Although I moved there in 2017 left for a year and came back and I noticed a significant increase in the black population when attending social events.

ATL, NYC, DC, Houston, Chicago, Raleigh

Because it is a giant dating game of chess. Generally good for guys, not so much for women. We do have a decent professional scene. My experience has been trash dating even still.

Maybe Dallas. I’m a married BW in the area. So my observations are outside looking in. The sistas seem to get love in Dallas. There are lots of HBCU grads-which I think tends to make it easier to find a professional black man who date Black women. You also see BW with black, white, Asian, and Hispanic men when you go out here. At the same time, Dallas can be very cliquey-at least for us married folk. Most of my single friends grew up here. So, I’m not sure how this impacts the dating scene.

Unless you are D9, involved in a church, or into the bar/club/ boozy brunch scene, it can be hard to get plugged in. That’s not to say we don’t do other stuff. I’d regularly run into other black people at workout classes, the spa, art shows, etc. pre-COVID, and to be fair, I’ve my fair share of brothers try to show interest (until they saw my ring) at random places like Starbucks or in the mall. Still, it just seems like if you aren’t doing the stuff I mentioned in the first paragraph, people can kind of be “no new friends” unless you get an intro from someone else. Urban League YP can be a bit of an exception, but even with that, my experience has been that it’s very D9-focused. I should also add that MLT/ Consortium are pretty strong here (if you have affiliation with either of those), but most of their events are during the week (although MLT was getting better at weekend events pre-COVID) and not conducive to the consulting lifestyle.

Atlanta or NYC. Spiritually dangerous, but the likelihood of finding a dude is higher than anywhere else with those stats. I was going to say Dallas or Houston but men with any kind of success tend to be churchy and want their women younger.

I’m new to this bowl and to investing in general. My spouse and I have around 305k in liquid assets, no debts, no mortgage (renting), kids (all early school age,childcare expenses are minimal during wfh). 401k almost nonexistent (~15k) since only recently moved to the US but maxing out this year. HHI is about 200-205k. Would appreciate advice on investing. Cannot do individual stock (m&a at work). If invest into etf (sp500) how long would it take to hit 1M milestone? is now a good time to buy?
