Attitude Towards Dating: Regional

Jasbina Ahluwalia asks Brian Howie, author of How to Find Love in 60 Seconds: I know that you’ve been in Canada and throughout the US. Have you noticed any patterns and differences among singles up north in Canada versus the US?



Brian Howie

North American Attitude Towards Dating

It’s simple.

  • The people in the West Coast are sort of frustrated.
  • In the Northeast, they’re sort of mad.
  • In the South, they’re sort of sad.
  • In Canada, I noticed that they were hopeful.

Canadian Attitude Towards Dating

Maybe that’s because Canadians are generally nice people. They were really a lot more hopeful, both men and women, in that, if they could just bridge the disconnect of communication and confidence, everything would be okay.

Northeastern Attitude Towards Dating

A lot of people in cities, especially the Northeast, want to blame the city. They want to say, “There are no good men here. There are no good women here. This is a tough town to date.”

Midwest Attitude Towards Dating

The Midwest wasn’t like that. Canada wasn’t like that.

They took personal responsibility that, if they can just make a change in mindset, attitude or approach, that they could probably find some success.  That was really nice to hear.

West Coast Attitude Towards Dating

Los Angeles and San Diego are cities where we’ve done a few shows. They are still very two-dimensional places. There’s still a lot of “look but don’t touch” and still very “check each other out.” That leads to less interaction, which is never a good thing.
