If you are worried because you are still single, don’t worry, there are tons of fish in the sea and there are many events like these 10 black singles events in NYC for you to meet that special someone.

Finding your soulmate isn’t easy, especially if you are living in a big city like New York City. Here, people are constantly rushing somewhere and, due to busy working schedules, it’s not easy to find time to go out and mingle. Dating and serious relationships are not for everyone, but for many people, relationships and family are the most important things in life. Being in a city like New York can be a blessing or a curse for your dating life. Settling down is not something you will easily find with young New Yorkers, but people seem to get more serious about that the closer they get to age 30. On the one hand, there are millions of people, so you’re bound to meet new people who share the similar interests, with no problem. On the other hand, there are so many people out there, that deters some from settling down with one person. 


Some people who live in small towns think if they move to a bigger town, they will immediately meet their significant other while people who live in big cities dream to move in smaller towns. There are many singles in the United States. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2014 50.2% of the total American population, or more specifically 124 million Americans who were older than 16 years old were single. If you take a look at the same statistics from 1976, you can see that the percentage has significantly increased. Back in 1976, 37.4% of the total American population was single. We’re definitely living in a different era.
