To be honest, I’ve been in a serious relationship for years, so I’ve never experienced being single while living in Astoria.But I do have friends that are living the single life.Recently, a local Astorian reached out to us because he’s currently producing a documentary about what it’s like to online date in the city.So, who’s ready to share their ups and downs with the general public?This is a realistic look at contemporary dating life in the world’s greatest – and sometimes most stressful city.We’re looking for diverse men and women who will give us a look at their dating life – with all its quirks, awkwardness, hilarity, and hopefully romance.
So many profiles and messages to manage, the ghosting, the showing up looking nothing like the photos, the creepers.We’re posting the casting call for selfish reasons: if an Astorian gets picked, maybe some of our local hotspots will get included in the series!Which brings me to a question for our community: Where do you take your dates in Astoria & LIC?Do you take Tinder dates to different spots than you take dates from Ok Cupid? Are you a single, 20- or 30-something restlessly checking your dating app in search of that one incredible person?How about dates spawned from mutual friends or the good old method, talking to someone at a bar or event? Emmy-winning producers at Lincoln Square Productions (a division of ABC) are developing a TV documentary series on the ins and outs of online dating.
