Even though it had been my dream to live in America, I was very excited but nervous at the same time.
Growing up in Japan my parents were really strict and so I didn’t get an opportunity to start going on dates until after I graduated from high school.
If New York is the worst city for messaging, then Portland is the best.
While New York may be the most difficult place to get a message, it’s got some upsides —daters don’t ghost here as much as they do in other cities.

This data captures dating patterns in broad strokes — it certainly doesn’t mean that every guy you meet in NYC is looking for an open relationship.
If you want to perfect the art of flirting via text, start here.
Dating coach Evan Marc Katz strives to supply women with an authentic male perspective on dating, and his eponymous blog follows suit.
Expert advice is provided for relationships of all orientations and ages, while a lively forum provides a venue for the site's 68,000-plus readers to connect.
By chronicling her (mis)adventures in online dating, the 30-something woman behind this blog finds humor where few would expect it (OKCupid trolls included).
And this, I console myself, is why my first messages on Ok Cupid so often go unanswered: in NYC, millennial men reply to only 24% of all messages they receive — the only place the odds are less favorable is Los Angeles.
And it’s even harder for men; New York the very worst US city for guys messaging women, who reply to men’s messages only 10% of the time.
Looking at the percentage of members in the US who say they’d be willing to consider an open relationship, an unsurprising pattern is uncovered: Members in the central and southern parts of the country, which tend to be more conservative, are less likely to be open to open relationships.
