Despite the deindustrialization of the local economy in the past three decades, Buffalo remains a very blue collar city, at least culturally speaking.

It's the kind of place where people tend to get married at a younger age, although there's no stats to back it up.

I can't quite put my finger on why, but it just seems like cliche people that do the same stuff.

If you're expecting the same sophisticated crowd like those in NYC who write impossibly witty and literate profiles on Ok Cupid, or the quirky Zooey Deschanel-types you'd see all over the place in Portland or Austin, forget it.

Profiles wit the expected references to da Bills, dem Sabres, Labatt Blue, motorcycles, vacations to Myrtle Beach, or "[insert ethnic group here] Princess" tend to be concentrated in the industrial satellite towns (North Tonawanda, Lockport, etc) and eastern suburbs.

Either that or the college women who are pretentious elites in training. Most people typically do the same sorts of activities and interests, and they are not overly varied. Also, there is not an overly large pool of young adults in the typical dating age bracket since a higher than typical number of post college young adults leave town for better career opportunities. and a lot of people locally center their social lives around alcohol. I've even dated girls transplanted from Buffalo who were much more sophisticated than the ones described here. Generally, I found the most interesting profiles were generally from city and Williamsville/Amherst residents. This is so true, especially how Elmwood explained it. So, finding people to date outside of the typical Buffalo mold in this area can be a little more challenging. Please register to post and access all features of our very popular forum.
