One of the best pieces of advice I ever heard for men living in New York City: "Ignore the urge to talk to the gorgeous blonde passing you on the street; there are 30 more right behind her."
Sometimes a little old-fashion romance, with the optional combination of modern-day digital technology, buds in the cynical streets of New York City, but it doesn't always bloom.

CANBERRA (Reuters) - A modern-day love story of a man spotting the girl of his dreams across a New York subway train and tracking her down over the Internet has failed to have a fairytale ending with the relationship over.
For Web designer Patrick Moberg, then 21, from Brooklyn, it was love at first sight when he spotted a woman on a Manhattan train last November. But he lost her in the crowd so he set up a website with a sketch to find her -- www.nygirlofmydreams.com.
Unbelievably in a city of 8 million people, it only took Moberg 48 hours to track down the woman, with his phone ringing non-stop and email box overflowing as usually cynical New Yorkers took sympathy on the subway Romeo and joined his hunt.
