He's thus rather uniquely positioned to compare the pros and cons of each (except Darwin and Hobart, sorry)."Generally, Australian men are a little less socially and romantically savvy, compared to Europeans and even Americans," says James."Dating skills and social intelligence are certainly not subjects taught at school, which is a bit unfortunate. He theorises that any male with a "bit of go in him" leaves Adelaide by age 21, leaving many extremely hot girls to fight it out for whoever's left (that'd be the dude with the mullet)."There also seems to be a decent population of attractive, international students in the city because of Adelaide Uni," he says."The main negative for guys is that local, more 'enlightened' men, report struggling to find an interesting conversation with attractive women."It may be a little politically incorrect but there are hot Aussie bogan chicks galore with nowhere near enough attractive men to go around."Hello, Jetstar? Sydney "For guys who know what they are doing and who tick most of the boxes, Sydney is very easy.
If you weren't blessed with socially confident parents or, friends who did really well with women when you were at school, it can be a very difficult thing to learn as an adult."In this country we tend to live in large houses, in sprawling car-dominated cities, everyone held at a distance; it's not a tight-knit living arrangement like many European cities."We've also inherited some of the 'sexual repression' of the English, as well as their preference for dealing with all romantic and sexual matters after quite a few drinks. Well, if you're a single man in Perth, James feels sorry for you. Men have a huge number attractive, intelligent women (who will only date a certain kind of guy) and a large number of tourists to choose from," says James.
NB: Billabong hat, singlet, boardies and thongs with Oakley's sunglasses won't get you far here, however.

In many respects, the cliche is true; Melbourne is a more enlightened city than the other Aussie capitals."Property prices and the cost of living are not horrendous (like Sydney), so the city seems a little bit less status-oriented, than Sydney or Perth.
Another interesting thing about Melbourne is that the people seem to travel a lot more than the other capital cities, which makes them more worldly," says James.
Canberra"Canberra seems to be an oasis of highly-educated, cultured, enlightened, reasonably well paid men in high level positions in the public service," says James."Guys really struggle here because of a relative shortage of women.
I'd bet any half decent woman living here would have a very easy time of it with dating," he says.
It seems to be an extremely masculine place, even in the really wealthy places."Because of the weather, it's really a minimal clothing city so men and women must stay in shape. However, thanks to the mining boom you'll also encounter "materialism, status-consciousness on a grand scale"."A little bit of good news: guys who are just a bit more enlightened, better dressed and more well read than average can find a really powerful niche in Perth.
This would be among the really beautiful women, who are not willing to date just another beer swilling, surfing, footy player," says James."For the many Perth guys who really do struggle, consider getting some style advice and maybe taking your annual holiday in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, where there are large numbers of attractive, educated women just waiting for masculine, single guys," he says.
James says dating can be very tough for guys, yet for fit, reasonably attractive women it's very easy."There's a small number of extremely attractive women (the city is famous for models) and, because of the weather, everything is always on display.
It seems there are 10 tall, athletic, masculine, highly-paid guys for each hot girl," says James."It has a heavy, almost-overwhelming sport, beach, drinking culture compared to most other places in Australia.
