This was obviously written by someone not from Charlotte

This was supposed to be a cheap date alert post. But as I was looking up some information about restaurant specials, Goggle took me to eharmony.com.

The article was called "Tips for dating in Charlotte," so I had to read it. As I read, it became clear that the writer has no idea how to date in Charlotte.

Don't believe me? Check out these nuggets of dating "wisdom:

3. It’s All about Uptown

When you want excitement and adventure for your date in Charlotte, you want to go to Uptown or the center city. Despite the confusion with the name (since some residents call Uptown Downtown), it’s where all the action is! From museums, bars, and dining establishments to nightclubs and hotels – this is the life of the city and the perfect place to take a date.

First of all, it isn't all about Uptown because if you don't find anywhere to park, your date is over really quickly. And in real life, who goes on a date at the museum?

Transportation

Charlotte has a great bus system, with over 40 stops and affordable fares – but the bus may not be the best way to impress your date. If you choose to go the taxi route, be prepared to pay a pricey fee. The average cost is around $2 a mile, not including the initial fee and any traffic or wait time, which some taxis charge for.

Just the fact that someone wrote Charlotte has a great bus system proves that they don't live here or have never taken a ride on CATS.

Dating in Charlotte can be fun, but with the recession in full swing and bankers becoming hated, dating in Charlotte has gotten that much harder.
