As a newly single lady, I’ve noticed a few unique things about Orange County’s dating scene. 

For better or worse, here are some serious truths about being single in OC.

It’s Orange County — everyone works out, or at least it seems that way. Don’t be surprised if every date you go on starts with the same question:  “So, what gym do you go to?”

2. Everyone On Tinder Is Very Similar

Apparently everyone’s hobbies include working out, some type of water sport and love of collared shirts. It’s cool, Orange County, diversity is a good thing.

3. Everyone Knows Everyone

Who knew OC was so small? You know someone who is friends with or has dated every potential love interest you come across. So you know the inside deets.

4. It Matters What Part Of The OC Someone Is From

Finding out someone lives in Anaheim when you live down in Dana Point can be a deal breaker. It turns out OC traffic does play quite a role in your dating life.

Who doesn’t want a date at the “Happiest Place On Earth?!” There’s nothing quite like watching the fireworks hand-in-hand with your love.

Disneyland isn’t cheap and those ears aren’t going to buy themselves! Plus, it’s way more cost effective to have someone to share that corn dog with that you couldn’t help to splurge on.

10. You Can Never Guess Someone’s Age

People in OC never seem to age. Maybe it’s all the hiking and physical activities in OC that keep its residents looking youthful and vibrant. Either way, the mix of all ages makes the dating scene interesting.
