Carrie Bradshaw once said, "New York is the perfect place to be single. The city is your date." Well, not to hate on Sex and the City, but spending time wandering New York's many restaurants, bars, and museums solo doesn't exactly sound like the idea of a good time. Plus, having to spend our single hours sifting through OkCupid or Tinder to find a potential suitor is equally — if not less — appealing.
Seriously, try sifting through 8.4 million people to find THE one. Why does it seem that, with so many available people at our fingertips, it's nearly impossible to find someone who isn't a total creep? (Oh, and is smart, handsome, and funny, too). Are we asking too much?
Well, you can call us your matchmaker, because we've dug deep into the New York singles scene to find 22 of the most eligible bachelors of 2014. From an NBA stylist to a real estate agent to a music producer, there's a little something in here for everyone's romantic needs. Go on — start swooning over these sexy single men, and let the Facebook friending commence!
