Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Historic spot that launched the best band you've never heard of: honky-tonkers BR549. The chivalrous gentlemen and the sweet Southern belles mixing & mingling in this big city/small town of Nashville makes for an interesting dating scene.And with the city growing by the day, transplanting thousands of new singles to town, they may start to notice these 10 reasons why dating here is different than anywhere else in the country...

You may even have to work with them at some point or be joint godparents to the child of a mutual friend. Music festivals are a big commitment to gamble on someone you’ve just started dating.

You learn a lot about a person and not always in a good way. Nashville is the type of town you can settle down in. And the dating scene-ster definitely seems to know what he or she is looking for...

What are you going to do with that VIP camper you went in on together when you find out they loved the Kanye show? and they don’t bother with what they know will not work.

In a city where the majority of commuters are confined to their cars, you miss out on the opportunities some cities have in meeting people via public transportation or walking down the street.

Maybe that’s not how people meet anymore, but it sure sounds a hell of a lot more romantic than saying you “swiped right.” It’s not only the norm, it’s preferred. Men open the doors and offer their jackets just as the ladies expect them to pay, but will still offer to go Dutch (strictly as a formality).

The rules of dating still side with tradition, for the most part.

There was a ton of buzz surrounding this restaurant/bar/club prior to opening.

Everyone knows everyone and they’ve all dated each other or know someone who has. On one hand, you could easily know everything you need to about your date before you meet them. People tend to settle down younger in the South, which makes it harder and harder to be the only single person at the dinner party.

On the other, you could easily know everything you need to about your date before you meet them. And the married friends feel bad that they only invited other couples, making you feel even Southern ladies are hot. Their Mamas taught them to wear their hair high and curled, shave their legs (not just the bottom half), and wear heels -- and that’s just to the grocery store.

In bigger cities, it’s common to just bail if the date is going badly or to bluntly castigate the other person when they talk about their ex all night. It won’t matter, because you'll never see them again. If you're a transplant, you need to step up your game. They don’t want a commitment, but they want your girl.

In Nashville, unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to never see that person again. Yes, you have a 401K, but he's dreamy and plays the guitar.
