Top 10 Reasons Why It Sucks To Be Single In NYC


How many cute couples can one person pass on the lonely NYC streets?  How many times can one person listen to the guilt from a mother questioning “why are you still single?”  How many chick flicks can one person watch over a pint of ice cream while “I’m going to be alone forever” tears pour from the eyes?  Good thing we have a good solution!  But first, let’s commiserate over the Top 10 Reasons Why It Sucks To Be Single In NYC:

10) Being the 3rd wheel sucks
although not having to share your ice cream is pretty sweet



9) You have nobody to make out with on the cab ride home from a night out
even though you probably found someone to make out with while you were at the bar


8) You cant kill a cockroach
but you are perfectly capable of screaming and hibernating in your bed until it’s gone


7) People in New York City are hard to impress
and you’re hardly impressed by them anyway



6) There are way too many dating apps
and way too many creeps



5) Drinking alone makes you an alcoholic
but for some reason drinking with a partner makes it romantic



4) You get mad at people’s PDA on the subway
but really you’re just jealous

3) You don’t have a built in beer pong partner
and let’s face it, that guy that swears he’s the beer pong champion is just a douchebag



2) The rent is too damn high for a 1 bedroom if you’re not splitting it
and you’re not one of the lucky ones whose parents are paying your rent

1) Winter
because nobody wants to be alone during cuffing season

Love is in the air!

We know there are many reasons why people join ZogSports: some for the love of the sport, some for the love of the happy hours, some for the love of the camaraderie, and some for the love of love.  We’re always overjoyed to hear about couples who have met through ZogSports.  We take pride in the fact that there have been hundreds of weddings, and even dozens of babies, that have resulted through the help of ZogSports.

Today, we’re highlighting one of these Zog couples.  Here is Marelle with her story:


Hi Zog – I have seen so many engagement and marriage stories, so I wanted to share mine!

My (former?) boyfriend, Sean Cacciabaudo, and I got engaged 12/01/13.  After moving back to NYC, I was having trouble making new friends and meeting good guys.  My friend Melissa and I decided to sign up as free agents for Zog bowling on Monday nights to do something different.  We were put on a team with 4 other people (Bowling With the Homies, Winter 2012), and I knew it would be a great time because of all our pre-bowling e-mail exchanges.  Melissa and I met up with Kirstyn Peterson a few days before our first game so we could get to know each other.  That night, Kirstyn showed us pictures of the other people on the team and told me, “I think you’ll like Sean…”  A few days later we had our first game and socialized a bit, but it wasn’t until Sean and I realized we both took the 6 train home that we had the chance to really talk.  The next week, in true Zog form, we ended up staying at the bowling alley bar well after our games were over, and he later asked me on a date for that weekend.


Two and a half years, 11 sports “seasons” as teammates, and a Zog ski day trip later, we are engaged and getting married 11/16/14.  Kirstyn is now one of my closest friends in NYC and plays with us as well.

Thanks for helping find the love of my life!


Thanks so much for sharing your story, Marelle! We couldn’t be happier for you and Sean, and we wish you all the best!
