Tim Greenway/Staff Photographer Among the young and single, Portland’s dating scene has gotten an unfortunate reputation.
“I’ve been told many times since I moved here that it’s hard to be single here,” said Devin Green, an unattached 31-year-old woman who has been living in the city for about a year.
His friends were also friends with her ex, she said, and once they started dating, there wasn’t room for everyone.
Cleary said it’s a common problem in Portland, where it seems there’s never more than two degrees of separation between you and a suitor. “If I were single and met someone new, there’s going to be 10 people I know that are going to have something to say about that person.” Although Cleary sees that as a downside to dating here, Abbie Mc Gilvery likes the fact that getting insight into a potential new partner is only a phone call away – often to someone who has already dated that person.
