About Melissa (a.k.a Single Gal)

Melissa (a.k.a Single Gal) is a native New Yorker and media professional with diverse experience that includes newspaper writing, TV news reporting, public relations and hospitality marketing. She has been quoted about dating and relationships in such media outlets as The Wall Street Journal and the Associated Press as well as on Glamour.com, Latina Magazine, The New York Post, Time Out New York and MSN.com. She has appeared on The Gayle King Show on OWN, the Dr. Oz Show, ABC’s The Revolution, KTLA-TV Los Angeles’ Morning Show, Fox Atlanta’s Good Day X-tra, KWGN-TV Denver’s Everyday Show and Fox Cleveland’s Robin Swoboda Show. She was selected by The New York Post as one of the city’s top 25 most eligible Latinas in 2007. She is currently shopping around a memoir.

Single Gal In The City began nearly six years ago when a dear friend convinced Melissa that her musings about dating and relationships were worth sharing. The blog is equally about Melissa’s longest love affair — with New York City. It also chronicles her search to find lasting love. Having grown up with two parents who were deeply in love, she believes in happily ever after. And, of course, in having a lot of fun along the way to finding it.

Single Gal In The City happily works with companies interested in sponsored posts, reader giveaways and other promotional content. For more information, email Melissa at SingleGalInTheCity@gmail.com.
