Do you think being single in LA is hard? JC Coccoli seems to think so, because the comedian and actress just penned a hilarious essay on the subject for female-driven entertainment hub, HelloGiggles. She explains that, because our fine city is the epicenter of showbiz, "you are only going to run into dudes and dudettes that are basically trying their hardest to live their dream and in the process forget what it's like to be a good, caring, human with morals and like, a beating heart n' stuff." She goes on to say that online dating scares Angelenos, so we all date based on "friend of a friend" recommendations, "only to have him meet a model named Alexa (pronounced "Ah-LUX-Ah") and leave you on the side of the road to eat a Pink's hotdog? alone."
