On Wednesday, former New York City mayor Bill de Blasio and his wife Chirlane McCray announced their separation after nearly 30 years of marriage, two kids, and two terms in city hall. In a candid piece for the New York Times, the pair opened up about their conscious uncoupling, blaming their separation on his demanding political career and failed 2020 presidential campaign. Both were eager to jump back into the dating pool and joked that they should include their phone numbers in the article.

One caveat, however, is that they are still living together. Despite the unconventional living arrangement, many single ladies of the Big Apple, including a 40-something artist named Tatyana Burika, were enthusiastic about meeting the lifelong public servant with socialist leanings.

She believes he must be smart and is attracted to his proximity to power, height, and good looks.

Even rapper and former Barstool Sports personality Tiko Texas was up for a date, finding his tall height and his proximity to power enticing. However, she would want to see him in a more casual setting to see if they vibe.

Film producer Shelley Eisner, who lives in Los Angeles, was willing to travel across the country for a chance to meet him, drawn in by his resume, which includes being the mayor of the Big Apple, as well as his interesting backstory as a political figure. While she wouldn't mind going on a date with him, she also recognizes that dating a public figure can be difficult, especially with all eyes on them.

However, not everyone was willing to overlook his political beliefs and personal life. Gloria Velez, who works out at the same Park Slope YMCA as de Blasio, was turned off by his living arrangement and expressed her dissatisfaction with sharing a significant other. While she would be willing to give him a chance if he and his wife were to divorce, she wouldn't consider dating him with his current living arrangement.

Dorinda, a 71-year-old woman, sees things differently, believing that he won't have any trouble finding someone. She sees him as a tall, good-looking man, but also notes that he's unemployed. Hunter College employee Malin Abrahamson, also tall at 6 feet, was intrigued by his height but was turned off by his behavior as the mayor, souring on him entirely. She would consider giving him a chance if they were to meet and see how it goes
