Hello All,

I was just wondering if it is just me or is the dating scene severely lacking here in Colorado Springs? I relocated here last year after getting out of the military and there seems to be absolutely no single individuals in this town whatsoever. Now it isn't nearly as bad as Jacksonville, NC (where I was stationed), but close. It seems as if this city is full of families with young children and that's about it. Right now, I live with some family and working towards transferring from PPCC to a 4 year university. I hear that Fort Collins would be an ideal town for a single man like myself vs. CS. Any input would be greatly appreciated. P.S. I am in no way trying to bash this town whatsoever (for all the natives). Thanks

I was at another simular forum and they did say that Fort Collins is the best place for single people and there was a few other cities outside of Denver. I am not from the area but would imagine there has to be some singles people in every city?, what about the University of Colorado is that near Colorado Springs?

Default Anyone single in Colorado Springs? Is Denver better for singles?

I recently picked up a magazine that ranked Colorado Springs as the #2 spot in the country for singles. This was based upon a number of factors including number of singles ages 18-25, number of entertainment options, etc. I was amazed that CS was ranked above Denver. I'm looking to relocate to Denver, but I wonder if CS might have better options for me as a single person? Can anyone share their thoughts here?

That ranking surprises me a little bit, though it probably depends on what you're looking for. The Springs always struck me as more oriented toward families than Denver does. On the other hand, the Springs is actually closer to the mountains than Denver (the city) is, so it's less drive to most of your outdoor recreational opportunities (well, except resort skiing), but both cities offer some great options in that department. Views and scenery in town are definitely better in the Springs, and housing is more affordable in the Springs (though wages are less to match).

For numbers of single people and nightlife, if you're into that, I don't see how Colorado Springs can really compare to Denver. Denver's downtown action is undoubtedly much more lively than that of the Springs.

This of course, doesn't necessarily make Denver a better place to live for you than the Springs is, but I'm putting that out there so you understand.

Default TFOX is right.

Springs is 'family' territory. Denver is great for singles.

Springs has several colleges and lots of military that may skew demographics to show lots of young/single types. Not.

Denver was recently ranked as numero uno for singles amongst cities like Boston, San Francisco and New York. It supposedly received the high ranking for its successful online dating...

I can't recite where that ranking came from as I saw it in passing and wasn't giving it my full attention as I'm neither single nor living in Denver.

Default Is anyone in Colorado Springs Single?

I moved out to Colorado Springs a while ago and have had the hardest time meeting people in their mid 20's that are single. Does anyone have any advice on clubs to join or things to do to meet anyone out here?

I have lived in both Denver and Colorado Springs.

Denver is by far better for singles than C Springs. C Springs is for families and old single ladies like me.
