2. It's an ugly man's paradise:

"For one reason or another, the number of single girls outnumbers the number of single men exponentially. What does that leave you with? A bunch of really hot girls with really ugly guys, because, well, there wasn't anyone left for them so they settled. It's not uncommon to see a fat disheveled shlub with a bombshell, because this is D.C. and women don't have standards here so if you're ugly, common or just plain, please come to D.C. It will only be a matter of time before you find your one true love."

And here's the article: The Single Life: Eleven Reasons To Move to Washington D.C.

Unfortunately, I'm not "in to" Shlubs, nor do I settle

Ever wonder if they think the same about you?


As far as the nickname goes, I do not understand why a mature adult would think they would be taken seriously about any topic using slang or words that are the trend to use.
Much like fashion, comfortable, practical, cost effective is always in style along with proper words when referring to somewhere, someone or something.

That's good. If you have a husband, it's always a good idea to be married to him

I'm in my early 20's, and I definitely don't see Denver as Menver. Then again, I'm a conservative Christian, and it's hard to meet guys in the age bracket I date (23-28) who don't smoke pot, lol. I can't tell you how many guys have been absolutely shocked that I don't smoke pot, and don't want to date someone who does.

Do I ever think who wonders what about me?

She originally lived up in Boulder and befriended his sister in law at work who then introduced them. They then moved to Wash Park in Denver. I am married in my 30s and whenever we go into Denver I marvel at how many young people are out and about. I think it's a vibrant place to live and that it attracts likeminded people. I could see Denver being great for singles. Good luck!
I actually went to visit Denver and absolutely LOVED it. The vibe is overall positive with happy people (and I think they were happy before weed became legal!). I'm in love with the city and am moving there ASAP! By the way, your post is awesome.

Yes, Denver is much more relaxed and I love it. The people seem genuine and definitely easier to talk to in general. Such a fantastic place. I CANNOT wait to get out there!!!

The nickname "Menver" is accurate. I was there skiing last weekend. I would say the ratio is 60% man to woman. However, 40% of the dudes are gay, so it's basically 50/50.

There's a possibility it could be that some men in Denver are more feminine than the women and women are more masculine than the men.
