We have to find a way to get more females relocated to Menver, and PRETTY ones. Denver already has enough of the butch-looking types. Actually, males outnumber females in other parts of the state, not just Denver.

If you live off 128 or 72 you have direct access to mountains.

Boulder is best, but most expensive, and gets twice the snow of Denver.



Heavy side? CO is the leanest population in the USA. Its hard to find lookers in CO, but that is due to two things; they don't wear makeup or dressup, and they are heavily wrapped for 6 months of the year.

The native CO women I dated while in Denver were the nicest of any I've met elsewhere. The DougCo are from CA, and behave accordingly.
Don't be a Cali-Hater!!! There are also wonderful people from So. Cal.! AND, if people from SO. Cal. are moving to Denver it's most likely cuz they want to get away from the pretenciousness and image-oriented attitudes of LA & OC and are seeking a more relaxed lifestyle. Letts' be friends!

of course, it might get a little "Every man for himself" when the ratio gets skewed. imagine there are 2,000,000 women and 2,000,000,000 men. that could be a bit hopeless, even with 2M women there.

Good call on looking at Denver proper.

As far as the "Best Cities for Singles" Rankings - Yes, Forbes rated Denver/Boulder as top 5 for several years running. Unfortunately, their methodology in determining this was, "The number of singles is based on the percentage of a metro's population above the age of 15 that has never been married. Data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau." So basically any metro area that had a couple relatively large college campuses nearby made the list. Fair enough (also note than when they discluded Boulder in following years the city dropped a significant rank)... but what would be more appropriate for this topic would be a "Best Places for Male Singles" and a "Best Places for Female Singles" study. Perhaps Denver would turn out #1 for female singles, but much lower on the list for male singles.

forbes had denver/boulder as #1 for 3 years running, which dropped to something in the high teens, if i recall, last time around when they "adjusted their metrics" (by including aurora rather than boulder??) or something like that. i think that stuff is more soft marketing for cities than much else, for the most part.

forbes' criteria had a bit to do with how many people were on match, as well. and, how cheap a 6 pack and pizza might be, or how "cool" people think the city might be, or # of restaurants and bars (regardless of variety or quality). yet, they didn't consider that people might be STAYING single due to some cultural oddity, or that some singles might do fine, while the rest might not (no comment on m:f ratio, no substantial comment on the culture of the place other than "there are museums - regardless of how many people actually ever use them) or "if you're not sporty, you might get left out". anyway, some of their criteria seem like reasons for a place to come in last, but, that's my own opinion.

denver boulder are probably decent for female singles, i agree. probably more so for a particular demographic or two of the women...

I don't know how to state this without sounding bitter, rude, out-of-line, even..perhaps..but as a native Colorado who has since moved and lived elsewhere....there is something unique about the majority of women in Colorado...and not unique in a good sense but unique in how caddy and jealous and b*****y they are...as if they are constantly sizing you up as competition rather than a potential friend. I realized, as a native Coloradan, after moving out-of-state, that in fact I wasn't a female who preferred male friends....it's just that I hadn't met the right women....and i'm sorry to say...as a native female from Colorado....there's a weird negative streak in a lot of the females who live here...at least in the Denver/Boulder/Greater metro area...anyone else have thoughts on this?

People are people. Some people are jerks, some are nice. I think it's easier to generalize people across socio-economic lines (wherein people can make assumptions and judgments about rank in society) than geographical lines.

well, geographical lines DO correlate with "culture". canada, mexico, the northeast, the south, the west coast are geographical as well as cultural identities to some extent (regardless of whether or not some individuals within those regions might reflect the "culture"), no?

it's not impossible that this might not just be the "females", and it might not just be in the "natives" of some of the region?
