Honestly....I have met people who

They're true to that ultra liberal
hippie granola eating stereo type.....
So that killed my desire
to ever see Denver.

Single men out there must be frustrated,
if that's the typical female population.
I think that stereotype is true and let's throw hairy feminist on there too LOL.

I'll just add anecdotal real-life experiences here...I fly for work to Virginia, NY, Los Angeles, San Fran and go to a bar I can instantly meet 2-3 single dateable women. Online is even more efficient in these locations with literally 5 girls ready for dates that night.

Here in Denver, I would be lucky to meet 1 woman in my age bracket (30-45) that is dateable and more than likely online it would require 2-3 weeks of "texting" and filtering before meeting a decent (fit/7-8 looks) girl for a physical date.

It's Menver indeed.
Considering the population keeps growing it should even out, perhaps your expectations are too high.

Lol, I know. People keep saying it's all in your head, Denver's no different than the rest of the country and then post like the Wikipedia MF ratio.

I've went to DC on a trip, where people say there's a lot of women, and I found it to be true. Just looking at the # of unaccompanied females vs males on the train or walking about downtown or whatever, it's like night and day difference between DC and Denver.

Many of the people moving here work in the tech sector. The tech sector is dominated by younger men.

I do think many men that relocate in Denver have expectations that are too high. If you are a single man in Denver you have to be willing to date women of any age (including significantly older than you) and you have to be willing to date women that are morbidly obese (even if you take very good care of yourself).

Actually, Denver has some very cool ecumenical churches. There's one that includes spiritual leaders from a variety of Eastern traditions and has Native American spiritual leaders speak, as well as Lutheran. It's oriented toward community activism and social justice. There are unitarian universalists. Some women have had good luck meeting guys in these types of churches in town that are more about spirituality than dogma, and are open to a variety of traditions.

I can't really say from personal experience because I moved to the state married, but I haven't seen the "Menver" thing. The gentlemen I know of average physicality and personality have no issues getting dates, so I'm not particularly worried about future prospects if my wife ever decides to fly off to Cancun with some hunk.

It's crazy to me that people think they can tell that the men/women ratio isn't even when there are nearly 3 million people in the city
