I have seen on many threads in the past that Denver is known as "Menver". I completely get that there alot of men who have moved here and there may be more single men than single women here. Most of the stories I read on here seem to be about how hard it is for single guys to date. However, I also see many single women on this thread moving here too...so...

Here is my question:
1. Is there any guy out there who has moved to Denver from out of state and met their current wife/girlfriend here in Denver or found dating to not be as difficult as you thought or heard it would be?

Thanks

It's not that difficult, dude. Fetch your best cologne

Ron Burgundy: So, what cologne are you gonna go with?

Brian Fantana: It's banned in several countries. It's called the black panther.

If Denver is "Menver" then so is Seattle, San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Dallas, Austin, Houston, and Omaha. Study this: More single men or women map. It's not a Denver thing. Pretty much every city in the western US with just a few exceptions has an imbalance of men over women in the population. The eastern US tends to be majority female. Why, I don't know? The single greatest surplus of men over women in any city in the US is Los Angeles. The single greatest surplus of women over men is New York City.

Furthermore, I've never heard the term "Menver" in my entire life until somebody used it on this forum. I also think anybody who uses that term is a loser who likes to blame their own problems on their city.

The few friends I have in Denver are women and they are single. Also, when is it that we experience a true percentage of any statistic? I would imagine if you hit the dive bars in cap hill the women to men ratio would be much differ than in church? And if you consider that most men are shy and you're not then you'd be in good shape regardless of the stats...

Default hmmm

For the record...I prefer Manver over Menver. he he.

I'm a single gal with single professional women friends. We all love men, and want to date them. But, I find dating to be no different here in Denver than anywhere else. The surplus of men doesn't seem to work in my favor. I'm at the point in my life where I am looking for something special...someone I can share a deep intimate connection with. Manver or not, that is hard to find.

I will say that online dating had fallen out of favor with many of the single women I know. We prefer to join activity clubs and take it from there.

Online dating is scary. What if the other end that is online with you is another female.

In the early noughties, many of my pals thought they were chatting with hot ladies. Turned out many got duped

What if the other end turns out to be a microsoft batch job or a very interactive xml program that sends you smileys. Microsoft has experimented with lots of such BS to further their networking sites when they first exploded into the scene.

Can a dude be shy?

In my experience, many of the girls I came across were shy.

This is irrelevant but a couple years ago, during an airport transit, I messed with this really pretty and extremely shy girl in the Riyadh airport. I even departed from the scene shaking hands with her startling the entire hall. I now realize how close I was to castration. LOL.

More insight from Ron.

The approach technique:

"You can use my office and afterwards maybe we can go to lunch"

"The only way to bag a classy lady is to get her two tickets to the gun show" <the arms kiss is a vital component of this strategy>

The evasion technique:

"It's the pleats. It's actually an optical illusion, a pattern on the pants"

In extension, White Goodman comes in handy too.

"we should mate, uh, date"

"we should not be confined by the strictures of the employee-employer relationship"

"I saw that, Michelle, perhaps I have to woo Kate sooner than nature intended. There's no denying when white goodman puts on his shiny shoes"

"hey, I have some news, you're fired. I called the bank and told them you are drinking on the job and they bought it. I'm about to begin my courtship with you, Kate"
