I just wanted to know what cities everyone on here thinks are the best for young single men.

I guess the
top criteria would be:

Availability of young single women

Exciting and diverse Nightlife

Job opportunities for young professionals



I am a 23 yr old male. I am not looking to get married any time soon (probably no earlier than 30). I guess I would like to mostly casually date. I like going to bars and occasionally clubs.

Obviously there is a lot of subjectivity on a topic like this. I just wanted to hear what you believe based on your experiences. Thanks!!

ja1myn, I'm not sure if you read the OP's comment but he clearly said availability of young single women. But anyway. Seattle and Anchorage. My uncle lives in Seattle, and after staying there for just a year, had already found a girl and was married (and she was of different race/ethnicity). And as for Anchorage, you'd be surprised how even in cooler weathered places young people still find ways to hang out. Seattle, Forbes.com The Best Cities For Singles (for Seattle. Hope that helps...

Wow Anchorage, I would never have expected that. I have always wanted to visit Alaska. I've heard great things about Seattle and could definitely consider living there. D you know any neighborhoods specifically suitable for grad students and young professionals.

The East coast is the place to be for you then. There are more single women on the East than the West.

So Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, D.C., and New York would probably be your best bets.

Haven't spent much time in New York, Baltimore, or DC unfortunately, tough I have been to all three. I am originally from Boston (lived near there when I was a kid) and was just in the city a few months ago. It does seem like it would be a great area to live.

I thought that Seattle had more men than women due to the strong military presence and high tech industry. I think they even have more Black men than Black women in the Seattle area and that is rare.

Anchorage also surprises me due to the ratio of men to women on top of the strong military presence there as well.

I'd also search through a bunch of these singles maps to give you an idea of places that may fit what you are looking for: singles map - Google Search

True there is a military presence, but having been there it's not very strong, just more than the average large city. But what I think is the benefit of living in the Seattle area is that there are an equal share of single men and women, and even in the suburbs there are plenty singles who reside alongside married families. Thus having friends and family who live in Everett, Woodinville, Marysville, and Puyallup. Probably the best place would be Seattle itself, but Bellevue, Mukilteo, and Bothell. Here's a link for recommended singles neighborhoods in the Seattle area Best Singles Neighborhoods in Seattle - Page 1 - NabeWise, neighborhoods revealed. Have family there looking to open their own sportsbar in Seattle as well. But true there aren't very many Blacks in Seattle or the Anchorage area at all. So if one puts color over being with someone would keep most Black men there single. Hope I was of some help...

This was really helpful. I have heard of some of these neighborhoods in the past. If I do live in Seattle it would definitely have to be close to the downtown area, and it seems like most of these places are?
