So I am tired of the scene in DC but I have limited options as to where I can go with my background (Biotechnology and Biodefense). I wanted to get a sense on what are the best areas for a single girl in their late 20's looking to date. Other key qualities include availability to find science/biology jobs, moderate cost of living, safety and cities full of single men. Here are the cities/regions that I was opening to consider:

1. New York, NY
2. Northern New Jersey
3. Philadelphia, PA
4. Atlanta, GA
5. Raleigh, NC


Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated!!!

Since moderate cost of living and safety are important - I will point you towards Raleigh and possibly parts of Atlanta.

I heard someone say single girl in their 20's looking for a date so I came running. And you're obviously smart given your profession which only adds to the sexiness factor.

I second creeksitter with Atlanta. A friend of mine's brother works at the CDC. It's a real deal, no joke job with awesome pay and benefits I hear.

Plus, I live here and am 100% date-able.

If you're looking to date use Match.com.

If you're looking for a cool place to live with a massive biotechnology and pharma industry--move to Philly.

Really though, if you're single and looking to meet people don't move to the suburbs. Cities force you to do stuff: to walk around, to enjoy the nightlife, to participate in your neighborhood. You know what all of my single friends in the suburbs do 6 nights a week?

Nothing. They troll match.com and occasionally go on applebees dates; it's brutal.

Thanks for the responses! Right now I am working for a large consulting firm and since there are sites all over the US, I will definitely take this into consideration.

I tried Match.com, Plenty of Fish and OkCupid sites but they just didn't work for me.

I guess it depends on your age, according to the map and it only takes 1.
