In posting #3 on the previous page, the attached national map shows most of the South (except Florida) - and also the large metropolises of the mid-Atlantic - having an excess of single females. I think I know why. Because those areas have a large African-American population, and sadly, many of them are incarcerated, or dead of violent causes, or substance abuse. The wide gender imbalance of the African-American population is very well know.

You think you have it bad OP? I'm a single guy living in Prescott Valley, AZ of all places. The worst location in AZ for Millennials, single men AND women. All the single women are in Phoenix and Tucson.

Sounds like Arizona scorches all the singles to death when they get there.

Come to Raleigh. It's a sausage fest here. You can also move to pretty much any base (Jacksonville or Fayetteville especially) and find yourself swamped by muscular miltary men. Even frumpy unremarkable women will have their pick of the litter when the ratio is 10-1 at the bar/club

I was ready to respond and help the OP, but if they have really lived in that many places and still can't find dates? Wow. Maybe the OP should move to the East coast since the West clearly isn't for her. Or maybe there's a bigger problem going on here. I'm sure there are lots of single guys in Phoenix, Denver, etc. Once you're in a big city, do you really need to move solely because of this?

I made this comment to someone from the Midwest. She looked at me with amazement stating that people should only take their shirts off to sunbathe in private !
That's bizarre that she would make that claim.

Having grown up in a few different Midwest states, everyone sunbathed in the parks and at one of the several thousand lakes in the Midwest. A lot of people would be out there as soon as the temperature hit 60.

She has an odd history with ragging on a Arizona every chance she gets. I don't know why she moved back if she hates it so much. Obviously she needs to move to SLC since it's the best place on earth, I've seen her say this many times.

As a single woman dating in Phoenix is tricky... plenty of very attractive men in Scottsdale and Tempe but they are the club promoters, bartenders, douchebags that are very superficial and only look for 10/10 women in return. Pretty much if you don't work at the clubs also you won't be able to date them either as most of my friends are in this scene and they tend to rotate each other. Arizona is very polarizing in terms of who you can date, and if you are interested in neither then it will be difficult. None of these options pursue a normal career or lifestyle and if they do they are married already or already committed to a long-term relationship. I say this as a native where Arizonans prefer to stick with their high school sweethearts. No shame in that but I'd say socially Arizona is VERY conservative in this manner. I'm 21 and almost everyone I went to high school with is already married, having kids, buying houses... the ones who chose to pursue college like myself are in long-term relationships with someone they met in college. Ones not pursuing college are again, working at clubs or are married with three kids. Again I'm only a few years removed and I think I'm the only one still single and about to graduate college... clearly I don't fit in! Haha

I think for dating cities do matter to an extent, cities attract certain people. Phoenix tends to attract blue-collar extroverts who are usually right-leaning and hobbies include hiking and drinking. Again nothing wrong with that, but it's the truth. I'll be a white-collar, left-leaning introvert with very different hobbies. If you want a real relationship opposites attract thing just isn't going to work out for the long run, if I can't find someone attractive in my eyes and is similar enough to me, that city is going to suck regardless if there are more men than women.

With that being said, there isn't a formula to what city will work for you. OP needs to be realistic and think about what she wants in a partner and find out what city will attract those men.
