I'm thinking the Jersey shore is well suited to you.

I don't recommend this city to everyone because most people aren't discerning enough to appreciate it, but since you seem so secure in your mission and wise beyond your years, I urge you to look into Pine Bluff, Arkansas, one of the great cities of the American South.

San Diego has 20% more SINGLE MEN than WOMEN. This is NUTS!!!
No wonder women are so stuck up, they have so many more options! (O fensive, but true )

Was the rest of your OP just pretext? It seems like you honed in completely now on where it is the easiest to pick up women.


You're 24 years old, into fitness and make ~140k a year. It should not be that hard for you to attract all type of women. Rather it is for a hookup or something more sincere in virtually any big city in the country.


Seriously dude. What is all this obsessions with these stats?

Spending a couple minutes to make an informed decision isn't obsessing. I'm building a skyscraper, not digging a ditch.

I totally disagree with you. Demographics are a significant contributor of the dating / number game. I feel that you are much older than me, dating is a struggle for 99% of men and was for me until I figured it out. At the moment, I have no interest in committing to a single girl and no interest in competing with a chick texting 10 other guys.

And yes, I did ask this 6mo ago because I do my research.
Iím not quite sure you have figured it out. If you have M/F ratios and asking for advice on CD forums would be the last thing on your mind. The fact you say dating is a struggle is for 99% of men says a lot too, lol.

If you have confidence and personality, and most importantly youíre not a creeper, dating/meeting the opposite sex is very easy regardless of where you live.

After all you stated:

That will not be the case in NYC. Your 140K salary will be much less impressive there. But if that no longer is an issue, and of course can make NYC more that work with that salary, then NYC it is.



After all NYC is top dog in the US and among the top cities on the planet. If it is in contention then frankly I'm not sure why you would even consider other locations.

A young single guy making 140k will do great in NYC. In fact, OP I fully encourage you try NYC out. Living here is such a unique experience, and there's a lot of beautiful women. Very diverse too (which for me at least is important when it comes to women, I don't want to only be restricted to white chicks.)

I value the following:
- Dating scene (very important)
- Fitness (very important)
- Maximizing my remote salary (e.g. No taxes, low COL)
- Events
- Beach (People are just happier, fit, chill when they live near a beach)
- Public transportation (I like walking since I work from home)
- Tech (no so important as I hate techies but I am one)
- Friendly people (After seeing the Seattle Freeze - Seattle was a big NOPE)
- Food (The food in Chiang Mia was soooo good and cheap)


I'm considering the following cities:

- Chicago River North - #1 on my list. I keep looking at condos in River North over looking the river. Probably the BEST city for dating outside NYC. Cold as **** and no beach. I see <300k condos that overlook the river and I predict the property would rise year over year.

- Fort Lauderdale Beach Front or Miami - FtLaud has low COL, FL has no state income. The dating scene does looks bad. I would likely get a beach front condo. And I would have to drive which I'm not a fan.

- Las Vegas Strip - Possibly good dating scene? Cheap COL, 70$ flights anywhere. Infinite entertainment. Hyped. Sketchy outside the strip.

- NYC - Expensive, but I could afford it. Seems like a more expensive version of Chicago that isn't worth the extras.

- LA - Expensive. I don't know much here.

- San Diego - I keep hearing good things about SD. (But that 13% Cali tax)

If there's a city I'm missing, please recommend let me know.

I am open to moving outside the US too. Possibly Chiang Mia, Phuket, Barcelona, Paris.

- Dating scene (very important)

Midtown Atlanta, Miami, or Nashville could be good spots.

Atlanta has everything but the beach, and you could live in midtown and not need a car. You could fly anywhere fast with the busiest world's airport there.

Miami has everything you want. Unless you aren't a Florida fan-no state income taxes either.

Check out Nashville. Red hot investment city currently, good flights out to many locations, no state income tax, a thriving singles/events/dating scene and lots of good looking people (lol, what I hear and what I've observed after many trips there!)

SD seems awesome, but I don't want to die single.

Denver is def could be good. I'm not sure about Boston or DC.
Take Denver off your list. Its 50% male, has no beach, and while it's an extremely fit and young city with a growing percentage of residents in your age bracket, it may be too aloof overall and the women too judgmental for your tastes. Exercise in Denver consists of strenuous outdoor activities, like hiking up and down 14,000 mountains in a single afternoon or cross country skiing out in the snow and cold for hours. And you had better be good at either one to get more than a casual conversation from any number of women.
