As a guy, if you have geographical mobility but your income is fixed, Seattle kinda sucks because it's such a wealthy area, so you're up against tough competition. People say that men here are total dorks and have no fashion sense but I think that's only true for a certain smallish segment of the population, and Seattle as a whole is pretty comparable to other large cities.

I think the general pool of people of your gender that you're "up against" is a bigger factor than the one people usually talk about (gender ratios, which don't vary much from place to place).

For me... I dunno. It's all about the specific person to me, I'm done with getting dates just to get dates.

Judging by state has no value really. New York State would fair poorly overall, but NYC is among the top few cities to choose from.

I would go where I had the largest support system of friends and family. That's going to enable you to be confident, be yourself, etc.

Yup. These people are wealthy and ambitious. This is not going to your local Applebee's, sitting at a bar while reading a BMW brochure.

I live in Tennessee. I work in a factory town where the median age is late 40s. Low income, low educational attainment. The dating dynamics here are going to be wildly different than urban Nashville.

Single and looking to date? For either hetero/homo interests, larger cities for sure, of course. I don't think you can generalize entire states.

City-wise, these are definitely tops with a ton of singles looking to hang and date. They have a lot of nightlife, mixed with high paying jobs (makes for good catches), things to do on dates--romantic, adventurous, culturally, etc., and not to mention a great crop of attractive folks.

*Chicago
*Atlanta
*Nashville
*Dallas
*Austin
*Seattle
*Los Angeles
*Denver
*Boston
*New York City (but it's huge and dating can be a mixed bag of great and sketchy interactions LOL)
*Washington DC

If looking for a woman, New York City.
If looking for man, San Francisco.

Go where the jobs are. That is where you will find the most young people. Many younger people try to leave their hometowns when they graduate if there are not a lot of jobs or much of a future there.

But you didn't mention what age group of single people--I assumed you meant younger.
