I personally....just seem to have found that I dont have a lot in common with whats left of the single guys in chicago....it seems like they are either all into sports, all into money, or all into art. I know that is a huge generalization (why I didn't want to go there) but give a girl a break....I'm blamin the ratio....but truly think that maybe the guys I have more in common with have already left to head west or south if they are not married yet. I tend to like the outdoorsy/rugged type (but a Phd is totally a bonus)
yes. come to denver. you'll love it.

Thumbs up Washington!

... although I'm biased as a recent transplant. I'm no longer single but there are tons of single twentysomethings here due to the job market. However, you do get all four seasons here. If you prefer a short winter, I would suggest Atlanta (based on personal visits) and Austin (mostly based on hearsay from right here on City Data ). All three appear to be at least moderately progressive liberal cities but I'll let the OP be the judge on how important that is to him.

if you ever get a chance and feel inclined, take a look at this:

some of the numbers here seem to explain a bit (inluding your excitement over the dc singles situation, in part)

That's why I mentioned Denver as a good choice. Denver is sort of a conservative, religious version of Seattle. If you're single, Christian, looking for marriage Denver is a better place to go because it is more marriage-oriented and there are fantastic Christian communities.

With that said, even in the most liberal cities if you find a good church and sort of put yourself out there, get connected, etc then you're likely to find a spouse with good values--even in Seattle.
Do you mean most are gay and lesbian? I can guarantee you most single Seattleites are not gay and lesbian.

Ha! No, I didn't mean to insinuate that. I know that Seattle has a very vibrant, growing gay community--larger than Denver's, to be sure--but I'm well aware that most people in Seattle are not gay. Liberal? Yes. Gay? Probably not. lol.

I like Atlanta, but Im a bit wary of how the Thug culture seems to be taking over.

Default beware of seattle

Seattle is a tough market for singles. People who relocate here are constantly complaining about how remote and difficult to "get to know" people are - both females and males.

Austin has an amazing job market right now. It's truly booming. There are lots of young professionals. Aside from that, it's a really vibrant and alive city. I visited in the summer and loved it.

I find it funny that Vegas is on your list. There are tons of people in your age range here, but the vast majority are really into the club scene. If you're into that, this place is a gold mine. If not, you probably won't have much luck.

I would have thought the research triangle would get more votes in the poll?
The demographics suggest that area of NC has a younger population than the national average with a relatively low percentage of the population over age 65.
