How's the dating scene in LA? Is it true that LA has the highest percentage of unmarried folks in the USA?

I'm early 30's male and am thinking about the move to LA, but I'm curious how easy it is for singles to meet and mingle.

If you're good looking you will meet a lot of people............IF not then LA is not going to be the place to meet a lot of people......... Harsh but true.

I think it is really hard to get a relationship out here. I am friends with attractive people, but if you don't look "LA HOT" you are shooed.

I don't know if that is true. I'm ugly - and I'm married.

I'm so ugly that when I went to the proctologist, he stuck his finger in my mouth.

I'm so ugly when I played in the sandbox as a kid, the cat buried me.

I think it's easy to meet and mingle. There's lots of group activities to go to here through meetup.com, for both active and sedentary things, and I've seen lots of people in their 30's at the events I've been to. People seem to be non-cliquey and open to newcomers. I've heard of other activity sites too that you can use to meet up with a group of people to go off an do stuff together. If you're willing to put yourself out there, there are lots of places to meet people.

LA has plenty of good looking and glamorous people, but most us are just average folk, living in a big city trying to get by and take care of ourselves. as long as you are open to dating people who aren't bathing suit models, there are a lot of people here, some of whom you would probably get along with.

According to this map, there are 40,000 more single men than women in LA

How difficult is the dating scene for single men? For single women, do you find it easier to date in LA?

So all the "not good looking" people just never go out and meet people?
There's plenty of normal looking people in this area despite what you see on TV. And they do go out and try to meet others. And even date too!

Why would only the good looking people date?

The best place to meet like minded people is at work.
So:-
1 Get a job.
2 Go to work.
3 Talk to people.


Works for me all the time, a little too well sometimes.

LA is actually not a very good place to have a long term partner. Bars and clubs cost too much $$. And this is a city in which most people drive in their cars from place to place and many attractions or places to see are spread out. With those kinds of factors, it would be tough. Not impossible though, but tough.
