Yeah, it's weird to me because I grew up in this area and remember what it was like when people didn't have earphones in 24/7. I mean, there were walkmen and portable C.D. players, but they weren't nearly as popular/prevalent, and they rarely stopped a conversation.

I can't remember, but seemed more balanced. I wasn't particularly looking for that statistic with NOVA (or DC for that matter).

But what did actually strike me about researching Washington DC zip codes, was that everytime I looked at a zip code that had high numbers of black residents, the number of women to men were consistently significantly higher.

I guess you could interpret that in many ways. But that is basically what I regularly observed throughout the District.

So, basically my interpretation of that, is that within the black communities of DC, the numbers of black females to black males is significantly higher, which probably drives up the F/M ratio throughout DC statistically.

And here I thought they existed just to flirt with me! My bad...

For Fairfax County in 2009, there were 404,000 males 15 and over, and 417,000 females 15 and over. That's about 97 percent as many males. These figures do not take into account the number of males that normie keeps out of circulation : ) .

Which is a number worth taking into account, I undestand. Not only is she cute, she also bribes them with copious amounts of Nutella.

So... what do you young singles think? Is it still true? Was it ever true?

"I don't know if this matters or not, but DC has the lowest ratio of single men to single women in the nation. For every 100 single women in Washington, there are only 93.4 men. Your odds get much better in Alexandria. I don't know why, it's just one of those funny things I've read in a few different places so I think it's probably true."

Normie, I can tell you what I have noticed about NoVA; A LOT of men are married. And by that I mean, if you take the same group of single, good looking men in my age range (early 30's) from California and place them here, they are all married. Usually the same group of men in CA would be unmarried. I wonder about that a lot and why that is.

This may have already been addressed, but I haven't read the whole thread yet. I'll start now!

LOL, actually I think LA's the exception and Nova's kind of typical. I've moved around a lot and married couples are typical for most metro areas, with the exception of the singles meccas in California and NYC where you'll find a lot of singles after age 25-26. In other cities most people tend to get married before they're 30. In LA, nobody ever seemed to get married, buy a house, etc. I belonged to a church where the 30's and 40' Singles Group had over 100 members and the big activity was still going to the beach to play volleyball.
