I'm a straight SWF in my late thirties and recently had job-related opportunities in both Malibu and West Hollywood. I left it up to fate, and being that I currently near WeHo, it looks like that is where I will be sent.

I love the urban density and diverstiy and walkability and nightlife opportunities in the area, but I also feel like I'm getting up there in age and regret that I still haven't found the right guy for a serious relationship. Although I'm politically liberal, I'm concerned about the opportunities to meet straight men in a predominantly gay area. I realize Malibu is isolated and small, but would I have had a better chance of meeting straight men there? Or is it basically a bedroom community for married people?

Also, any advice on how to meet late thirties/early forties straight men in this town, outside of online dating, would be appreciated.

Would you expect to rent or buy in Malibu? The thing that would make me nervous is if you bought and later lost your job in Malibu, you could potentially be looking at a nasty commute back to somewhere with a job. If you rent then you can always move again pretty easily.

I'd also bet, despite the demographics you outlined, that you'd find a lot more single guys per square mile in West Hollywood and it's environs than you would in ultra low density western Los Angeles County.

When i was single and in my mid to late 30s, I had a lot of luck meeting chicks through female friends of mine. I worked as an engineer and meeting them in engineering environments (Navy bases, defense plants, etc.) was harder than meeting them in San Quentin.

Could you live in west la or santa monica and commute to Malibu for Work?
That would provide you with access to quite an array of what the city has to offer. You would also be going against the commuter traffic.

Living and working in Malibu may be a bit too isolated for you. There is only so much going on. Many find themselves driving from Malibu to Santa Monica and West LA for entertainment.

That's a good idea. Why didn't I think of that?
