I’ve been scoping out what the dating pool looks like in these areas and it looks troubling for the over 30 crowd.

They get married real young around here. Its a simple kind of town. High School.College. Married. Kids.....and I would venture to say that the divorce rate is probably alot lower in Fargo than anywhere else in America, NONE of my co-workers are divorced.

I sure hope Fargo looks better in person than it does on POF. The over 30 crowd seems non-existent when looking for matches.

I wonder if there's an Internet dating scene. Once you figure out how to meet other singles in your age bracket the real issue will be the male-to-female ratio and whether or not that's favorable or unfavorable.

If Fargo/GF is like the rest of ND, it will be very slim pickings. Pre-oil boom, many small towns were dying off because the girls would go off to college and get a job while the boys stayed behind and ran the farm or ranch. There were stories several years ago about importing farm girls from Saskatchewan and Manitoba to try and keep the population numbers up. Now they import girls to Williston from Las Vegas but I doubt you want that hassle. There's always another rig rat that got paid that week and the only man who can keep their attention is Ben Franklin (that sly dog).

If you are single when you move to MT, ND, or SD and are over college age, expect to stay that way.

I would certainly think there are more men than women in Bakken area but I think it is a bit pessimistic to say people over college age in ND, SD and MT will be relegated to being single their entire stay in the states mentioned.

Just in case though, I better take my inflatable woman if I move there. I wonder about air loss though with extremely cold winters. I'll bet this issue has not been discussed.

You might want to try match.com POF is pretty hit or miss. There are women moving here too. It may be just a matter of putting yourself out there. At least your coming to Fargo and not williston. A girl i know waa JUST telling me about how desperate thw men out there are for female attention. Apparently some guys were following her around walmart in williston trying to proposition her.
