Why, yes- big time.

Per capita, we have the largest amount of a certain types of voters (who strongly support Rick Warren on WHATEVER he says).

Quite frankly, I'm turned off. Not to mention the avid loyalty to FOX news media popular amongst the general public. My dating pool's limited, but that will soon change!

At a population of roughly 3200, and the nearest large town 50 miles away, I've come to the conclusion it has. Married couples and older folks everywhere. So I put the house on the market a month ago. Wasted too much time in this pit.

It definitely did have an impact. I live in Colorado, and in the area of the state I live in (and go to school in), it is largely a very liberal and 420-friendly atmosphere. It's definitely difficult to find others who share a Christian and conservative mindset.

As the old fisherman saying goes, if you wanna make catches, you gotta go where the fish are
Years ago I moved from New England to Los Angeles and my dating life improved exponentially.

Currently dating a woman outside of my city. Most women in my city are shallow and stuck up ghetto Queens, if not shallow and stuckup ghetto Queens, than pretentious, superficial, narcissistic, entitled hipster yuppie transplants from the Midwest!

The premise of this thread is definitely true. Though I’ve had reasonable success in dating, the local demographics have greatly affected my options and expectations. I’m a “limousine liberal” relegated to the blue-collar/rural locale straddling the rust-belt Midwest and the traditionalist South, to a decaying town and its virulently anti-intellectual, dogmatically theistic, “family oriented” mindset. Business travel to the Northeast or the West Coast feels like a tremendous relief, a surfacing, gasping for air.

A girlfriend is first and foremost a friend. Friends share a modicum of commonly held values and interests. They don’t need to have identical finances or levels of education, but for the relationship to deepen and to flourish without feelings of imbalance, the two parties can’t be inordinately far apart. And it is absolutely imperative in a romantic partnership to reach agreement on the big-3: religion (or lack thereof), children (or lack thereof) and money-management.

Resourceful people can thrive even in harsh environments, but having a good selection of palatable prospects is greatly contingent on where we search.
