The social dynamics of dating/relationships has changed with the times, technology, new social customs, etc.

No strings attached relationships, the hook up culture, porn, sugar babies or cubs, escorts, social ineptness from both genders, etc = are many reasons for the single population.

I've looked into this a few times, and from what I gathered Chicago has slightly more single women than men. I really don't think a gender ratio that favors men really helps all that much, especially when there's 8+ million people here.

I'm sure it was better in OC and SD..but I didn't spend enough time there to see what kind of men were there. But ya, the women were super pretty, even the much older women, and I felt like a 2 against them, ha. I'm originally from NY but I was a small child so i don't remember much, but my mom was there 2 summers ago and she said everyone looked so sharp and nice looking, at least in Manhattan.
I know of a young professional woman who moved out to AZ for better job prospects. Even though she found and secure employment, she could not secure a man in AZ. On the flip side back in NYC she was never single anf always had somebody. Here in NYC their are over 200,000 more single men than women however plenty of women dont stay single for long or have some sort of relationship with a man that is an lover, nsa, or fwb. Some guys here who are in relationships see plenty of women on the side who are primarily single. As for Manhattan 90 percent of the residents are not from NYC but from some where else, especially those who recently graduated out of college with major inflated ego syndrome, particularly the women. As for me I did not get better with dating women until I reached my mid to late twenties here in NY. Even though there are more single women here than men, women have no shortage of men to be with because so many believe in the notion dont settle for less, while its better to be with someone than no one. Plenty are women and dudes trade up, looking for something better. . NYC has a high birth rate, plenty of single women are having sex and popping out babies like nothing, especially those who are in meaningless relationships. Im deciding to visit the south or southwest in a couple of weeks, to many inflated bbws, single moms with 2 kids and heavly debt women who think their nana don't stink with entitlement issues.

I agree that, for whatever reason, the West Coast does tend to have far more attractive women than back East. It is not just the general level of physical fitness that they have (although this is a little better), or even the better style that they have fashion wise (back East really does seem to have more women in cutoffs and Birkenstocks in summer, or frowsy and bundled up in winter time). It is their faces and figures that are way better looking. I have traveled to Boston and New York quite a few times, and each time am startled by the stark difference.

MOD CUT (don't advertise dating websites in your initial posting)

This has been true for a long time. I can remember in the 80s seeing stats that found a lot more single men live in the West. I'm sure it was even more lopsided in the frontier days. Many men have taken that advice "Go West young man".

In the 80s the large East Coast cities had more single women than men. The last few times I saw stats on this it really isn't true anymore, especially among young adults. The places today that tend to have more single women are medium size Southern cities with large African-American populations. This could be because of the high % of black men who are in jail or have died from violence.

The city today with the highest male sex ratio is America's boomtown...Williston North Dakota. Tons of men have moved there to work in the booming, high paying oil industry. Many of these guys stay in "Man Camps". Tons of dudes and women are rare. Sounds like hell on earth to me, even if the guys make great money.

I think a reason most of the U.S has more young single men is that (thankfully) we haven't had a war like Vietnam in a longtime. A war like that kills off a significant number of young single males.

Zany NYC writer/romance coach chick gets cheated on by her dbag fiance and moves to Alaska where it's these gruff, masculine bearded types everywhere. She still acts like a dits though and lets the guy she likes have all the control, plus she doesnt even bother playing the field, so it's not that easy for her (Anne Heche is so retarded)- but it is for her friends, especially the cute redheaded chick who's been looking in NYC for like years and falls in love with a nice boyfriend in like 2 months. (great premise, terrible show lol.)

It also reminds me of the article in frisky.com where this NYC writer chick(who *mentions* Men in Trees no less ) moves to Missouri, and says she's "fat and average" in NYC, but in Missouri, she's hot. Lol. She suddenly gets alot of attention and gets asked out the first week of moving there.

I've also recently read an article by a woman from NYC who went to SF and stated she'd go out and see women who couldn't get attention at a dive bar in New York, being followed around by 2 or 3 decent men like they were puppy dogs...she was never so amazed at anything in her life. And this woman was a model with an engineering degree.

We need to leverage our looks for attention and good treatment, but we have very few playing cards here. Some (hetero male) blogger out there told me, there are only 2 options to have any leverage here are:
1. Move out of NYC or
2. Use personality!

(The trouble with 2 is that there are ALSO many personality-super women around TOO!!! Plus, it will only hold so long because a man will eventually cheat on you easily when he gets bored, or make you feel bad about not being perfect and talk about other women. Plus, it's just plain *disgusting* to see below-average men with women *way* out of their league constantly, and see all the women here terribly worried about being cheated on. I REFUSE the entire paradigm.)

The problem is that, if you're hot in NYC, there are also 10 other chicks on Broadway walking alongside you who are hot too, so there's not alot of value you have to the men here; they move on quite quickly and usually play the field with several women at once, while we don't find anywhere *near* the same amount of desirable guys. It's awful but at least I don't hate men anymore, because I realize it's just NYC men.


Just you wait and see, Dennycrane, just you wait and see!!!!


I know this is so old,but I had to comment.

Someone pointed out they were a 5 in Nyc but a 10 in San Fran.
I totally understand this.
But for me,its reversed.
But then...whenever I go out in Nyc,I get tons of attention. Here in Nj,0.

Wore the same dress,one in a club in Nyc,and the other time in Jersey.
got plenty of attention and whistles in Nyc,Jersey 0.
My sister is the opposite.
In Viirginia,I got lots of attention. In Nc,0.


Its funny the way location someone's desirability.
