Well I'm a decent, far-from-broke man looking for a serious relationship here in Phoenix, and I'm pretty convinced you and your friends are imaginary because you're nowhere to be found. Then again, if they're having one night stands with broke guys until the cows come home, not sure I want to touch any of that.

This is the problem; the guys looking for a serious relationship and the women looking for same aren't able to find each other. That's sad.

If only we had the technology to create a network, a sort of "web" of interconnected information, perhaps call it the interweb, a place where people could conveniently advertise themselves and their desire for long term relationships on a database, then contact each other based on compatible information and arrange dates.

Oh, well, hopefully by 2020.

That would be great, but it sounds like the right people aren't getting on the same web at the same time, so they're missing each other. Something isn't working, if what you say is true, that you don't believe LS Juan's Phx friends exist. Maybe you and her friends aren't in the same age group?

I dunno, I cast a pretty wide age net, partially because younger women seem to appreciate my existence notably moreso than ones my own age... so if they're online, I probably came across, perhaps even messaged one or more.

I posted my sarcastic post there because you can complain or you can take advantage of the medium designed specifically for what you're looking for. There's also an opportunity right here for LS to PM me for the sake of herself or her friends. I've got guy friends in my same boat as options too.

Get online, seek men looking for long term, answer messages(!!!!!), go on actual dates, show up for singles Meetups so they're not just divorced empty nesters. I'm tired of making all the effort.

In pretty much every city in the US, if you look at singles 18-34, men vastly outnumber women. Geography does not matter.

All of the men are in the burbs!

Travel into the city and it is easily 60% women to 40% men in the bars. Ten miles out, sausage fest. Every time I hear coworkers complain about the lack of men I think they're all dammed up about ten miles a'that'away-->

What? How so? With the birth rate nearly equal, the only way you could make sense of that is women are born, move to he country at 18, then move back to city at 34. Is this really a vastly popular phenomenon?

The New, Interactive Singles Map.

That should explain it.

Yeah, if you do the math it's usually around or less than a percentage point... on par with the slight birth imbalance, plus the higher male imagination rates. How the crap is that vast?

It will be interesting to see how this fares now that gays can marry in every state.
