SF has some cute chicks but no comparison to NYC or L.A. I was in NY last weekend and it was actually a shock to see so many beautiful babies everywhere again.
The originality and content of your posts are such a refreshing change from all of your others.

i lived in austin as a single guy in my 30s and SF for several years as single and married. very little experience with Boulder, but have visited 4-5x in my life.

1. SF will have the most single people in the 30s and 40s, especially those who have never been married. It's the best for technology, most racially diverse, and the best for overall outdoors (bike, run, beach, hike)

The Big negative is that is by far the most expensive. There is also a preponderance of Asian women, if you are open to that.

2. Lived in austin as a mid 30s single guy. Lots of students ( i did date 1 UT student) and the divorced moms. Fewer professional single women in their 30s who had never been married. Really damn hot and the worst for outdoors and exercise among the 3 - but by far the best in Texas for what thats worth.

Cheapest COLA and better tech scene than Boulder. But dont fool yourself the tech scene is light years behind the Bay Area. Cheap by Bay Area Standards and you can probably buy a new house here.

Singles scene is aimed at a college age demographic.

3. Boulder. Assume its closer to austin in term of social scene and closer to Bay Area in terms of outdoors. Believe COLA is comparable to Austin, but that's a guess. Think its a bedroom community of Denver.

Worst tech scene among the 3. Least racially diverse of the three and probably most caucasian than any of the three - that can be a positive or negative depending on you.

I did appreciate my time in Austin but i found it harder to date there because of my age and race than SF. I will say i met alot of nice people in Austin, but chose to move to SF because i had more single peers (men and women) there.

Sausalito and Tiburon are wealthy MILF areas with more soccer moms and divorced women. I wouldnt chose that area as a single guy, but would live in the City.

I run my own technology business and can work really anywhere.

I am attracted like many to the combination of sunshine, tech scene and cosmopolitan nature of SF.

A few questions:

- Will it be easy for me to meet people and fit in? Are there single older male professionals that I can meet for friends, sport activities?

- How about the dating scene with women for someone my age? Any advantage to either place? Or will I be stuck in no man's land between college kids and soccer mom's.

- Any neighborhood suggestions? Or even a surrounding cool small town like Sausalito or Tiburon? How would those places be for someone like me?

Any help is appreciated.
