Sure, the dating pool seems deep, but once you start sorting people based on age, education, interests, etc., it starts to look really shallow. Seattle is the smallest big city in the country, a place where everybody seems to know everybody, so don't be surprised if your date turns out to be your roommate's ex's little sister/brother.
We also subtracted estimates of the gay and lesbian population in order to focus on men and women interested in dating someone of the opposite sex; check out our Welcome to the Gayborhood post if that’s news you can use.
Finally, we excluded people older than 65 since differences in life expectancy skew the gender ratio in the later years.
(Just ask my grandfather, who was very popular in the Miami Beach coffee shop scene back in the day.) How did we do this? Where the Boys Are Women looking for single men should try their odds in Vegas, where the ratio of men living alone to women living alone is the highest among the 100 largest metros: 1.34. San Jose, it turns out, also has plenty of men to choose from, with 1.23 men for every woman.
Several warm spots – Honolulu, Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, Florida, and Miami – also skew toward men (remember we’re not including those 65 ), as do some mid-size metros around the country, like Worcester and Tacoma.
To figure out where the gender ratio is most skewed in each direction, we went right to the data.
We know from our consumer survey about love and housing that not all singles are equally in demand, at least when it comes to dating.I never thought such a friendship could ever be found. Many thanks - Gloria We met through your site with a 98% compatibility.With your site I always felt very safe replying to letters. We are 'totally' compatible in everything we do, say, feel, like and enjoy. However, a million thanks since through you I have found my soul mate and life partner - Nigel. It was perfect prey for a band of hunters, wielding spears tipped with needle-sharp points made from bone.Sensing an easy target, they closed in for the kill.I want to tell you that I have met a terrific guy, he's sweet, generous and very loving, and of course I met him through your agency, it's a miracle.
