Bay area dating scene dating stories rss feeds
Time to visit "male friendly" countries like Brazil, Mexico, eastern Europe, Russia and the Philippines.I'm visiting the bay area now and am curious about your opinions on my observations below.He based his finding mostly on data that men here are rich (at least richer, on the mean, than men from any other major metropolitan area) and outnumber single women by about 65,000.Florida didn't seem to correct for sexual orientation, the favorite straw-man of disgruntled spinsters, but even so the underlying data wasn't really controvertible. In 2004 the research firm Teasley published findings that ranked San Francisco as the best place to find a rich, single man in the United States, as measured by San Franciscoâ€™s single male "Golden Ratio" of 140%, and specifically accounting for the large percentage of gays (which according to the most reliable figures is considerably less than people tend to believe at about 15%).
Specifically when the ratio was tilted in favor of women by 10%, low status men became not 1.1 times less likely to get a girl but 2.3 times less likely and high status men 1.3 times less likely. "It takes far less effort to find and move to the society that has what you want than it does to try to reconstruct an existing society to match your standards." - Harry Browne, How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World Finally, someone other than me pointed out the psychological factor of a lopsided gender ratio! Let me explain, say 35 of those women started dating 35 of the men in that auditorium. But now those 10 women see that there's twice as many single men as single women, so they get so much attention from the men, that they now don't even need a boyfriend.
Add to this fact that America has the highest rate of overweight people in the world (50% of Americans are overweight) and you have a dating nightmare for men!
I live in the SF area so I can completely vouch for that article.
California is the worst state as far as the ratio goes for men.
LA, San Deigo and San Francisco are horrible places to try to meet women.
Similarly a 2004 article in the magazine San Francisco estimated that unmarried straight 20 to 44-year-old men in San Francisco (not including Silicon Valley or Man Jose) outnumbered their female counterparts by about 12,000.
