Ladies, are you wondering where all the unattached single guys live? Guys, are you frustrated with the lack of eligible single girls in your area? Well, I have good news and bad news.
First, the good news: somebody has taken data from the US Census Bureau and created a nifty little interactive map of singles in major metropolitan areas. The map is adjusted for local population, and you can actually play around with the age range to see which cities around the US have a higher population of, say, single guys between the ages of 25-29. So if you are single, you’ll now know where to move!
Next, the bad news, which really could be good news depending on which side of the aisle you’re on: Guys, when you complain that the odds are stacked against you … you’re right. And it’s not just in “Man Jose.” It’s everywhere. LA, San Francisco, Seattle, NYC, or Boston, it doesn’t matter—statistics are not on the side of your dating life.
Click on the diagram below, check out the website, and play with the slider! It’s actually pretty entertaining.
What do you all think?
Here are my thoughts on the matter:
Guys, it looks like we need to step up our game! Are you the kind of person the woman of your dreams would want to spend the rest of her life with? If not, in what areas of your life do you need to man up? (I know I still have plenty to work on.)
Girls, unless you’re over 45 (in which case it might be time to bring out the inner cougar 😉 ) … please stop complaining that you have it tougher than guys. You don’t. Also, like a Gawker article said “singles map means ladies get to have standards again.” hardy har har
Girls and guys, when you have found each other … you know who to call. I do wedding photography anywhere there is a blue, red, or grey spot. =D
