This is a map of singles in America.
It shows, elegantly and succinctly, the problem with being single in America today.
It also tells me I need to move, since as you can see, the entire north-eastern seaboard is ORANGE.
Oh Mah Gawd.

I suddenly understand why my boyfriend applied for so many colleges in and around the Chicago area.

... it wasn't for the gorgeous weather? }:)

If he does end up moving there, I'm gonna freeze to death. I'm more of a temperate-to-tropical weather person by choice.
He's really gonna lose out, though -- I mean, how much ogling can you really do when everyone's wearing heavy parkas and winter wear?

I currently can't feel my toes.
My kinda town my frozen ass...

Very very useful. Although it would be slightly more useful if it indicated sexual preference as well.

I would think there would be enough of a lesbian population to balance that out somewhat.
Also, I wonder whether or not this counts people as single who are in relationships besides marriage.

I just lost the game!

Oh no, this is not good. Wow is the best, how could you stop we have another new continent and even death knights }:) .
I love WOW.

I did play through Northrend enough to have an 80 (Disc) priest in 2pc. t7 with maxed herb/alch and was working on a DK (Blood/unholy) inscription/herb. I'm probably not selling the account just yet.
I stopped because it was getting in the way of my school work and my grades dropped by about a letter grade when I was playing. In the meantime, my BF has left WoW as well and wandered onto LotRO, which he's really enjoying. If I do get back into MMOs, I'll probably head over there to check it out. It's weird knowing more lore than my former raid leader without even playing the game. xD

This looks pretty useful, if only there was one of Europe...
Tue, 02/03/2009 - 5:57pm
... looking for one, but alas, all I got were ads for Russian brides. Sorry.

As far as I can tell in my area there is a lot of single women. Males seem to hide XD
Tue, 02/03/2009 - 4:06pm
for a million bucks.

I was thinking "You need to move from East Coast to West"...until someone mentioned preferences and the Bay area.
My area looks to be pretty even as far as men and women go. Still makes me glad I'm married though - I'm with Mei. I wouldn't be single again for anything.

As much as Slagar and I love getting hit on and all that, I give a great sigh of relief every time I realize that I don't have to deal with dating bullshit.
I just have to deal with intense relationship dilemmas... but that's a different topic

Well no wonder, us damn western male dominated states.
Tue, 02/03/2009 - 8:16pm
No wonder I've been feeling like moving west for a bit (hoping for a job @ Sequoia Nat'l Park). Then again, there is the preferences thing again. . .
Tue, 02/03/2009 - 8:26pm
I spent the summer out in California for my research, and let me tell you, Sequoia is amazing, or maybe I should say that Mineral King is (same area, different name). The scenery is fantastic, and there's caving to be had Hiked up to White Chief cave after bugging the cave coordinator for the location, and it's well worth the hike up to 10,000 feet, even if caving at that altitude is a hell of an exertion. The other fun thing, the cave is in a marble deposit.

Wow, my little town in WI made the map. Not surprised at the findings though. The universities are that way too.

If I hadn't just found the most wonderful gf I could ever imagine, I think I'd probably start heading east right about now and offering free snuggles to cute girls to get through the cold winter. But alas, my snuggle supply is being monopolized at the moment (not that I'm complaining *squee*).

Heh, as a single guy in michigan I'm thinking the odds look pretty good... Of course go figure, when I was working in DC I was in a relationship
Wed, 02/04/2009 - 11:26am
You should move to Dallas where we have lots of rich guys, and it's a lot warmer in the winter!
Wed, 02/04/2009 - 5:35pm
Two of my very good friends went to UD, and my cousin teaches/researches there. It sounds wonderful indeed!
Wed, 02/04/2009 - 12:14pm
They could all meet up in the middle
Wed, 02/04/2009 - 10:49pm
I seem to be in a good place, in fact I have been all my life. first San Diego, and now I'm in Santa Cruz, yet somehow I still don't have a boyfriend. maybe I'm doing it wrong XD
