The Worst Cities to Meet Single Women

If you’re having trouble finding the woman of your dreams, you may be surprised to find that you’ve been looking in all the wrong places.

On yesterday’s post, I talked about the Best Cities to Meet Single Women

I compiled this list based on a number of important criteria — number of women to men ratio (all our top 10 cities have a surplus of women, low divorce rates, level of education, social opportunities to meet these fabulous women, fitness level, and finally, good restaurants. After all, most early dates happen in restaurants — I want to make sure you have something yummy to eat while you’re making your love connection.

But, many of you have written in to ask if I’d list the worst cities to meet single women as well. I know, I know, you’re wondering if you live in a dating wasteland.

Below you’ll find the 5 most difficult cities to meet single women:

5) Dallas, TX

Dallas has loads more single men than women. (As do Houston and Austen.) The good news is, there are more women in Brownsville, Corpus Christi, and El Paso. If you’re a Texan looking for love, try taking a road trip.

There are about 40,000 more men than women in Seattle.

3 ) Phoenix, AZ
Phoenix also has around 40,000 more women than men, and generally speaking, retirement communities aren’t best known for their nightlife.

2) Las Vegas, NV
Vegas is more of a place to hook up than to live — there are more than 20,000 more men than women in Vegas. But hey, at least you can drown your sorrows in 25 cent lobster.

1) Los Angeles, CA
LA is about as tough for guys as NYC is for women. There are about 40,000 more men than women in LA, which makes for some pretty competitive dating.

I am surprised that you’ve included none of our cities on here or does your survey only apply to the Lower 48? Of course, Barrow, but even in the deep South (Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Juneau) there is a vast surplus of men. I am grateful for the information as I was considering Dallas, Austin, and Houston for near future relocation. Thanks, Jim

Thanks, Jim. I’m glad I could intervene before you found yourself in steer country.
You’re right that Alaska does in fact have a lovely surplus of men — we based the list not only on demographics, but also availability of places to socialize, level of education, and some secret sauce.

After getting a divorce, thought moving to Boise, Id it would be a great spot. Now having some serious doubts, seems most women are either married, getting married, have a “boyfriend” never sure about that one. So I am very disappointed, if all else fails find another area. I am 49 which doesn’t help plus expensive to move.

Try doing more of whatever it is you like to do — get involved with a meetup group to go bikeriding or help out at a pet shelter or volunteer or whatever floats your boat. Try speeddating, which is still pretty popular with the over 35 crowd and one of the most efficient ways of meeting people ever. The more people you meet, the better your chances of meeting the one. 49 is the new 39, especially for men. Hang in there buddy. Stay positive and you’ll meet someone soon.

Trying to stay positive in Boise, Idaho at 50 plus and it stinks. Ready to move where there are more single women in their 40’s or older.


Tim February 20, 2015 at 12:22 am

Boise, Idaho is the worst place to find single women in their 40’s or older.


Lisa August 13, 2015 at 12:55 am

For single women 50+ (and good for you for dating age-appropriately!), try Florida. Specifically, Tampa.

Good luck, I’m pulling for you!

You forgot the very worse city to date or find single women. Its a place women can come and feel like a rockstar! Its. A place where if you move in married, your wife will leave you within one years time. Its a place where a mans value nomatter how successful, is worth only a dollar or to change a spare tire. You guessed it, its a place where women rule all and mentality driven cause theres more strip clubs per capita than anywhere in america. Men beware, Portland Oregon is the worst place to move if trying to keep your identity, wife, girlfriend, or. Im a very humble attractive successful man, I have seen it. Cold rainy and attitudes from women match. However, if your an insecure women of any age. This is a place where men without challenge will lay down for you.
