Yes, I just ripped off a line from a Beyonce song.
So an interesting study was just published about The 5 Best (and Worst) Cities for Single Woman.
This study is based on the operational sex ratio which is the number of sexually available men per 100 sexually available woman (sexually available? I'm assuming that means...single people), multiplied by 100. A ratio of 100 means a balanced population, while numbers larger than 100 indicate a surplus of men. A ratio of 110, for example, means 11 men are available for every 10 women. A ratio of 90 would mean nine men are available for every 10 women.
Basically what that breaks down to is this, due to averages, the number of single available men to single available women.
So in the 50 largest metropolitan areas in the United States, this is how they rank. Here are the top 5 cities:
•Las Vegas: 11.6 sexually available men for every 10 sexually available ladies
•San Diego: 11.5 men for every 10 ladies
•Salt Lake City: 11.3 men for every 10 ladies
•Austin, Texas: 11.2 men for every 10 ladies
•Phoenix: 11.1 men for every 10 ladies
And here are the top 5 worst places:
•Birmingham, Alabama: 8.8 men for every 10 ladies
•Memphis, Tennessee: 8.8 for every 10 ladies
•New Orleans: 8.9 for every 10 ladies
•Richmond, Virginia.: 8.9 for every 10 ladies
And in a painful 3 way tie...
New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.! Each of these cities has 9.2 sexually available men for every 10 sexually available women!
Cincinnati, the city that I call home right now, fell in the middle of the list. So I guess that's a 50/50 chance for me. Hmmmm...a move back to Austin is sounding appealing right now.
