Bachelor Life, Where Should You Live?
What is America's best city for men? Where is the most favorable female to male ratio for men?
If I were to move to the east coast, what city would I consider moving to? Recently, December of 2010, U.S. News, ranked New York, Northern Jersey, and Long Island as the best places for single men to be on New Year's Eve. I take this to also mean, best places for men to get action. New York is followed by Washington, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Boston, Memphis, St. Louis, and then Cleveland.
1. New York-Northern New Jersey - 149,219 more women than men
2. Washington-Arlington-Alexandria - 48,177
3. Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington - 30,929
4. Baltimore-Towson - 26,575
5. Boston-Cambridge-Quincy - 16,192
6. Memphis, Tennessee - 12,856
7. St. Louis, Missouri- 11,639
8. Cleveland-Elyria-Mentor, Ohio- 8,694
Up till recently, I've been considering Boston on the weak basis that it "sounds" like a great city. But, we all know New York is a great place to play and work. There is a rich culture (music and fashion) with great restaurants and clubs. Best of all, women outnumber men. Incidentally, New York was ranked the top city in the world for men by Politics Daily. How practical would it be for me to pick up and leave the west coast? The great thing about working for a Big 4 is that I can transfer to a different office in a different state and city rather easily. Since I'm not married or have kids, I'd say this would be the best time for me to make a change.
I'll need to think it through as I dislike the the fact that New York city is a major city, to say the least, and cost of living is bananas over there.
You only live once and I guess you can't have it all.
