9th Best City for Singles

cupcake1.jpg Forbes.com named the D.C./Baltimore area the 9th Best City for Singles. Although we’re getting two cities for the price of one, the D.C./Baltimore area is down four spots from 5th place in 2005. Cities such as New York (up 3 spots from 8th place in 2005) and Austin (8th Place) beat out the Capitol with higher points in such categories as Cost of Living and Job Growth. How Austin beat us in the Nightlife and Culture categories, I haven’t the foggiest.

We’re a City of Wayan and his super models, a city of fabulous restaurants, The Smithsonian, and Butterstick, how could we have seeped so low?

Denver’s (1st Place) major, John Hickenlooper was quoted as saying:

“Denver residents are energetic, educated and incredibly active — professionally, recreationally, philanthropically and socially — all of which make Denver attractive to single individuals looking to meet people, get involved or just have fun.”

Look at the super models, are they not attractive? Just look at the evidence of our athletiscm. Are we in D.C. not educated? Not active? Not energetic? How can we climb the singles ladder?

Tell us here at DC Metblogs what you love about our fair City, we want to be in the Top 5 next year.

    Hey, I’m doing my best to support DC’s single scene. I even export DC fun to LAX layovers

    That Austin beat DC in terms of nightlife and culture can’t be as shocking as New York beating us for cost of living! Without being ironic, the thing I like best about DC is something many people experience each day but may not even notice. It’s the building height restriction. The amount of open space overhead makes for a much more civilized day-to-day living experience than, say, New York. I say that as someone who was born and raised in New York. I spent my last summer there when I was 20. It was very exciting to work at CNN in the World Trade Center, and to have a Chinese laundry on my block and a plethora of Afghan restaurants from which to choose, but I certainly felt like a rat in a cage compared to DC.
