And about how I had all of this cool data that showed that there were actually more single men in New York, and they were probably just hiding indoors playing video games?I heard the men/female ratio is bad at most nightlife events.Most of the attractive ones are snatched up pretty quick and the competition is much worse than other cities. I know the bay area is full of tech men but is it as bad as it sounds?I was at the Balboa Cafe, sipping a glass of Whispering Angel rosé, trying not to make eye contact with a gentleman who walked through the front door.As I avoided his gaze, I felt like I was suffocating.Yet, she had a handsome husband and knew tons of people in San Francisco.
San Francisco is a city that often makes the top 10 lists of the best places for singles in the country.
Matchmaking service the Dating Ring has even launched a crowdfunded campaign to send New York's single women to meet all of San Francisco's "eligible bachelors." At first, as women do, I internalized the problem ("the glasses are distracting"; "I'm going to the wrong places").
It didn't help my ego that in January, Marie Claire pinpointed our fair city as one of the top five "great places for single girls." After attempting almost comical displays of "approachability" that have to be seen to be believed (trust me), I acknowledged the sobering truth: The courtship culture in San Francisco is not normal.
SF’s Chinatown, which the racial dot map and Wikipedia point to as to the upper right of the word “San Francisco,” is actually far more gender-neutral than similar immigrant communities we found in NYC. Right over the bay, Oakland mixes it up a bit while Berkeley is a nice little gender melting pot.
Again, race might play an issue here – last time we found that African-American communities seemed to have a higher percentage of single women, and the splits might be helped along by racial divides (Oakland [female] is more black, while Alameda [male] is more white/Asian). Sunnyvale, San Jose and Mountain View come up about even between single men and single women, while San Mateo is piles upon piles of single men and Fremont looks as blue as a perfect day at the seashore.
"I can't sit at a bar in Chicago or New York without a guy striking up a conversation with me, whereas in San Francisco, guys don't even look up from their laptops when I walk into a cafe," says Beth Cook, 34, a local business and life coach. "A lot of people are quick to blame tech, but that's oversimplification," counters Mc Gowan.
