Thanks to a reader for sending the Bloomberg Article ‘Intellectual Meat Market’ Makes Washington Long Odds for Single Women:

Christy McConville has some advice for women in Washington who are frustrated with the dating scene in the nation’s capital: Leave town.

For women like McConville, it’s not just the fixation on work, it’s the odds: Washington has the highest ratio of women to men compared with all 50 states — 112 females for every 100 males, Census Bureau figures show. Among residents between ages 20 and 39 in the city of 601,723, women outnumber men by 13,716, up from about 6,000 a decade ago, according to census data.

For those who have lived in other cities – does it seem harder to date in DC?
