The SF Bay Area where the streets are paved with single


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? And that other time I showed how I was, and that Manhattan is nothing but an island-nation of nothing but women? Now it s time to take a look at the other half of the puzzle: the ratio of single men to single women in the San Francisco Bay Area. Note: This is all fiercely heteronormative, and I m sorry about that, but such is the by the US Census Bureau. If you d like to see a hilarious side effect of this, scroll down to the last image. Please, have at this map.

Use the age range sliders to get it to an area that s meaningful to you, I ve started it off at 75-89. Singles ratios for ages 75-89: The streets of San Francisco are paved with menOoookay, that s a lot of single men. Very much the opposite of what we, where the core of Manhattan was primarily single women. And yes, this map doesn t account for sexuality at all, so there are plenty of men in those blue zones with zero interest in women.

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). It doesn t line up as much on the east side, though, so take that with a grain of salt. We can zoom out a bit further to include the Bay in its complete glory: I don t know what to say except  the Bay Area is full of single men.

What can we do about it? Just move Manhattan into the middle of the Bay? I, sadly, don t have answers for you. 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 know absolutely nothing about the West Coast, so I m going to need your help with my analysis.

Comment below, or  to let me know your incredibly astute (I m certain of it! ) observations. What I lack in modern-day knowledge, though, I made up for in old maps. Here s a from a 6895 Census Atlas: Pink is women in excess, the ruddy, brutish reddish-brown is extra men.

If you re straight, single, and looking for love, my best advice might just be to  go buy a plane ticket. Or, wait it out! If you read up on the age issues on my, you d find that once all the men get old and die off, it s nothing but single women all across America. This was the issue that caused the original trouble, though: when you organize things at the level of an entire city (and its surrounding suburbs), you miss out on the nuance that breaks the heart of every single woman in New York City.

Playing around with the age ranges for the Bay Area, I set it to 55-69 and found a map that just plain made me giggle. While the rest of the world has decayed into a land of unmarried, widowed women, San Francisco stays forever true.
