Meg Ryan’s Manhattan

Something to ponder when you make your post-graduation plans: A new chart that maps out the male-female ratio for singles in U.S. cities.

The odds are good for West Coast girls setting their sights on the next Bill Gates. Single men outnumber single women by the tens of thousands In Los Angeles, San Diego, Dallas, Phoenix and San Francisco. But in New York, there are 210,000 more single women than single men.

Apparently there’s a preponderance of young women seeking to star in their own Meg Ryan fancies. As usual, Sex and the City pinpoints the problem (from the movie trailer: “Why’d you move to New York?” “To fall in love.”) and offers solace:

Anyone who’s single in Manhattan gets a little freaked out from time to time. But we keep trying because you have to figure, if the world’s fattest twins can find love there’s hope for all of us. Somewhere out there is another little freak who will love us, understand us, and kiss our three heads and make it all better. And in the meantime, we always have Manhattan.

  1. It makes that hopeful more from Phoenix to St. Louis all the more desirable…

  2. Apparently the excess of women in Manhattan doesn’t help this bitter Jewish man:

    It’s one of the most hysterical blogs I’ve ever read. I love how he’s so baffled as to why he has so little luck dating.

  3. and manhattans? and cosmos? and chocolate martinis?

  4. ughh! I felt a distinct lack of you’ve-got-mail-ness during my fall visit to the big apple, and it was most disconcerting.

    On a completely unrelated topic, I think Meg Ryan is your Hollywood looks idol because you look like her. Scarlett is Emay’s. I think mine might be Katherine Heigl, but I’m not sure. I think her goody-girl appearance in the Janette Oke “Love Comes Softly” video series balances out her loose morals on Gray’s.
