Memphis Needs More Single Men ... Or Fewer Women

Posted By on Sat, Apr 5, 2008 at 4:00 AM

Well, Memphis single gals, there's good news and there's bad news. The good news is: It's not you. The bad news is: It's not you.

According to a nifty chart from urbanologist Richard Florida, the Memphis metropolitan area has a surplus of single women. A surplus of 20,000 single women.

Illustrated by little red and blue balls, ahem, the singles map of the United States shows women skewing toward the East Coast and men skewing toward the West. (Guess lots of men took Horace Greeley's advice.) In New York and northern New Jersey, there are more than 210,000 more single women than men. In the L.A. and Long Beach area, 89,000 more single men than women.

Florida has a new book out entitled, Who's Your City?, that argues that where you live is one of the most important decisions you'll make in your entire life. Well, duh.
