We understand that many of the clients of our professional dating service are busy.
Many people who are single and live alone, furthermore, are dating someone seriously at any given time -- about half, according to most surveys. A single, heterosexual, 27-year-old white man with a bachelor's degree who wants to date a single, white, college-educated woman between 25 and 29 would actually have only about 7,000 choices in D. -- about the same number he would find on the campus of a big public university in a flyover state.
But, when I was looking, the numbers weren't very much in my favor.
Of course, it doesn't seem this way at first blush. In the city proper, furthermore, 52 percent of people aren't single and childless.
This city is turning decidedly younger, which, if you happen to be a young person, or an older person looking to creep on younger people, is great!
But, DC also has a reputation for being one of the most transient places in the country. It’s holding on to him or her that’s the challenge. This is not "the one" and you should not take this person home to Mom.
