Trulia: Rosslyn Is Chock Full of Men

Singles map via Trulia (red represents areas with more single women than men, blue represents more men than women)(Updated at 10:10 a.m.) Arlington’s Rosslyn neighborhood is the best place to look for single men in the D.C. area, according to the real estate website Trulia.

For a blog post called Looking for Love in All the Right Places, Trulia looked at single adults below the age of 65 in some major metropolitan areas, including D.C. The company found that “downtown” employment centers — like Rosslyn — typically have more single men than women, while “uptown” residential areas have a higher ratio of women to men.

Rosslyn was recognized as the highest men-to-women ratio in a ZIP code (22209) with at least 1,000 population and 20 percent population alone. Similarly, Upper Connecticut Avenue in D.C. took the honor of the highest women-to-men ratio.

While Rosslyn took the regional title, the Crystal City/Pentagon City area also looked like fertile ground, with more single men than women. Parts of southwestern Arlington — including Shirlington and Fairlington — had the county’s highest ratio of single women to men. The Clarendon, Courthouse and Ballston area collectively had a slightly higher ration of women to men.

    If you are looking for rich, elderly ladies, probably widows, NW DC is the place to go.

      I have two friends in Rosslyn, both single guys, so the story may be accurate on that score. Then again, they are both gay, so… 🙂

    FYI, most single chicks in Fairlington have a dog.

    Quantity, not quality.

    Considering what the Iwo Jima memorial is famous for late at night, women might want to look elsewhere.

    • Not Me

    They must be counting the homeless men at Rosslyn metro.

    Maybe there’s a reason they are all single.

    Here’s the thing, though – men and women don’t stay at home waiting for each other. They go out. And they often venture beyond their own neighborhoods.

    Why don’t these single chicks in Fairlington ever go to the pool? I mean, we have the Baltic lifeguards to look at every year, but we need more eye candy. BTW, wear something skimpy this pool season, gals.

    • Lat Veen

      Those Fairlington girls are heading to the pools in North Arlington to ogle the Serbian lifeguards.

  • Dick Longfellow

    I’m thinking that most of these Metrosexual guys are gay and yo women don’t have the correct anatomy, so keep movin’!
