If you’re a straight male looking for love in Washington, DC, you’re in the right place. The stretch of Connecticut Avenue running through Zip code 20008 has the highest ratio of single women to single men in the greater DC area, according to Trulia.com. The real estate site bases this finding on data from the 2010 Census. Trulia counted the number of households where men and women live alone, and in the DC metro area, found the ratio of women to men greatest in this part of Forest Hills.
If you’re a single woman looking for love, Trulia suggests heading to Rosslyn. That had the highest ratio of men to women.
Trulia says the neighborhoods with the highest ratio of women to men tend to be residential and “more upscale (and safe).” The men, it says, are more attracted to job centers. But women who live alone outnumber the men throughout the DC region, which has the highest ratio of women to men in the 100 largest U.S. metro areas.
And if you are looking for a same-sex partner, Trulia covered that last June, during Gay Pride Month: “In Washington DC… central Logan Circle and Dupont Circle have the highest concentration of male couples, whereas women cluster in suburban Takoma Park, MD, and parts of Alexandria, VA.”
