From Atlantic Cities, some thoughts on differences in dating markets across cities.
The point that using the equilibrium number of singles - the result of the intersection of supply and demand - as the sole indicator of market quality is problematic is a good one.
I think the article neglects the role of sex-ratio differences. Particularly in regard to Washington, DC, where educated single women outnumber educated single men, I think this factor is important in explaining how the market works.
It's really quite easy.
