We're 37th! We're 37th!...Wha???

When it comes to "romantic cities for boomers" (do they mean as in "Baby Boomers," or as in "Esiason?"), San Francisco is thirty-seventh.


Rochester came in eighth...over San Francisco. Because let's face it, thousands of people are flying into "Rochester, City of Love." To be fair, nothing says romance like freezing your ass off six months a year, that'll make you cozy up to some of the least compatible availables around.

...hello, survey takers? Please...put the crack pipes down just long enough to do some actual research.

Hmmm, note that a certain male "enhancement" product sponsored this study. You wouldn't need that in San Francisco. A bowl of curry for your circulation, a quick walk around town to see the beautiful women from all over the world and if you still need one of those pills? You are most likely, clinically dead.

Who came in first you ask? Why Pittsburgh, of course! It's Becka-tastic!

Funny, yet Pittsburgh always came in dead last in those "Best Cities for Singles" surveys. Part of the reason I left!

Although I always do say that the 'Burgh is a great town to settle down in. I'm not sure how romantic it is, but that's probably because there were never any single guys around to take me out on romantic dates!

I'm surprised that NY is so high on the list! Just the other day I watched a homeless man throw a huge cup of his bodily fluid into the street not more than 10 feet away from me.

I just read a Pittsburgh Live article from 2005 that claimed Forbes Magazine ranked the 'Burgh at the very bottom for singles three years in a row.

Just go back home and tell them you are a "New York Gal," ups the exotic quotient.


Nothing gets the ladies all hot and bothered like a cup of...

I can't go on with this bit...

It reads a lot like my Top Ten List of Places to Stay the Hell Away From.

HUH? San Francisco should be first for U.S. cities. Who made this list — bitter, recently dumped men and women?

On the ground, I've never been twelve blocks north of Central Park, so I have to trust what everyone tells me about Upstate New York. The consensus over the years is that outside of Niagara Falls and the changing of the leaves in Fall, there ain't a whole lot there, right?


It just struck me that the majority of those places where not to be avoided like the plague, but simply a case of "I'd have to be visiting someone or I'd never go there in a million years."


While not sniping Pittsburgh because hills and riverfront views are romantic, how does San Francisco rank so low??? Was the survey taker a crack-addled Quasimodo who had their sense of romance removed with their tonsils?
