Also, what do you mean by interest fading - is this your interest or your date's?
Oh, I should clarify that they do not want a second date. Some have been honest and told me that someone else caught their eye, and I respect that and wish them well! just straight silence after a first, second or third date.
It's what they truly love and came here to do, so be ready to have them let loose about it.
I suspect that, in most other places, single actively dating women in their mid-30s and older are overwhelmingly either divorced or widowed.
Here, the number of never-marrieds is probably much higher.
Honestly, it got old fast and I met someone who was as close to perfect for me much faster than I expected and married her a year later.
The flip side of this is that it's that age bracket that skews the numbers, the idea that you can make a blanket statement about "DC is great for single straight men" comes from lumping everyone 21-50 into a demographic figure. I'm hoping that by going to a few meetups and group activities, I meet people who have also just moved here and plan to stay a bit. Yes when you break it down by age, education, and sexuality, though."The gap is even more extreme in certain places.
However, that assessment includes parts of SE DC and PG County, where there is a surplus of women sadly because many young men in those areas are incarcerated or dead The blanket statement of DC being a straight man's paradise only works if you're lumping a lot of different age groups together.
