San francisco dating scene straight women

22 Dec

Our poll published last week found that half (53%) of never-married Americans would like to eventually tie the knot.

And among never-married women interested in marriage, 78% said that it is “very important” to them that a potential spouse has a steady job (only 46% of never-married men said the same).

Dating as an institution is a relatively recent phenomenon which has mainly emerged in the last few centuries.

From the standpoint of anthropology and sociology, dating is linked with other institutions such as marriage and the family which have also been changing rapidly and which have been subject to many forces, including advances in technology and medicine.

A new Pew Research Center analysis finds pronounced differences in the ratio between men and women living in the largest U. metro areas, especially when it comes to singles who have an attractive characteristic: a job.

Dating is a stage of romantic or sexual relationships in humans whereby two or more people meet socially, possibly as friends or with the aim of each assessing the other's suitability as a prospective partner in a more committed intimate relationship or marriage.

It can be a form of courtship that consists of social activities done by the couple.

(We count both young adults who have never been married and those who have been previously married as single or unmarried.) So, which large metro areas have the best “marriage market”?

For women seeking a male partner with a job, our analysis found that San Jose, Calif., tops the list among large metro areas, with 114 single employed men for every 100 single women.
