Slim Pickins

There’s an article in the paper today reporting on what most people around here consider old news. It has finally been confirmed that Bakersfield is the worst possible place you can live if you are single. The only place that’s worse, according to a study performed by AXE deodorant, is Birmingham, Alabama. Funny thing is, Seattle is supossed to be the best place to meet singles. I asked my single friend that lives there if she agreed and she told me, "Sure! If you're gay."

The study doesn’t sound all too scientific, but that’ really beside the point. The thing that bothers me most about it is the target audience of the study was 18 – 24 year olds. WHATEVER! I can guarantee you I wouldn’t have any trouble finding a date if I was 18 – 24 years old. Try being 30 something and single. I’m pretty sure there are about two eligible bachelors in town and they went into hiding years ago. Okay, I’m exaggerating a little - there are a few more than that. The trouble is all the single thirty something men in town, turds that they are, only want to date younger, twenty something women. I was on a date recently with a man my age and he agreed with me! Of course, the fact that we have 6,000 more single women than we do men doesn't help.

Jim Harreer, co-founder of MyCountryMatch.com, a hot online dating service in town, acknowledged that it’s really the older crowd that have the most trouble meeting people in town. According to Harrer, his customers, “are older, they love animals, they’re faith believing, and they love NASCAR. That’s Bakersfield.”

I guess that explains why I can’t find a decent date.
