If it is polygamy for New York, what about polyandry for San Jose?

Being single and not 19 anymore, everyone assumes that I am desperately seeking matrimony. One of my very good friends who believe that it is impossible to find decent men in Pakistan and has been urging me for soooo long to pack my bags and move to North America (She alternates her time between Vancouver and Seattle and has been trying to sell to me the virtues of living in a city where it rains 360 days a year). She just sent me this article that actually has top 5 cities in US where women can find young, healthy and straight men. She actually believed that a lazy being like me, who has so far not budged, despite wanting to live in a more civilized, more tolerant and women friendly society would actually consider moving across the world to look for men!!!!!

They actually crunched some numbers on seven categories that have a bearing on how great a city might be for finding guys. They are: ratios of single men to single women and of gay to straight; divorce rates; fitness; philanthropy; education; and the thrill factor places where guys and girls do the kind of fun stuff that makes hearts race and bonds form.

The city that came on top was … San Jose, California. Apparently, the city has the greatest concentration of single, intelligent, physically fit men who love high-adrenaline activities. The article said that “San Jose is the heart of Silicon Valley, and technology is notoriously male-dominated. There are literally throngs of guys in striped shirts and khakis on every street corner.” So all the women who want khakis clad me with well paid jobs, head to San Jose. On the contrary, my only friend who has lived in San Jose for two and half years think the city is full of weird people and has recently moved to San Francisco. The other top five cities are Salt Lake City, Arlington (Texas), Raleigh (North Carolina), and last but not the San Francisco, which according to the article has surprising number of straight single men.

Dr Zakir Naik (of QTV) was the first person I thought of after reading this. Remember, he said that there are 300,000 more women in New York than man and there is a sizeable gay population, hence those men who can afford it should all take another wife to save the 300,000 New York girls from impending spinsterhood. Would he recommend polyandry for San Jose or Alaska or North Scotland and our own Malakand Division where men outnumber women by great numbers?

I for one am too lazy to move out of my extremely polluted comfort zone (Karachi) but those of you who are brave and active enough to relocate, San Jose is waiting for you.

  • lol

  • hyuk hyuk. :)Listen, no matter where you are, its hard to enjoy life. Even if you find a fun and interesteing man, life makes sure that a fuck up is not far along the way. I think its more worthwhile to enjoy yourself wherever you are and whoever you are with everyday then look for any fixes outside.. Am struggling here in New York with the isolation of academic work and the heart of the beast beating everywhere around me, yes, new york, any advise for me??

  • LOL….. nice…….
    Speaking of Zakir naik…. guy is gone case and ppl buy his BS.. check the following link

  • I live in Palo Alto(b/w San Jose and San Francisco) and often visit both cities(SJ 10 miles and SF 30 miles from my home). And I am in Vancouver for last 4 months and I can tell you that Vancouver is much better city with nice people but I miss the rapid life of Silicon Valley. Here in couver city, every one takes its time so it’s at quiet slower end.

Got anything to say? Go ahead and leave a comment!
