Either I need to move to the east coast right away, or I need to realize that the reason most girls on the west coast aren't single is because they are much more attractive by course of ratio.

it's because women on the east coast are more educated and therfore more homely. the west coast encourages suntans and hard little bodies. only the best of the best need apply. it's simple climate economics really.

If you're counting NY-NJ-CT metro area as once location then 195k extra single women is nothing.

40k extra single men in the LA area is also almost insignificant.

And the figure in SF is obviously misleading.

that's not what the graphic says. It only says that Phoenix has at last 20,000 more single men than women. They still probably have more single women than Tucson if the city is significantly larger.

It's a piss poor statistic actually.

It's not a ratio. It's simply a count of how many more single men there are than women. In a city of millions it's a very small ratio.

Plus I'll bet LA has a ton of technically non-single women that aren't necessarily attached.

Jack, I don't need your facts to know you're full of shit. You know why? Because I listen to my gut. Did you know that your gut has more nerve endings in it than your head? Now, I know what you're going to say..."I looked that up and you're wrong." That's because you looked it up in a book. Next time try looking it up in your gut.

Troof. It never ceases to amaze me the stank off some folks downtown (not the homeless either)

Still, showering 7 - 10 times a week never gets me any so maybe I'm the one who is missing the point.

Being single in LA sucks, my last "girlfriend" was almost eleven years ago. I am still trying to get over that FIDM girl the last few months who broke my heart. Even the women on Myspace seem mostly fake, so many are just advertisements or spammers, who is the real deal anymore?

Being single really sucks. Yeah, you can do whatever you want, but it cannot replace the feeling of love and being in love with the right person. I had my heart broken this year, and it is the worst feeling. It sucks so hard, I really put my heart into it. She was an amazing artist and was cute too, had awesome taste in music. Ending whatever we had was her choice, not mine. However, I am trying to move on and to make her realize that in the long term, losing me is her loss.

Tom Leykis is a smart guy about some things. That happens to be one of them. He's an asshole about other stuff. Don't buy women drinks right away though. If you're on a date that is one thing, but not when you don't even know them at the bar. Your conversation should be your in.

kroqken
11-21-2008, 05:51 AM
I always try to conversate with the ladies. It is just that Leykis seems so offputting in his advice. It seems to stem from almost a hatred toward women. Maybe it is just an act. He seems too intelligent a guy to have to resort to mysogany.

I think Leykis is exaggerating the overall points of not totally kissing a woman's ass to get her attention, never losing who you are, and having confidence. Traits that women ultimately find sexy. The way he delivers the message is an act, but there's a lot of truth to what he's actually saying.

kroqken
11-21-2008, 05:57 AM
I know Leykis means well for his (mostly) male audience. However, he has had four failed marriages. He should have learned after the first or second marriage failed on his ass.

Haha very true, he has been divorced a few times. I think his advice may speak more to getting a woman's attention and getting laid. Relationships are entirely different beasts. And his marriages may have "failed" because he wasn't willing to compromise who he was. In which case I wouldn't necessarily call them failures.

kroqken
11-21-2008, 06:09 AM
He should have known what the woman was like going into the marriage. It would have saved him a lot of misery and a lot of his earlier net worth. It is often easier to just live together than to get married.

I agree with you for the most part. It's just so hard to think straight when you're in a relationship. I know I've had 2 serious relationships that I was kinda emo with after they ended. Now I realize I dodged a couple of serious bullets. I was just caught up in everything.....the heat of the moment I guess. And sometimes women just straight up lie and misrepresent themselves. Hell, I'm sure men do it to.

kroqken
11-21-2008, 06:17 AM
I last dated a girl I got emo with, but she had a terrible temper and I had to walk on eggshells around her. Losing her hurts, but I think I learned a lot just from the time that I did spend with her.

Don't feel bad for Ken.

He now spends 7 days a week with Stephanie, the girl who stole his tapes all those years ago. She still takes all of his money and feeds her fat face with it.

In fact, Ken still owes me $660 from the $1250 I loaned him (to pay his rent) back in July, and thousands of dollars have ended up in that pig's gullet instead of my pocket.

Ken also fails to mention that the girl who "broke his heart" (Colleen) was blatantly using him, made no secret of that fact, and he didn't care because she spread her legs for him every so often.

Ken actually slept on the bus for weeks at a time because he was "afraid" to sleep in his own apartment while she was there, even though she paid zero rent.

She also stiffed Ken for a $300 in phone bills, and is sending him nothing despite having a decent job at the moment and lots of financial aid $.

It's such a shame she moved away.

11-21-2008, 08:55 AM
She is an angel, I wish I could talk to her. I think my former friend Erik still has some of her paintings and he better return them to her if she visits for Thanksgiving. It is not cool to hold onto her stuff. I will pay Archie what I owe him when I am done being a human guinea pig. In fact, that is why I am here.

Ken actually still wants to see Colleen and still says nice things about her after she called the police and said he raped her. 7 cops came to his apartment and he was in handcuffs. A bunch of his neighbors saw him and he should have been humiliated but he wasn't. He almost spent the weekend in jail. She also used to kick him out of his apartment late at night not caring that he had no where to go. He used to sleep in the bathroom at the Sherman Oaks Galleria or sleep on the bus. She also used to scream at him, hit him and treat him horrible. But he still wants to see her. He almost lost his apartment numerous times because of her. He still thinks she's a great girl after all of this. Ken has no pride . All the people in his life who use and abuse him he always goes back for more.
