Note: This is all fiercely heteronormative, and I’m sorry about that, but such is the data bestowed by the US Census Bureau.
If you’d like to see a hilarious side effect of this, scroll down to the last image. Very much the opposite of what we found about New York, where the core of Manhattan was primarily single women.
I took a look at Australia, Finland, Switzerland, and the UK, and sure enough, there were plenty of Asian guys waiting to make a connection. There were Filipinos, Taiwanese, Japanese, Cambodian, Thai, Chinese.
Curious, I then searched in various cities - Seattle, Vancouver, Houston, Chicago, Melbourne - to see what came up. Guys from Hong Kong, Laos, Vietnam…It was dizzying.
Additionally, “single” according to the Census means anyone who isn’t married, so even long-term relationships don’t come into the picture at all. It’s singles by age and zip code in the SF Bay Area. And yes, this map doesn’t account for sexuality at all, so there are plenty of men in those blue zones with zero interest in women.
Use the age range sliders to get it to an area that’s meaningful to you, I’ve started it off at 20-34. The only outpost with an excess of single women in San Francisco is Pacific Heights, although if you believed Wikipedia’s list of Notable Residents it’d be 80% male (cough).

So, here’s a quick rundown of things you should know about EME: The sign-up process is relatively painless. There are separate sections for messages, smiles, and visitors, and a little notification badge appears if you’ve received any of these.SF’s Chinatown, which the racial dot map and Wikipedia point to as to the upper right of the word “San Francisco,” is actually far more gender-neutral than similar immigrant communities we found in NYC. Right over the bay, Oakland mixes it up a bit while Berkeley is a nice little gender melting pot.Again, race might play an issue here – last time we found that African-American communities seemed to have a higher percentage of single women, and the splits might be helped along by racial divides (Oakland [female] is more black, while Alameda [male] is more white/Asian). Sunnyvale, San Jose and Mountain View come up about even between single men and single women, while San Mateo is piles upon piles of single men and Fremont looks as blue as a perfect day at the seashore.
