Madison, Wisconsin is the best city for men... and Plano, Texas is the best for women.

I know.... What the hell?

Maybe Madison has plenty of frisky co-eds and Plano has plenty of cowboys? Makes sense to me. Plus it explains why Titus hates Madison.

That explains Meade's attraction to this fair city?

Big Mike said...

Don't worry, Professor. We're all absolutely certain that Meade married you because he loves you, and not just that it gave him an excuse to move to Madison.

(I am right, aren't I, Meade?)

Texas also sounds like a great state for single guys .There are a lot of desparate women out there.

Plano has few cowboys, but it is full of fabulously rich Dallas yuppies.

When I think of Plano, I think of tackle boxes.

Mmmm. Tackle boxes.

Youngblood said...

I love the logic:

"Madison won out in part because of its high proportion of doctors, and Plano, with its 139 single guys per every 100 unattached women, helped earn the best for women title."

Lucien said...

Yet Fargo, San Jose and Plano were in the top five for both genders.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!
What do those three cities have in common?

WV: "bledd" -- More than bled but less than bleed?

Gene said...

I agree Lucian. Plano Texas is the best place for single women according to the survey because it has 139 single men for every 100 single women. Yet Plano is also third best for men. But why, if there are so few women? Is there a large gay community in Plano? Lots of construction jobs? Lots of good used F-100 pickup trucks. Something in the water that soothes the prostate?

AST said...

It seems I heard that Madison's water was high in nitrates.

Titus said...

I committed to be a year here with my family for "personal" reasons.

I have 4 months under my belt.

8 months to go, with time in India between.

After that I am out of here.

I feel sorry for the women of Madison if the men I have seen are all they have to choose from. I am never horny here and I would walk down the street in Cambridge or Somerville and have to run home to jerky jerky. Here I can hardly get an erection.

The weather is the worst.

I work in Biotech too and evil Mass. rules that domain. Think really high paying jobs and really educated people.

Titus said...

No colored peeps in the gyms either. And the guys are so gross.

In a gym? Hello? They have to be hot in a gym.

Beth said...

Plano has lots and lots of shopping.

peter hoh said...

Oh, my. I really am an idiot. (As if any of you needed proof.)

The Plano in Plano Molding is Plano, Illinois.

Oh, well. I guess I'll change my plans to drive south on 35.

edutcher said...

Isn't Plano near Fort Hood? That would explain good for women.

I agree with the guy in the article complaining about Philadelphia's rating. Even The Blonde said she liked it there when she visited - she just couldn't get past the year-round humidity (the occasional ice storms blew her mind). Of course, it could be the Street brothers ruined the place. That would not surprise me.

Madison

Cold Weather

Erect nipples

#1

WV: apoki - need I say more- nudge, nudge

Bob_R said...

All covered up with thermal underwear.

Sigh!

Titus said...

Bob, you can't see the erect nipples because they are covered in 10 layers of clothes.

There seems to be quite a few seniors here, not that there is anything wrong with that.

Freeman Hunt said...

Didn't we recently discuss something about women civilizing men? Plano must look like Mad Max. How is that the best city for us?

(In part two the one person kept on a leash by a villain is a man, not a woman, so I guess we'd have that going for us.)

Titus said...

I can deal with 25-30 degrees weather. But a week of 5 at night, sorry, no.

somefeller said...

Isn't Plano near Fort Hood? That would explain good for women.

Not even close. Plano is north of Dallas, and Fort Hood is closer to Austin. Texas geography fail.

Plano has few cowboys, but it is full of fabulously rich Dallas yuppies.

It's true there aren't many cowboys in Plano and there is a whole lot of money there. But the fabulously rich Dallas yuppies still tend to live closer in, like in Preston Hollow or Highland Park.

And no, this survey doesn't make much sense to me either.

Freeman Hunt said...

Single does not necessarily equal date-able.

Continuing with the theme, every (or nearly every) man in Mad Max was single, yet none were date-able.

And most women don't like cars that much.

The helicopter was pretty neat though. Maybe some girl would be a good match with the helicopter guy.

Freeman Hunt said...

Bartertown was almost entirely made up of single men, except for the mayor. Would a woman like it there? I think not.

And you'll never starve in Madison.

Donna B. said...

It's less than 200 miles from Plano to Ft. Hood. By Texas standards, that's downright neighborly.

jr565 - don't bother traveling to Texas because the women there are simply not that "desparate".

ricpic said...

From the article: It doesn't mean there's not a lot to love about the worst cities.

Keep searching, Diogenes.

Beth said...

Freeman, I don't know about Mad Max. More Neiman Marcus. And Sacks 5th Avenue. And lots and lots of little boutiques. And so expensive you shouldn't even think about entering furnishings stores. And miles and miles of little malls. They're building more right now. And lots of gated developments. There is beaucoup money in Plano.

Beth said...

Condomania did a breakdown of condom sizes sold, and determined that New Orleans is home to the most well-endowed men in the country. I'm not sure how that correlates with this study, but you'd think it would mean something.

Ilona said...

Except it wasn't a helicopter.. it was a gyrocopter.. great movie.

My opinion is that Madison stinks for women because it is a liberal city, and Plano is good for women because it is very conservative. I don't think I need to detail out why.

Ralph L said...

home to the most well-endowed men
Or more horny but careful women with HUGE vaginas.

Kev said...

Hmm...Plano is #1 for women and #3 for men. Part of my job is in Plano, which obviously means it's time to do more socializing closer to work...

Tregonsee said...

Charleston, VW is listed as in the 10 worst for both men and women. Having been there a few times, I would not disagree with that.

Clyde said...

Fargo, ND, is #2 on both lists? Who put these lists out, The Onion? Seriously, someone, somewhere is laughing their ass off that the rubes bought this.

Herb said...

Plano is a suburb of Dallas, what's up with Philly worst for women and 2nd worst for men. What a dreary place that must be.

traditionalguy said...

Madison and Plano will settle this in Pasadena.Plano is full of educated cowboys (TCU graduates are from 15 miles away). So it is a great single man's place, as long as the man has his F-150, King Ranch edition and his labrador retriever.Go you masculine Horned Frogs of Plano and beat those girlie Badgers of Madison in this year's War of the Roses.

Youngblood said...

"Bartertown was almost entirely made up of single men, except for the mayor. Would a woman like it there? I think not."

Auntie Entity liked it there just fine, thankyouverymuch.

Plus, they had a solution for the excess male population:

"Two men enter, one man leaves!"

Actually they were using the condoms as masks when they rob liguor stores so that doesn't mean what you think it means. Just sayn'

Wow--so much Texas geography FAIL in this thread, LOL. As you can see from this map, it's a lot farther than 15 miles from the northern end of the TCU campus to the busiest commercial intersection in Plano. (But thanks for playing, and enjoy the home version of our game as a lovely parting gift.)
