    I know guys in small towns and big cities (Chicago, LA, NYC, SF) who both complain about the dating scene. There are no guys in small towns and there are too many in the big city. Why is it so hard in big cities? Hundreds of thousands of men but guys still have trouble dating and becoming monogamous? Where is the middle? Or do places just differ? OR is it all the same everywhere regardless of region and size?

    That's easy. If this person lives more than 15 minutes away in traffic, it requires effort. Dating is supposed to be effortless, right? Quantity has nothing to do with it if men nearby won't leave the internet alone.

    Seattle, gay friendly town full of unfriendly gays. Un-hookupable if he has to pay bridge tolls, $12 parking, or sit motionless on I-5 longer than 3 minutes to meet you. I felt like an outsider as my tech job was always 20 miles away from Capital Hill (where there was always a craigslist meeting within walking distance.)

    Los Angeles. In their defense, it can take two to three hours to drive from Los Angeles to Palm Springs. Guess where my job is? Halfway between them.

    I don't think I can give "Enron by the Sea" a fair shake after they forced their mayor to resign just last week, so I'm going to leave that one alone. Los Angeles gays are a whole lot easier to talk to than San Diego. Only variable is I worked for a major employer there and didn't want to stumble on a coworker while making out with someone else.

    yes it is the same every where. however, in the small town you are less likely to meet many gay guys so the number is smaller

    With big cities, you have more men, more things to do and places to meet, etc.
