I live across the river from Ohio and I was in Columbus last week. I did see signs of a declining economy there, which is surprising because Columbus always has a strong economy. The city is home to national headquarters like Nationwide, CompuServ, Express-Limited, Wendy's, State Farm, Bob Evans, Abercrombie & Fitch and a few banks.
Ohio has a lot of good looking guys because it is the center of the region and a lot of people move there. People aren't moving to Detroit, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh or Louisville the way that they move to Columbus, Cincinatti or Cleveland. The ratio is just that much better, I believe.
