Am I being unrealistic in expecting to find that here? By decent I mean physically attractive, educated, a good personality and treats people with respect and carries himself well.
This city is turning decidedly younger, which, if you happen to be a young person, or an older person looking to creep on younger people, is great!
But, DC also has a reputation for being one of the most transient places in the country. It’s holding on to him or her that’s the challenge. This is not "the one" and you should not take this person home to Mom.

C.'s dating scene is full of people who have exceptional resumes. is actually a very small town particularly when it comes to dating.
And she's also right that this doesn't always lead to easy love connections. I'm married and have been off the dating scene for nearly a decade now myself. They're in relationships and I'm a girl so obviously I haven't dated them, but if I was gay, I'd be interested lol. Well no one's perfect, but I know a few gay guys who would meet that criteria pretty well.Of this number, about 75,000 are currently enrolled college students who will tend to date within their own campuses. Extrapolating from national numbers, about 30 percent of this group is over forty, leaving about 136,000 people who could be considered "young." Social circles are built in such a way that few people with college degrees will even meet (much less be interested in dating) people who don't have them. attracts more women than men, however, so only about 47 percent of these people are male, which leaves about 42,000 people for a young, childless, heterosexual, single college woman to date.While degree attainment is higher for young, single people than the population as a whole, it's probably not above than 70 percent even in D. This would, very generously, leave about 90,000 college graduates between 21 and 40 in the District of Columbia. A fair number people will prefer to date someone of the same ethnic/racial background and more will consider religion an absolute deal-breaker.According to a recent survey, men spend about 7 on a first date in DC, but why? But you're likely not in the state to be concerned with such things right now, so in the short term, go for it! One of the more notorious such bands in town, White Ford Bronco, also happens to have a dedicated following among the 20-something set.
