SF Is For Singles? How Accurate Is This?

San Francisco is consistently ranked one of the best places for singles. Forbes actually made it #2 on their annual "Best Cities For Singles." Areas examined: "number of singles, nightlife, culture, cost of living alone, job growth, online dating activity and coolness."

Chart from the Forbes article
Singles 1
Nightlife 12
Coolness 3
Culture 4
Job Growth 24
Online Dating 13
Cost Of Living Alone 39

San Francisco ranks 1 for the number of single people. Is this really a good thing? Is everyone single because there aren't good ways to meet other singles, therefore people stay single and don't get into relationships? Or is it because a the majority of people here are undesirable?

What I have seen
As a single girl, I find SF dating to be quite difficult. There are definitely a lot of guys, but many of them are p*ssies or d**chebags (for lack of better descriptors). The odds are good, but the goods are odd (for those of you who might not get this...quantity is good, but quality is bad).

I have yet to meet a male or female SF resident who agrees with SF being a great scene for singles. The guys complain that there are not enough girls (which seems to be true since guys outnumber girls about 4:1 at every bar I have ever been to).

SF has great weather, public transportation, greenery, scenic views, etc...but a singles scene?
