Top 29 Cities for Men to Live in

A little diversionary post from me - AskMen.com, with apparently more than seven million readers a month worldwide, today announced the inaugural edition of its "Top 29 Cities for Men to Live In." Selection criteria for the top cities included, among other factors, the rate of employment, ratio of single women to men, frequency of cultural activities and sporting events and the cost of a pint of beer.

They used seven unique rating categories including: Dating & Sex, Sports & Entertainment, Culture, Fashion, Health, Power & Money and The Good Life. Cities earned points and elevated their rank on the list through an evaluation process that assessed several influential features, such as: the population of single, college-educated women, how late bars/clubs stay open, the presence of a reputable menswear-only store,  the rate of male heart disease, the cost of living and the occurrence of an annual international arts festival.

Does this mean that all us single girls should move to Edinburgh because there is a better ratio of single men to women ...and at least the pubs will throw your future boyfriend out a little bit earlier?! ;o)

Ha! We're five on the list. Must be for the beer! Can't speak for Chicago since I've never been there but I know a few men who love it!

Been threatening a visit to Chicago for a while now, but how in the name of all that's holy did a jocko city get on the list?

@ Gwynaeth: LOL - reverse physchology - very smart!

@ Baino: I've been in Chicago twice but no idea why it's numero uno?

@ Xbox: worth a visit but yeah beats me too

Went to Chicago last year and loved it, but I wasn't looking at it as a man's city so no comment on that. In any case their criteria would be rather different from mine as a totally untypical male. Beer and sport? No thanks.

No sign of Belfast I see. Quite a good city for the average bloke, I would have thought.

Why 29? it seems somewhat random, no?

This is interesting and useful way to rank the cities. My city is unfortunately at the bottom of the list, but what to expect from the state in transition. I hope the situation will be better soon.

I thought the no.1 should be San Francisco. Haha, It's No.2.

Quickroute April 02, 2009 12:27 pm  

@ Nick: Yeah I guess the votes are a bit skewed in favour of US experiences

@ conortje: It's a magical number which has little or no significance

@ Merry: Welcome - I disagree with Edinburgh being bottom of the list but at least it made the list

@ iWalk: San Fran - no shortage of men there for sure ;-)

I never would have guessed Chicago in a million years.

I'm not single but I think Kraków has been very hard done by for not even getting a mention.

Particularly wondrous in the first warm glows of spring.

Quickroute April 04, 2009 12:16 pm  

@ Megan: Me Neither - strange choice

@ Shaunj: There are a lot of cities missing in my book - ah eastern europe in the spring!
