Why are there so few females moving to the West Coast, at least compared to males. There are many stable, middle class jobs here. And, just as importantly, many single, stable yuppie males with those jobs as well. The sorts of jobs that provide ample time and money to raise a family. But there aren’t many females. And it’s easy to see there’s a mismatch–just look at any listing of “Best Cities to be a Single Female”.
(By contrast, there are horror stories about dating–from the female perspective–in the Washington D.C. area. There are too many professional, well-educated single females there relative to the professional well-educated single males.)
As a wild over generalization do females value relationships more than career opportunities to the point that they are less willing to move to far off lands–abandoning all their existing relationships–just to go hunting for the “right” career or marriage partner? Or is this symptomatic of fewer professional career opportunities for women in general?
