Not only does he provide qualitative evidence of his dating misfortunes, he blesses readers with a slick graph of the growing gap between the number of males and females living in Seattle.
Although Jeff’s explicit argument is for Amazon to focus more on gender equality, his implicit argument blames the disparate gender ratio as the reason for the lack of dating success for men.

Hello, I'm a single black male moving to Seattle Saturday.
Jeff’s argument is bullshit for two reasons: At this point, I must acknowledge Jeff’s effort at analyzing the huge gray area of gender inequality, gender ratios, and gender roles.
One paragraph (out of his 15 paragraph article) seems to discuss these issues: Culturally, men tend to be more aggressive pursuers, which can magnify the impact of a gender imbalance.
They also said there was no shortage of large, white women in those areas that are looking specifically for black men.
I want to start and change the conversation surrounding these gender issues, not displace blame to entities and institutions we have no control over.Most were interested in getting back to the south (Tennessee/Alabama) to meet black women.They had mentioned a few times that Bremerton/Tacoma/Seattle/Everett were basically the only areas they could find black women and that choices were kind of limited.Please register to participate in our discussions with 2 million other members - it's free and quick!Some forums can only be seen by registered members.I can speak on this both personally and from what I hear from others).So once you find some spots (usually downtown and south of downtown) where you can meet them, they'll love the attention.I'll be working a contract job for the next year, and will be staying in Bellevue and working in Bothell.Anyway I've checked the demographics in the Seattle area , and the black population is very low.The issue of male entitlement has been buzzing around my head ever since I read Geek Wire’s male entitlement martyr argue about gender ratios the past November.In a nutshell, he argues that the dating scene has become increasingly difficult, especially for men, due to Amazon’s male-centric hiring practices.
