All my Single Lad-dies

A little while ago in a charity group meeting, a fellow volunteer said "we should help the neediest part of our community: single women."

In my CT tenure, I've amassed an impressive collection of female friends who are (1) certifiably adorable, (2) undeniably successful, (3) smart, (4) fun and (5) single. With this laundry list of winning qualities, it boggles the mind that there are not men catapulting themselves to their front doors.

Sure these ladies have dated, but these so called dates feature leftover wine, the pining newly divorced and guys getting an advanced degree in douchebagery. Reports from the field suggest that the male equivalent of these ladies is an endangered species. I don't want to believe it - but I'll need some evidence. a public service, which rock are you hiding under, datable single men? I have some matchmaking to do...

They're not hiding under a rock, they're hiding on one. It's very large. The locals call it Manhattan.

The vast majority of desirable men living in Stamford are already hitched. It's why we moved out of NYC in the first place.

In fact, everyone calls it Manhattan - but thanks for playing.
