Not if you’re looking for a spouse or the love of your life and you’re over sixteen.
According to this article in the Post-Gazette called Match Game, the only people in Pittsburgh who don’t have trouble dating are under 21 and can be found dancing on tabletops at what used to be called CJ Barneys in Oakland.
Just the fact I don’t know the new name of the bar tells me I’m lucky I’m not on the prowl for a good man at my age.
The article confuses me a little because I know that Allegheny county is the oldest county in the country (sometimes we’re ahead of Dade County FL and sometimes we’re a smidge behind) so isn’t it just a matter of shaking up the dating pool and viewing your prospects as a little more elderly, but alive nonetheless???
If you live in Pittsburgh and end up with a wealthy geezer no one can claim you a gold-digger because you have statistics on your side.Ã‚Â Apparently there’s no one to date in Pittsburgh except for those on the other side of their mid-life crises.
But the article punches holes in that theory too because they cite the plight of a 75 year-old woman who never married and is still on the market.Ã‚Â I know there’s a thirty-year-old somewhere looking to settle down with a mature woman.Ã‚Â So what if it’s way down? She sounds awesome and I mean that.
Don’t get your blue hair all mussed up over this.
I think it’s important for a city to fail in a category or two or everyone will start wishing ill-will upon us and we can’t have that.Ã‚Â We need another super bowl before hordes of people start spitting at their tv’s every time the Steelers pop up.
And if you’re looking to date someone in your own age range then just do what the rest of us have, move away for awhile, get married then strong arm the spouse into returning to the “greatest place to raise childrenÃ‚Â in the world.” That’s just how things work.
