Women outnumber men in NYC 1.07 to 1, making the dating scene in this town a horrid crocodile swamp of depraved treachery and self-loathing, at least from a single lady's point of view. Or maybe the problem is just that men are pigs—census data also showsthat single never-married men between the ages of 20-34 actually outnumber single women by 742,400 to 729,500. Whatever the odds, there is STILL TIME to meet someonespecialadequateavailableout on parolein time for Valentine's Day, and this handy map is here to help mingling singles of both genders find someone unattached with a pulse.

Real estate websiteTrulia looked at the ratioof men living alone to women living alone across NYC, subtracting estimates of the gay and lesbian population in order to come up with this map that focuses on "men and women interested in dating someone of the opposite sex." (For homosexual singles, Trulia points to their "Welcome to the Gayborhood" post.) So if you're a single bro looking to share your emotional unavailability with thewoo-girlof your dreams, try stealing a dog and walking it around on the Upper West or Upper East Sides. And if you're an uptown single lady tired of drinking boxed wine alone in the studio apartment your parents bought for you, take a cab down to Lower Manhattan or—if you'readventurous—become a regular atDutch Killsin Long Island City, the neighborhood with the highest ratio of single men to women. (Exceptduring Warm Up.)
