Where the Boys Are...

Arlington, Texas, apparently

Looking for a man to dance cheek to cheek with on Arlington MenArlington Menyour next vacation? Pack your bags and head to Arlington, Texas, where it's raining men, according to Men's Health Magazine.

Their criteria:

  • Education level: The University of Texas and Tarrant County College are both here, which means well-educated profs and teachers and brainy students.
  • Income level: Higher than the national average.
  • Low divorce rates: Brains and money add up to loyalty in Arlington.
  • Adrenalin junkie heaven: The 15 roller-coasters at Six Flags apparently help guys feed their addictions without risking their lives.
  • Ratio: There are simply more guys here than girls who want them.
  • Arlington MenArlington MenWhen Oprah rated Arlington, it came in 3rd (for single men over 35) which is still pretty sweet if you ask us.

    To celebrate their men, Arlington, Texas has released the top ten places to meet them. If you want a Texan to keep you warm tonight, forget the bars:

  • Texas Rangers game: As many as 50,000 bodies flock to these games. Go to the hot dog stand by the museum (guys like the food here) or stand on a bleacher with a tray of garlic fries.
  • Six Flags Over Texas: Studies show you're more attractive to the opposite sex just after a roller-coaster ride. Buckle up, girls!
  • Six Flags Hurricane Harbor: Men in swimsuits. Enough said.
  • River Legacy Park: Men riding bikes, playing with their dogs, hiking...
  • Whole Foods Market: Guys here take care of their bodies.
  • Dallas Cowboys Stadium: It's a construction site, not a stadium yet - get the picture? Take your binoculars.
  • Cowboys Dancehall: Men in jeans and good music. Do you really need anything else in life?
  • QT on Ballpark Way & Lamar: Sure it's a gas station, but the men who stop here like to open doors for gals. And we all know manners are important.
  • Starbucks: A given in any city.
  • University of Texas: Stroll the campus, hang out in the caf or take a class. Remember, education broadens the mind...
  • Where do you think the best guys in the country live?

    As a guy who lives in Arlington I can attest to the fact that there are more of us than women. Where are all the women going in Arlington -- there seem to be none around. :)

    • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
    • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
    • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
