Poll: LA "Singles" Are Awful, Like Mactresses and Range Rovers

New, 64 comments

Santa Monica is the number one place to get laid in greater Los Angeles, apparently. It's not just the number one cheatingest 'hood, either; it's great for singles too! Match polled more than 1,000 of its LA members on their dating habits and preferences and the results are ... pretty embarrassing.

-- A full 43 percent of respondents said "they love meeting potential dates" in Santa Monica. And 46 percent "chose Santa Monica as their favorite neighborhood for dates."

-- Brentwood is apparently the worst place to meet single people. Makes sense.

-- 54 percent of respondents "would avoid taking the 405 highway for a date, and most singles would only date someone within a 30 minute commute." Ok, with you so far.

-- For a "timeless LA date": 33 percent said the Getty is their favorite spot, 27 percent said the Santa Monica Pier, and fewer than 2 percent prefer the Viper Room because they have no idea how to have a good first date and clearly don't know what "timeless" means and they'll probably die alone.

-- For favorite overall date destination: 28 percent want to go to The Grove for dinner, drinks, Frank Sinatra coming out of rocks, and consumerism. A quarter of people like going to the beach in Malibu, which sounds fine. Fewer than 6 percent prefer hiking to the Hollywood Sign, which is probably all right with the neighbors.

-- We're just going to close our eyes and type very fast through this part: men want to date models, actresses, and personal trainers; women want to date "high-powered entertainment executives" and, somewhat oddly, personal chefs. Men want women who drive Civics or Priuses and women want dudes in Range Rovers.
