WASHINGTON POST - Feb 18 - One thing distinguishes the Silicon Valley dating pool: The men-to-women ratio for employed, young singles in the San Jose metro area is higher here than any other major area. There were 150 men for every 100 women, compared to 125 to 100 nationwide, of never-married young people between 25 and 34 in San Jose, U.S. Census data from 2016 show. Women here said they feel outnumbered, overworked and underwhelmed by the tech industry's egos and eccentricities. Men, in return, said they feel outmatched or overlooked. In the San Francisco and San Jose areas, the marriage rate for adults ages 18 to 49 fell ~6% between 2005 and 2016. Just one in four here are married by age 30. Bumble, whose 400K users in Silicon Valley have matched up 20M times since 2014, said users here have a "lower-than-average right-swipe proportion" than other large metro areas. In other words, they typically like what they see a bit less.
