Reader: Maybe Denver Men Who Complain About Not Getting Dates Are Just A$$holes

ladies.man.thinkstock.565x300.jpg
Our item spotlighting one poster maker's twenty reasons why Denver sucks and you shouldn't move here made it clear that the items come from a place of love, not hate, for the Mile High City. But some people still had a problem with a number of the entries. Take this reader, who points out contradictions in a way that's both funny and pointed.

Three of the twenty items listed make fun of women for the way they look, and then the dude complains about not being able to get a date. Maybe it's not "Menver," bro. Maybe you're just an asshole.

Yet, your purported personal experience and observations are hardly indicative of reality as a whole, bub. In simpler terms, you truly are NOT a "nice guy" but are, in fact, a butthurt neckbearded little DWEEB.

Men that date? Most don't understand what that means in my opinion. I'm fed up with meeting a guy and him thinking were gonna have sex....UGH!

If you have a bad personality, nobody is going to want to date you. Calling their boyfriends assholes and them whores is not helping your cause either. If nothing works, then the only common denominator is YOU

I don't know a single girl who would rather date and asshole. We like nice people. But not people who judge us on who we date.

Hate to admit it, but you're right. There is a lot of douche- baggery here in Denver. I'm glad I'm out of the game, but I have know some first-class a$$holes that give women fits 27/7.

...or, more likely, overall standards, which appear quite low amongst much of the population.

Because it's Menver, we don't have to wear makeup, brush our hair, or shave. Boom! It is great to be a hippie chick in this town.

I can get dates easy enough. My thing is that everyone I seem to meet wants a boyfriend. I don't want to be a boyfriend right now.

Well I'm apparently the duff of my group of friends...if I were to talk to a girl that knows a friend of mine I am immediately asked if I can hook them up with said friend, before.

Denver is *full* of assholes, both men and women. Big, gaping, entitled, full of shit assholes.

I think it depends on your age group and demographics.

Assholes get more dates. Anyone complaining about "menver" (first time hearing this term) doesn't have the balls to go up and talk to women. Some list had Denver as the #2 most sexually active city in the US So if you're not getting any here you're screwed.

Did an experiment with Tinder and Match awhile back. Had a good honest profile, pics and was very pro active. Basically got no responses or matches whatsoever.  Then I changed my profile and said I was a doctor and had pics of me with a Ferrari, my friend's fancy loft and pics from when I traveled all over the world. Low and behold, I started getting messages and matches left and right. That pretty much sums it up here. It's better just to do it the old fashioned way and actually meet people in person instead of hiding behind a computer where most of the shallow people reside.

It's 51% to 49%, men to women. The odds aren't much better ladies...

I've never had an easier time getting dates than in Denver.

Fortunately I'm married and haven't had to try the single life in Denver, however I see many attractive women and don't think that it would be difficult to find dates. Maybe the Menver comment is a dated term, doesn't seem like that now.

Guys are assholes everywhere. Nothing different about Colorado. Theres women that are lame lifeless breeders hoping to sit around a house and do nothing but reproduce too. Its more an american thing and you only really see a difference when comparing heavy metro areas to rural areas.

I'm starting to believe people are depending on online sources for dates and no longer ask each other out when you meet in person. Westword- any chance you can do a survey of online daters to see of this is true??? Lol

My dear husband flew out to to visit a friend in Denver and attend caffeine 2009. During his stay he also went snowboarding and to a super raging house party at a friends house (where we met) A couple months later I noticed "Cincinnati James" hanging around our friends house... He enjoyed visiting Denver so much, he moved there!! We exchanged numbers and started dating... Now he Is the love of my life!! We got together in spring of 10'. Now married with a sweet son. Couldn't be happier!! It didn't take him very long after moving there, for him to tell me how he thought about me back home!! It took him going for the gold and never turning back!! Denver has so much opportunity and people are moving here to have great success with that!! ❤️💕The Cool Cincinnati guy meets crazy Colorado girl!! 💕💜

When I read the top 20 list, I was pretty sure it was written from a female's perspective, not a guys. I do agree with the sentiment that it's more difficult to get dates with guys here, even the nice guys are shallow.

The person who commented that is named the dread poet Ryan. It's a good thing that he puts a stupidity disclaimer in his name.
