LA Observed picks up on a HuffPo list of seven reasons why dating is tough in Los Angeles. Of the reasons include a poor sex ratio (too many men), geographically undesirableness (you live in the Valley?), bad traffic (late for dates!), transience ("I just moved here on a whim"), the entertainment industry's egos and busy schedules, 2 a.m. closing of bars and, most interestingly enough,this urban planning stinger: "lack of pedestrian culture reduces opportunities for casual contact." Anything to add to the list?
