Austin third-best place for singles

Yes; creepy Denver-Boulder is the best place, according to Forbes magazine. And to top off today's bad news, we've learned that the dollar movie house in Wells Branch is being displaced by its landlord in favor of a Walgreen's drugstore. This will take away a favorite game, that of guessing which movies will be shown there at a lower price and which must be seen at full price if they're to be enjoyed on a big screen. The shopping center is far from fully rented. Why couldn't Walgreen's have gone into the vacant Albertson's? People seeing movies or hitting the McD's nearby constitute most of the visitors to the center. This movie house attracts people with children who can't afford to go anywhere else; it also gives a second run to movies like Barbershop, White Chicks, and Breakin' All the Rules. The popcorn's always fresh, and the kids who work there will miss their jobs. No wonder Austin's becoming such a bad place for single people.

I truly miss the dollar movies. Movies that you didn't feel like paying an arm and a leg for are now gone. As for as for austin being the top when it comes to dating is something I completely disagree with. most of the girls i have ever hooked up with are from another country! every girl in austin either has a live in boyfriend or is uptight about going on a simple lunch date. I am not white maybe that is there problem. I just dont even bother talking to women anymore because they are so uptight and rude. I miss friendly atractive women who like to have fun and are not so uptight! I think austin should be ranked last in dating. also many women at bars are sleazy or go just to dance with their lesbian girlfriends or their boyfriends. WHAT A LAME TOWN...
