the ethiopian chicks help balance that out
JJ took care of the point about the NYC beaches, so I'll skip that
That list is pretty terrible. #4 (Fashion) is the only one I completely agree with. DC Fashion is terrible and a lot of people would definitely look more attractive if they weren't dressed so conservatively or dressed like they don't care at all. I know people in DC who would be more attractive but fall into one of those two traps.
#2 is a terrible reason. People who are into their jobs tend to be Type A personalities, and those people are more likely to work out, care about appearance, etc. Do you think people in LA, NYC, etc aren't job-focused? The problem in DC is everyone THINKS they are way more important than they are, and will tell you how important they are, so they think that should be enough to get them laid, and don't put enough effort into looking attractive. Its also generally not attractive to act like you are hot shit when you are just a second year LA for some nobody Rep
#1 has nothing to do with it b/c LA and NYC take people in and spit them back out just as frequently
#5 is a correlation but not a reason. The majority of the South is warm and outside of pockets, mostly ugly and out of shape. Its a reason for some place like Boston or Minneapolis, but not DC
I don't buy #3 at all. Plenty of people go to Dewey, etc and there are plenty of attractive people in Austin, Nashville, etc.
Basically, my reasons would be:
1) Fashion is terrible
2) People think they are way more important than they are
3) Lack of arts (the arts bring models, actors and actresses, hot waitresses and waiters trying to be both, hot girls working at galleries, hot men and women working at talent agencies, etc, etc)
4) DC is not looked at nationally as a cool, hip place to go like NYC, LA, Miami or a regional draw of all hot young people from the region, like Chicago, Atlanta, etc. If you are close enough to do DC, you can move to NYC, whereas most hot Midwesterners move to Chicago and hot Southerners move to Atlanta or Nashville
5) Rich people don't settle down in DC, so you don't have as many gold-diggers or lazy kids whose only function in life is to party and look good
Post of the Year
Taken out of context.

Don't worry, I'm sure somebody tophered that pic up.
There is no film or fashion scene here, its not a destination unless u aspire to be a senate minority whip. Cold weather sucks the hot out too
This look is very hot right now. In Calcutta.
Pretty sure they passed this picture around at the last Homeland Security briefing I was in.
DC's weather definitely sucks. The winters are cold and the summers are ungodly hot and humid and swampy.
the biggest reason is DC has very little ethnicity...its all pasty whites
are there even any italians in dc?
bethesda is fine. enjoying it.
Thankfully not many.
Seriously. It's pretty much the worst weather anywhere. We get like 3 good weeks in spring and 3 good weeks in the fall and the rest of the year its either too hot/swampy or bone-rattling cold (with random mild stretches that are just a cruel tease and guarantee that everyone gets sick).
I like most other stuff about the area but I really want to move out of it just because I've lived here most of my life and can't stand the weather. My wife wants to as well but won't agree to do it so long as her mother is still alive and in the area. grumble
I've never heard of DC being described as predominantly pasty white.
Didn't get the nickname Chocolate City for our young, white professionals....though, I admit that they are taking over.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
LOL at Chocolate City being 'pasty white'. Ask 2Sticks about that

wait theres negros in dc....bullshit!?!?!
chocolate city clearly does not apply to this thread but yous knew that...the blacks that havent bolted to maryland have all been pushed into a tiny little pocket of dc so the average downtown cat doesnt have to see them and the article nor this discussion is including them
where is little italy...where is greek town...or little vietnam...chinatown is joke in dc...hell even the russian neighborhoods in philly produce from time to time...for the most part in dc all i see are MA or suburban whites and thats not a good look
ill admit other than porn stars not many age faster than italian women but before they become obese grand ma's they are as sexy as anything on the planet....come to south philly with me and i guarantee you will fall in love over the weekend
Pretty sure we're awesome
little vietnam is in virginia. little ethiopia is in dc. little italy is who cares. Chinatown is kind of garbage, but we have all sorts of africans
As of the 2010 Census, the city of Washington, DC is 50.7% black
"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
Yeah, I didn't see any demographic info for the just the Alexandria portion of Fairfax County, but for the entire county its like 17.5% Asian, 18.5% Hispanic, 10% black and the rest white. I mean, if you think this area is pasty white you've just never travelled around the country much. Salt Lake City is so creepily white that I felt uncomfortable there.
then either they need to show themselves or the writer of that article needs to get out more...either way it will help the city elevate its game
DC has to be the national leader in "african americans" from Africa or the Caribbean.
