A recent Pew Research Center study shows that Jacksonville is the second-worst city in the nation when it comes to the ratio of employed single men to single women, at 70 to Coming in last just below J-ville? Memphis, with a to ratio of employed men to single women.
These statistics have to be frustrating for local ladies looking for a stable partner, but I have to be honest, they frustrate me as well. But I digress.
In light of this recent study, perhaps I can interest you in some of these colorful underemployed bachelors of our fair city, categorized by region for your convenience: The Unemployed Avondale Artist : Sure, you'll be buying his lunch at an expensive vegan restaurant, but look on the bright guy — since he doesn't have a job, he'll have plenty of time to didactically tell you about his next big art project that we all know is never actually going to happen.
True, he could probably get a job somewhere like Walmart to help you with the bills if he really wanted to, but, due to his talents, he leaves that kind of drudgery to poor single mothers. The Unemployed Riverside Musician : If you like being dragged to open-mic shows in Springfield after your long, hard day at work, this is the guy for you. This Jacksonville has the added benefit of him playing at holes-in-the-wall for tip money in front of an intimate group adoring girls watching and dating to flirt with him every time you turn your back.
He may tweet about the Jaguars from 9 to 5 in lieu of a job, but, hey, he gets the VIP treatment on Dan Hicken's local sports radio show, moving right to the front of the line of callers because of all of his "hot takes" on Gators recruiting! The Unemployed Jax Beach Bum: Forget about all of the other things usually associated with beach bums — the questionable hygiene, the sun-damaged skin, the weird surfer dialect, spending way too much time hanging out in head shops, living in a dilapidated beach house with seven gypsies and three Labradors — and focus on the totally righteous view of the ocean!
What we usually lack in foldin' money, we more than make up for by rudely daydreaming about our next column while you try to talk to us about your day. We may not be important, but we sure will make you believe we are! Just remember, if you tag along with us while we cover events, there may be an opportunity to upgrade.
