I'm always surprised by the male/female queer ratio breakdown. I really have no idea what the statistics are; is it just that there are many more gay men than women?

Congrats on the decision Dru!
Hey kids. This probably isn't the right place for this, but I like to talk to my gay DC boys. How's the DC apartment hunting going? I'm having a damned hard time finding cheap apartments that aren't infested w/ roaches according to apartmentratings.com. Where are people looking besides craigslist and washingtoncitypaper? Hook a gal up!
Oh, I think I've seen a few listings for Carrilon, looks interesting.I fully expect to pay at least $1,300 a month, and probably closer to $1,500 when parking's factored in, kates.
Funny you should bring this up. I just (literally "just"...like 10 minutes ago) found a roommate (through the GULC facebook group). He owns a condo on Mass. Ave. Really nice place (hardwood floors, W/D, stainless steel appliances, 2br/ba) in a new building. And....here's the kicker...he's gonna charge me $925/month + utilities! I couldn't believe it...studios go for $1600 in that area.Anyway, my point is...well I really just wanted to gloat ( Tongue....although it's not official yet... ::crosses fingers:: ). But i also wanted to show that your big find might come from an unexpected source (never considered using facebook in my search). So, keep it up...there are good places out there.
I just can't bring myself to live in NoVa.
GW's in a very pretty area but there's absolutely no reason to live in Foggy Bottom unless you're a college student. Van Ness and Cleveland Park are fun neighborhoods, but you can get newer buildings, better amenities, lower taxes, voting rights, and a shorter commute across the river.
I dunno, just my two cents. People come to DC pre-programmed to be suspicious of Virginia (myself included... I remember pleading with a friend in college not to move "so far away")... but it just makes more sense. I have much love and nostalgia for my little DC apartments, but I feel like I live in luxury now comparatively.
Are you in DC now, dru?
