Vail Daily letters: 10 to 1 males to females in Vail?

Vail, CO, Colorado

Dear Vail, Colorado: I came across an article on MSN this morning which stated that not only is Vail, Colorado one of the most beautiful places they visited it was also a town that boasted 10 men to every woman.

Now, this is an astounding fact that I felt deserved more research. First, is this true? If it is please tell me how this has remained such a secret all of these years for all of us single women in the world.

In this world of “hook-ups,” it’s became very disheartening to find men that are looking for a relationship, for long term, for marriage. So even if Vail does boast the 10 to 1 ratio, what is the ratio of men in Vail that are looking for what I seek? And it’s not just me. There are millions of women in this country that are more than ready for the letter — Vail men, I challenge you to write and help prove there are really men out there that are like us.

Now not only will we need to know if you seek what we seek we will need to know the age group you fall in — 20-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 60-70, etc.

Now I myself am very active. I usually run a couple of miles a day. I lift weights to keep good muscles. I eat healthy but still manage to have a few drinks on weekends while out and about. I know many women like me. We are keeping ourselves fit, looking good, have great personalities. Some have children. Some are empty nesters just looking for that man that will treat us like we deserve to be treated. Men, here is a secret: When you treat us that way, you will find you are treated like a king.

I am banking on Vail, Colorado, men to step up to the plate and show us that there are real men out there who want to find love as much as we do.
