Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Can't understand a word of the intro to Forbes's latest listicle -- "Best Cities For Singles 2009," apparently compiled using Match.com data and other info -- so let's skip it and head straight to the entry for Dallas, which comes in at No. 17:

Dallas is high on the list for projected job growth and perceived coolness. However, there are fewer singles in the area than one would hope. Popular spots for those who do reside in the area include Vino 100 Wine Bar in Uptown and gay dance bar Round-Up Saloon.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
