Reader: Sorry, but A$$holes in Denver Get More Dates

We love Comment of the Day items that get even more people talking -- and this was definitely the case with a post inspired by an artist's tongue-in-cheek reasons not to move to Denver. In it, a reader suggested that Denver men who complain about not getting dates may simply be assholes -- a take that spawned a wide variety of responses, including this defense of assholery.

Assholes get more dates. Anyone complaining about "menver" (first time hearing this term) doesn't have the balls to go up and talk to women. Some list had Denver as the #2 most sexually active city in the US So if you're not getting any here you're screwed.
