If enjoying the outdoors is a priority, can’t beat the PNW. Seattle has great opportunities if you’re into tech. Not the best social scene compared to your list, but I’ve only been here a few years and have made a ton of friends and met my long term partner here.

If outdoors and weather are higher priorities, Seattle. If diversity, things to do, career opportunities, and meeting people are higher priorities, New York. New York typically has about eight weeks a year of what I would call objectively nice weather (summers are hot with a brutal urban heat island effect, and winters are cold and stormy). It’s also unlike anywhere else in the US and has more to offer in absolute terms than any other American city.

NYC. Neither LA not SF are great for single men for making friends and dating both. Less of an outdoor scene and worse weather but you can make it work.

Lived in DC 20 years. Food has gotten to be great. Not far to great outdoors. Free and paid museums are excellent, music is decent. Lots of people turnover makes it easy to find and meet people that are looking for friends.

I fucking hate the expectation that "men must provide" or "women must act a certain way". That's damaging to a lot of relationships. I love division of labor and working with each other's strengths and weaknesses without so much emphasis on gender roles. I'm a big supporter of utilitarian relationship that strives for the good of the partnership and each party.
