I did not notice a culture difference between the Bay Area and Portland except it's even more liberal in places, and of course a faster and more expensive pace of life.I'm guessing far-far away from the San Francisco, LA regions. Far enough that it could be mistaken for Nevada.
Most of us have aged out of any kind of looks based dating culture, if we were ever in it at all. After a certain age who you can meet is based on who you can befriend socially and there are no shortcuts. I have also found that anyone too far out of my social range has values different enough from mine that it wouldn't be a happy pairing anyway.
I've traveled all over the US and found no exceptions to this rule.
