Best dating cities in the us
You’d think that big cities like New York and Miami would be full of singles looking to mingle, right? According to a new survey by Badoo, the best and worst cities for dating aren’t what you’d expect. The survey claims that the best city for singles in the United States is Norfolk, Virginia, because it has the highest concentration of singles in the nation.
Other cities that supposedly suck for singles are Miami, Houston, San Francisco, and Laredo, Texas, because, again, there aren’t as many singles around as you might think.
One could argue that it is, therefore, a great time to be single.
Note: we recognize that this list is more geared toward being young-and-single than old-and-single – that might be a list for another day. We started by looking at places where there are plenty of singles to choose from, so we looked at the percentage of unmarried people, the percentage of the population in prime marriageable age, places where large percentages are living alone – that’s all Census data.
I was surprised to hear that North Carolina and Texas were considered the most desirable by their residents, with each having multiple cities placing in the top 10.
Broken down by gender, overall, 51 percent of men were satisfied with their opportunities while their women counterparts, had an overall satisfaction rate 47 percent."We expect that each person surveyed rated their city based on their own personal experiences and observations of the dating scene in their city," Andrew Woo, Director of Data Science for Apartment List, tells Bustle.
