8 Cities Where You’re Most Likely to Find Love

If you’re a single gal who’s looking for a change in your usual dating pool, this post is dedicated to you. Maybe the problem isn’t that Mr. Right doesn’t exist, but that you’re not looking in the right places. Maybe a move is in your future? It certainly might be when you check out the top 8 cities for finding love in 2016.

  1. Raleigh, North Carolina. Not only are there US Marine bases in North Carolina (gotta love a man in uniform), but Raleigh has a 56% single rate, with 7.1% new single residents moving in over the past year, according to Zillow. The Wall Street Journal places Raleigh in the top half of cities for the best women to men ratios, as well! Plus, North Carolina has gorgeous beaches, so it’s a win/win.
  2. Boston, Massachusetts. The Daily Beast reports that Boston has a single population of 69.1% and a wide variety of places to meet and date. Zillow says that 10.1% of the population are new single residents that have moved into Boston in the past year. Not only that, but the average person’s yearly spending money is $13,835, which could come in handy when you’re out and about on the town.
  3. Colorado Springs, Colorado. Colorado Springs tops the list on numerous websites, boasting military bases, universities, outdoor activities and killer nightlife. According to The Richest, Colorado Springs also has a population where 48% identify as single. I like those odds, and men who enjoy outdoorsy and sporty activities, too.
  4. Seattle, Washington. Thanks to Forbes, I’m happy to tell you there are almost 98 single men for every 100 single women in Seattle. More importantly, single people make up about 60% of the entire population — and Seattle gets an emotional intelligence grade of ,  meaning people are in touch with their feelings and suck less than other places!
  5. Denver, Colorado. Check this out: 59% of the population in Denver is allegedly single and there are almost 40 spots to go on a date for every 1,000 people! If you’re a snow bunny, you might want to head to Denver, where the median disposable income is $15,388 and people get into relationships fairly quickly!
  6. Austin, Texas. In Austin, there are allegedly 102.6 unmarried men to every 100 unmarried women! Austin also boasts being in the top half of cities, according to the Wall Street Journal, where relationships are formed quickly (meaning you wont have to wait forever for him to ask you to be his girlfriend). And if everything is truly bigger in Texas… then sign me up.
  7. San Diego, California. Forbes has exciting news! There are 100.7 single men per every 100 single women! That’s a perfect match. San Diego is also home to more men in uniform, amazing Mexican food, and beautiful weather. Why aren’t we all moving there?
  8. Minneapolis, Minnesota. According to Forbes.com there are 102 single men for every 100 women in Minneapolis. That means there are an extra two guys to choose from! If you don’t mind the snow, then this city might be for you. Zillow says the population is 65% single, and 8.8% are new single residents that moved in the last year. Apparently Minnesotans in Minneapolis also have an extra $16,503 a year to play with. Get my snow boots, I’m moving in!
