Best Cities for Love

The beauty of online dating is that it’s available 24-hours a day and you can meet anyone from a neighbor with a mobile dating app to someone from another continent.

The fine folks at Zillow took a poll of the best cities to find love in 2015 by looking at locations with more than 250,000 residents.

This infographic below lists the best cities of eligible single men and women who could afford a night on the town based on:

  • The percentage of singles.
  • The percentage of singles who moved to town in the past year.
  • The median disposable income among single residents (median income minus median rent).
  • The number of restaurants, movie theaters and other date spots per capita.

Based on that data, the 10 best cities for love are:

  1. Washington, DC
  2. Atlanta
  3. Boston
  4. St. Louis
  5. Denver
  6. Pittsburgh
  7. Minneapolis
  8. Nashville
  9. San Francisco
  10. Raleigh

If your city isn’t on the list, perhaps it’s time to cast a wider net and expand your search by changing your zipcode.

If you’re in Washington, you’re in luck as that city ranks at the top of the list to find singles looking for love.

If you’re living in Los Angeles, why not seek out someone special in the Bay area? According to this list, San Francisco ranks at number 9 and is the only city on the west coast that made the list. If you can’t fathom even dating someone on another freeway, no need to fret.

Even though LA missed the top 10, the data shows it’s 58% single with 2.7% of that single population recently moving to town.  We measured the number of date spots per capita and LA has 33 date spots per every 10,000 people, which is pretty high comparatively. Date spots include: restaurants, bars, nightclubs, coffee shops, live music hangouts, theaters and parks. The final metric was disposable income, LA has a median disposable income of $7,570 – lower than all of the top-ranked cities.

Would you date someone in another city or state? Would you move for love?
