If you’re looking for a relationship and happen to live in Michigan, then you’re in luck. According to a new study, one Michigan city is perfect for singles.
The crew at WalletHub recently released a study that looked 182 U.S. cites in three key dimensions to find best and worst cities for singles. Those factors included economics; fun & recreation; and dating opportunities. Then, WalletHub evaluated each dimension on various metrics, such as the average price for two people to have a meal out, social clubs per capita, share of single population and more.
“We evaluated those dimensions using 36 relevant metrics, which are listed below with their corresponding weights. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the most favorable conditions for singles,” WalletHub states.
According to Wallethub, “Nearly 50% of the U.S. adult population is unmarried (never married, divorced or widowed), according to the latest U.S. Census Bureau estimates. The share may be higher or lower in an individual city, though, and the ratio of women to men also will differ in each. Some singles may boost their chances of meeting others through online dating, which got a boost in popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
So, what are some great spots in America for singles? Drum roll. According to Wallethub, the city in America with the highest number of singles is Burlington, Vermont. Then, at No. 2 is Detroit, Michigan. Find the full study of the best cities to find love in America here.
