The 10 Best Cities in the U.S. for Being Single

Around 45 percent of adults are unmarried according to the latest data from the U.S. Census, and many of those people claim it's impossible for them to find love. But is it possible they're just living in the wrong city?

WalletHub conducted a study of the best and worst cities for people who are single. They used a number of factors including how many single people live in those cities, how many nightlife opportunities there are as well as how many online dating opportunities. Here were the top 10 cities according to their study:

1. Atlanta, Georgia

2. Denver, Colorado

3. San Francisco, California

4. Portland, Oregon

5. Los Angeles, California

6. Seattle, Washington

7. Chicago, Illinois

8. San Diego, California

9. Minneapolis, Minnesota 

10. Portland, Maine

There doesn't seem to be much of a pattern to these results at all. There are three California cities, but there's just a ton of cities in California so that's not surprising. It's also weird that somehow both Portlands made it into the top 10. It's like everyone who's single heard Portland was a great place to be, but they didn't figure out which Portland so some went to Oregon while others went to Maine.

If you're wondering, here were the 10 worst cities for being single.:

1. Brownsville, Texas

2. Pembroke Pines, Florida

3. Hialeah, Florida

4. Pearl City, Hawaii

5. South Burlington, Vermont

6. Warwick, Rhode Island

7. Glendale, California

8. Lewiston, Maine

9. Yonkers, New York

10. Laredo Texas

Again, doesn't really seem to be a pattern here other than none of them are really major cities.

By the way if your strategy is to simply move to whichever city has the most single people and you can just increase your probability that one of them will find you worthy, then you should head to Detroit.
