Did you know more than half of all adults in the U.S. are single?! The personal finance website WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2015’s Best & Worst Cities for Singles… and Fort Lauderdale is #17 BEST city for singles!
Some singles are closer to a happily ever after than they think, but it depends on where they live. To identify the cities in which singles have the highest chance of finding a significant other, WalletHub’s analysts compared the 150 most populated U.S. cities across 25 key metrics. Some things taken into account – the percentage of singles to the number of online-dating opportunities to the number of attractions in each city.
