Finding love in the modern age of dating can be a real challenge, especially when you start looking at statistical data but one Illinois city ranks in the top 12% if you're single and looking to mingle.

Finding Love Isn't Easy

Almost 47% of American adults have either never been married, or they are divorced or widowed, according to the most recent US Census. Of those, almost 60% have no interest in a relationship, according to data from Pew Research Center.

A Look at the Data

The folks at WalletHub have compared data for almost 200 cities across the United States crunching numbers for everything from how many single people live in the city to the average price of dinner for two.

In order to determine the best cities for singles, WalletHub compared 182 cities — including the 150 most populated U.S. cities, plus at least two of the most populated cities in each state — across three key dimensions: 1) Economics, 2) Fun & Recreation and 3) Dating Opportunities. We evaluated those dimensions using 35 relevant metrics... Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the most favorable conditions for singles. -WalletHub

The Top of the List

Seattle, Las Vegas, and Denver are the cities topping the list for singles in America. With its abundance of attractions, restaurants, clubs, and other venues, it is easy to see why Seattle was named the Number One best city for singles as a whole. Likewise, there is no shortage of date opportunities in Las Vegas and Denver either.
