"There's also a pretty good gender balance, about 3/10th of a percentage point off from being 50/50 [men and women], veering slightly more male." That Orlando beat out Miami for second place is intriguing, given that Orlando doesn't have the same degree of happening nightlife as Miami.
But Gonzalez pointed out that Orlando "wins out when it comes to costs." The worst cities for singles — which include Greensboro, North Carolina, at number one; followed by Fontana, California; and Laredo, Texas — share one very unromantic quality: They're all pretty suburban. "In these more suburban communities, there are not a lot of singles.
And while San Francisco is just [as costly], San Francisco has more single people, which made the biggest difference." Still, Gonzalez, a former New Yorker, was surprised that the Big Apple didn't make the top ten.
"I also expected to see more college cities like Tempe, Arizona, make the Top 10, given the sheer amount of singles there," added Gonzalez.
You must know what you want in love before it will show up. We've become a society of people who believe that timing is everything. So when love comes knocking at the door it doesn't realize that it's a Tuesday in February at a certain time and that you are not emotionally ready for it yet. He may be a little older than you expected in your perfect story. But it's the soul that I recognize that I'm connecting with, and when I connect with that soul I see her become more beautiful. It's going to be a wild ride, so you'd better grab your seatbelt, take your fears, and start expecting it.
One of the biggest reasons why college towns didn't make the cut is that their single populations are less into online and mobile dating opportunities.
"College is the last frontier of in-person dating; students in college towns may not yet be using those [mobile and online] avenues," said Gonzalez.
You're going to be loved fully as you desire and deserve.
