Need a Date? Michigan is One of the Best States for Single People
As someone who's lived in Michigan my entire life, the state obviously has a lot to offer... but your next match? I'm not so sure. Then again, I might just be cynical when it comes to dating, plus this new study says otherwise.
WalletHub compared all 50 states to find '2020's Best & Worst States for Singles' and Michigan is one of the best coming in at #10. The finance website looked at 29 key indicators that fall under "dating-friendliness" such as the number of single adults in each state to nightlife options. They broke it down in three categories:
- Dating Economics
- Dating Opportunities
- Romance & Fun
Under these, Michigan came in 11th, 19th, and 11th respectively.
Other findings include:
- 13th – % of Single Adults
- 3rd – Gender Balance of Singles
- 19th –Median Annual Household Income (Adjusted for Cost of Living)
- 12th – Restaurants per Capita
- 14th – Movie Theaters per Capita
- 24th – Crime Rate
I'm confused we came in 13th for the percentage of single adults... WHERE ARE ALL THESE SINGLE PEOPLE? HELLO!!
If you're like me and having 0 luck in Michigan... maybe a trip to sunny California or Florida might be a good option. Arkansas and West Virginia, though? Not so much.
