The Best Cities to Meet Single Women
If you’re having trouble finding the woman of your dreams, you may be surprised to find that you’ve been looking in all the wrong places.
I compiled this list based on a number of important criteria — number of women to men ratio (all our top 10 cities have a surplus of women, low divorce rates, level of education, social opportunities to meet these fabulous women, fitness level, and finally, good restaurants. After all, most early dates happen in restaurants — I want to make sure you have something yummy to eat while you’re making your love connection.
You’ll notice I ranked them from 10 to 1, to ratchet up the suspense. Exciting, huh?
So with no further ado, below you’ll find my top ten cities to meet single women:
10) El Paso, TX
El Paso boasts 20,000 more women than men, and has some top notch Mexican restaurants, if you’re into guacamole. Here’s an interesting note about Texas: There are more men than women in Austin, Houston, and Dallas. There are more women in Brownsville, Corpus Christi, and of course, El Paso. If you’re a Texan looking to make a love connection, try taking a road trip.
9) St. Louis, MO
St. Louis has about 20,000 more women than men, plus, an arch.
8 ) Boston, MA
Boston also has 20,000 more women than men, plus a ton of really great social opps. Guys — really, ta good chunk of the East Coast has pretty good odds.
7) Baltimore, MD
I love you Baltimore — and so do 20,000 more women than men. As you may know, Maryland boasts some of the best crab cakes on the planet, and great access to the kind of cultural events you do lots of when you first start to date.
6) Chicago, IL
First, Chicago has 40,000 more women than men, so the odds are really working for you now. Aside from that, Chicago has social opportunities galore, deep dish pizza, the Cubs, and the best tapas restaurant I’ve ever eaten at. Dating heaven.
5) Memphis, TN
Great BBQ, fantastic music, and 25,000 more women than men.
4) New Orleans, LA
Do you know what it means to date in New Orleans? 40,000 more women than men, lots of social opps, and all the crawfish, shrimp, and oysters you can eat.
3) New York, NY
This town is the motherlode of single women — in the NYC area, there are more than 180,000 more women than men. You won’t find better odds, or restaurants in the country. Plus, the divorce rate is low, and there are socializing opps galore in the city that never sleeps.
2) Washington, DC
40,000 more women than men, plus a high level of education, a higher than average level of fitness, and all the social opportunities you can stand.
1) Raleigh, NC
Raleigh wins my top honors because it has a highly educated population (thank you, Research Triangle), a low divorce rate, fabulous social life, southern hospitality and some of the best BBQ you’ll find anywhere.
