10 Best Cities for Dating in the US for Your Next Move

The Methodology

To figure out the best cities for dating, WalletHub, a personal finance website, compared 182 cities in the US across three dimensions.

They measured the economic, recreational, and dating aspects in each city on a 100-point scale. Every city could earn as much as 25 points in terms of economics, 25 in recreation, and 50 in dating opportunities.

Housing affordability, meal costs, and household income were the main considerations on the economic scale. Per capita counts of restaurants, fitness centers, coffee shops, parks, and shops were tallied under recreational opportunities. Finally, gender balance, share of single population, active Tinder users, and mobile or online dating opportunities were scored in dating opportunities.

Based on all these factors, the following are the top cities for dating in the US.

10. Tempe, Arizona

First on our list, Tempe, Arizona. The city placed 10th among 182 cities in the US, as it finished with a score of 61.49 points. It scored highest in terms of economics, followed by dating opportunities, and lastly in recreational opportunities.

That being said, there are a number of things to do in Tempe. Feeling outdoorsy? Go for a hike or head over to Tempe Town Lake, “a big lake within a big city within a big desert.”

If you’re more of an indoor person, try a luxurious movie-going experience at AMC Centerpoint 11 located at the heart of Downtown Tempe. You can also ask your date to go with you to the Tempe Festival of the Arts, one of the longest-running arts festivals in the country.
