You know, with all the doing whatever you want whenever you want, being single is a hard-knock life. Wait, actually, being single is kind of incredible. And if you live in Salt Lake City, being single is even more incredible, apparently.
Wallet Hub put together a list of 2015's best US cities for singles, considering the top 150 most populous cities in the United States along 25 metrics, including number of singles, online dating opportunities, and restaurants. When all the numbers were crunched and totals combined, Salt Lake City came out with first prize.
If the Utah capital grabbing first wasn't surprising enough, Orlando, home of Walt Disney World, took second. It seems good, clean fun is great for meeting Mr. or Mrs. Right. See, mom was right. Oh and it gets even weirder: Tempe, AZ came in third. The desert!
In fact, most of the major cities you'd normally associate with, you know, having fun, didn't even make the top 10. New York, LA, and Miami were decidedly absent from the list. In a brief return to normalcy, San Francisco did manage to sneak into 10th. So for all the expensive rent and tech bros, well, SF isn't such a bad place.
Take a look at the top 10, and then quickly change the city in your Tinder profile.
