Florida is the state to be if you're single, according to a recent report by WalletHub.
When it comes to dating, the Sunshine State ranked #1. It's no secret that there is an abundance of fun and romantic activities to choose from. It's tied with California, Texas and New York for the most restaurants per capita, and ranked #6 for most movie theaters per capita. In a previous study from November, Tampa made the top 20 for best cities for singles.
WalletHub compared all 50 states across three dimensions:
- Dating Economics (i.e. movie costs, average beer and wine price, unemployment rate for single population)
- Dating Opportunities (i.e. share of single adults, gender balance of singles, online dating opportunities)
- Romance & Fun (i.e. restaurants per capita, nightlife options per capita, crime rate)
Florida was rated the third best state for Dating Opportunities and fourth best for Romance & Fun. It also ranked in the top 10 for both percentage of singles (ranked #8) and gender balance of singles (ranked #10).
