See where Texas ranks in national study of best and worst states for single people
HOUSTON – With Valentine’s Day right around the corner are you wondering why you’re still single?
You know you’re a catch, but besides your looks, personality and interests, your location can also influence your odds of finding a romantic partner, according to WalletHub.
A recent study conducted by the personal finance website compared the 50 U.S. states to determine the best and worst states for singles. Texas came in as No. 3 on the list.
To determine the rankings, researchers used 29 relevant metrics such as the gender balance of singles, online-dating opportunities, the median credit score and restaurants per capita. The 29 metrics were divided among three main categories including dating economics, dating opportunities, and romance and fun.
Texas ranked No. 1 in the “Most Restaurants per Capita” section along with California, New York and Florida. The Lone Star State also tied in the “Most Movie Theatres per Capita” section with California, New York and Iowa.
