Is Houston a friendly city for singles? This is what a new study says
HOUSTON – Wondering why you still haven't found "the one" while living in the country's fourth most populated city?
A study by WalletHub.com compared 182 cities across the US to determine which cities were the best for singles. Houston came in at number 25 in the list.
Researchers took into consideration 35 key indicators to determine which cities were the most dating-friendly. The indicators included things such as the average price for a cocktail, the number of nightlife options, and the city's weather and walkability.
All key indicators were placed into three categories: economics, fun and recreation, and dating opportunities.
The Bayou city ranked number 20 in the 'Fun & Recreation' category and number 63 in 'Dating Opportunities'.
According to the study, more entertainment choices and a low cost of living don't matter much when it comes to finding a soulmate if the number of potential mates to meet are limited in your area.
Around 45 percent of all adults in the country are still unmarried, according to the United States Census Bureau. That includes all of those who are divorced, widowed or never been married. But the number of singles in each city and the ratio of women to men can vary in each.
