Having trouble finding love? It might just be you.

The odds of finding a partner are even more likely for Houstonians as a study finds Houston to be the best city in Texas for singles.

After comparing more than 180 U.S. cities, the study by WalletHub ranked Houston No. 44 in the nation as one of the best cities for singles.

To determine results, experts reviewed 32 key indicators of dating-friendliness across three key dimensions – economics, fun and recreation, and dating opportunities.
