Roses are red, violets are blue, and if you’re still single, try someplace new. Maybe you’ve been looking for love in all the wrong places, or you’ve binged on too many romantic comedies and feel like you’re the only person yet to find Mr. Right. Instead of moping through the red and pink displays at your neighborhood grocery store, consider embracing a new locale with a larger dating pool.
Certain cities across the country are hotspots for eligible bachelors and bachelorettes seeking their perfect mates. For the second year in a row, Boston tops Zillow’s list for the best metros to find love. From students to recent transplants, it’s no surprise that the major metro attracts singles looking to mingle. With its mix of urban amenities and Old World charm, Boston offers historical walks along the freedom trail, countless museums and even romantic swan boat rides.
Boasting a single population of 66 percent and over 159 date spots per 10,000 people, the unofficial “capital of New England” has a lot to offer those looking to meet that special someone. With another Super Bowl victory under the Pat’s belt, maybe it’s time for you to make your own touchdown pass this Valentine’s Day.
If Boston isn’t your cup of tea, you can find potential mates in cities across the U.S. Whether you stroll down Bourbon Street in New Orleans (ranked no. 2) or offer cheesy pick-up lines in Milwaukee (ranked no. 10), consider expanding your dating horizons. If you’re looking for love — or for a new place to plant your roots in 2017 —these 10 metros might be a good starting point.
