Atlanta Named Best City for Singles

Forbes magazine has for the eighth year rated the nation’s largest urban areas in terms of how friendly they are to the country’s 74 million single adults.

To determine which U.S. cities are most comfortable for soloists, the magazine ranked the 40 largest urbanized areas in seven different categories: number of singles, nightlife, culture, cost of living alone, job growth, online dating activity and coolness.

Coolness was the most subjective factor. It was determined by a Harris poll, which asked singles to answer the question: “Which city do you think is the coolest?”

This year’s top 10 cities for singles are:

  1. Atlanta
  2. San Francisco
  3. Dallas
  4. Minneapolis
  5. Washington D.C.
  6. Seattle
  7. Boston
  8. New York City
  9. Orlando
  10. Phoenix
