As we are now well into full-blown holiday mode, closing in on the end of yet another year, it’s time to reflect on how much it sucks to be single in December.
Well, I take that back. That only applies if you live in one of the cities at the bottom of this list of the Best and Worst Cities for Singles in 2015.
Because if you live in one of the cities rated among the best in this new study by WalletHub.com then you really have no excuse for not having some fun this time of year.
So how did they come up with these rankings?
Our analysts compared the 150 most populated U.S. cities based on 25 key metrics to help you find and prep for the best dating opportunities this holiday season. Our data set ranges from the percentage of singles to the number of online-dating opportunities to the number of attractions in each city.
They also compiled 25 relevant metrics, which are listed here, with their corresponding weights. Each metric was given a value between 0 and 100, wherein 100 is the best value for that metric and 0 is the worst
Blah, blah, blah… we want to know where the fun is (and isn’t).
