Move aside couples! Valentine’s Day is over, and it’s all about the singles now. Insurify’s Best Cities for Singles Awards shines a spotlight on the communities that foster the best communities for these singles to live and find love.

With each passing year, the American population has moved closer and closer having as many unmarried adults as married ones. That being said, only some cities are ahead of the curve on fostering the ideal communities for these single residents to thrive. Differences in single populations, gender ratios, cost of living, and the affordability of a date (should you meet that special someone) make it so that some cities rise above the rest.

Just in time for Singles Awareness Day, Insurify is honoring the best city for singles in each state!

Selection Process for Insurify’s 2019 Best Cities for Singles Award

The data scientists at Insurify, a site that lets users compare insurance policies, collected information on population statistics and economic indices to determine the friendliest cities for singles. Cities were assigned higher scores based on the following criteria: a higher single population; a more balanced gender ratio; and cheaper costs for living, rent, and restaurant meals according the United States Census Bureau and Numbeo. These scores were then used to identify the most singles-friendly city in each state.

Congratulations to the winning cities, who foster the best living experience, not just for families, but for all residents!
