New York Named The Best Place For Singles

July 29, 2009

New York (ChattahBox) – New York has stolen the top spot in the Forbes annual poll of the best places in the US for singles, and especially for those who are looking for love.

New York was once much lower on the list, but this year it seems that the romantics are coming out of the woodwork. It beat out the usual heavy-hitters, such as Atlanta, Georgia, San Francisco, California, and Washington D.C.

But according to Forbes, it is less about the city, and more about people who are moving to online venues to find their true love. It was Internet dating sites that bumped New York into the top spot, with Reuters listing New York City as the place with the highest number of online dating profiles.

“Whether that means embracing the great outdoors around Denver or buying the next round of tequila shots in nightlife-oriented Virginia Beach, there are plenty of other like-minded people on the prowl. And, right now, the easiest place to find them is online,” Forbes employee, Lauren Sherman, was quoted in the report.

So, if you are looking to meet ‘The One’, you may want to head down to the city that doesn’t sleep. It looks like there are plenty of possibilities waiting for you there.
