This american life dating boston
This high ranking is good news, because singles attract other singles.
Numerous studies have found that young people pick where they want to live first and then search for a job in those places.
In our highly mobile society - where 40 million Americans move every year and 15 million of us make significant moves to a new county, a different state, or a different country - younger singles are the most mobile group of all.
Worcester; Portland, Maine; and Portsmouth-Manchester, N. H., also score among the top five for singles among small-medium-sized regions nationwide.
When Forbes magazine asked young singles of both genders what matters most in the places they live, more said "number of other singles" than said "great career prospects"; things like "wild nightlife" and "low cost of living" came in much farther behind.
The ability to attract young singles also bodes well for regional economies.
And smart women who gravitate to vibrant cities are more likely to stay single - for longer, at least - because they rightly refuse to settle for someone who can't keep up with them intellectually or otherwise.
But women do have an advantage in the American West and Southwest.
