It’s a tough world to be single in (speaking from experience). But how does North Carolina rank for singles compared to other places in the US? Not that great in all honestly. Our friends at WalletHub conducted a study of the Best & Worst Cities For Singles. And the results were, well, interesting. The best city in North Carolina for singles? Well, it wasn’t Raleigh and it wasn’t Charlotte. (Good now I don’t feel so bad about myself!)
An interesting statistic that WalletHub shared with us is that nearly 47% of all U.S. adults are unmarried. It sure doesn’t feel that way! But only 42% of those single adults are interested in a relationship or casual dating right now. Now it’s making a little more sense. WalletHub compared more than 180 U.S. cities across 35 key indicators of dating-friendliness. So what type of data tells us how a city fares for singles? For this study, WalletHub used data including “the share of the population that is single”, “the number of online dating opportunities”, and “the average price for a two-person meal”.To conduct this study
South Carolina actually came out better than North Carolina on this list, with the only two SC cities included topping every North Carolina one. And the North Carolina city that’s the best for singles? I never would have guessed. Keep reading to see the top 10 as well as where each Carolina city ranked.
