WalletHub may basically be a financial website, however, they not only care about their consumer's monetary situations but also their lifestyles. Apparently they don't want their users to be lonely.

So in the spirit of playing matchmaker, WalletHub compared 182 of the largest cities in the U.S. in numerous categories to determine which of those cities were more conducive to dating and/or finding love. The last U.S. Census found that about 45% of U.S adults are single, many willingly, but many not.

As usual, when evaluating why it could be more advantageous to live in one city over another, they considered economic and recreational opportunities across a wide spectrum. They contrasted dating opportunities against the cost of housing, median salaries, job growth, unemployment, entertainment costs, and opportunities.

In other words, a city may indeed have a larger dating pool, but if you can't afford to live and work there while pursuing the love of your life, should you move there?
