Calling all single ladies! Having trouble finding love? It may be the city you live in with a shortage of eligible, employed men, who are 100% single. Pew Research Center complied a list of the best and worst cities for single women who desire marriage. The data was based on the number of unmarried men and women between the ages of 25-34, creating a ratio of how many available men there are compared to single women.
Ladies, don’t let big cities fool you. Despite the huge populations of metropolitan areas like New York City and Chicago, the small cities of America had the highest single men to women ratio. Small-town cities like Hanford, California, had a 236:100 ratio and Mansfield, Ohio, an hour drive from Cleveland, Ohio had a 215:100 ratio, ranking in the top two cities. And if you just happen to reside in Rocky Mount, North Carolina – bad news. Rocky Mount has the worst single men to women ratio at only 79:100.
