What should singles look for when choosing a city to live in?

“There are a few general things to look for: Is there a reasonable variety of bars, clubs, and restaurants where you can meet people? Are there other locations where you can meet people, like spaces for open-air concerts, places that offer art or other classes you are interested in, etc?,” says Karin Sternberg, Lecturer/Research Associate, Cornell University. 

Sternberg shares, “To meet other people, you will have to go out and do something, and it helps if you can go out and do something you actually enjoy.”

At the end of the day, you should choose a city that fits your interests. This way, you are more liable to come in contact with like-minded individuals who may spark romantic interest.
