Best and worst cities for dating adults
40% of the population is single, and there are an insane 15.9% more ladies than guys.
If you can't hook up in NYC, nothing we can say or do will help you.
You ever walk down the street in New York and wonder, “What’s that smell? Have you also wondered why everybody walks around staring at their phones?
It’s because this is America’s second-busiest Tinder market, and most people are busy left-right swiping their day away.
But let’s cut the nonsense: nobody really cares about the best city to start a hot sauce company. What we do care about, however, is where we can get the most action with the least amount of effort.
And to figure that out, we took a list of the 30 busiest US Tinder markets (as provided by the company) and narrowed it down using three important criteria known to increase odds and fuel the flames of "romance": number of bars per 100 people (according to a study by Infogroup Targeting Solutions); percentage of single residents; and lopsided ratios of women to men.
If you’ve ever spent an hour watching C-SPAN, then you understand why DC has nearly four bars for every thousand people: making laws will drive you to drink.

That said, DC is very dude-friendly -- the city rocks 11.3% more women than men.
