Long Beach Ranked 56th Best City for Singles by WalletHub

Just when you thought Tinder, Hinge or Bumble had ceased to provide you the dating options for which you’d been looking, Long Beach landed a spot on WalletHub’s list of the Best Cities for Singles, coming in at 56. Perhaps that diamond in the rough is still out there, waiting for you. 

According to WalletHub’s data, about 109 million, or 45 percent of the U.S. adult population is single, spurring the data team’s evaluation of the 150 most-populated cities in the U.S. on 29 key indicators of location, including “dating economics,” “romance and fun,” and “dating opportunities.” 

“The only problem with being a member of such a large unmarried group, informally known as ‘America’s Singles Club,’ is that your prospects need to live within a drivable or walkable distance — unless you and your future beau can tolerate a completely or partially virtual relationship,” reads the website’s list introduction. “Hey, we’re not judging.” 

Long Beach landed in the 56th spot, just behind Rancho Cucamonga (55) and above Garden Grove, CA (57). It ranked in the following categories as follows: 

  • Dating Economics (restaurant meal costs, movie and taxi-fare costs, etc.): 126
  • Romance and Fun (restaurants, cafes and attractions per capita, etc.): 46
  • Dating Opportunities (share of single population, gender balance, mobile and online dating opportunities, etc.): 38 

The top 10 cities for singles were as follows:

  • San Francisco, California
  • Orlando, Florida
  • Seattle, Washington
  • San Diego, California
  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • Austin, Texas
  • Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Phoenix, Arizona
  • Miami, Florida
  • Los Angeles, California
