The women in Austin are either lesbian, stuck-up, or brain-damaged. Whichever the case, they all have baggage.

Delaware is one of the worst places for singles

Worst place for singles? Anyone hear of a ****hole called Provo, Utah?

Santa Barbara!? Are you fricken' kidding? Maybe best place if your single, pretentious & stuck up.

Yuma? I went through there in the month of July some time back. The whole town had tin foil on the windows to deflect the stinking heat.

I'm 28, on the wrong side of 25, lived in Austin the last 28 years, and I can tell you these numbers show "unmarried" which doesn't clarify "not having bf/gf." If you're older than 24 and still haven't met someone in Austin, LEAVE. The few remaining single women are superficial and raise their standards too damn high no matter what you you're always being one-upped.

Women here hit the gym after work because there's nothing to do except go to 6th street and they're fake anyways. Women here want that military guy that doesn't exist because they're fake anyways.

Even when they're remotely single, women in Austin 25-30 don't know what they want, and really don't waste your time.

Sorry but it's out there.

LOL. Could it be that some of the largest universities in the country are located in these cities? I went to UT and when you look at the number of singles in the city due to the school being there, all I could say was call me Matthew McConaughey, "Alright Alright Alright!!!"

Wine Guy is right about Austin. I have real estate there and it is grossly overpopulated. But my brother lives in Florida, and the real estate is grossly overpriced, not to mention the state taxes. The same applies to California, which is why everyone lives in Austin. However, if I were 22 and just starting out in life, i would go where the jobs are and forget about the scenery until i could afford to move.

Its funny how singles are still considered "teens" and post teens. All of these cities highlight college towns. This is a total BS survey. I'm 57 and single and find many women in communities with gyms, 55+ communities and swimming clubs. I'm 57....I'm not dead.

Lived in SB ten years...who would ever call this the "best city for singles?"  This is a town for college students, families, and retirees.  Virtually all of my friends moved away to cities like Portland, Seattle, LA, San Fran, and we all had the discussion about how hard it is to meet people in SB.  I think the research here doesn't match the reality.  Sorry

There's a typo.  Santa Barbara's cost of living would be 7.2 % ABOVE, not below, the national average

Isn't McAllen 90% Latino?  That can make it great, if that's what you want.

If you love extreme weather, terrible traffic, drought, high property taxes, high utility bills, no beaches and no pro sports, you should move to Austin. 6 degrees in January. 112 degrees in August. 100 days near 100 degrees every year. Wow that's awesome. I love a climate that attacks you. Of course there is a college there and the bar scene is huge. But there's much more to life than beer. Ann Arbor come on, not pleasant. Iowa City, do young people really want to live there? Columbus, again let's ponder this Ohio and young people: is that an oxymoron? For young people think California and Florida.....you know beaches, bars, pro sports, bikinis, martinis, clubs, and world class food.......

I can agree with Kingsport, Tn.'s rating. That place is a "S#*THOLE" at best...

I can honestly say that because I grew up in that region !!!

I spent a month one night in Yuma.

When MSN carries these articles from Kiplinger about "cities" why isn't a study done with only big cities? You know, comparing Seattle, Chicago, NYC's five boroughs', DC, San Francisco, Boston, LA, San Diego, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Houston, Denver, Phoenix, Nashville, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Miami, New Orleans...you know, REAL URBAN CENTERS.


Only Austin or maybe Columbus I would call a city. Yuma, Ann Arbor, Punta Gorda (wtf is a Punta Gorda and where is it?), Sandusky, Texarkana, Ocala, Punxatawny, Gravelsburg or Outer Moosejaw are not cities, but suburban sprawl areas that may or may not have some kind of "downtown" section. If they do it's really just a financial district where no one lives and closes after dark. I know, I used to travel extensively for work, ten years on the road and I've been to every big city and every burg in between.


As a single big city guy, a HUGE paycheck would have to be the "carrot on a stick" to consider any of the four choices other than Austin. Santa Barbara is beautiful, but if I moved to Cali, I'd rather be in LA, SD or SF, you know, where there is a scene, a vibe.


BTW, I'm no kid. I'm in my 50's and living in a vibrant city is keeping me young.

wow, now they're telling people where to live.
aren't there more important issues in our country/world to address rather than dictating where people should live?
why don't you encourage people to stay in their own town and make it better?
