The Best - and Worst - Places For Singles to Live

Being single can be tough, and where you live can make a big difference. Cinch Home Services published a report on the best and worst places for singles to live. They used the following factors to come up with their rankings: percentage of population that is single, average post-tax monthly wages, median rent for a one bedroom apartment and number and rating of leisure locations within the city. They used this criteria with the top 100 most populous cities in the U.S.

Based on a 1-100 ranking (1 being the best and 100 being the worst), here are the best 25 cities for single and the worst 25 cities for singles.
