Behind Only Atlanta and San Francisco, Dallas Is the Best City for Singles

Are you single? Do you like to mingle? If so, and you live in Dallas, well done -- because according to the always-listy Forbes, you're in the third-best city in the U.S. for singles. And just how'd the magazine arrive at such a result? By factoring in "Cost of Living Alone," "Culture," "Job Growth," "Online Dating," "Nightlife," the number of single actually living in a city and "Coolness." (Sorry, no "Hotness.") But, really, Belle Starr? Well, I guess Scyene counts as "Dallas." Did in 1864, anyway. Only, remember this one stat, gentlemen: Dallas has way more single mens than womens. --Robert Wilonsky
