Facebook Says Phoenix 10th-Best City for Love
Single this Valentine's Day? No worries: According to Facebook, Phoenix is one of the top cities to find a relationship.
Facebook's researchers analyzed the 48 best and worst cities for love based on the amount of people who changed their relationship status from "single" to "in a relationship" and vice versa in a one month period. According to the study released by the Wall Street Journal, Phoenix ranks 10th in "relationship-formation rate," or the likelihood of people to seek relationships in their city.
Nationally, Colorado Springs is the best city to find Facebook-official true love, while residents of San Francisco are the most likely to be destined for social media singledom. The study found that most of the major metropolitan cities like New York, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., had lower relationship numbers than smaller cities.
Researchers also calculated the percentage of singles in each city, and most single females to single male and vice versa. A complete list can be found here.
