Cities with best guy-to-girl ratios
Finding the right place to move to for a summer internship or a job after graduation takes on a whole new shade of gray if you’re also trying to find Mr. Right (or at least, Mr. Right Now).
We decided to take out some of the guesswork for you by using research and the Internet to find the cities with the highest single-guy-to-girl ratios.
According to NerdWallet’s latest study, San Jose wins with a ratio of five single guys for every four single girls. Divya Raghavan, the NerdWallet analyst who conducted the study, pulled data from the U.S. census, and San Jose came out on top. Downtown San Jose offers stunning sidewalk fountains and a cultural hub at Plaza de César Chávez. Relive your childhood by running hand in hand through the spouting water.
San Diego followed closely behind with almost the same ratio. Spice things up by going on an evening Hornblower dinner cruise, where you can eat a gourmet meal under the stars and dance along San Diego Bay. Known for romance and enjoyed by couples and singles alike, the nighttime cruises might heat things up between you and a new guy.

This large Texas city came in fourth in Raghavan’s study, with a ratio of six single guys to five single girls. If you’re a music maven, you’ll find plenty of things to do here. Music fuels Austin’s nightlife. According to the city’s website, there are “nearly 200 venues that feature everything from rock and blues to country and jazz every night of the week.”

According to Jessica Schimm, a journalism major at San Francisco State University, her city is “a fantastic city to be single.” The population is diverse, so you’ll have the opportunity to meet all kinds of guys: hipsters, businessmen, startup techies and college guys. No one is in a rush to get married; you can focus on your career and date to your heart’s content.
Houston boasts a ratio of eight single guys for every seven single girls, according to NerdWallet’s study, which means finding someone to talk to should be easy.

Once again, Texas gives us another hot city for single women. Dallas has a guy-to-girl ratio of 10-to-9, or 114.5 single guys for every 100 single women.
Sure, you’ll have to go to work every day, but you can head to the beach afterward. If that isn’t enough to convince you, Raghavan’s study found there are 114.1 single guys for every 100 single girls. All you have to do is head out to the beach and strike up a conversation!
Seattle, Denver and Boston fill out the list.
