If you’ve felt like your dating life was kind of blah last year, it may have had more to do with where you live than your choice in men. Much like real estate the trick to finding your perfect fit starts with location, location, location! According to a recent article on The Grio the ATL has been named the #1 city in the country to find a date. So what makes the A such a dating hotspot? Well, tons of singles living a quality life, with a little bit of disposable cash of course!

Reports show that 69 percent of Atlanta’s men are single as are 71 percent of the women and the median salary for singles in the area is $38,174. The creators of the study felt that Atlanta’s high average incomes and larger groups of singles provided the perfect mix for those looking for love in the New Year. Don’t live in or around Atlanta?

    I dont agree with that list. I was born and raised here. I can say if you want to be single and supposedly live the hollyhood life then Atlanta is home for you. I hear more complaints from Atlanta than any other city. I can add that if you want a good job, (paying) good man, and that good life move away from here. I am 23, and never dated and never had a relationship. But to see others in relationships and my mom including it is so much more baggage and many dont want to commit to make it longterm potential. Here a guy can date you for almost 4 or 5 years and never put a ring on it. Some are stuck in the clubs, and stripclubs. If you prefer to live in the midtown/buckhead/downtown area do not search for a man, it is off the chain with dl men. But hey to each its own, every city isnt perfect.
