This is the most miserable city in America for single people.
The dating scene here is ice cold.
Just 15% of singles are satisfied with the dating scene in Syracuse, NY, according to a survey of 11,000 singles in 70 cities released Wednesday by ApartmentList.com. That makes it the lowest ranked city — by a decent margin — in terms of dating satisfaction in America.
Indeed, in Bridgeport, CT ( the second-worst-rated city) and New Haven, CT (the third-worst-rated city) 21% and 25%, respectively, say they are satisfied with the dating scene. Overall about 42% of people were satisfied with the dating scene in their city.
Noticing a pattern in where these low-rated cities are located? “The Northeast has the highest concentration of the worst metros for dating,” the report concludes. Sydney Bennet, a spokesperson for ApartmentList, says that in general, “the Northeast performs poorly on all measures of satisfaction, including dating” and that “a lot of the dissatisfaction comes from the economy and weather, but those can bleed into the dating scene.”
