Here’s a study many will relate to less than a week from Valentine’s Day. According to Wallet Hub, Kentucky is the fifth worst state in the country to be single in. The Bluegrass State came in at No. 46, behind North Dakota and ahead of Mississippi, Alabama, West Virginia, and Arkansas. California ranked as the best state to be single in, followed by Florida and New York.
How did Wallet Hub come to this conclusion? They compared the 50 states across three key dimensions: dating economics, dating opportunities and romance and fun. Per the study, Kentucky ranks among the lowest in dating opportunities, which range from online dating, mobile dating apps, and share of single adults. Kentucky ranked 32nd in dating economics, which is measured by average price of beer and wine, movies, beauty salons, annual household income, unemployment rate, etc. The state was near the middle of the pack in romance and fun, which was evaluated by restaurants per capita, number of attractions, movie theaters, music festivals, nightlife options, bars, crime, etc.
Can I get an “Amen” from our single readers?
