Study Says the Ark-La-Tex is Not the Best Place to Be Single
If you're looking to find love or couple up for the holidays, you may want to take a little road trip.
Before we go too far, let me first say that there is nothing wrong with being single. It's not necessary to be in a relationship to be happy. On the other side of the coin, there are many people who prefer to have a special someone during the cold months and the holiday season. And there's nothing wrong with that either.
That being said, there are some cities better equipped for a dating life.
Recently WalletHub looked at more than 180 cities across the nation to determine which ones were better for singles than others. Their criteria included the share of the population that is single, the number of online dating opportunities, what kind of "date night" activities are available, and more. As it sits right now, the best place to be single and ready to mingle is Atlanta, Georgia.
The Ark-La-Tex struggled a bit.
Although there were high ranking cities in the state of Texas, the highest ranking city that's a reasonable distance from us was Dallas at number 46. The highest ranking city in Arkansas was Little Rock at number 127. Shreveport landed at number 169.
This information may put a damper on your cuffing season too.
