Single? You're in the right place, according to a recent "study" by Rent.com. We think they may have wanted to preface it as the number one city for singles who want to stay single.
If you love riding solo, rent.com shares one reason San Francisco is the best place for singles is because of tech. Yes, tech: "San Francisco, the epicenter of tech innovation, hundreds of dating apps, and plenty of single software engineers, was named the #1 city for singles in the U.S."
But of course if you're not into Tinder, they note you can just hangout at Dolores Park and strike up a conversation with whoever wanders by! Rent.com says, "if you're not into meeting your match online, you can always strike up a conversation with someone new while hanging out at Dolores Park or grabbing your java at Jane." (Are we really calling it java?)
But how we snatched the number one spot away from NYC has to do with our high scores for density of nightlife options, restaurants, and coffee shops in relationship to rental numbers, city safety, and concentration of single adults over the age of 20. Like we said, they may be right that S.F. is a good city for singles, but if you're looking to couple up, it may be tough.
