Finding love can be an adventure.

Finding love isn’t always easy. Actually, finding love is never easy. But, it helps if you live in a city that facilitates dating and meeting that special someone. As it turns out, one Michigan city is one of the best for dating in the entire U.S.

The crew at BestPlaces.net has put together a new study to determine the best cities for dating in America. Now, they did look at a pretty young demographic of ages 18-24, but even those outside that age group can benefit for the dating-friendly towns highlighted on this list. “The study is based on criteria that includes percentage of singles ages 18-24, population density, and dating venues per capita such as concerts, coffee shops, bars, bowling alleys, etc., and includes 80 metro areas in America,” they state. “We teamed up with AXE Deodorant Bodyspray, which specializes in the dating game, to find out which city is revered as the D.C. (Dating Capital) of the U.S.”

The study found some surprises. “Large cities that everyone associates with socializing, like Los Angeles and Miami, did not rank particularly high, scoring lower in categories like coffee shops per capita and flowers bought as gifts,” Bert Sperling, president of Sperling’s BestPlaces, said in a statement.

So, which Michigan city made the cut? Ann Arbor, Michigan, is actually ranked inside the top 10 of cities for dating in America, coming in at No. 8. The study notes that Ann Arbor “scores in the 98th percentile for percentage of singles and ranks high in the dining out category, as well.” Unfortunately, Michigan also has one of the worst cities for dating, according to the study, with Detroit coming in as the No. 4 worst city in the U.S. for meeting that special someone. The No. 1 best city in America for dating was Austin, Texas, and the No. 1 worst was Kansas City, Missouri. Find the full list here.
