We are just a few weeks from Valentine’s Day or known to some as Singles Awareness Day. If you’re looking for love then you may be in the right place. That’s correct, North Carolina was ranked as one of the top states for singles by a recent WalletHub study. And that makes me feel even worst about being single. There are a lot of factors that can influence your finding of that special someone you want to spend your life with. There are the superficial and looks but it’s important. Other factors are personality, interests, career, and even location. Let’s face it dating is easier when there are more options for places to go, people to meet, etc.

So states combine all of those qualities and therefore are ideal for singles? To answer that question, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 30 key indicators of dating-friendliness. The data set ranges from the share of single adults to online-dating opportunities to restaurants per capita. Keep reading to see exactly where North Carolina ranked for singles, and where you should relocate if you want an even better shot at love.  You’ll also find the 10 worst states, which feature our neighbors to the south.
