If your search for love has so far been fruitless, maybe it's not you — it's them. Specifically, the fact that there's not enough of them where you live.
For example, if you're a single woman looking for romance in the Big Apple, you might consider hitching it to Silicon Valley.
As "Date-onomics" author Jon Birger reports in Fast Company, Manhattan has a whopping 39% more women than men among college graduates ages 22 to 29. The Silicon Valley area, on the other hand, has 12% more men than women in this category, Birger writes.
You'll also want to take into account the sheer number of singles in your area. According to Census data, about 70% of Washington, D.C. residents are unmarried. That's compared to roughly 45% of all American adults.
We were interested in the geography of online dating in particular. To get a feel for online dating across the US, Business Insider asked Tinder to pull data on its top cities — the locales with the greatest number of active users.
Tinder's in-house sociologist, Jess Carbino, told us that the most active cities don't top the rankings just because they're the most populous cities in the country — it's also because they're home to highly educated young professionals who are most likely to use dating apps.
Here are the top 15:
15. Austin, Texas
14. Las Vegas, Nevada
13. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
