Texas is the #2 State in the Country for Singles

This was determined by the share of single adults to online-dating opportunities to things to do in the state.

Dating in Texas (1=Best; 25=Avg.):

  • Overall Rank: 2nd
  • 21st – Online-Dating Opportunities
  • 18th – Mobile-Dating Opportunities
  • 10th – Median Annual Household Income (Adjusted for Cost of Living)
  • 1st – Restaurants per Capita
  • 1st – Movie Theaters per Capita

One thing is for sure Texas is full of restaurants.  Some cities have way more restaurants than they need.  Movie theaters are abundant in many cities across the state.  Yes, other factors went into determining where Texas landed when it comes to this study from Wallet Hub.

Being Single Not Looking For Love May Be the Answer

There are some singles, that do not want to find anyone at the moment.   Anyone who has seen the "Is this Your Man or Woman," or "Are You Dating This Guy or Gal," social media groups knows dating is a nightmare.   Don't get started on the dating apps, half are scammers while the other half aren't truly there for a relationship.

It seems like the dating pool in Texas is a literal cesspool.

The red flags that fly from both men and women alike are insane.  How is a normal person supposed to find true love in a sea of craziness?    Plus, half the dating pool is already dating someone or married and they just want a side piece or a whole pie.


It doesn't matter if Texas is the best state for singles or the worse, you gotta do what's best for you and your life.At some point in time, Prince Charming or Cinderella will come along in the perfect person that fits you.

In the meantime, take a page from Miley Cyrus' playbook.

I can buy myself flowers
Write my name in the sand
Talk to myself for hours
Say things you don't understand
I can take myself dancing
And I can hold my own hand
Yeah, I can love me better than you can

Good Luck!
