According to bestplaces.net the worst city in the whole country for dating is Kansas City, Missouri... I am just as surprised as you are! Kansas City seems like such a great young-person town with a ton of incredible spots for going out on a date, so what are the criteria that this website used to determine their Best and Worst cities? Well on the website they say...

"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."

The other towns that make up the bottom of the list are Witchita, Minneapolis, Detroit, Louisville, Atlanta, and Pittsburgh among others. So what are the towns that this website thinks are the best in the country for dating well number one is Austin followed by, Colorado Springs, San Diego, Raleigh, and Seattle rounding out the top 5.

I still just don't honestly believe that dating in a city like Colorado Springs is THAT much better than dating in a city like Kansas City, there has to be some reason why Kansas City got ranked poorly here, maybe there just aren't a lot of 18 to 24-year-olds in KC? It just really doesn't make sense to me, but I have also not spent a ton of time in KC, what city do you think is the worst city in the country for dating?
