Best Cities For Singles

Where are the Best Cities For Singles?

Paris may be the City of love, but Barcelona is the city for loving! And Paris is probably the last place that you want to be if you are single. Couples are everywhere, and you will find yourself in the minority. Barcelona Spain however is different. In Barcelona, almost everyone is single. Singles are out on the streets throughout the night eating, drinking, kissing and gazing into each others eyes.

Editors note: Check out this video - not only does it give you a nice flavour of Barcelona what stuck me more was the guy shooting the video. He introduces the video with his purpose which he calls, 'Meet a Local' whereby he arrives in a town knowing no one with the objective of finding a local person who will let him tell their story. How cool is that?!

Berlin, the best place to live? It certainly doesn't have that image but since the fall of communism, Berlin has become a very popular, freewheeling city with a wide range of cultural events. Not only is it a beautiful city, there is a large number of colleges that attract young adults. Berlin is still pretty cheap compared to other European cities, and it’s an easy place to live and work.

Shanghai China

Many people picture massive crowds and tasteless architecture when thinking of cities in China. Shanghai does have some of these problems, but at its core, Shanghai is a beautiful city. Its many cultural attractions and fun atmosphere make it a place where young adults tend to congregate. And now, because of China’s growing economy and internationalism, Shanghai is a popular destination for young adults around the world.

San Francisco USA

San Francisco is probably the most tolerant city in the United States and is a marvelous place for singles. Not only is there abundant natural beauty and artistic wonders, the city is the cultural heart of the West Coast with its museums, music, galleries and street performers. And when the sun goes down, the city comes to life with many areas in San Francisco catering to singles.

Melbourne Australia

Over the past few years, Melbourne has become Australia’s cultural capital. It’s beautiful landscape is pedestrian friendly, and it features a large number of neighborhoods with a bristling night-life of bars and clubs catering to young adults. Melborne has enough to keep singles happy for a long time.

The Best City For Singles

Its tremendous population density makes New York City the right place to meet other people. Everywhere you go, you will run into other singles, so your chance of finding a date is excellent. New York is known as the “the city that never sleeps” for good reason. It has several nightclubs, discos, bars and lounges for people to meet and mingle. New York’s dating scene is exciting and dynamic. It has numerous activities and entertainment from Broadway plays to the countries finest restaurants. Nobody ever gets bored in New York.

With millions of singles living in and around the city, there is someone for everybody. Besides, it’s easier getting a date to the latest Broadway hit than it is to a boring movie in the middle of nowhere.
There is a down-side to living in New York, however. It can be extremely expensive. Rent for an apartment in Manhattan, for instance, starts at $3500 per month. You can save a significant amount of money by living in Queens or Brooklyn where rents are as low as $1500. For those on a budget, a one
bedroom apartment in Newark, New Jersey rents for as little as $600 per month.

Editors note: I saw this video on ouTube and though I'd share it. Although it only looks at the Best Cities for Singles in the United States it's still kind of cool and worth watching. Let me know in the comments if you agree with their list.

The New York area is enormous, so you don't have to live in Manhattan for a night life. Many singles not only want to live in one of the other boroughs, they're forming new centers of culture and activities in areas once reserved for working class families. Places that were once shunned by singles such as Clinton Hill, Washington Heights and Astoria have become bristling places for singles. This is essential as many parts of the city are prohibitively expensive for anyone making less than six figures.
Its millions of singles, theater, fine restaurants, night clubs and bars make
New York City the best place in the world for singles.

Best Places To Live for Singles

Finding a suitable place for a single person to live is as easy as pulling up your favorite search engine. New York is probably the best city in the United States for singles, but it's extremely expensive. Those on a tight budget might like Portland, Oregon better. Portland has a vibrant nightlife, low cost of living compared to New York, and a large population of singles.

Singles wanting to go to South America will want to look into Buenos Aires, Argentina. Buenos Aires is a modern city with a European flair, and is best-known for its cultural and social life. Buenos Aires has a thriving nightlife, and it has a large number of young, single adults. Finding a date, or a spouse should be no problem.

Bangkok is an natural choice for singles moving to Asia. Bangkok's nightlife is unparalleled anywhere in the world. It doesn't matter if you are looking for an alcohol-fueled rave or a quiet, wine-sipping hideaway. Bangkok has it all. When you add its exotic culture, impressive architecture and friendly people, Bangkok is an easy choice.

There is nowhere in Europe, perhaps the world, likes Amsterdam. It is unquestionably one of Europe’s premier cities for singles. Amsterdam has a rich culture and an exciting nightlife. The city is extremely flexible with an anything goes attitude. Amsterdam is much more than its acclaimed red-light district. Its quality of life is among the best in the world, and its healthcare is excellent. It's no exaggeration to say that a single person in Amsterdam is in heaven.

Today's world is a single's world. If you like the nightlife and enjoy hanging-out with like-minded people, there are hundreds of places throughout the world that are right for you. If you're not sure where to go, vacation in a few of your possible locations to try them out. A little bit of time and effort is all it takes to find the perfect place for you.
