Rent.com has put together the top 10 cities in the country for singles who just want to have fun. Note: this isn't the list of where singles should live if they're looking to find themselves in a relationship, but a list of the cities where people really live it up and take advantage of every single second of being single.
Big congratulations to Atlanta and Miami for being named the most "sexually charged" cities in the U.S! If you live in the ATL or the MIA (do they even call it that? I'm such a dork) and you had no idea, now you know — and you've got to start living up to the expectations the rest of the country has for you, OBVI.
With the extreme sexualization of pretty much everything in our culture — from toddlers in beauty pageants to commercials about eating salad — I'd think it's safe to assume that America cares about sex.
Do you keep meeting disappointing men? The ones who seem so promising at first, but then end up never calling you, or worse — promising you the world and then breaking your heart? A recent Chemistry.com poll says it may be because you're living in the wrong city.
August is National Romance Awareness Month, and to commemorate 31 days of love and affection, Chemistry.com is making it easier for single ladies everywhere to find their very own Prince Charming. Or so they say!
Personally, we're big fans of Maui. It has the beach, the dolphin tours, the volcano-side biking, and the five-star resorts. But we know plenty of other couples who prefer the sprawl of Tokyo or the untamed jungles of Bolivia. What makes a destination romantic? Ambiance counts for at least half of the appeal—the other half comes from the chemistry born of your new locale. How To Take A Successful Vacation As A Couple
Although Paris may traditionally be considered the City of Love, America has a romance capital, too: Alexandria, Virginia. Don't believe us? It's true! Amazon.com recently released its list of the Top 20 Most Romantic Cities in the United States, and Alexandria took the top spot for the second year in a row. Apparently the city has the magical key for keeping the love alive. To come up with the list, Amazon compiled sales stats in four categories on a per capita basis: romance novels and relationship books, romantic comedy movies, sexual-wellness products and Barry White albums (nice). Alexandria came out on top, followed by Knoxville, Tennessee in second and Orlando, Florida in third.
In a recent "chivalry smack-down" between five major cities, young women and elderly men were stationed on high-traffic corners and loaded up their arms with boxes until they were visibly struggling to hold them. Which cities were the most helpful, and which gave the struggling shoppers the cold shoulder?
We live in New York City, where the man-to-woman ratio can be rough, so we had always assumed it was pretty much the worst American city to try to date and mate in. (From what we hear, Sydney also has a man drought.) But from what these very pretty girls were suggesting, Los Angeles was just as bad.
Single adulthood used to be a brief moment between adolescence and marriage; however today, according to one study, the median age of a first marriage is rising for both men and women, and singles make up 41 percent of American adults 18 and over. In places like New York City, Miami, or LA, singles reign and thousands of ambitious, good-looking men and women flock to the scene aiming to work hard and party even harder.

Why are so many people having difficulties finding the one?
