Insurify's Best Cities for Singles Award Badge

There’s no rush to put a ring on it in these cities, because this is where singles are living their best lives.  

Like most annual events, cuffing season looked a little different in the United States this past year. But who says that you need a partner to thrive? In these cities, residents are flourishing while embracing the single life.

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, but couples are not the only ones who deserve to be celebrated. This year, Insurify is recognizing the best city for singles in each state to commend communities across the country for supporting their single citizens in thriving independently and having fun along the way.

Selection Process for Insurify’s 2021 Best Cities for Singles Awards

To identify the best cities for singles, the data science team at Insurify, a platform to compare home insurance, referred to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Numbeo, and Google Trends to identify the most singles-friendly cities. They assigned cities higher scores based on criteria including the proportion of unmarried adults; cost of living, including rent and restaurant meals; and interest in dating apps since 2015. These scores were then used to identify the most singles-friendly city in each state.
