Valentine’s day is just around the corner and if you’re unattached, it can be stressful. Actually, it can be stressful if you are attached, However, if you’re looking for love, according to a new survey from Thriving Center of Psychology, there is one town in New Jersey that made the top five for most singles in America. The results also show that Virginia really is for lovers.

According to polling data, Richmond, Virginia, is the city where you’ll find the most eligible singles.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, came in second, according to the poll, followed by Buffalo, New York, and Newark, New Jersey, with Cincinnati rounding out the top five. That’s Newark at number four on the list of most singles in the country. The only other New Jersey city to crack the top fifty is Jersey City at forty. NYC came in at thirty-seven with Philly placing seventeenth.

Here are some of the breakdowns, Minneapolis, Minnesota, ranks as the city with the most single men. The U.S. Census backs up the survey which says more than 101,000 men in the Gopher State’s city have never walked down the aisle.  Atlanta, Georgia, has the second-most number of bachelors, followed by Newark and then Pittsburgh.

When it comes to unattached women, Buffalo, New York, is the place to be for those looking for love ahead of Valentine’s Day, though Richmond, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and Cleveland are all high in single females.

The survey also found that more than one-third of singles have gone on fewer dates because of inflation. More than 25% are offering to split the cost of a date more, again, due to inflation. And “nearly half (49%) think it’s socially acceptable to stalk a date online before going out with them,” the survey found.

The poll also shares how many are hoping to find a date for Valentine’s day, how many are stressed over the holiday, and found that seventy-five out of a hundred think February 14th is overrated. Check out the full survey here.
