Cleveland a Top Ten City for Love




The Daily Beast, which we're pretty sure does nothing but compile rankings, busted out a new one today: The Best Cities to Find Love.

Your humble town came in 9th on the list, proving once again that Cleveland is the best at everything. Factoring in singles, marriage and divorce rates, and some other stuff that doesn't really matter, the Beast came to the correct conclusion that the Forest City is amorous, full of willing partners, and filled with enough Midwestern charm and sexiness to give Paris a run at the City of Love title.

Via NewsNet5:

Some foster a culture that places a higher value on marriage, and some cities just have better looking people. That's all according to the website.

The Daily Beast also looked at the happiness factor of residents in each place, using the most recent Gallop Healthways Well Being Index , which measures physical and emotional health and healthy behaviors.

The top city for finding love was San Antonio, Texas, following by Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Austin, Texas.

Detroit and Jacksonville, Florida came in last.

So don't fret if you're alone and single this Valentine's Day weekend, put on your best striped shirt, head on down to W. 6th, and revel in the cascade of possible love connections. Or sit on the couch and eat Chinese food. Who knows? The delivery guy could be your soul mate.
