Boise singles! Do you agree with the headline? Boise, Idaho is one of the Top 100 cities in America for us singles? Stats from a recent survey say yes-- it's true.

I'm single and I love it-- I have a busy work schedule and a pretty cool cat to raise at home. Believe it or not, I haven't been on an actual DATE in well over three years. Just recently I went on my first in a LONG time and while I felt it went great, I couldn't believe how ridiculously nervous I was leading up to it. Maybe I was just a little rusty.

Apparently Boise isn't so bad for us singles after all. Would you agree with that?

This recent survey has Boise, Idaho coming in at #98 in the country. The methodology behind the survey is interesting. It includes four points:

  • How satisfied are you with the dating opportunities in your city
  • How satisfied are you with the social scene in your city
  • Dating affordability-- how expensive are restaurants and outing destinations?
  • Percentage of singles as noted by the Census Survey

Apparently once you mix all of those things together, Boise makes the cut for the Top 100. An interesting figure for our city? Only 18%, according to these results, were satisfied with dating.

The top 5 cities in the nation per these findings were:

  • Atlanta, GA
  • Madison, WI
  • Washington, DC
  • Bloomington, IN
  • New Orleans, LA
