You are good looking, you have a great personality and all of your friends tell you that you're a great catch. Okay maybe not  ALL of your friends but the majority of them wonder why you're still single. It was 10 months after the end of my last relationship that I started dating someone new. 10 months is a long time, was I just not ready? was the dating pool super shallow, did COVID cause it to dry up? or was it that I live in Idaho? Before you get offended let me explain, Idaho is number 29 on the list of 2021's Best & Worst States For Singles. Now you have the answer to that question you've asked yourself a 100 times... Is it me or is it everyone else? in this situation it's kind of everyone else. If you lived in Florida which is ranked first on the list them I would say that if you are single... it's definitely you. Hahaha. Check out the methodology and the full list below.
