These New Jersey cities have the most single people
Dating can be hard (so I hear, I’ve been married a long time) and one of the biggest hurdles is finding single people to date. A report says that two New Jersey cities make the list of cities with the most single people.
The two towns that made the list from New Jersey are the state’s two largest cities: Newark and Jersey City. Not only was Newark on the list, but it was all the way up at #4; Jersey City was not quite so high, but it came in at #40, which isn’t too shabby.
Newark has the third-highest number of single men and the sixth most of single women.
There was a lot more in the report than just the list of cities with the most singles; it also addressed questions about dating in 2023 and what is and isn’t acceptable.
Background checks before a date
The report was issued by the psychology website Thriving Center for Psychology.
When it comes to researching a date, 65% of women think it’s socially acceptable to stalk a date online, while only 34% of men do. Fifty-one percent of women admit to researching a date online while only 25% of men have done that. Overalll, 18% have run a background search on a date.
People who like being single
It turns out that the overwhelming majority of single people are content with being single: 69% in fact.
A staggering 91% say that they enjoy their independence and 58% enjoy the saving money aspect of being single. But lest we think that single people have it all figured out, 47% fear being alone forever.
The data on the cities was culled from U.S. Census information, and the dating questions were gathered by interviewing over 1,000 people.
