Ladies, you might want to move to a smaller city in order to find that Prince Charming.
According to a survey conducted by Badoo, the world’s largest dating network, Manchester has the third lowest concentration of single men in the UK with 42%, just ahead of Cardiff at 38% and London at 34%.
The survey of 9 million UK users found that Hull has the highest number of single men (51%), closely followed by Coventry (49%) and Newcastle (48%).
Joelle Hadfield, a spokesperson for Badoo said:
The research highlights that smaller cities offer a greater opportunity for single women to meet a potential partner… Men in smaller cities may actually put a bit more effort into meeting their match because of potentially believing they face a much greater challenge in finding love, due to lower population numbers.
So there you go, singletons of Manchester. Perhaps it might be worth taking a trip to a smaller town this weekend?
