With Beyonce off the market, are you looking for a single lady? Maybe you’d even like to put a ring on it (eventually).
Well, look no further than these U.S. cities. After scouring the 2010 census for data regarding city populations — the total numbers, the percentage of people who are women and the percent who are single — we were able to figure out where all of these elusive single ladies are.
