According to a new study by WalletHub, 45 percent of adults in the United States are unmarried. To help singles find love, WalletHub’s analysts looked at more than 180 cities across the U.S. and compared them on 32 key factors such as dating-friendliness, share of single population, online dating opportunities and more.
