Best Places for Singles: Where Do Montana Towns Rank?
Dating is hard, especially when the cost of living is insanely high. When you factor in housing, everyday bills, and trying to put some money into savings, where are you supposed to find the extra cash to go on a date or two?
The average cost of a date is $90. I don't know if that seems super high or super low; I tend to just take myself on dates.
Regardless of the average cost of a date, there are other key factors that play a role in whether a town/city is good for singles or not. Does anywhere in Montana make the list for best places for singles? Here are some of the factors considered in this series of rankings:
How many single people are you competing with? Stop and think about it for a minute. How many single people do you know? Now put them all into a room. That room will either feel very crowded or you will feel like you can run in circles and not run into anyone.
The average price of a meal. Whether it's burgers, wings, pizza, or steak, this is most likely going to be the most expensive part of the date. Unless, of course, you like to throw a few back to calm the nerves; then drinks might be the most expensive part. Regardless, it's better to have lots of restaurant options to keep the prices reasonable.
Nightlife is hopping! Are there are a lot of things to do, like going to the movies, live local events, concerts, or a comedy bar? This will help determine if the city is the place for you to find the person of your dreams.
Wallethub ranked the Best Cities for Singles, but did any Montana cities make the list? Not only did Missoula come in at #17 for Best Cities For Singles, it also ranked as the city with the 3rd lowest average price of beer and wine.
Billings ranks at #107 out of 182. I guess that's better than not making the top 182 at all. You would think that Billings would rank a bit higher; they certainly have lots to do.
If you live in one of these cities, would you agree with their ranking as some of the best cities for singles?
