Being single in Iowa is better than being single in Mississippi!

There's been a lot of focus on couples lately (thanks to Valentine's Day), so let's stop and take a second to talk about the single people out there. WalletHub ranked all 50 states based on "23 key indicators of dating-friendliness," to find out which states are the best and the worst for singles. Fortunately, Iowa ranked in the top half of the list!

Iowa came in at #21 overall, and came in 4th for the "dating economics" category. Our ranking for "dating opportunities," though? Not so great. We ended up in 38th place! Ouch!

Here are the top 5 states for the single people out there:

  1. Washington
  2. Colorado
  3. California
  4. Montana
  5. South Dakota

On the OTHER end, here are the worst states for singles:

  1. Mississippi
  2. Alabama
  3. Arkansas
  4. West Virginia
  5. Alaska
