Charlotte ranked #18 city for singles by Forbes Magazine

Posted on 5 Sep 2008 by Justin Ritchie

In their yearly “Best Cities for Singles” listings, Forbes Magazine has rated Charlotte the 18th best cities for singles. After being removed from the rankings in 2007 along with the other NC cities of Greensboro and Raleigh-Durham for having too little residents in its center city, Charlotte now qualifies along with the other 40 cities on the list.

Also highlighting the QC, Forbes has tabbed Charlotte as the top city for online dating, the #2 city for “Cost of Living Alone” and the #8 city for job growth. Hurting the city was its last-on-the-list ranking for nightlife and the very low rating of culture.

Topping the list at number one was Atlanta, while San Francisco, Dallas, Minneapolis and Washington DC rounded out the top five.
