If you are single, you might want to consider Utah.

WalletHub ranked the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia for the best and worst places to live if you are single. Utah ranked as the 11th single-friendly state.

In order to determine the best states for singles, WalletHub used three factors: 1) Dating Economics, 2) Dating Opportunities and 3) Romance and Fun. The research team weighed the three categories on an 100 point scale with points dividing into subcategories under the three main categories.

Some of those subcategories included gender balance in the state, online dating opportunities, unemployment rate, restaurants per capita and more. (See the full list at wallethub.com.)

Utah rated lowest for restaurants and lowest share of single adults per capita coming in at dead last. However, Utah ranked second for most mobile-dating opportunities, third for most online-dating opportunities and second for highest gender balance of singles.

The top 10 states beating Utah were:

  1. Washington
  2. Colorado
  3. California
  4. Montana
  5. South Dakota
  6. Texas
  7. Hawaii
  8. Nevada
  9. District of Colombia
