East Lansing: Date City, USA

By  | 

The city of East Lansing is a great place to be looking for love, according to a recent study that names the city the best place to find a date.

The study, done by Sperling's Best Places named East Lansing, MI and State College, PA, home of Penn State University, as the best cities in the country to find a potential mate.

Both are big college towns, and the study says that's a key element. Michigan State University enrolls nearly 45,000 students, bringing the average age of residents to 28.6 years old. Many of those in that 18-34 year old age group are single, and looking for dates. The study also says East Lansing is home to many bars and restaurants, as well as many other social activities.

Psychology professors on campus agree with the study's findings. They say a large dating pool opens up a lot of opportunities for love.

But you don't have to live in a big college town to find that perfect mate. Atlanta, GA, Washington, D.C., and West Hollywood, CA also made the top 10.
