Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, and you may be thinking to yourself; I really need to find a date.

There's a lot that goes into dating and there are a lot of different ways to get started.

You could take the swipe left swipe right option of popular dating sights, or you could do it the old-fashioned way and meet someone in real life.

But I have lots of friends who have had a good amount of success and happiness using dating sights too.

Where you live may also play a big role in your dating life.

If you love somewhere that's cheaper, you'll be able to go on more dates for less money which may look appealing to a potential other half.

Then again, if you live in a place that's a little more expensive but offers a lot for you to do, that's not bad either.

Recently, WalletHub released its list of best and worst cities for singles, and Jersey didn't do too bad this year around!

New Jersey got an honorable mention as the 10th best state in the country for dating.

It's also worth noting that dating is a numbers game, and Jersey has a huge population for the size of our state so the numbers are good too.
