Are you getting lucky this new year? Depends on where you live!
If you rang in the new year depressed and alone, ashing a limp cigarette into your party hat and moaning about the fact that you didn’t have anyone to kiss under the wilting (but still hopeful) mistletoe at midnight, chin up — it’s a new year! Although I hope your resolution isn’t to find a boyfriend (obviously, you want Mr. Right, not Mr. Right for Right Now), I can’t control what you do, where you go, or where you might move in the name of love (I moved to London for love in my infancy at the tender age of 23, so I can hardly talk). The Daily Beast has quite thoughtfully put together a hit list for 2012 of the best American cities to find a romantic partner in crime in the new year. They’ve factored in the number of singles per area using Census data from 2008-2010, ratio of women to men, cost of living data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the mental and emotional health of the respective cities residents from the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index. So in case you were wondering, “Well, who died and made those Beasts king of all romantic knowledge?” well, I’d say they’ve made a pretty strong case for their results. So get on with your bad selves this year and prepare to do some traveling…especially to Nebraska. Weird, I know, but trust me…those boys are smokin’ hot. On that happy note, I wish you loads of luck. I also wish you’d remove yourself from your sad slump and pop open a bottle of champagne STAT. Getting depressed over stupid boys — or even a lack of one — is so 2011.

This snowy city is a sensational place to meet a man…but heed my warnings before you head to Utah!
Park City is best known for housing Robert Redford‘s annual Sundance Film Festival, but it may go down in my books as one of the top places I’ve been thus far to meet men. But meeting men alone does not a relationship make, and after chatting with some local ladies, I became a little concerned — and here’s why. more…
Cosmo was right! Salt Lake City IS a great place to meet men!
Let me tell you a true story. I set off from Los Angeles last night with Park City, Utah as my final destination. Upon deplaning in Salt Lake City, however, I was barely off the plane when an incredibly good looking snowboarder asked for my number. But he wasn’t the only hot, boarder boy game in town — the airport was literally riddled with Burton-clad boys just itching to hit the slopes. BLISS!
Hear what Cosmopolitan magazine has to say. If they’re right, my next stop is…right here at home in Los Angeles?
Drum roll, please. This is big news! A new study conducted by the University of Michigan professes to know the best places to meet men in America. I’m a bit skeptical. OK, so the study — which is featured in this month’s issue of Cosmopolitan magazine — simply states where the odds for meeting men are most stacked in our favor. But that doesn’t take into account that these guys could be gay, fugly or completely nuts, right? Still, I’m ever so glad that Salt Lake City is my next lovetrekking destination! more…
