Best cities for singles: Anywhere but mom's couch


Our friends at Forbes have put out their annual list of the "Best cities for singles." San Francisco was the top city last year, but Atlanta crowded it out because of lower cost of living and job growth.

While job growth and living above the poverty level are certainly nice when you are a young single-something, in reality you are mainly looking for other singles to make yourself less single (or something.)

The rest of the top five include a bizarre tie between Dallas and Minnesota (maybe depending on your political affiliation you prefer one to the other.) and our nation's capitol, Washington, D.C.
