Among the millions of travelers heading home this week are many who will turn to dating apps to make a hometown connection.
Let’s break it down by city.
The odds may be stacked against some cities this week; those heading to Chicago and Houston will be among the highest number of dating app users in the — but they’ll find the number of men using the hookup apps outnumbers the number of women two to one. For an even gender balance they better head to Maine.
Don't count on Arkansas — it’s the U.S. state with least amount of people using dating apps, just seven percent of all that state's mobile users. Maryland and Nebraska may be where the chances are greatest to meet the most people. Those states are tied in a ranking of the states with the largest pools of dating app users (13 percent).
StartApp took a city vs. city look across the country to pinpoint where the app dating struggle may be real. Across the U.S., the majority of dating app users are men (63 percent) compared to women (37 percent).
The states where the balance of dating app use between men and women is most even are Maine, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, and Iowa.
The states where men outnumbered the women by a large amount were Alaska, New Jersey, California, Washington, and New York.
In California, the pool of dating app users was nearly twice as many than New York.
Ultimately, San Francisco may be where dating app users can find the best connections. The city has the highest proportion of all dating app users who also use travel apps — 42 percent when the average across America for dating app users is only 11 percent. The city also takes the lead in dating app users who stay current on events with an impressive 39 percent of dating app users also having news apps — over three times higher than the average American dating app user.
