Is Iowa City a great city to be single?
This writer from Kiplinger.com argues that it is, and if it was written on the Internet it must be true. She picked Iowa City as the tenth best city in America to be single in based on economic factors such as job security, the cost of a date night, and the amount of single people living in the area.
"Iowa City boasts the highest share of singles on our list. Attribute that statistic to the sprawling University of Iowa, which enrolls nearly 31,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students. But a strong economy and pleasant lifestyle draw newcomers to Iowa City, as well."
"Moderate midwestern living costs mean that both residing and dating in Iowa City are comfortably cheap."
I suppose I could take the fact that this article calls us cheap as something of a backhanded compliment, but that's just the price we don't have to pay for our pleasant lifestyle. It's better than ending up on this list.
As a sidenote: anyone else like that their date night calculation is two movie tickets plus a bottle of wine? I would go on that date.
What do you think? Is Iowa City a great city to be single? Or is that only for people of a certain age? Let us know in comments.
