Several of my single friends say its so difficult to find someone to date muchless find a serious partner. Well, that may be but if you live in Florida, you have lady luck on your side. 

WalletHub.com did some research to find which states are the best, and worst for singles, judging all 50 states on 28 key indicators of dating-friendliness, breaking them down into three categories opportunities, economics and romance, and fun.

So, if you’re single and looking for love where should you move? Well, apparently Florida, which earns an overall rating of 68.11 out of 100, and ranks at three for both opportunities and romance and fun, although it’s at 34 for economics, which means, while you may find love there, it’s may not come cheap.
