Wyoming is known for being a great place to live for a lot of reasons. Things that normally jump to the top of the list are outdoor activities, college sports, great food, and friendly people.

The dating scene however is almost always absent from that list.

A new study released by personal finance website, WalletHub, may change that though. Their "Best & Worst Cities for Singles (2023)" has not one, but two Wyoming cities in the top 100. Both Casper and Cheyenne made the list. Casper rated higher, landing at the 46th spot overall, with Cheyenne coming in at 79th.

The WalletHub study stated:

To help America’s singles find love, WalletHub compared more than 182 U.S. cities across 35 key indicators of dating-friendliness. Our data set ranges from the share of the population that is single to the number of online dating opportunities to the average price for a two-person meal.

Some of the key metrics that Casper scored well on included:

  • Economics Rank - 27th
  • Fun & Recreation - 133th
  • Dating Opportunities - 42th

Cheyenne's key metrics were actually pretty similar:

  • Economics Rank - 43rd
  • Fun & Recreation - 170th
  • Dating Opportunities - 50th

One of the most surprising things on the study was how high our neighbors in Colorado ranked. The Mile High City, Denver, ranked 3rd overall. Wow!

Whether you trust in the validity of the study or not, WalletHub did also list some awesome tips for singles, which included:

  • Be open and honest
  • Pick a city that appeals most to your interests
  • Try online dating
  • Choose low-cost first date options
  • Explore social clubs
  • Work on improving yourself

That fact that two Wyoming cities scored so high overall should make Wyoming singles feel better about their future.
