Are you a guy looking for love this Valentine’s Day, but not having much luck in the city where you live? If the answer is yes, then look no further. Apartment List narrowed down the list of places you need to check out for a great dating scene. We surveyed over 9,000 single renters, and have compiled the list of the best cities for dating as seen by men.

Our survey asked single male renters, “How would you rate your current city or neighborhood for opportunities to date?” The possible responses were: Very Satisfied, Somewhat Satisfied, Neutral, Somewhat Unsatisfied, Very Unsatisfied. Curious where men are the most satisfied? Below you can find the compiled list of the top cities where men were the most satisfied with the dating scene in their city.

Charlotte, NC ranked high overall, but men, in particular, found it to be the best city for dating opportunities. Charlotte scored very high on our renter survey for social life as well, so it's not surprising to see it atop this list.   Find the top ten cities for dating for men below. If you want to know where your city ranks, check out the full report here.
