Your Dream City For Singles

When it comes to being single and meeting new people, I’m a big believer in shaking up your routine – and there’s no better way to do that than with a change of scenery.

According to SoloTravelPortal.com, nearly 35 million American adults have taken a vacation by themselves. A recent glance at Forbes.com’s 2009 list of the Top 40 U.S. Cities for Singles got me to thinking about the dating scene outside of my hometown – and curious about where other singles would go on the prowl outside of their zip code.

So, Single Gal In The City readers, what do you think? If you could pick any U.S. city (other than your hometown) to explore as a single, which would it be? Post a comment here or email me at SingleGalInTheCity@gmail.com.

Now through January 31st, 2010, everyone who responds will be automatically entered to win a fun and flirty SingleTease t-shirt, and one reader will receive a $15 iTunes gift card.

I would choose to explore NYC. I lived there for a few years after college (about 8 years ago) and had a serious boyfriend at the time so I didn't have the opportunity to date. I would love to meet some of the diverse and interesting men of NYC, go on dates at some very cute spots (Central Park, museums, cafes and restaurants) and then chat with my girlfriends about it all over Sunday brunch.

I'd vote for my hometown of Austin, TX (#11 on the list). It has such a laid-back, friendly vibe, so it's easy to meet people. There's always something fun to do outdoors or live music to listen to -- good opportunities to meet interesting people.

Plus, anyone who chooses to spend their life in an amazing city like Austin, is OK by me.

Thanks, Ladies! I've heard great things about Austin, and it's on my short list of cities I'd love to visit in 2010.

I would like to explore Austin also! I haven't been since I was a kid, but I have heard awesome things about the music and dating scenes. Besides, who can resist cowboy eye candy?
