Dating in LA? Santa Monica Tops the List of Favorite Dating Spots

Los Angeles is a giant suburb filled with fickle daters who believe that being geographically undesirable (G.U.) is at the top of the list.

In a recent Match.com survey, the online dating site found out that heading to the beach, preferably Santa Monica, is now the favorite local spot for single daters.

The survey also revealed that 45% believed that Santa Monica had the best singles to choose from and that Brentwood, typically considered a hot Westside locale, is now at the bottom of the list.

It’s no surprise that the 1000 singles surveyed preferred the Lakers (42%) over the Clippers (5%), but the Stanley Cup Championship did help the Los Angeles Kings rank in second place (32%) for the hottest sports teams in the city.

Wondering where to take your date? 33% of those surveyed selected The Getty Museum, where admission is free and 27% said to head to the Santa Monica Pier, where you just might want to ride the ferris wheel at night cuddled up with your date.
