Looking for love in all the wrong places? Don't pack your bags just yet. The best place to find a Valentine may not be too far away. The nation’s top areas for singles go beyond merely identifying the places with the highest percentage of bachelors and bachelorettes. The financial factors count, too. After all, you want to meet someone who can afford to date, right?

For Zillow’s Valentine’s Day Index, areas with a large number of singles that have a high median income, as well as the density of bars and restaurants making up the metro’s social scene and (of course) housing affordability all were taken into account.

As tempting as it is to move, San Francisco, Calif., the nation’s tech capital, ranked number one. Why? With more than half of the population (52.6 percent) unattached, you’ll have a larger pool to choose from. And despite high rents, singles in the area are making 65 percent more money than the national average! Couple that with the high number of potential date options and you’ve got the perfect combination of disposable income and a vibrant social life. Second place was Las Vegas, third was Los Angeles, fourth was Boston, fifth was Hartford, sixth was Austin, seventh was Seattle, eighth was Baltimore, ninth was Richmond and tenth obviously Philly.

But you though it's warmer and no more Nor' Easters, you don’t have to move west to secure a date this Valentine’s Day. Zillow ranked all metro areas with a population over 750,000 and metros in every corner of the country scored pretty high. Check out the attached map to see the 10 best metros for singles.
