Cure for the Valentine-less

New, 5 comments

Sweatin' your relationship status this Valentine's Day? Getting a bit sensitive as Mom's long-standing valentine but don't want it to end? You might consider moving two hours south to Bloomington, IL, the city Kiplinger has deemed the 2nd best for singles nationwide. Statistically, it kicks Chicago's ass. 52% of households are unmarried and the average date-night tab is only $25. Of course, the rise in cohabitation skews the numbers. Bloomington also registers with Richard Florida for its concentrated 'creative class'. But you might have to work for State Farm, the dominant employer. Whatd'ya do after landing that central Illinois soul mate? Move back to Chicago, of course. [Kiplinger]
