Not to mention there are plenty of things to keep us entertained here. 

So, I wasn’t surprised when I saw that a study conducted by WalletHub found Texas to be the second-best state for singles in the United States, behind Florida.

What factors contributed to Texas being ranked second overall? 

The wide variety of attractions like restaurants, fitness centers, and movie theaters helped propel the Lone Star State to the top of the list. It doesn’t hurt that there’s a bar on just about every corner here. There's nothing like a good old speakeasy to help find a little romance. 

Another factor that drove Texas’ ranking was the high number of people who are interested in online dating. So, if you’re looking for love in this neck of the woods, you probably want to download a few dating apps.
