The dating scene in the Hudson Valley is what it is but one city, in particular, is among the worst cities for singles in America.

According to a WalletHub study, Yonkers is not the place you'd want to be single. They've ranked #176 out of 182 cities when it comes to dating. The study looked at a variety of factors like the share of single population, nightlife options per capita and the number of online dating opportunities.

With the average cost of a date these days coming in at more than $100, does it make sense just to stay in and Netflix & chill? About 45% of adults are single according to the US Census Bureau, meaning there are more than 110 million single people in the country.
