Where in the world is best for single women to date? New study reveals international dating habits

From London to Toronto, Hong Kong and Sydney, a new survey delving into international dating habits claims to have found the best city in the world for single women.

Dating app Coffee Meets Bagel is described by its founders, three sisters from New York City, as the anti-Tinder.

It polled over 7,000 of its members to discover where in the world all the decent daters have gone.

And the answer? It’s complicated.

Women living in Sydney have reported having a much easier time of it on the dating scene (we assume this means greater success meeting nice, funny people), compared with those living in Toronto or New York, for example.

But among the men daters polled, apparently Hong Kong is the best place to meet a match.

London meanwhile, where the sisters have most recently launched the Coffee Meets Bagel app, came in at the number two best destination for single women (number four for men), and also the place where people said they were prepared to spend the most money.

London was also the place where people were reported to be the most sexually adventurous, with 36% of women and 66% of men saying they’d have sex on the first date.

Comparatively, just 10% of women in Hong Kong voted the same way, and 15% in New York.

San Francisco however, appears to be where the women with the most confidence live.

Over a quarter of the San Fran women polled considered themselves to be ‘extremely eligible’, beating the number of women in all other cities who saw themselves in the same way.

Take a look at the full results in the infographic below. Do they match with your own dating experiences?
