5. Los Angeles, CA – Fans of Bravo already know that L.A.’s a prime spot for singles. In La-La Land, after all, everyone who isn’t actually in show business is dolling themselves up to be, or so the stereotype goes. In reality, Los Angeles promises an array of benefits to career-minded singles, from impressive average incomes to thousands of jobs in education, health care and the arts. Living among angels isn’t cheap, of course. As in other major cities, living costs and rent run well above the national norm. But income growth registered a solid 3% from 2005 to 2009, and the city’s 2011 employment growth beat Washington, Chicago and New York. Plus, L.A.’s singles ratio is the second-highest on the top-10 list.
