The following is not coming from me. It's from a new study that has done all the due diligence anyone could ask for about New Yorkers and dating and *ehem* "the apps".  

Did you know that New York ranks as one of the nation's top daters, with residents searching for "love" 620,528 times per month? That's right. PER MONTH.

Is this shocking? I do not know.

The top 5 states out of 50 are as follows: Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, North Dakota and Vermont. Mississippi is last place at 50th.

Where does New York rank, you ask?

New York ranks 13th, with (as mentioned above) average monthly search volume of 620,528. New York's top search terms are "okcupid" and "zoosk login".

Of course those are the top search terms. Along with "what is love bombing?", "how to tell you're dating a narcissist" and "who should pay on the first date?"
