Study Says D.C. Has America’s “Drunkest Singles”


The D.C. dating scene is one that is often debated by singles all over the city.  Some say love is easy to find in D.C., while others swear that their future spouse can’t be discovered in the District.

Today, a study released by dating website “How About We” is offering up an intriguing revelation about D.C. singles on their site: That they drink more than singles in any other U.S. city.

“In recognition of St. Patrick’s Day and all those who’ll be drinking green beer this Saturday, we decided to take a look at how the drinking habits of singles vary across the United States,” Erin Scottberg wrote on How About We. 

The article, which you can read here, features an infographic which shows “the cities with the highest and lowest percentages of self-identified drinking levels, based on how people answer the ‘How much do you drink?’ profile question.”

According to the study, Washington, D.C. has the most “heavy drinking singles” on How About We, followed by New York and Chicago.

In the “light drinking singles” category, Las Vegas came in at number one, with Tampa and Phoenix coming in second and third respectively.

How do you feel about the study?
