Attention Minneapolis dudes: Don’t blame yourselves for your dates that went horribly wrong last weekend. Blame the city you live in.
According to a study by the online dating site AYI, the women in Minneapolis just aren’t all that into you. In fact, we ranked in the top five for notoriously picky daters.
The dating data website examined more than 450,000 online interactions of women between the ages of 18 and 99 to discover the locations where singles were least likely to respond to online dating messages. According to AYI, Minneapolis has the third pickiest women in the country, behind Brooklyn and Detroit and ahead of Cincinnati and Los Angeles.
So, from our standpoint, fellas, you have two choices:
1). Simplify. Try a non-cheesey line like, “Where are you from originally?” According to AYI, that pickup consistently receives the highest response rate.
2). Move. We hear guys may have an easier time finding dates in cities such as Miami, St. Louis, Las Vegas, Portland, and—not surprisingly—the land of Snooki: Jersey City.
