Medford Low on List For Singles

MEDFORD, Ore. — Medford made a list which doesn’t boast well for the city’s singles.

There are plenty of rich resources in the Rogue Valley, but soul mates isn’t one of them. Beautiful vistas, romantic bed and breakfasts, and a well developed wine industry haven’t done much to draw in the single ladies or men.

Medford comes in Number 3 among the Top Ten Worst American Cities For Singles. Kiplinger.com says this is because 48.4% of the population is single, severely limiting the dating pool. Also, job opportunities and income level have an impact; the average household income is low, nearly 22% less than the American average.

As for date night, expect to shell out: $41.51 makes Medford the highest cost per date on the top ten list.
