Boston named one of the "Top 10 Solo Cities" by Sperling's Best Places

Sperling's annual study of "Best Places" this year concluded that Boston had one of the largest concentrations of single, widowed and divorced men and women aged 25-64 in the country. Cities in this year's ranking include:

1 San Francisco 44.7%
2 Detroit, MI 44%
3 New York, NY 39.8%
4 Boston, MA 39.2%
5 New Orleans, LA 39.1%
6 Los Angeles, CA 37.7%
7 Fort Lauderdale, FL 37.2%
8 Las Vegas, NV 37%
9 Miami, FL 36.9%
10 Albuquerque, NM 36.8%

While I don't quite get Detroit or Albuqurque - the rest of the Top 10 Solo Cities are fun places. Seeing Boston listed in such a context is a positive - unlike the list of least single cities which included places such as El Paso, TX; Salt Lake City, UT; and Poughkeepsie, NY. Ugh...
