Utica and Albany both tied for second-best for single women, with 120 unattached men for every 100 bachelorettes.
In Syracuse, the numbers are slightly more even, with 115 unattached men for every 100 women -- which works out to 87 single ladies for every 100 men.

Honestly I can't stand Los Angeles anymore and am ready to escape.
