NEW YORK, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- With Valentine's Day looming, The Daily Beast measures America's largest cities, to find the best, and worst, places to find a mate. The clinical way to defy the mate-hunting odds, as Janis Spindel who runs top matchmaking firm Serious Matchmaking Inc. told The Daily Beast, boils down to one thing: location.

We entered every U.S. city with more than 200,000 residents into our computers, then dumped in data surrounding five criteria: singles ratio, social life, emotional health, marriage ratio and divorce ratio.

    At the top:
      1) Long Beach, CA
      2) Anaheim, CA
      3) Santa Ana, CA
      4) Seattle, WA
      5) Miami, FL
      6) New Orleans, LA
      7) Riverside, CA
      8) Irving, TX
      9) Austin, TX
     10) Garland, TX
    At the bottom:
    104) Lexington, KY
    103) Memphis, TN 
    102) Stockton, CA
    101) Corpus Christi, TX
    100) Winston-Salem, NC
     99) Phoenix, AZ
     98) Detroit, MI
     97) Modesto, CA
     96) North Las Vegas, NV
     95) Anchorage, AK 

These rankings are universal, designed to be neutral in relation to gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or age.
