Cleveland can be lucky for singles

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Cleveland is the city of love, that's according to real estate web site zillow.com.

In a ranking of the 150 largest cities Cleveland came in fourth for young single men seeking women.

"Of course it's hard. We actually met at work over the summer this past year and ever since we've been together. Things are going well," says Matt Peierson.

Pierson and his girlfriend Kelly have been dating exclusively for seven months, but he says it took some time finding that perfect match.

"She came along, it happened for a good reason," says Pierson.

"We just had an eye for each other and everything went really smooth," explains his girlfriend Kelly Ryman.

Zillow's scoring is based on several things including cities that are easy to walk around in, and the number of unmarried people under 35 -- as well as the ratio of single men to single women under 35.

"I'm rather surprised, says psychologist," Dr. Ellen Casper.

Casper says her single clients paint a different picture of what it's like to look for love in Cleveland.

"They find there to be such a minimum of venues where they can attend and meet a large section of people," said Dr. Casper.

So if you are a single guy living in the Cleveland area, don't be heartbroken. You have a shot of true love.

"When someone comes across that special you keep them," says Pierson.

By the way, according to Zillow, Cleveland raked third for women seeking women and eighth for men seeking men.

Top ten cities for men seeking women age 35-and-under:

1) WORCHESTER, MA

2) GLENDALE, CA

3) IRVING, TEXAS

4) CLEVELAND, OH

5)MEMPHIS, TN

6) TULSA,OK

7) SAN DIEGO, CA

8) PHILADELPHIA, PA

9) BUFFALO, NY

10) SPRINGFIELD, MA
