PicodiFebruary 9, 2023 analysts checked the statistics of searches related to finding a significant other online and created a ranking of the most online regions.

Where in the Philippines is it easier to find love online?

After looking closely at the data of the most popular search engine in the Philippines, we found out that citizens of Central Visayas, Metro Manila and Davao Region are most likely to find their significant other online. Internet users visit dating websites in those regions more frequently than the country average.

On the other hand, citizens of Bicol, MIMAROPA and ARMM look for love online the least. In those regions, finding a significant other offline – in the street, at work or at social parties – is most likely more prevalent.

This is what the ranking of all regions looks like:
