Where is it easier to find love in the United Kingdom – online or offline?

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

Our queries list consisted of the most popular dating apps and general phrases, such as “dating website”. To make the comparison fair, we juxtaposed the number of queries with the latest data on the population in individual cities.

Where in the UK is it easier to find love online

After looking closely at the data of the most popular search engine in the United Kingdom, we found out that citizens of Glasgow, Liverpool and Bristol are most likely to find their significant other online. Internet users visit dating websites in those cities more frequently than the country average.

On the other hand, citizens of Bradford, London and Cardiff look for love online the least. In those cities, 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 cities looks like:
