If you’re an American millennial looking for love, you might want to broaden your horizons. U.S. News & World Report just compiled a list of the best countries for dating and the United States is sitting in 21st place.
Business Insider explains that the ranking utilized data from a larger U.S. News & World Report survey on the best countries in the world, which compiled responses from 16,200 people from 60 countries on everything from political influence to fashion. In order to identify the best countries for dating, the company used survey data from 18- to 35-year-olds on the perceived friendliness, fun, sexiness, trustworthiness, and approachability of different countries.
The top three countries for dating, according to the survey, are Brazil, Italy, and Spain. Interestingly, none of those countries made the top ten on the broader Best Countries list. And while Brazil might be perfect for romance-seeking millennials, according to U.S. News & World Report, it’s just the 20th best country overall. Of course, all of these country rankings are subjective, and should be taken with a grain of salt—millennial dating rankings in particular—but the list is still a nifty resource for anyone who's single and ready to mingle.
Here are the top 25 countries for dating, according to the millennials polled:
5. New Zealand
16. Costa Rica
20. United Kingdom
21. United States
