Conquering the dating scene is not an easy feat. Hours spent swiping through dating apps and countless awkward dinner conversations can start to take their toll.

Thankfully, Colorado has a high success rate when it comes to matters of the heart.

Unfortunately, Northern Coloradans looking for love will have to travel farther south to make the most of the dating pool.

According to a new study from BestPlaces, Colorado Springs is the second-best city for dating in the U.S. due to its abundance of bars and restaurants.

It's not so great if you're older, though. Available singles tend to be between 18 to 24 years old.

If you don't want to make the two-hour drive to Colorado Springs, don't despair — there is one other Colorado city that made the list: Denver.

BestPlaces ranks the Mile High City, which received a similar honor from WalletHub last year, as the 16th-best dating city in the U.S. You'll still have to traverse the dreaded I-25, but it might be worth it if you're looking to update your single status.

While Northern Colorado cities like Fort Collins, Greeley, and Loveland did not make the list, Front Range singles could have it worse. According to the website, cities like Charlotte, Houston, Pittsburgh, and Atlanta have some pretty defective dating.
