LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Southern Nevada is a mixed bag when it comes to a new survey that ranks the best and worst cities for singles.

The financial website WalletHub compared more than 180 U.S. cities across 35 key indicators of dating-friendliness. The data set ranges from share of single population to number of online dating opportunities to nightlife options per capita.

Las Vegas comes in at a more than respectable 24th place. Helping Las Vegas the most was a 2nd place ranking in "Most Nightlife Options" and a 3rd place ranking in "Fun and Recreation".

As far as Henderson and North Las Vegas go, the findings weren't nearly as kind

Henderson placed all the way down at 148th. North Las Vegas? Even worse, at 154th.

The best city in Nevada for singles? Reno, ranked at 22nd. 

Currently, around 45 percent of the U.S. adult population is unmarried (never married, divorced or widowed), according to the latest U.S. Census Bureau estimates. WalletHub says the average cost of going out on a date is just over $102, so a city with a cheaper cost of living might be a better place for singles to mingle.

Atlanta topped the "best places", followed by Denver and San Francisco (ok, so much for the low cost of living thought).

As for as the "worst places"? It may be in paradise, but Pearl City, Hawaii took the bottom spot, followed by Pembroke Pines, Florida and Glendale, California.
