Hey, another somewhat scientific survey that includes Houston!! Let's dig in!!
In this case, a website no one has ever heard of called Nerd Wallet has put together various stats to determine which American cities are the best places to live in for single men and single women.
You're a single dude in Houston? Forget it -- you're screwed. Or, to be more precise, you're not getting screwed by the opposite sex.
But if you're a single female Houstonian: ah, the world's your oyster.
Nerd Wallet used three sets of data -- including the price of a movie ticket, 12-inch Pizza Hut pizza and 6-pack of Heineken, something we believe they stole directly from Einstein's notebooks of the Theory of Relativity -- and determined that Houston is the seventh-best American city for single women. Single women who like Pizza Hut pizza and Heineken, not to put too fine a point on it.

(The data also included the price of the cholesterol-fighting drug Lipitor, so, ummm, rock on, ladies.)
"Houston has a great ratio of men to women (115 men for every 100 women), a low cost of living and a low unemployment rate, making it a great city for single women," Nerd Wallet says. "Houston is known for its delicious Tex-Mex food, so the city has plenty of dinner date options."
Houston also is filled with Houston men, an issue Nerd Wallet fails to address. But what girl's dream date would not begin with a knock on her door from a pudgy high-cholesterol dude wearing an Arian Foster jersey and carrying cheap chain pizza?
