Cincinnati good singles city? Go vote



Does Cincinnati deserve to be ranked among the best cities for singles? Or is it a bottom-dweller?

Forbes.com is giving its readers a chance to cast votes - with a thumbs up, a thumbs down or a shrug - on any or all of 40 cities for its Best Cities for Singles list, which will be published in early June.

The online votes will determine the "buzz" factor for each city. Six other categories will be taken into account in compiling the rankings: nightlife, culture, job growth, number of singles, cost of living alone and coolness.

Forbes.com's rankings have not been kind to Cincinnati in the past. The city finished dead last in 2001; and was No. 39 in 2002 and 2003 (ahead of only Pittsburgh).

To vote, go to forbes.com and search for "singles."
