In a special survey conducted exclusively for The Oprah Show, Men's Health magazine came up with the best cities in America to meet single men over 35. David Zinczenko, the magazine's editor in chief, says the results are based on six criteria: the ratio of unmarried men to unmarried women, divorce rates, fitness level, philanthropy, education level and attraction.

"We crunched the numbers every which way—up and down, all around," David says. "And tried to find the best way to up your chances of finding men who are single, straight, smart, who are emotionally available."
