Long Island Singles Ranked Most Desirable

New York Smash Magazine  

Dating app, The Grade, just released data revealing the most and least desirable singles in the New York/New Jersey area, and Long Island singles were ranked the hottest.

This data was gathered from over 500 New York users and 100,000 swipe actions on The Grade, by surveying the question, “Which of the following weekend destinations will you be visiting this summer?”.

The list is broken down by:

  • Like-rate (hotness ratio)
  • Percent of singles who plan to visit that destination (higher number equals higher chances)
  • Percent wanting a fling (AKA steamy nights to match those hot summer days)
  • Average age for each gender 

Check out the statistics below:

Most Desirable Singles: Long Island

  • At the top of the list are the women of Fire Island with a hotness ratio (like-rate) of 61%
  • Montauk men take the lead for the males with a 19% like-rate
  • Women 59% Like rate
  • Men 18% like rate

Least Desirable Singles: Jersey Shore

  • The Jersey Shore was also found to have some of the fewest singles attending, with only 6% of women and 10% of men surveyed reporting that they will be visiting the shore this summer
  • Jersey Shore women have a like-rate of 51% on the app (11% below the average)
  • Jersey Shore men faired even worse with an 11% like-rate (a drastic 32% lower than the average)
