CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Finding that one special person is no easy task. According to Forbes Magazine, Cincinnati is one of the worst places to be single. Back in 2004, the financial magazine rated our fair city second to last of the best cities to be single in. But many young professionals say that's not the case today.
When Queen City singles step out on the town, they do it in style. But taking a shot at love can be tough. The hardest part is often starting the conversation. And yes, turns out that sometimes pick-up lines can work.
"A guy tonight, he was like, 'Oh, you're super cute, see you later, bye, and I was like come back." Melanie Pugh said while inside a local bar. "Come back. No, you're cute, we'll talk to you."
But usually pick-up lines don't work.
"If it's do you have wings because you just fell out of heaven?" Brooke Eby said. "I mind that."
And best places for a first date?
Many guys we spoke with told us a movie. But the ladies all disagreed. They suggested going out for dinner and then doing something unique.
Restaurants with late night happy hours and themed-events like Black Finn are great places to mix and mingle, but you can also find love during the day and it won't cost you a cent or any sleep.
