With big cities and charming beach towns, hundreds of miles of gorgeous coastline and year-round warm weather, we could name about a hundred reasons why moving to Florida is a good idea. And if you’re currently on the hunt for a new flame, here’s reason #101: A new study claims your chances of meeting someone special just might be better in the Sunshine State.

The report, produced by personal finance site WalletHub, took into account 28 key indicators that could affect your dating life, from the number of singles in a state to the opportunities for romance and fun. Florida ranked high on both counts, with a plethora of eligible bachelors and bachelorettes and high online dating engagement. Additionally, the balmy peninsula holds plenty of options for first-date fun, with a high number of restaurants, movie theaters, bars, parks, and—of course—beaches per capita. (What says romance better than the ubiquitous long walk on the beach, right?)

Still, the positives alone were enough for the state to narrowly squeeze out a victory over its second and third place rivals, California and Texas, respectively.
