Looking for love? Well it appears that you are in one of the best places in Australia to be searching for your paramour.
According to the Budget Direct blog Simply Savvy, our fair city falls in the number two slot of its top five singleton cities, losing out to Port Macquarie.
“If you’re single and looking to meet that special someone, there’s a lot to like about Newcastle,” the post read.
“First things first, Newcastle has the largest population of singles of any city on this list (48.4%), proving the old adage that there really are plenty of fish in the sea.”
The blog also pointed to the fact that a date night out to the flicks is a much more attractive proposition in Newcastle given the average ticket is $12, while coffee prices are also lower than average at $4.45, making a romantic coffee rendezvous a great option for cash-strapped singletons.
While losing out to Port Macquarie, Newcastle towered over Hobart, Bendigo, and Cairns when it came to the best cities for people looking for love.
