Thought about Richmond/Raleigh but was concerned they were too small, especially given the above comment that everyone in the south is married or coupled up by my age, I figured a larger city like clt or Nashville would be better, but I may be too old even for those
Nashville is not really bigger than Raleigh as Durham could easily be part of the MSA. But that said I'm not sure either is better for you than Nashville.

26 is young and most people will not be ready to "settle down" in any major metro. Guys in that age are still having fun and women too are wrapped up in their careers. Somewhere like NYC or LA people generally aren't pairing off and getting married until their 30's (and often not until well into their 30's). NYC has a good dating scene, but, yeah, not many profesionals looking for marriage at 26.
I suppose the South could make sense then, cause most in that age range are looking for something serious lol. I personally wouldn't use that as a guide, but it could actually be true.

I think Nashville, Charlotte and Atlanta make the most sense for sticking to the SE, still having seasons somewhat, and being young/active while looking for serious dating partners.

Charlotte seems like it would make sense. I get the vibe its young with a lot of transplants, yet family oriented.
