Wow...aparently love is in the air up in Milwaukee. These lists kill me though, I don't understand how cities are able to jump around so much on these things from one year to the next. Can a city completely rearrange itself to be more appealing to young singles within the course of a year, haha? I just don't think there's really much validity in any of these things. I'm pretty sure that Cleveland wasn't even on this list during the past 3 years...and that Providence was something like #40 last year or the year before that.

Change indie bands with country bands and you just described Lubbock (Texas Tech), San Marcus (Texas State), and College Station (Texas A&M). I decided to go to college in Houston instead of those towns so I could avoid that scene.
Man, I would have loved to be a part of that scene in college. I love the whole texas music scene thing. Nothing like that up here in Michigan.

I guess the grass is always greener on the other side.

Replace Milwaukee with Minneapolis and the list looks about right.

Milwaukee has way more to do metro wide than Minneapolis and is closer to big daddy Chicago and party town Madison.

Minneapolis has buildings, theatre, and a big mall. Minneapolis is more isolated.

Yeah, or not. Milwaukee is right where it belongs.

How sad, even Buffalo was rated as being better for singles than MSP.

20 somethings cannot go wrong in Chicago if they can afford it. It's become a bit pricey

if you can afford it NYC, Chicago, SF and DC are all great

places that are a little more pocket friendly that are great would be:

boston, philly, seattle, portland, austin, atlanta, baltimore, denver

then a step down to places like phoenix, dallas, houston, orlando, nashville

New Orleans is cheap compared to most and has tons to do.

Also lots of opportunity for young people with hurricane recovery and all. Lots of new businesses taking over where old businesses were.

LOL!!! Like what, getting drunk waaaaay faster because the Milwaukee area is even more depressing to live in than the Minneapolis area?

And the fact that Chicago is closer doesn't really mean much being those living in the Minneapolis area with money can drive or fly to Chicago anytime they want.

Haha. I knew you would like my statement.

Buffalo still has people in their 20s living there?

Total number of people Age 20 - 29 per metro area (2008 Estimates):
Minneapolis – St. Paul 218,593
Milwaukee – 98,330
Buffalo – 79,127

Others:
Atlanta – 366,805
Boston – 305,372
Seattle – 228,490
Denver – 176,525
Portland – 148,940
Kansas City – 131,508
Charlotte – 112,952
New Orleans – 73,444

C'mon, Chicago is (at least) a 6 hour car ride from the Twin Cities, while it's a mere 90 minutes by car or train from Downtown Milwaukee to Downtown Chicago. It's only 30 minutes to Kenosha, the northernmost suburb of Chicago.

What orifice did you pull these numbers from? That means a mere 5% of residents in the Greater Milwaukee area are in their 20's, which I find incredibly hard to believe.

Milwaukee - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Milwaukee has one of the highest per capita student populations in North America, ranking 6th among U.S. and Canadian cities in number of college students per 100 residents, according to a January 2000 study from McGill University."
