Crestview ranks 7th in state for singles looking for love

Wild Olive

Cherie and Charlie Lennard, though no longer single, agree that the Wild Olive could be the "restaurant with the date night ambience" that helped Crestview rank seventh of Movoto's "10 Best Places for Singles in Florida."

CRESTVIEW — The Hub City might be the Love City if an online real estate brokerage's website is accurate. Crestview ranks seventh of 50 Florida cities for singles looking for love.

Movoto, "the fun real estate research site," according to the company's public relations associate Chad Stiffney, compiled the list by comparing these data:

•Percent of population within the 18-44 “dating age range”

•Percent of population who take public transit, because "you’re not going to find love in your car"

•Number of singles per bar; "the fewer the better"

•Number of singles per romantic restaurant; "ditto"

Crestview was the only Northwest Florida city to make the top 10 list.
