Crestview ranks 7th in state for singles looking for love

Published: Monday, March 17, 2014 at 12:58 PM.

"Crestview ... ranked 26th for singles within our dating age range, comprising 40.5 percent or 6,349 of its residents," Movoto content editor Randy Nelson stated in an online article. "You’re not going to meet these folks during your commute, though, as a mere .55 percent of them take public transportation.

"On the bright side, the city ranked 49th for bars with one for every 454 singles and 32nd for romantic restaurants, with one place offering perfect date night ambience for every 529 unattached residents."

The website didn't specify which area restaurant offered that "perfect date night ambience," but Mike McDuffie, who co-owns The Wild Olive with his wife Susan, likes to think Movoto had their establishment in mind.

"I'm not sure our place would be the place to meet anybody but it sure would be a nice place to come if they brought them here once they met them," he said.

Movoto ranked all 162 Florida cities with populations above 5,000 people.

"Each place was then given a score from 1 to 162 in the four criteria, with one being the best," Nelson stated in his article.
