The Best Suburbs In Melbourne For Single Ladies To Find A Single Guy

Have you been watching The Bachelor and wishing you could go on your own search for love? Do you dream of being one of those girls lined up in front of Matty J?

Well you don't need to go on a TV show to find love. GfK ConsumerLife Australia has crunched the numbers and identified the suburbs with the most single males aged 20-34 with an above average income in Melbourne. 

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the inner north turned up the most eligible bachelors with Cremorne, Richmond, Collingwood, Carlton and Fitzroy apparently filled with single guys. 

“The truism has been proven that eligible bachelors are most likely to be found in the inner city suburbs,” said GfK Research Manager, Serena Mann. “This is likely a function of both income, and wanting to be close to work and the ‘action’.”

If you're looking to meet the love of your life, these are the top 8 best ways to bump into an eligible bachelor:

Exercising: Nearly one in four single males exercises at least weekly. “But not just at the gym,” adds Mann. “They’re also on hiking trails, running tracks, local parks and particularly dog parks because more than two in five Australian bachelors have a dog.”

Going to cafes, bars, and pubs more frequently: Single men are significantly more likely to go out weekly to bars, clubs and cafes than similarly suited females, who are more likely to only go out monthly.

Throw a house party: One in three singles say they entertain guests at home weekly, and over half will entertain at least once a month.

Going to the supermarket: yes those rumours about the bananas in the trolley may be true. Three in four singles will top up their pantries on a weekly basis. Singles are more likely to be at the grocery store later in the day after work, when it’s less busy.

Going to a sporting event: Nearly half (48 per cent) of eligible bachelors are going to some sort of football or other game at least monthly.

Volunteering time: Half of eligible single males are giving back to the community and say they participating in volunteer work at least once a month.

Getting cultured: Nearly one in four eligible singles say they go to a museum or art exhibit at least monthly.

Going to a concert: One in five bachelors say they go to a concert or show weekly, and one third go at least once a month; significantly more often than single women.
