Buffalo was recently ranked the number one city for single people in 2022 by LendingTree, thanks to metrics like the percentage of people who aren’t married and median single-household income - so you’d think the odds of meeting someone else who’s looking and available would be high. Unfortunately, that’s not the case for many single Western New Yorkers. 

Dating apps have taken over the universe. Today, you’d be hard-pressed to find a single person in their 20’s and 30’s who doesn’t have a profile on sites like Tinder, Bumble, or Hinge. Dating apps have made it easy to casually connect with someone to potentially start a relationship. Unfortunately, as all single people know - dating apps also come with a lot of baggage and headaches.

If you’re tired of the games played on dating apps, it can feel hopeless to meet someone in person in the real world - but the good news is that it’s not impossible!

Meeting someone new, whether it’s a new friend or a new partner, takes some effort - but thankfully, Western New York is filled with tons of friendly (and single!) people. Being single in Buffalo isn’t easy, but if you decide to embark on one of the activities below, you can find that it sure can be fun!

We’ve rounded up a list of ideas of places that single people in Buffalo can check out to potentially meet their new Buffalove - in REAL life, not through a dating app profile.
