We've said it once, and we'll say it again — 2018 is already shaping up to be a wild ride in the dating community. Between astrology predicting who's most likely to cheat and a college student emailing an entire university to find his long-lost Tinder match, we're not sure why anyone bothers trying to follow "the rules". Newsflash: there are no rules! It's all about throwing caution to the wind in attempts of find your one and only. D'aw, see? We can be sweet when we want to be. That being said, the likelihood of finding your one and only at a coffee shop is pretty slim to none. Nowadays, it's all about the dating apps.

Speaking of dating apps, the popular dating site, Hinge chose 10 people from 10 cities to create a list of the 100 most eligible singles in The U.S. — the cities included: New York City, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta, Denver, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia.

We went ahead and boiled the list down to our top 10 singles (5 men, 5 women) from New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, and Chicago. In the hopes of educating (and passing judgement on strangers) we're going to detail what we find to be the most successful (or unsuccessful) about the following profiles.

To be honest, his response would have been less boring if he just went ahead and copy and pasted, "Sweat pants, hair tied, chillin' with no make-up on, that's when you're the prettiest, I hope that you don't take it wrong" from Drake's "Best I Ever Had".

Peanut butter & jelly is the perfect food — it's classic and low maintenance. For that reason alone, we commend her profile. Oh, and we suppose the "candid" city skyline shot is cute, if not totally overplayed.

San Francisco

Brunch, is without a doubt, 110% overrated. Most women (not to generalize) freakin' love brunch. This response is baiting, but not aggressive. 12/10 well done.

In a world of cats and dogs, she decided to go with a pig! For one reason or another, that sparks interest. Also, asking, "What was your pig's name?" is a great opening line. Making it really easy for us shy guys.

There's a dog and a rainbow — online dating challenge complete.

She's cute, she's funny, and that's a kick ass memoir title (non-published or otherwise).

There's a dog and he attended Harvard — another gentlemen who is absolutely killing the dating profile game. When in doubt, an ivy league education and cute pet will always intrigue women.

She flawlessly pulls off the blue, ombre hair and is forward about her love of homemade pizza. What's not to like?

Something like ice skating may seem arbitrary, but it's a refreshingly funny/honest response! Making someone laugh makes you 200% more likable — that's not a real state, but, hey! It's believable.

Ubers and Old Fashioneds? Talk about the most perfect answer ever. Plus, she's attended not one, not two, but three universities. Smart, funny, and pretty — we call that the Holy Trinity.

To see all 100 of the most eligible singles in The U.S., head on over to Business Insider.
