The funniest singles: where to find a witty partner (and why it matters)
Where are Canada’s funniest singles?
In 2014, an EliteSingles study discovered that 97% of our members see humour as an essential part of a healthy relationship.2 Happily for them (and for anyone looking for a witty partner), our latest study has revealed something interesting: we now know where to find the funniest singles in Canada.
In our study, we looked at anonymous user data from 170,000 of the Canadians registered with our site. By analyzing how strongly these singles agreed with the question ‘I often make others laugh,’ we determined which people in Canada think they’re funny. We then averaged these scores out by area, allowing us to find the cities where funny singles congregate.3
And, once the scores were tallied, it turned out to be excellent news for the singles of Leduc, Alberta. Usually known for its lakes, oil economy and proximity to Edmonton, Leduc can now add another feather to its cap: the city is home to the funniest singles in Canada.
As well as determining the funniest city overall, the study uncovered the funniest place in each province. From BC to Newfoundland, here’s where to find the funniest singles near you:
- Alberta: Leduc
