Online geographic dating

The strains of “Pomp and Circumstance” are fading from the air, which means it’s time for lots of folks to figure where, exactly, they’re going to live next. If you’re feeling clueless, you can enlist the help of the biggest experts around: U.S. Census Bureau.

Dwellr uses data from the American Community Survey to help you find an area that’s right for you, and to research areas that you’re considering. Dwellr matches your age, relationship status, desired occupation and other profile items to find the perfect city for you. You can also look up how well you match particular cities if you need a quick read on your compatibility, or if you just want to find out more about your neighborhood. You’re probably not going to find the city of your dreams solely from dwellr, but it’s not bad for a first pass. Think of it as online dating for geographic areas. Free, for Android and iOS devices.
