In a state where marriage seems to be on the brain of every high-schooler, there are still a lot of singles looking for love.

Some of the primest hunting ground, it appears, is right here in Utah — but maybe not where you expected.

Both St. George and Orem have made the Top 15 list of best small cities for singles, according to a ranking by datingadvice.com.

St. George came in at No. 15, with 30,727 singles and amazing outdoor recreation opportunities. What the folks at datingadvice.com may not realize is that many of those singles are likely widows or widowers, but if you're looking for love at any age, it may be the spot for you.

Orem ranked No. 4 with 41,242 singles and draws such as the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival. However, that number of singles may still include the mass of guys and gals waiting for their Mormon missionary to return home.

The No. 1 small city was Newton, Mass., with 43,986 singles available.
