Single ladies on the quest for eligible bachelors may be in luck - if they're living in the Windy City.

According to a survey conducted by Rent.com, Chicago ranks sixth on a list of Top 10 cities for bachelorettes. The list included:

  1. Phoenix
  2. Seattle
  3. Austin, Texas
  4. Denver
  5. Washington, DC
  6. Chicago
  7. Los Angeles
  8. Las Vegas
  9. New York
  10. San Jose, Calif.

The site attributes the Windy City's ranking to its nightlife and low divorce rate.

"Chicago has plenty of friendly neighborhoods for single ladies to settle down without settling. A fun bar and restaurant scene coupled with a low divorce rate makes Chicago one of our top picks for bachelorette living. Enjoy dinner or a concert at the House of Blues for a funky date night with your guy."

The survey was compiled using data from each city including the male-to-female ratio and low cost of living.

Another national survey conducted by the website found that only 17 percent of bachelorettes seek eligible bachelors as neighbors. About 45 percent of bachelors, on the other hand, seek the girl next door.
