Most "best city" magazine polls need to be taken with a grain of salt, but at first blush, the latest poll from AskMen.com may be a head scratcher for some Chicago men.

The site, which dubs itself the world's No. 1 lifestyle site for men, ranked Chicago No. 25 in its list of the Top 29 Cities to Live In.

New York was listed as the top liveable city for dudes, with Miami and San Francisco the only other American cities in the Top 10 and Melbourne and Tokyo rounding out the Top 3.

The criteria for the rankings include opportunities for professional challenge, a strong sports team, the ratio and places to meet single, educated women, guaranteed vacation days, unemployment rate and the culinary scene.

Chicago men can take heart, however -- at least we beat Bogota, Columbia. Barely.

The full list:

  1. New York
  2. Melbourne
  3. Tokyo
  4. Madrid
  5. London
  6. Cape Town
  7. Miami
  8. Buenos Aires
  9. Sydney
  10. San Francisco
  11. Paris
  12. Los Angeles
  13. Hong Kong
  14. Tel Aviv
  15. Barcelona
  16. Sao Paulo
  17. Berlin
  18. Lisbon
  19. Beirut
  20. Istanbul
  21. Shanghai
  22. Montreal
  23. Amsterdam
  24. Chicago
  25. Toronto
  26. Kyoto
  27. Bogota
  28. Rome
  29. Las Vegas
