Manchester is officially the second most matched city on dating apps

I mean, have you seen us?


Still looking for a boyfriend for winter? Well, you're in the right place according to dating app, Badoo.

Manchester came second in Badoo's top ten locations in the UK to find love, with 70 million matches on its app in 2017. Possibly something to do with the fact we were rated the sixth hottest uni in the UK in 2016?
