I'm out of the dating game... thankfully.
Dating in Montana can be an adventure filled with natural beauty and unique experiences. With stunning national parks, ski resorts, and charming small towns, there are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities and romantic getaways. Traditionally a steak-n-potatoes kind of state, in recent years Montana's food and drink scene have evolved, with locally-sourced ingredients and craft brews being a highlight in many restaurants.
That said, I am SO glad I'm not in the dating scene anymore, because according to recent data shared by Wallethub.com, Montana ranks near the bottom when it comes to the best states for singles.
Sure, there are lots of things to do.
