With so many Americans looking for love online, it’s no surprise that people across the country are searching for the best dating apps to try.
The analysts at CenturyLinkQuote examined Google Trends data for the third year in a row to learn which relationship questions Americans are most curious about.
They found that 20 states are dying to know the best relationship apps to try.
- “Best dating apps” is the most googled relationship question over the past year. This makes sense — according to Apptopia, the top 20 relationship apps have gained 1.5 million daily active users this year.
- The most popular dating apps according to average monthly search volume are Tinder, Plenty of Fish, Match, OKCupid, Grindr, Bumble, eHarmony, Hinge, Clover, and The League.

- As of June 2020, the distribution of Tinder users in the US was 28% female and 72% male (AppApe).
The most popular inquiry for 20 states was the best dating apps, leading us to believe that many people are eager to meet someone special. And while it may seem an intimidating way to get to know someone, studies from Pew Research Center show that 3/10 Americans have used a dating site—the most popular age range being 18–29 at 48%.
The second most popular question was “How to kiss,” attracting residents of seven states: Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, and Wyoming.
The least-asked inquiry was, “Does she like me,” which appears only twice in contrast with its opposite question, “Does he like me?” with six states asking.
Virginia’s state slogan is “Virginia is for Lovers.” This pucker-up catchphrase was coined from an ad-agency in 1969 wanting to increase the Old Dominion state’s appeal. The slogan first made its appearance in Modern Bride (circa 1969) and has inspired couples to its borders ever since.
Hawaii’s island of Kaui was named the most romantic destination by U.S. News. Its beautiful sandy beaches, appealing hiking trails, and picture-perfect weather attract more than one million visitors each year.
