Dating site: Philly singles are nation’s ninth-heaviest drinkers

    A survey of users on dating website asked respondents, “How much do you drink?”

    From that, we get a list of the nation’s heaviest- and lightest-drinking singles. Philly’s singles come in as the ninth-heaviest.

    The lists were based on three answers to the survey question: “frequently,” “very frequently” and “seldom,” according to a report in the Washington Post.


    D.C.’s singles, by the way, are the nation’s heaviest drinkers. The lightest hail from Las Vegas. Go figure.
