Areas in NH Where Online Dating is Most Popular
Our research team recently looked into what areas of the United States and New Hampshire had the most interest in online dating. Identifying these hot spots involved a look at internet search volumes and Google Trends data to identify where singles were more prone to take to their smartphones and computers to find love. Because the study was done on a national level looking at major metropolitan areas, sometimes the winning areas technically are in other states but include the surrounding suburbs that fall within a state. This was the case in New Hampshire where the Burlington, VT, and Plattsburgh, NY, area was the winner, which included the suburbs located in New Hampshire.
Here are the full results over the past 12 months.

NH Dating Apps vs. Websites
App? Website? Mobile responsive? Mobile friendly? There’s enough jargon floating around here to make your head spin. So, what’s the difference and are you looking for a New Hampshire dating app or dating website?
In the early days of online dating, you had two separate platforms—dating websites were what you used on your computer and a dating app was something you downloaded onto your phone. They rarely worked together and were not cross-compatible.
Today, though, you have something new—mobile-responsive websites. What this means is that the same website address you use to access a New Hampshire dating website on your computer will work just as well on your phone without the need to download anything. It’s the perfect marriage of two worlds.
Some NH dating sites do still offer dedicated apps or both options, but we tend to favor the mobile-responsive options because there are no downloads, perfect cross compatibility, and the ultimate opportunity to find what you’re looking for and achieve your relationship goals.
