Man and woman have a conversation over wine.

According to a new study┬áby online dating company Zoosk, the city you live in could have something to do with how open-minded you are when it comes to dating. The study of one million Zoosk users showed single people living in certain cities were more likely to have flexible criteria for dating┬ásomeone with a different point of view on factors like religion, education, previous marriages, and body type. For the purposes of the study, Zoosk defined “open-minded” as “how willing a person is to date someone different from himself of herself.”

So where, exactly, do the most open-minded singles live? Surprisingly (or unsurprisingly?), they’re in the city of nonjudgmental sin, Las Vegas. Vegas tops the list of the country’s five most open-minded cities for dating, while Raleigh, North Carolina heads up the list of the country’s least open-minded singles:
