Unsurprisingly, Vegas takes the "open minded" cake

There has been a lot of recent data stating that most daters are complete narcissists when it comes to romance and only want to pursue people who remind them of themselves. But according to a new study from dating site Zoosk, many online daters are open minded to pursuing people with different characteristics. And it turns out that Las Vegas, home to contortionists and “no judgement” policies, is the most flexible city when it comes to being “open minded” in romance.

Here are Zoosk’s results for the cities you should consider traveling to for singles who aren’t interested in dopplegangers:

Zoosk also specifically broke down what cities are the most open minded in different categories, showing where people of one religion are open to dating someone from a different denomination, or where someone of one height would be more open to dating someone of a different height (although this assumes a 5’4″ is just as open to dating a guy who’s 5’10″ as she is one who is 4’10″):

But don’t move just yet. Zoosk gathered data from matches who engaged in “deep conversation,” meaning that they exhibited interest by sending at least two messages to one another each. That means a conversation consisting of: “Hey sexy, I want to take you to the moon,” “Please stop,” “I’m revving up my engine to take you out of this world,” “Oh dear God,” shows sustained romantic interest.
