COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Residents in one Colorado city couple up in committed relationships at a higher rate than any other major city in the country.

Go ahead and celebrate by smooching your longtime partner, Colorado Springs.

That’s right, according to a new Valentine’s Day study from Facebook, Colorado’s second biggest city is the most romantic big city in the country — at least for its high percentage of couples in a committed relationship.

This news isn’t likely to shock many Coloradans, considering Colorado Springs is one of the state’s conservative hubs, with a large percentage of military and Christian families living in the city.

It’s also not likely to shock many natives that Colorado Springs is the third worst big city in the country for you to be if you’re single and looking for love.

According to Facebook’s data, you’ll have the best luck finding someone who’s single in San Francisco. And if you’re looking for a city that has the most even ratio of single men to single women, Facebook data suggests Memphis is the best place for you to head.

Denver also had a relatively high percentage of couples in a committed relationship, coming in at No. 16 on that list. The Mile High City is also a fairly poor place to be if you’re single, according to Facebook data, as Denver ranks 37th in percentage of singles.

However, if you’re a single lady, Denver may actually be a pretty good place to be. The city ranked 42nd in the ratio of single females to single males, and it’s probably that the lopsided ratio is stacked in the favor of single females, considering Denver ranked 4th on another list: best cities for single women. That’s thanks primarily to the city’s high male-to-female ratio.

In order to collect the results of the study, Facebook measured the number of people who identified themselves as being single beginning in October 2013 and those who said they were in a relationship by the end of the month.

You can find the full results of the whole study below.
