Celebrating the single life
This Mediterranean city's vibrant neighborhoods, entertainment and nightlife attract the unattached.
These Israelis dancing on Tel Aviv's Rothschild Boulevard have turned a quiet, residential street into a dance party. it's not clear what sort of dance they're into, but whether they're swinging to swing or stepping to some other rhythm, they seem to be having a pretty good time. Their shadows dance with them, breaking up the street's colors, and locals enjoy the show.
According to Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics, about 80% of Tel Aviv men and 70% of Tel Aviv women are single into their late 20s and 30s, the highest concentration of unmarried folk in the country.
This number has been increasing in the last few decades as young people flock to the city from the suburbs to enjoy all the Tel Aviv single scene has to offer.
And they're having a lot of fun in the process. Tel Aviv is a robust city that offers plenty of distractions and good times for its single residents, including trendy neighborhoods, nightlife, bars, shows, restaurants and more.
Those who know the city's dating scene will often avoid trying to meet a significant other on weekends, which tend to attract married suburbanites. Instead, singles go out on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
