But honestly, if you don't love college football, and maybe hockey, there isn't really a whole lot of major interest to people 35 and over in the city itself. For people 35 and over, Polaris, Easton and Dublin seem to be the preferred entertainment destinations, if you consider shopping entertainment, that is. OSU's powerful influence seems to have made Columbus a very youth-oriented city, especially when compared to Cleveland and Cincinnati, which aren't particularly big in terms of local college scenes, but have a lot more plentiful cultural and natural offerings that appeal to all ages for being relative in size to Columbus.
In short, if I were under 35 and single, I'd be fairly happy in Columbus. But if I were 35, single, and looking for something more meaningful than getting plastered at a bar every friday and saturday night, and I had the option to move elsewhere within the state, I would probably check out Cincinnati or Cleveland.
However, it is still a crowed mostly made up of late 20 somethings to early 30's. Columbus has a strong young professional scene. So if you fit into that mold then you will be happy here. Columbus' average age is 31, one of the youngest in the country. This is a great place for a single individual to settle down, and have plenty of options when it comes to dating.
Columbus has a great dining scene, and some great restaurants to go on for a date. Columbus is great when it comes to bars, clubs, and restaurants. All things that you need for the perfect date or to find a date, and have fun.
I would say that Columbus does have a huge party yr. You don't have to attend those places if you dont want to, there's plenty of other options. If your into the modern arts or alternative rock music or light rock, Columbus has a lot of these venues. Tons of ppl in this age group go to nicer bars to watch Buckeye games etc I would say, depending on your hobby I Second the addition of what is called the Northwest columbus area this is the area that is between Dublin and Upper Arlington along Henderson Rd.
This is a good option for those that want an area with families and singles, but in a neighborhood that is newer past 30 years and more suburban in layout.
Last edited by streetcreed; at PM. I have the same advice for anyone who's single, whether you're 20, 30 or 40 and beyond. I was in the same boat for a long time, but now joyously and thankfully by the grace of God, I'm getting married soon and I can hardly contain my happiness!
Go to church! Seriously, it works! Of course I don't recommend going solely for that reason. You actually go there to meet God, and then He takes care of the rest I'm a year-old single, professional man. I've lived in Columbus for 3 years. I am not a Columbus native, and I've spent time in most major midwest cities, so I think I can provide an objective opinion regarding single life in Columbus.

I'm sure Columbus natives will not enjoy all aspects of my post, but I speak the truth. Although it sounds completely absurd, the city is truly defined by and obsessed with all things Ohio State. This even bleeds into the singles dating culture - you will limit your dating prospects if you don't hop on the OSU bandwagon - sad, but true.
It's a newer city struggling to find an identity - very suburban - sort of a smaller Atlanta. If you're looking for a mid-sized city with a bigger-city feel, check out Indianapolis.
Lots of rednecks sorry - but this is true. There's only one city in the entire midwest I've found that actually attracts and caters to single thirty-somethings - Chicago.
How do you determine which city is best for singles in ohio anyways?

Since many Ulster-Scottish settlers in America especially the South were Presbyterian, the term was applied to them, and then, later, their Southern descendants. One of the earliest examples of its use comes fromwhen an author noted that "red-neck" was " a "name bestowed upon the Presbyterians.
Ulster-Scottish settlers in the hill-country of Appalachia brought their traditional music with them to the new world, and many of their songs and ball dealt with William, Prince of Orange, who defeated the Catholic King James II of the Stuart family at the Battle of the Boyne, Ireland in Supporters of King William were known as "Billy Boys" and their North American counterparts were soon referred to as "hill-billies".
It is interesting to note that a traditional song of the Glasgow Rangers football club today begins with the line, "Hurrah!
We are the Billy Boys! The term, first used to describe a southerner of Ulster-Scottish background, later became a nickname for any white southerner, especially those who were uneducated.
