Smart, corporate and wealthy: If that describes your ideal date, this highly educated, coastal community is the spot for you. Meet aspiring money-makers on beaches looking out across Long Island Sound, strike up conversations with other singles at local bars and Irish pubs, or take a summer fling to $5 concerts at Columbus Park and sing along. If preppy isn't your bag, you can head to South Norwalk, or "SoNo," likened to New York City's Soho because of its trendy, chic crowd and artsy boutiques. Or hop on a train to Manhattan, where many Stamford guys and gals journey daily for work. Who knows, you may even find the love of your life hiding behind the Wall Street Journal on your 45-minute commute. --B.E.
