Who doesn't love a little southern charm? This college town has a lively nightlife, rowdy Tar Heel games and home-style cooking for singles of all ages to enjoy. Mingle with eligible bachelors and bachelorettes on bar-lined Franklin Street, or take a date to Crook's Corner for some nationally-acclaimed grits and banana pudding. Cheering on your favorite U.N.C. team is also a surefire way to take the edge off a first date. And if you're into music, find someone who will rock your world at nearby Cat's Cradle, a small venue where local bands perform alongside big acts like The Counting Crows, John Mayer and Iggy Pop. --B.E.
