For decades now, every February, Baltimore magazine has featured 20 eligible bachelors and bachelorettes in a package known as "Top Singles." But as our pages have gotten more modern and the prevalence of dating apps has increased, we decided it was best to go our separate ways.
In the latest episode of Baltimore Boomerang, magazine editors discuss some favorite memories of Top Singles past, what a wild and weird process it was to create the feature every year, and ultimately why we chose to retire it altogether.
Also on the show are former Top Singles Moneé Cottman (class of 2011) and Teddy Davidson (class of 2016), who share what the process was like first-hand, what it's like to date in Baltimore for better and for worse, and how the dating scene has changed in the current landscape. Plus, we put them to the test with some Baltimore-themed dating games.
Though our relationship with Top Singles is certainly complicated, there's no reason we can't still be friends.
