Annie Daly—Here at Yahoo Travel, we’re firm believers of finding love on the road. So much so, in fact, that we asked Tinder, the popular GPS-based dating app that matches you up with people in your area, to list the countries with the most users. Our logic? Tinder travel is a numbers game: The more people on the app in the country you’re in, the higher your chances of meeting your future husband or wife while you’re on the road.
And the top 20 countries to Tinder are…

This info comes at a perfect time, too: Tinder recently released a new upgrade called Tinder Plus that brings your travel tryst game to new levels. Pre-upgrade, you had to wait until you got to your destination to scope out your prospects, since the app is GPS-based. But now, Tinder Plus has a “passport” feature that lets you select your destination before you’re even there — meaning you can check out all the single people in advance, and perhaps even arrange some dates so you’re ready to go once you get there.
Just be sure to be safe while Tindering abroad — meet in a public space, let a friend know where you’ll be, and bring a fully-charged phone.
Lesson? If you’re single and jonesin’ for an international affair, forget tourist attractions. We suggest you take this list very seriously and select your next vacation destination based on, um, other attractions.
