Best Place to Meet Singles:

Humboldt County Courthouse

Best Place to Break Up with Someone:

Murder Mountain

I'm not judging, Humboldt, but I am concerned. Wait, sorry, I am judging. The Humboldt County Courthouse winning out against our bars and cafes as your favorite setting for your meet-cute isn't a huge surprise, since the jail has held the title before. (FYI, not everybody there is single.) And last year's champion break-up venue the Hatchet House was another sign that our county's dating scene was rough. But damn, people — Murder Mountain is a dark turn. It's time for extreme measures before we go any further with the true-crime-podcast vibes. That's right, I'm giving romantic advice. Try meeting somebody at a local festival — you'll start off with common interests, you can gauge their patience/propensity for violence standing in an insane line for food and learn immediately if they dance like that one guy up front at a jam band show. And for breakups, consider an ice cream joint. Nobody can make a scene or shout about anything too private with all those kids around and this was all probably going to end with a dairy binge anyway. And if they suggest a farewell drive to the mountains, say no.
