Nashville Top 10 Bachelors


Last month The Nashville Voice hosted our first Dating in the Ville discussion. We invited women to discuss the dating scene in Nashville with the goal of finding out why many women tend to remain single. We also surveyed the women to determine what character traits they look for in a man.

After reviewing our data 5 characteristics stood out:

  • Ambitious
  • Financial Stability
  • Fun/Outgoing
  • God-fearing
  • Trustworthy

With this information, The Nashville Voice editorial team selected the Top 10 Bachelors in Nashville.

Editorial Note: The following list is in alphabetical order by first names.
