You may recall that Forbes magazine recently ranked Denver No. 13 in overall date-worthiness, taking into account a diverse array of hot spots, including the Denver Art Museum and East Colfax dive bars with hipster jukeboxes. Now Match.com says we're 12th in terms of dating during a recession, and while that's about average, at least we're affordable.
