Forget the main centres - it turns out Dunedin is place to be if you're looking for love on Valentine's Day.

Statistics New Zealand posted on Facebook which regions had the most singles and Dunedin came out on top alongside Kawerau and Palmerston North.

Forty-six percent of Dunedin's population were single according to the last census, while 45 percent of Palmerston North and Kawerau were also solo.

Residents in Selwyn, Southland and Central Otago are out of luck though, as those areas had the lowest population of singles.

Only 29 percent of Selwyn and Southland were without partners, while just 28 percent of Central Otago were looking for love.
