A Rent.com survey of New York renters found that 25 percent don’t want to date someone who lives outside their borough.

The percentage was almost equal across the boroughs, but Queens residents were the most willing to date people who live in other areas of the city, with 23 percent saying no to dating elsewhere.

Twenty-eight percent of Manhattan dwellers prefer to stay on their island to date, making it the least open to romance outside the borough.

The survey also found that New York renters are less likely to travel to see friends. If the commute is too long or involves transfers, 33 percent tend not to visit them.
