As couples attempt to sweep their partners off their feet on Valentine's Day, there are many of those who are single and lonely on Cupid's big day.

But with Valentine's Day still in full swing it's not too late to find love.

Statistics New Zealand has revealed the regions with the highest and lowest number of singles.

If you're single and ready to woo a special someone, or anyone for that matter, then there are three regions your chances significantly improve in.

Dunedin, Palmerston North and Kawerau are the regions with the highest percentage of singles floating around, with Dunedin at 46 per cent and Palmerston North and Kawerau at 45 per cent.

It might pay to launch your Tinder app around Auckland as well, where 41 per cent of people are single, according to Stats NZ.

You might also get lucky in Hamilton (44 per cent single and potentially ready to mingle), Wellington (43 per cent of alone, not necessary lonely, hearts) and Christchurch (where 42 per cent of the population might be looking for a crush).

Alternatively, if you're single in Central Otago, Southland and Selwyn, your chances of finding love are reduced.

The amount of single people in Central Otago is low at just 28 per cent while Southland and Selwyn's singles population sits at just 29 per cent each.

Statistics New Zealand noted that the data is based on the 2013 census.

The term 'singles' refers to those aged 15 years and older who are not in a marriage, civil union, or defacto partnership, Stats NZ said on their website.

Facebook users commented on Stats NZ's post, with one person saying "a trip to Kawerau is on the cards".

One person warned their single friend that a move to Central Otago probably wasn't the best idea.

Another said: "it's a Tinder honeypot out there."

It was pointed out that the regions with the highest percentage of singles (Dunedin and Palmerston North) have "big student populations".

So if you're single in Dunedin, Palmerston North and Kawerau, you know what to do!
