by Jake Cappuccino

People are always trying to get a leg up on dating. They're always trying to see what they can do, how they can dress and where they can go to increase their chances of finding like-minded individuals to date.

Millennials are no different than any other age group in that regard, but some places are better than others for dating when you're a young person.

Well, thanks to US News & World Report, we can all see exactly which countries are best for dating as a Millennial. US News actually created a list of best countries in the world, and it derived a list of the best places to date as a Millennial from that other main list, using responses only from Millennial-aged participants.

To create its list, US News defined 65 attributes, or "terms that can be used to describe a country and that are also relevant to the success of a modern nation," and surveyed 16,248 people from 36 countries in the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Attributes were divided into nine subgroups that, when taken all together, determined the rankings of the best countries. The subgroups were adventure, citizenship, cultural influence, entrepreneurship, heritage, movers, open for business, power and quality of life.

The participants themselves considered a random selection of countries and country attributes, with the end result being that each survey participant considered about half of the attributes for about a third of the countries, according to US News' methodology.

Business Insider reports for the Millennial dating survey that US News scored each country on five attributes: friendliness, fun, sexiness, trustworthiness and approachability.

Given those qualities, here are the 10 best countries for dating, according to Millennials.

4. Australia

6. Canada

7. Thailand
