If you ask us, the L.A. neighborhood with the best dating potential is wherever you happen to be.

But online dating site Zoosk recently analyzed profiles from coast to coast to come up with the neighborhoods with the greatest mate potential in a handful of America's largest cities.

It also paired up with Yelp to find out where you need to go for a well-sorted date.

“According to the study, which analyzed more than 158,000 Zoosk profiles around the country, Torrance is home to the most desired singles under 35, and Marina del Rey is where you’ll find the hottest singles over 35,” a Zoosk spokeswoman told us.

While you're in the Marina area, your “most romantic waterside date” spot is Salt Restaurant and Bar.

The top area spot for “take-your-shoes-off” eating is Irori Japanese restaurant, the site says. 

And outdoor thrill-seekers should take their dates to Marina del Rey Parasailing, Zoosk says.

Torrance daters should hit up Smog City Brewery and restaurants Great Maple and Aliotta's Via Firenze.

We hope you stay up all night, just to get lucky.
