Psychology Today recently released a study on the most common places where Craigslist Missed Connections occur. While some may not be surprising (subways in the state of New York, bars in Winconsin and North Dakota), others are a little worrisome.
According to their map, Wal-Mart appears to be a popular place for believers in love to spot their dream guy or gal in about 14 states. Is it the drastically reduced good that make people fall in love at first site or is it the Wal-Mart greeters they’re really eyeing?
With this in mind, we start wondering what would be the worst places to meet our futures soulmates.
1. The Strip Club
Because how do you explain this chance encounter with your folks?
2. In Jail
Wouldn’t be the greatest place to try and find your “Happily Ever After.”
3. Funeral Home
Unless you’re Wednesday Adams, it’s not the most romantic of places is it? While you’ll probably be surrounded by some lovely flower arrangements, crying family and friends wouldn’t be the most ideal soundtrack to your romance.
4. The DMV
“Oh, well we met while I was waiting for my number to be called. He got up when it was my turn and—“ BOOOOOO-RINGGGGG
5. Chuck E. Cheese
Wait, why are you at Chuck E. Cheese in the first place? If you’re old enough to go to the bar, you’re old enough to avoid Chuck E’ Cheese at all cost.
BONUS: A Nickelback Concert
Wouldn’t say much about their taste, or yours for that matter.
