Romance isn't Dead. It's Just Hiding at Your Local Walmart.
(CNN Money) -- A study of "missed connection" posts on Craigslist, where love-struck hopefuls try to track down and win over a stranger who caught their eye, found that Walmart is the most popular place for people to find love at first sight.
Those results were found by Psychology Today magazine.
It could be the halo of fluorescent lights, the everyday low prices, or maybe a shared glance in the check-out line. Whatever it is, more people thought they saw their future spouse at a Wal-Mart than anywhere else in 15 states.
The thread ran from West Virginia to Texas in the south and Idaho in the north, based on the magazine's analysis of missed connection posts.
Not all connections happened at Walmart, of course.
In New York, the most frequently cited spot was the subway, and in California, the popular gym chain 24 Hour Fitness.
Age also plays a role. The most common place for missed connections for 20-somethings was an ice cream store. At 30, it was a bar, and for people over 40, it was a strip club or adult bookstore. To top of page

Wife guilty in Nichols Hills fire chief slaying
May 22, 2013 00:24 GMT
EL RENO, Okla. (AP) -- A jury in El Reno has convicted Rebecca Bryan of the murder of her husband, Nichols Hills Fire Chief Keith Bryan, and recommended a sentence of life in prison without parole.
Jurors reached the Tuesday verdict after about four hours of deliberation.
The 54-year-old Bryan claimed an intruder had shot her husband, though police found her Ruger pistol in a clothes dryer in their home after the shooting.
The gun was matched to the bullet used to shoot Keith Bryan in 2011 at the couple's Mustang home. Police also found a spent shell casing and a left-handed rubber glove wrapped in a bullet-riddled blanket.
The Oklahoman reports (http://is.gd/mvC6Mi ) Bryan didn't display her emotions when the verdict was read. Her lawyer gave her a hug and told her he was sorry.
