Missed Connections, Mapped

0

Where are Americans looking for love? A new infographic published in Psychology Today has some answers. Researcher Dorothy Gambrell analyzed the 100 most recent “Missed Connections” ads on Craigslist in all 50 states.

She found that the vast majority of the ads were placed by men: 59% were men looking for women and 27% were men looking for men. Just 13% of the ads were women looking for men and only 1% were women looking for women.

Even more interesting was where people saw the object of their affection. As Tracy Clark Flory observed in Salon, the most popular location in 15 states was Walmart. In California, it was 24 Hour Fitness. In Illinois, it was the train. And in New York, it was the subway. Do our customers in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York identify with this pattern?

40 year olds were most likely to have spotted that special someone at a strip club or adult bookstore (we think that means us), while 30 year olds crossed paths in a bar. 20 year olds met in ice cream shops. Cute!

Have you ever placed a Missed Connections ad? Did the person respond? Tell us in the comments.
