The map of the United States doesn't just show state lines. Sometimes it reveals Google autocomplete stereotypes. Other times it proves that we're not that divided. This map might be the best though. It shows each state's most popular locations for Craigslist Missed Connections. Meaning these are each state's best spot to see somebody you think is pretty cute. It's wonderful.
Dorothy Gambrell made this map for Psychology Today and it reveals some rather enlightening facts (or confirms assumptions we had) of each state. Like it totally makes sense that New York has the most Craigslist Missed connections in the subway. Same for Hawaii and the beach. It also maybe kind of makes sense that California has an obsession with fitness. But man oh man, some of these other popular spots for missed connections are HILARIOUS.
The most popular place to spot potential love in Texas, New Mexico, Missouri, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Idaho, Montana, South Dakota, Ohio, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina and Florida? Wal-Mart. That's incredible. Check out the full map below:
