Psychology Today stumbled on something rather bizarre. It turns out the most popular place for people to find 'love at first sight' is... Walmart. There's a section of Craigslist devoted to 'missed connections'. These are posts by people leaving a message for someone they met but didn't speak to in real life. For example, "If you were the girl looking at the spandex at Walmart, we need to hook up." Analyzing these posts, more people thought they saw the love of their life in Walmart than anywhere else in the United States.
