If you're looking for a romantic Valentine's Day, it might be a little easier depending on what state you're in. Why? Well, the Whisper— the app where people share secrets and thoughts anonymously— decided to look at the types of secrets and posts being shared in each state to find which are the most romantic and which are the most lonely. How did they do it? It all came down to the language used. They analyzed posts for words like "soulmates", "loving V-Day", "being in love", and "chivalry". Now, I'm really not wild about the word "chivalry" being used to indicate romance, though clearly for a lot of people it does. But it's good to remember that everyone is going to have a different association for the words used in the posts.
A lot of people can feel really romantic without ever mentioning soulmates, red roses, or any of the songs from the Titanic soundtrack. But it's still interesting to see what people are posting and where folks are getting carried away with the Valentine's Day romance. So where won out as the most romantic? Well, here's a look at the top ten. And I have to say, it really seems like New England is for lovers.
