Everyone is looking for love at Wawa (and Sheetz)

Dorothy Gambrell has published an infographic over at Psychology Today that breaks down the demographics of missed connections posts on Craigslist. She analyzes the state-by-state gender ratio of posts (Idaho's Craigslist is mostly straight dudes, Hawaii has the highest proportion of men seeking men) and takes into account the location of the supposed "missed connection." The subsequent map of the United States demonstrates that most of Pennsylvania's missed connections occur in convenience stores because, really, every great love story begins at Wawa with an inviting, "J'eat yet?" Cue fireworks. [h/t Gothamist]
