HOUSTON (CBS Houston) — Forget online dating. According to one study, people just need to go to Walmart to look for love.

A study in February’s Psychology Today reveals that a majority of people in 15 states felt that they fell in love at first sight at Walmart.

The study, based on “missed connections” posts found on Craigslist, finds that people in Texas, Florida, Ohio, Montana and North Carolina, among others, believe that they spotted their future husband or wife at the giant retail store.

The gym was another popular “missed connection” spot with people from three states believing they saw their future mister or misses there. Other popular places included the supermarket, bar and subway.

One of the more surprising ones came from Kansas as people said they fell in love while eating a Big Mac and fries at McDonald’s.

Psychology Today’s study was done from data based on each state’s 100 most recent “missed connections” posts on Craigslist.
