Bing: Atlanta Is The Nation’s Leader In Romantic SearchesBy: Zach Walton - February 13, 2014
What’s a romantic search? Is it a Web search for a dating site? Or perhaps tips on how to set up the perfect date? Whatever they are, Bing is tracking them.
Bing revealed on Wednesday that it has tracked romantic searches across the nation and compiled a list of the cities that search for romance the most. Atlanta, Georgia came out on top with the most romantic searches with Washington, D.C. and Detroit, Michigan trailing behind in second and third place respectively.
Once again, Bing doesn’t come out and say what exactly constitutes a romantic search. We’ll just leave what Georgians and Washington, D.C. residents think is romantic up to the imagination then.
As for the least romantic cities, Tampa Bay, Florida leads the pack as retirement villages are probably not brimming with romance. Following it are Austin, Texas and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in second and third place respectively.

Alongside romantic searches, Bing has also compiled a list of the most searched for dating sites. As expected, the top three are Plenty of Fish, Match.com and OK Cupid. Here’s the full list:
1. Plenty of Fish
3. OK Cupid
4. Christian Mingle
For those of you who are lonely on Valentine’s Day, you might just start searching for famous couples to stare longingly at and wonder why you’re such a dateless loser. To make it easier on you, Bing has a collection of the top 10 most searched for couples as well:
1. Victoria and David Beckham
2. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
3. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
4. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
5. Faith Hill and Tim McGraw
6. Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen
7. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson
8. Kate Middleton and Prince William
9. Jay Z and Beyoncé
10. Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake
On a final note, Bing has reduced the cost of the $15 ProFlowers eCoupon on its Bing Rewards site. The reward normally costs 525 credits, but it’s now only 100 credits up through February 15.
