Looking for Love in London
Searching for your soulmate and got a trip to London planned? Consider this. Craigslist, the online classified ad site, has determined that Bermondsey Station on the Jubilee Line is London's "Most Romantic Tube Station," based on a four-year study of the love-struck postings on its site. The same study names the Jubilee Line as London's most romantic tube line" -- the one offering the best odds of a fellow passenger falling for you on a crowded train, then posting an online ad to find you. The least romantic station, according to the site: Tottenham Court Road.
This is all based on Craigslist's "Missed Connections," those poignant little ads posted by travelers who caught someone's eye but didn't follow through at the time. The site came up with something called a TRIST score (Tube Romance Index Score Total), calculated by "dividing the number of Missed Connections mentions for a particular station or line by the number of passengers per year using that station or line (in millions), times 10 to give a whole number, and rounding it to three decimals." Whatever. Can anyone corroborate this with anecdotal evidence of their own? Let's get our own database going. Anyone have recommendations for romantic stations in other cities?
