We’re so romantic…or not

Pop Candy alerts us that Alexandria, my current home, is the most romantic city in the United States of America according to amazon.com. My previous location, Arlington is #9 while Washington D.C. is #11. The Ombudsman works in the #2 city, Cambridge, Mass.

While Old Town Alexandria and the roof of Riverhouse in Arlington have their advantages, I never thought of either place as particularly romantic. I would have expected San Francisco (#15) to be higher and that New York would be on the list.

It has been suggested that perhaps the criteria amazon.com uses, “sales data of romance novels, relationship and sex books” indicates a lack of romance. Seeing that we’re lumped in with Cambridge and Ann Arbor supports that statement — what do Cantabs and Wolverines know about amore anyway?!
