Poet and expressionist Ranata Suzuki once said, “Meeting you was like finding the answer to a question I had long since forgotten asking.” For the third year in a row, the team at CenturyLinkQuote wants to know what special question each state is asking the most.
While forming relationships looks a little different this year, what’s not different is how people turn to Google to get their love questions answered, including the ever-popular “Does he like me?” and the ever-helpful “How to kiss.”
From the mountains of Alaska to the beaches of Hawaii, we compiled a list of each state’s most burning relationship question from the past year. So whether your binging of Bridgerton has inspired you to rekindle the spark in your current relationship or you’re motivated to start anew, we want to know what love questions you’re searching for.
With internet availability practically everywhere these days, we all turned to Google to answer one thing or another (including all our questions on dating and love).
- The most popular inquiry for 20 states was the best dating apps, leading us to believe that many people are eager to meet someone special. And while it may seem an intimidating way to get to know someone, studies from Pew Research Center show that 3/10 Americans have used a dating site—the most popular age range being 18–29 at 48%.
- The second most popular question was “How to kiss,” attracting residents of seven states: Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, and Wyoming.
- The least-asked inquiry was, “Does she like me,” which appears only twice in contrast with its opposite question, “Does he like me?” with six states asking.
- Virginia’s state slogan is “Virginia is for Lovers.” This pucker-up catchphrase was coined from an ad-agency in 1969 wanting to increase the Old Dominion state’s appeal. The slogan first made its appearance in Modern Bride (circa 1969) and has inspired couples to its borders ever since.
- Hawaii’s island of Kaui was named the most romantic destination by U.S. News. Its beautiful sandy beaches, appealing hiking trails, and picture-perfect weather attracts more than one million visitors each year.
- “How the west was kissed” may be a more appropriate term for the western part of the US. According to our findings, for three years in a row, three states—Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming—have asked “How to kiss” as their state’s most-googled relationship question.
