Trending: Amazon employee at Seattle-area warehouse tests positive for COVID-19

DatingGraphicIf you’re in Connecticut, odds are you won’t be lonely — if you’re looking for others who have installed smartphone dating apps.

The Constitution State tops AVG Technologies‘ rankings of downloads-per-capita for Android dating apps such as Tinder, Match, OKcupid and Grindr for all of 2014. Hot (so to speak) on Connecticut’s tail was Rhode Island, with Wisconsin, Massachusetts and Illinois rounding out the top five.

Expected tech-and-desperation heavyweights California and Washington were at 26th and 34th place, respectively. (Then again, iPhone and Windows Phone users weren’t included.) And Oregon of Portlandia fame sat either sad or satisfied at number 44.

At the bottom of the online security firm’s self-described “love league” were New Mexico, Idaho and Arizona.

Globally, the U.S. is nowhere near number one in Android dating app popularity. It’s outpaced by the U.K., Australia and Canada, only coming in at number four to edge out Argentina.

In case you’re wondering who’s looking over your shoulder at your sorry love life, not to worry: AVG says “the data is based on anonymised aggregate data from AVG app users who have downloaded a dating app on an Android device.” And not, apparently, accounting for those who later uninstalled it.
