If you're looking for love, stay in Washington

Looking to get lucky?
Move to Everett.
It's in the Top 20 Most Romantic U.S. Cities in a survey by Amazon.
The list is based on the purchase of more than sex toys. Items include romance novels, relationship books, romantic movies and Dean Martin music. Cities of more than 100,000 people were ranked on a per-capita basis.
This is the third year in a row Everett has made the love list. The city ranked 18th, down two notches from last year, but it's still something to hug about.
Maybe it's something in the water. Four of the cities of love are in Washington. Seattle took second place. Vancouver was seventh and Spokane came in ninth.
Texas nabbed two places, with San Antonio taking the top spot overall.
Victoria, B.C., was named the love capital in Canada.
