Look beyond a handsome jawline or a flirty pair of eyes. If you're hoping to make a love connection in New York City -- your potential mate's neighborhood could be an important factor in your hunt to find "The One."
Popular dating site OKCupid has released some data that might make you reconsider your refusal to date anyone from Queens or even call someone who lives above 145th Street. The OKCupid figures rate the compatibility of its users based on their neighborhoods -- and what do you know, love can be found even in some of the most unlikely corners of the city.
Turns out true love could be as close as a ride on the G train. People from Greenpoint and Bed-Stuy get on quite well, with a compatibility rate of 46.09. Greenpointers get along with just about everyone, but specifically Prospect Heights, Clinton Hill, Astoria, Flatbush, Bushwick, and Park Slope. Canoodling close behind is Bed-Stuy and Prospect Heights with a compatibility score of 41.57.
Who is least compatible, you might ask? It's you Turtle Bay. You with pretty much anyone. Particularly, though, Turtle Bay and Chelsea -- those two just cannot see eye to eye with a rate of 14.41. Can you imagine that first date? Awkward.
Here's a look at the numbers. Do you agree with these matches, or are you and your significant other the happy exception to the rule?
