Deadline Newsroom - If you got that loving feeling, but can't find a hook up, maybe you are in the wrong town.

Some U.S. cities are more likely than others to cure your Love Jones, according to Bert Sperling's

Sperling went looking for towns where romance blooms for baby boomers -- areas with high marriage rates and low divorce rates among baby boomers. The areas also have ample access to ballroom dancing, floral, jewelry and candy sales, and great restaurants, all the stuff boomers need to keep romance real.

Top 10 Cities That Have That Loving Feeling
(And reasons why some were chosen)

  1. Pittsburgh, PA (High flower and candy sales, but you really gotta love all those Superbowl wins.)
  2. Salt Lake City, UT (A chocolate lover's paradise.)
  3. Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC
  4. Providence, RI (Most ballroom dancing venues.)
  5. Charlotte, NC
  6. Hartford, CT (Tops in jewelry gift sales.)
  7. Minneapolis, MN
  8. Rochester, NY
  9. Dallas, TX (Great restaurants.)
  10. Houston, TX

The "Where Romance is Booming" study was sponsored by Eli Lilly and Co., the maker of Cialis. an erectile dysfunction remedy that gets your mojo working faster and longer than Viagra.

We kid you not!
