Miami is today named "America's Flirtiest City" by the researchers behind the largest ever study of online flirting.
Boston ranks second and San Francisco third in the first "National Flirtation League" (NFL) compiled by Badoo.com (http://www.badoo.com), the world's largest social network for meeting new people, with over 109 million users chatting and flirting in 180+ countries across the world.
Badoo's flirtation league ranks U.S. cities by the number of chats/flirtations initiated per month on Badoo by the average user in each.
The U.S. results are part of a larger global study of over 12 million flirtatious contacts made during one month on Badoo.com.
"This is a proud day for Miami", says Lloyd Price, Badoo's Director of Marketing. "The Dolphins might not have won the other NFL lately but their town has now won the NFL that really counts."
It's also a proud day for Florida, named America's flirtiest state, with three cities (Miami, Tampa, Orlando) in the flirt top 10.
The average Badoo user in Miami initiates 18.5 flirtatious chats per month: fractionally more than in Boston (18.4) or San Francisco (17.1) but comfortably more than in New York (16.1) or LA (15.1).
While Miami tops the American league, Athens, Greece is named the world's flirtiest city.
Even the flirtiest American cities are flirting in the minor leagues compared to the world's three flirtiest cities - Athens, Moscow and Kuwait City - where average Badoo users each initiate over 25 online chats/flirtations per month.
Miami ranks 62nd globally, New York 89th and LA 106th.
