Looking for a hot romance this summer that’ll rival the contestants on Love Island? Well, Happn, the dating app that helps you find the people you’ve crossed paths with, has unveiled the top destinations across the globe to find your perfect crush so you know where to head to if you’re on the lookout for love.
Using statistics from users activity during the previous summer, the list of destinations shows where the most crushes happened. To make things extra handy, the dating app has broken the results down into three locations so whether you’re making your way in the airport, sight-seeing at one of the world’s most iconic monuments, or topping up your tan on the beach, you know the place to be.
Of all the international airports, it turns out visitors to Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam are busy whiling away their waiting time on happn with big success! Next up was holiday hotspot, the Turkish capital of Istanbul and our very own London Heathrow.
On the beach side of things, Barcelona, thanks to its boundless culture, amazing architecture and world-class drinking and dining scene, is the perfect sun-soaked backdrop for a date or two! In second place, is the cosmopolitan city of Nice in France, where you can enjoy a romantic boat trip or a cocktail in one of its endless line of bars.
Ibiza came in third place and the Balearic island is the perfect destination for anyone who fancies mixing their date up with an all-night party.
For those preferring a bit of culture in their dating life, there’s plenty of wonders around the world that are perfect for crushing. The Argentinian landmark of the famed Obelisk of Buenos Aires – a symbol of the sprawling metropolis – came out in first place.
Royal fever could also help to assist you in finding the love of your life as Buckingham Palace in London came second. Of course, it wouldn’t be a romantic list without the inclusion of the infamous city of love! The Eiffel Tower in Paris came third and it really needs no explanation.
