love.. at IKEA

so i'm a little obsessed with NPR. i commute everyday 45 miles each way, so i have a lot of time to spend with my favorite informative radio station. it is kind of the best.

anyways, this morning there was this great story about IKEA in Shanghai and how it apparently acts as a large gathering site for a sort of elderly "lonely hearts club". apparently people like to convene there for the free coffee and new friends. IKEA might not be super psyched about it, but i just got such a kick out of a retiree confessing:

"We don't tell them we go to IKEA, because IKEA is the place to find boyfriends and girlfriends".

so cute. i met bryan at a college party, not super romantic.
have you ever met a romantic interest somewhere random?

check out the full story here


  1. YES, YES, YES! chris and i listened to this story this morning and i think i laughed the whole time! some of the stories they share are so crazy!

  2. I met my boyfriend in AP US History my junior year of high school. We've been together for 6 years. Pretty random!
