Knoxville ranked America's loneliest, most desperate city
For the second straight year, Knoxville ranked first on Amazon.com's list of America's loneliest, most desperate cities. According to a press release, the ranking is based on compiling sales of romance novels, romantic comedy movies, romantic music and sexual wellness products, then multiplying that by the number of times residents complained about being single. Bonus points were awarded for the number of times residents texted someone more than twice in a row without receiving a response. "Romantic comedy movies make me feel very romantic, and then sad and lonely and dead inside," said one forlorn Knoxvillian. "Just how lonely am I? I bought a series of Amish romance novels and a book called 'Accidentally Married to...a Vampire?' That is a thing that happened."
