SAN ANTONIO - Has San Antonio lost that loving feeling? At least a couple online sources think so.

The grocery delivery service Instacart put San Antonio on its list of least romantic cities this year. The service based that designation on searches for terms such as like “flowers,” “strawberries,” “candy” and “champagne” around Valentine’s Day. 

In case you’re wondering, Boston is Instacart’s most romantic city this year. The least romantic? Indianapolis.

You can find the cities it considers most and least romantic, here.

Then, there’s a recent study by dating website Match.com. It found that San Antonio was near the top of the list when it comes to “ghosting.” Match.com defines that behavior as “quietly disappearing – not following up or responding to messages from someone you’ve met while dating.” Austin is the only city that ranked worse than the Alamo City. In fact, Austin has the worst-behaved singles in the country, according to this study. So, at least we’re not THAT bad.

But Amazon thinks San Antonio is romantic. Last year, we were ranked the No. 1 romantic city in the U.S. based on purchases of romance novels, relationship books, romantic comedy movies, romantic books and sales of sexual wellness products. This year, they made the designation based on which city streamed the most love and romance songs on Amazon Music. We ranked No. 5; Las Vegas was No. 1.

San Antonio also made it on another most-romantic list this year. OpenTable.com, an online reservation site, put a San Antonio restaurant on its list of most romantic restaurants in the country. That spot? Chef Andrew Weissman’s Signature restaurant, located at La Cantera Resort & Spa.
