Can't seem to score with the nerd of your dreams on Tinder? Never fear. The dating app Clover recently launched a new chat feature called "mixers" to allow people with likeminded interests (think: Pokemon and chill) to connect online or via a meet-up. Instead of swiping right, users can take their time and digitally mingle with scores of people who share the same hobbies and quirks.
If you're picturing tons of chat rooms dedicated to Game of Thrones fanatics or folks looking for a one-night stand, think again. Clover analyzed data from their 1.5 million users to nail down the most popular groups and what they found was pretttty interesting. These are some of the hottest topics people are using to connect in each state:
