Looking for Love? Try Your Neighbor

Anybody out there remember the Cameron Crowe movie Singles? In an improbably affordable Seattle apartment building of one-beds, neighbors not only knew each other, they knew each other...biblically. They were friends, lovers, spouses-to-be. Most of us who were single and living in one-bedrooms scoffed at the concept--how many of our neighbors do we even chat with at the mailbox, let alone, you know, love?

It turns out your own building isn't such a bad spot to scout out your next romance. The listings Web site Apartments.com just released a Valentine's Day survey, in which they polled 900 renters about loving close to home. Sure, more than half of those surveyed said they'd resisted lip-lock with the neighbors, but 32% had engaged in an intra-building relationship.
