Earlier this year, Nerd Wallet ranked Detroit one of the best cities in the U.S. for singles, which likely means there are a heck of a lot of folks in Southeast Michigan and beyond using online dating sites to snag a Saturday night companion or "friend" to take to that second cousin's fiance's sister's wedding next month.

But have you ever wondered what distinguishes Michigan's online dating scene from, say, New York's or California's?

Well Mashable did, so they asked Match.com to check out the habits and interests of online daters in each of the 50 states by scanning for the most frequently used words or phrases on people's profiles.

So what word is used most frequently in Michigan (and by Michigan we mean the lower peninsula because apparently Mashable doesn't realize the UP exists).

"Bonfire," apparently.

Not "Go Blue." Not "day at the lake." Not "poutine." But bonfire, which is exactly what we did in high school after band practices with stolen six-packs of Busch Light.

At least our results weren't as bizarre as Mississippi's whose top word was "lookin" - what does that even mean??

Head over to Mashable.com to check out the full list of regional dating words.
