Occupy Wall Street may be a great place to score some free pizza, join in a few chants, or air your legitimate grievances. For the singles among us, it is also the perfect opportunity to strike up conversation with a cutie. “What does your sign say?” is the protest version of “What’s your sign?” Don’t be too shy if you go downtown — most of those interviewed said they wait for a potential suitor to make the first move. Get your flirt on, but make tracks before the police break out the zip-tie handcuffs. Here, some of the Zuccotti hotties we encountered on Sunday afternoon:

  1. Wow. Who knew that there were so many good lookins’ out there amongst the unemployed? Maybe someone can get a job as a matchmaker. One down, 6 million more to go.

  2. You read my mind! I was down there tonight and my conversation with a fellow single female went like this: being unemployed sucks > our taxes are too high considering we don’t get healthcare > corporations don’t pay their fair share in taxes > the guys occupying wall street are really hot.
