Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne.
Lonely hearts in Los Angeles could meet sweethearts underground this Valentine's Day. The City of Angels plays Cupid, hosting speed dating sessions aboard its Metro Red Line.

Or, if the mini-date really goes off the rails, they can get off and wait for the next train.
