Meaningful relationships can be difficult to first obtain, and then maintain -- and that's where Google comes into play.

A new study looked at each state's (and Washington, D.C.'s) "most-Googled relationship questions" to get a taste of what folks across the country want to know when it comes to relationships.

This is the third-annual study, done by CenturyLinkQuote, which has been done in each of the past three years just before Valentine's Day.

Twenty states shared the number one most-Googled question: "What are the best dating apps?" Research from Pew shows that three in ten Americans have used a dating app, with 48% of those between the ages of 18-29 having used dating apps.

Seven states, including Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming, shared the second most-Googled relationship question: "How to kiss?" This is the third year in a row that Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming asked Google "How to kiss."
