We all know the words to the song.

But is Rihanna telling the truth? Is it really possible to find love in a hopeless place?

Ultra Music Festival can sometimes seem to be as hopeless a place as any for finding a true connection. You're lucky just to find toilet paper.

And yet, would you believe it, we met some fine folks who swear they've groundscored some lasting devotion between dirty drops! Cynics would say those people are fools, but if PLUR is real, there must be some chance for love, right?

10. Believe and Be Found by Love
Despite EDM fests being a sweaty mob scenes, our new pal Stacey believes wholeheartedly in the chance to find love amid the uhntz-uhntz-ing masses.

"One day, love will find me," she swears. "I'm trying. It's why I'm here."

Is Ultra a good place to meet dudes?

"Absolutely," she says. "It's just one more thing in common. If you party together, you stay together. I'm a firm believer, because then you have nothing to worry about, nothing to hide."

How to get a woman who rave's heart?

"Sense of humor," she said. "You've got to be funny. If I'm not laughing, you're not happening."

9. Don't Bother With the Dudes, Love Your BFF
Are these best friends forever looking for love at festivals too? "Yes, actually, every single time," they say. "But then Ultra week, it's like fuck that."

"Fuck guys here," the blonde friend says. "While you're here, it's fun. When you go home, fuck that. It's weird as shit. You would never know. They're so weird. You don't want to do that. Do not find love at a rave!"

Sorry, dudes, these ladies don't want your "weird diseases."

There's a higher chance of getting an std during Ultra than finding love.

Actually my fiancee and I met 8 years ago at ultra and have had an amazing relationship, we are now engaged to be married and expecting a baby in june. Dont turn down love just because of the circumstances you met, if its real, it'll work. :)

Yes, because nothing is as romantic as exchanging saliva with a sweaty, drugged up stranger dressed like a clown....

You will find love at Ultra, much like you find the people of Walmart shopping at Armani.
