BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

People in Bethlehem are looking for love.

The inaugural "Matchmaking Fest" got underway Friday night.

The idea for this started with a little disrespect.

The social networking website Foursquare recently ranked Bethlehem as the second-least romantic city in the nation and that was mentioned on "Live with Kelly and Michael."

The Downtown Bethlehem Association is fighting back with this two-night event.

Friday's wine-and-cheese mixer will be followed Saturday by a day of matchmaking events.
