Here at CNET Car Tech, we love cars and we love driving. But it's Valentine's Day, so we're focusing on a different kind of love: the romantic sort.

For almost as long as cars have been on the road, people have been using them to impress and attract potential mates. These days, there are so many different kinds and classes of automobiles available that drivers have many options and opportunities to make the right rolling first impression. However, the incorrect choice could give suitors the wrong idea about who you are, or they could simply attract incompatible mates.

Fortunately, Car Tech is here to help. We've picked eight types of cars to take a (very tongue-in-cheek) look at what they say to prospective mates and how they affect your shot at finding love.
