Valentine's Day is just around the corner. But straight dudes, if you're hard up, it may not be too late. There's a familiar theory: straight women hang out in gay bars. Therefore, straight dudes who don't have much luck with the ladies should have better luck picking up women at a gay bar. Right?

Well, I was more than happy to test this theory. So I went with my best straight friend and co-worker Ben Hoffman from "infoMania" and hit some of West Hollywood's hottest gay nightspots.

Will Ben find love, or even a phone number, in time for Valentine's Day?
