Mancunians have been airing all their dirty laundry in a recent survey which revealed that a whopping 71% are most likely to give their partner a sloppy snog on the first date, while almost a third would have sex on the first meeting.
The survey of 1,002 adults carried out by SerenataFlowers.com revealed that almost 1 in 3 adults (31%) are willing to have sex with their date if the date goes well. We should think the last part was a given…
Just under a half say they would wait for the second or third date before doing the deed, while 16% say they would rather wait for the fourth date. The remaining 11% said they would wait for five dates or more.
It all sounds very technical to us, but who’s counting, eh?!
According to the research, Brits want to say those three magic words before meeting their partner’s parents, and typically say “I love you” after four months of courtship.
So how do you compare to the average?
Lucia Polla, Marketing Manager at SerenataFlowers.com, comments:
“The days of long drawn out courtship are over, with modern day couples meeting and progressing through the relationship milestones faster than their predecessors.
“However, despite this change up in the way couples are conducting their relationships, it’s nice to see that some traditions remain firmly in place and couples are still falling back on the basics of romance, gifting flowers, chocolates and other trinkets in the early stages of the relationship.”
The research revealed that Geordies were the most likely to snog on a first date, Scousers were the second most likely to (76%) followed by Mancunians (71%) with men most likely to initiate the kiss on the first meeting.
