WHEN speaking to those who matter most, the people of Worcester sometimes has difficulty saying how they truly feel.

In a recent survey, conducted by online French fashion retailer La Redoute UK, it was revealed that 27 per cent of Worcester people last told someone that they loved them more than a year ago, or even worse, couldn’t remember uttering those three little words at all.

Instead, it’s assumed that their loved ones know how they feel, but actions don’t always speak louder than words. Whether it’s to beloved mothers or significant others, those missed opportunities to tell someone how much they’re adored begin to add up and saying "I love you" becomes more difficult every day.

Worcester wants to hear it too, with 97 per cent of people admitting that hearing those words made them feel special or happy.

But one of the most surprising finds of the survey was that it wasn't English people wanted to hear those three words in - 83 per cent of people said they believe "I love you" sounds better when said in a European language. Eighteen per cent prefer to hear it in French and 48 per cent of women admitted they have a penchant for tender French poetry.

When it comes to sharing our feelings, nearly half of Worcester (47 per cent) said they don’t care what their other half wears but most are partial to a classic look - suit and tie or little black dress (23 per cent). But don’t worry, personality came out top in the poll of what the Worcester finds the most attractive quality in their other halves with 45 per cent.

How many more of these pointless surveys are going to be presented as 'news'? When will a reporter with more than an ounce of common sense ask the important question: how many people took part in this survey? You can get percentages with a tiny number of responses. And reporting 'facts' like this is just stupid: '...nearly half of Worcester (47 per cent)...'. No! It's not half of Worcester, it's half of those people who responded to the survey! For goodness sake, get some perspective and context. Or stop falling for these advertising cons.

Every single day and always more than once....my husband always says I love you to me when we go to sleep, if I leave the house without him and when we wake up and I say I love you to him too, he makes me so happy.

I always tell close friends and my family I love them....since my son was stillborn last November it has made me realise that life is too short, and you don't know what's round the next corner...cherish every day with your loved ones and tell them you love them.

I also tell my husband I love him every night before we go to sleep and he always tells me he loves me when he leaves for work at stupid o'clock in the morning because you just never know when might be the last time.....
