Worcester people 'most romantic', survey finds

WORCESTER people are some of the most romantic in the country, a survey has found.

The survey, commissioned by Two Together Railcard, also discovered that a perfect relationship for couples in Worcester consists of a four year age gap, more than five kisses a day and regular date nights.

According to the survey, 100 per cent of lovers interviewed from Worcester go on at least one date per month while one in five wine and dine their partner at least once a month - the highest rate in the UK.

Good conversation, sharing household chores and the same taste in films also came out on top. 

According to the more than 2,000 people who took part in the survey nationwide, the perfect relationship was found to consist of a three and a half year age gap, five kisses a day, sex twice a week and going on at least two romantic UK breaks each year.

Sharing two hobbies, saying 'I love you' at least once a day and regarding your partner as your best friend are also signs of a lasting liaison.

Andrew Robertson, for the Two Together Railcard, said: “It’s refreshing that today’s perfect relationship is based on simple things such as meals out, travelling together to new places, daily kisses and telling each other ‘I love you’ before going to sleep.

“It was also refreshing that the research shows you don’t have to be married to be in a perfect relationship."

But it’s not an entirely dreamy existence – bad driving, leaving dirty clothes on the floor, over spending on the monthly budget and lack of washing up were all listed as things that irritate us most about our partners.

What do you think? What is the most romantic thing you've ever done for a partner or that a partner has ever done for you? Let us know! Comment below or email ljo@worcesternews.co.uk.

Two Together Railcard? Experts on relationships, or yet more free advertising for a commercial company dressed up as 'news', based on a survey of only 2000 people nationwide? And WN, make your mind up - are we the 'most romantic' as your headline says, or 'some of the most romantic' as it says in the report. I suspect that a few people in Worcester responded and Two Together Railcard has sent a mailshot to every local newspaper in the country, with a spin on it for their town or city. WN, at least be honest and headline this as an advertising feature. Because news it is not! Now, I'm going to take a survey of all the people in my house who want a cup of coffee and a chocolate digestive. Guess what? It's 100% ! I expect to see a headline tomorrow saying that based on my survey Worcester has more people having coffee and biccies than anywhere else in the universe! Hold the front page...

This is odd. The article for the Macmillan Coffee Morning is marked as 'Commercial Feature', which is what this one should be. All the money they make goes towards treating cancer victims, so not really a 'commercial' venture is it? Charity events should be highlighted in a local newspaper, quite rightly. And for some reason the comments on that story have now been closed. My brain hurts...
