“You can fall in love with someone who doesn’t live near you!” says location-based dating app
Going the distance: Your perfect partner lives 41 miles away, says new study
Calling all singletons…if you’re looking for love, you shouldn’t have to travel too far – because the perfect partner lives just 41 miles away, research revealed yesterday.
A study carried out among 2,000 adults who have met Mr or Mrs Right found that on average their other half lived just over 40 miles away when they met.
The research also found most couples were brought together following a meeting in a pub or bar, arranged through friends.
Looking for love has never been easier, with the modern world offering unfettered access to potential mates from outside of your social circle. But with technology bringing the world closer together, how can you manage your way through the tricky location-based dating landscape?
Benjamin Bak, founder of Lovoo, a location based dating app, said:
‘When you’re single all you can think about is if, and when you’re going to meet the love of your life and where you will meet them.
‘This research should be encouraging to anyone hoping to find a partner as it shows that they aren’t on the other side of the world or hundreds of miles away.
‘Although many couples meet whilst travelling the world or studying far from home, the odds are that we are likely to end up with someone living in the same area.’
That would be a location-based dating app who hired Bad PR regulars Onepoll to generate the pseudodata behind this story.
