Londoners most likely to want to get married

London’s Evening Standard newspaper recently cited independent research which found that around 4 million single people in the capital are currently looking for a relationship. A separate survey published earlier this year found that seven out of ten Londoners under the age of fifty said they had dated within the previous 12 months– underlining just how few people are in long-term relationships. Yet, dating website Match.com’s LoveGeist Report 2009, an annual nationwide survey into love and dating, found that out of all the UK population, Londoners are the most likely to want to get married. Is that we’re all working such long hours that we don’t have time to meet people, or is that the decline in traditional face-to-face social networks, such as the church, sporting and other membership groups, has meant that it is getting increasing harder to meet people in ‘real life’ outside our personal networks?
