Matchmakers versus online dating
Hollywood would have us believe that they are romantic, misunderstood and - even if we leave them for another man - likely to move to Tennessee and build us a house on a lake with blue shutters and await our return.But how do daters in the UK actually differ from daters in the US?
We British may pride ourselves on our GSOH, but men in the US claim to care more about a sense of humour (50% of AYI users calling it "very important", versus 33% in the UK).
American men also place more emphasis on intelligence.
British chaps would appear to be more old fashioned than their US equivalents, the data reveals.
Apparently UK men are more likely to stick to traditional gender roles and contact a female first, whereas in the US anything goes.
Everyone seems to celebrate Independence Day, these days.
