For all those looking for love, apparently you don’t have to look any further than forty miles away.
According to a new survey, the perfect partner lives just 41 miles away according to research.
A study, which was carried out among 2,000 adults who have met Mr. and Mrs. Right found that their other half lived an average of 40 miles away when they met.
On top of that, most couples meet in a pub or through friends.
Around one in three found that their perfect partner lived just five miles away when they first met with almost four in ten from the same town.
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.”
The survey found a soppy 61% said they believe there is someone special out there for everyone although a cynical 38% felt that your odds of meeting ‘the one’ were slim to none
