Women are more likely to be turned off by someone who isn’t as tall as expected or by someone who speaks with an accent than by a partner who’s just after a ‘friends with benefits’ relationship, according to a recent survey by Jaumo. Jaumo spoke to 10,000 singles in the UK to reveal what the real turn-offs are for men and women.
A total of 49% of women and 66% of men said that they could picture themselves in a ‘friends with benefits’ relationship. However, while this may be something they would consider, it looks like true love and a real partnership are what most men and women are after. When asked whether they believed in love, nearly three quarters of those surveyed said yes. Slightly more women (74%) than men (71%) believe in true love.
When it comes to a partner’s height, most men are pretty indifferent. For 58% of women, however, height does matter. And women are more likely to be put off by a regional accent. 53% of the women and 47% of the men asked weren’t so fond of strong accents.
