Londoners are the biggest flirts and luckiest in love

New research says Londoners are the luckiest in love - or at least, admit to the most romantic liaisons. 
 
A survey of 2000 Brits found 55 per cent of Londoners have had a holiday romance, and 17 per cent of those are still with the partner they met while away. 
 
Louise Hodges from TravelZoo, who commissioned the study, joined Wake Up London to discuss the findings.
 
The research also found 63 per cent of Londoners think taking a holiday with a new partner is the best way to see if the relationship will work and 10 per cent said they had got engaged while taking a trip. 
 
This could be as 30 per cent of Londoners said they felt more attractive while abroad than at home, though this new found confidence may be responsible for the 6 per cent of Londoners who admitted they’d cheated while away. 
 
Louise said:  “Londoners are certainly the nation’s biggest romantics and flirts when it comes to how they behave on holiday! Perhaps it’s the effect of escaping hectic life in the city finding a bit of relaxation together on foreign shores – one thing that’s certainly clear is a holiday with a partner is generally good for rekindling the flames of affection. For London’s singletons jetting off to escape the UK winter, the good news is this could also have the added bonus of providing the opportunity to meet a potential future partner.”
