Italian Stallions and sexy Swedes prove nation’s favourite

Italian Stallions and sexy Swedes prove nation’s favourite

A new study by Orange Broadband reveals one million Britons are currently enjoying a relationship with a partner in a foreign country.

For British men, Swedish and French women are considered more desirable than home-grown honeys.

Meanwhile, for women, the promise of Italian flair surpasses British boys in the world of romance.

Almost a fifth (18 per cent) of Britons have at some stage maintained a long distance relationship with the telephone as their only link to love – couples speaking for over five hours a week on average.

Traditionally, calling abroad had a massive downside – costing couples on average up to £1,680 a year.

But developments in calling over the internet have meant couples can chat for hours at end on a normal touch-tone phone, without getting charged any more than the price of their broadband package.

Director of product management, Orange Broadband, Asif Aziz, said: “The globalisation of dating has finally occurred.

“With cheap flights, cheap broadband and inclusive international calls, Britons can easily create a lasting relationship with somebody from a completely different continent, let alone country.”

In fact, cost is also a reason why Brits look abroad for love, as the study also found they spend an estimated £360 each a month on the domestic dating game.

The number one reason for finding partners outside the UK is the lure of a sexy accent (15 per cent) according to the study.

Other factors include the opportunity for cheap holidays to their homeland (11 per cent), the opportunity to learn a language (10 per cent) and apparent sexual prowess (eight per cent).

Tellingly, 10 per cent favour the freedom a long distance relationship enables. One in twenty (four per cent) meanwhile simply love the idea of long distance in-laws.

Preferred countries for British men to find love:

1. Sweden

2. France

3. Spain

4. Italy

5. Republic of Ireland

6. Czech Republic

7. Netherlands

8. Scotland

9. Germany
