Singles Want Serious Relationship

( - September 18, 2004) A Yahoo Personals survey has found that the majority of singles want a serious relationship. Yahoo Personals recently surveyed 11,000 singles on a variety of singles issues. Here are some of the results of that survey:

-- Longing for Love.
In 2004, 66 percent of singles admitted they are not happy being single, and nearly 80 percent admit they are "single but seriously looking." This is quite a shift from 2003 when nearly half of all singles surveyed (51% of women and 48% of men) were happy going solo.

-- Humor is a Magnet.
A sense of humor is the most attractive quality according to the majority of singles (42%) surveyed. While intelligence is the second most attractive quality to men (25%), women are turned on by good manners and chivalry (27%).

-- Bigger Spenders in the West.
For two years running, singles on the West Coast are the most likely to spend $100 or more on a date, while singles in the rest of the country spend between $25 and $50.

-- Make Me Laugh!
Singles overwhelmingly agree (94%) it's important that your significant other makes you laugh.

-- Kiss & Tell.
Similar to 2003, more than half (55%) of singles still say they would not smooch on the first date. However, this year, Midwesterners are the most likely to pucker up on the first date versus East Coast singles last year.

-- May/December Romance Not Just For Hollywood.
The majority (73%) of singles across the country say they would date someone older than themselves. How old will they go? More than 30 percent of men and 40 percent of women would date someone six to ten years older.

-- Brunettes Have More Fun.
Nearly half of the singles surveyed (47%) say their hair was brown when they had the most fun in their love life.

-- Boxers Knock Out Briefs.
When it comes to a man's preferred undergarment style, both sexes vote for boxers (nearly 70% of single women and 55% of single men).

-- Red or White Will Do.
Put down the martini glass, the "sexiest drink" according to singles (43%) is a glass of wine.
