Old-fashioned romance

Women seem to love the good old-fashioned romance as they prefer hearing their partner say “I love you” or going on a dream holiday, more than receiving gifts from them.

Of the total number of women (aged 50 or above) surveyed by the British Heart Foundation, 42% said that hearing their partner saying “I love you” was the best way to their hearts, closely followed by going on a dream holiday (40%).

Senior cardiac nurse June Davison of British Heart Foundation said: “It seems the best way to make a woman swoon is by telling her you love her before tucking her up in bed for a good night’s sleep.” “Our survey was a bit of fun but there’s nothing funny about the fact that heart disease kills three times more women than breast cancer,” she added, according to a Heart Foundation statement.

Such women also prefer a good night’s sleep than receiving sexy lingerie as a gift. One in six women opted for a good night’s sleep to get their hearts in a flutter, the survey said. Whereas when it comes to sexy lingerie, only one in 20 women of this age group, said sexy lingerie gets their heart racing.

So all those who think lingerie works with all, should think again!
