How long does it take to fall in love?

08 Jun 2017

New research has uncovered the amount of time it took for people to fall in love, with interesting results

In a recent study of 500 people conducted by dating app, TrueView, 43% of British couples claimed to have fallen in love within one hour.

Even more surprising is that almost a quarter of the couples surveyed said they fell in love the moment they set eyes on their partner. 

Yet the majority of respondents (80%) remained pessimistic on the use of science to get someone to fall for another's charms, despite American psychologist Arthur Aron's claims that you can using this set of 36 carefully compiled questions

It appears to be a spiritual connection that most Brits rely on to fall in love, with 65% of men declaring their love first and a staggering 85% of those surveyed claiming that they didn't need to hear the words - they just knew. 

Commenting on the findings, Matt Verity, co-founder of TrueView, says: "It’s encouraging to know that when it comes to matters of the heart, we Brits still believe in true love – a connection that can’t really be explained. After all, who wants to be matched by science, rather than by feelings? People’s quirky qualities are what make them unique, individual and attractive."
