We see it in romantic comedies and in the award-winning novels we read before bed. Romance, that sentiment, emotion and desire women have a tendency to long for, is apparently idle in a large handful of Canadian cities. This leaves women feeling rather neglected and far from fulfilled when it comes to dating and relationships. Let’s face it, we want romance. We want flowers for no reason on a Tuesday. We want to fall in love and we want dinner somewhere other than McDonald’s. Is it really so much to ask for?
Plenty of Fish recently conducted a survey determining the most romantic Canadian cities for singles. Researchers processed data from over 800,000 Canadian singles to pinpoint which cities are actively producing romance and which cities lack that enchantment. Here are the findings:
British Columbia is the most romantic province in the country
Well, well, well Vancouver, look at us go! B.C. singles are 27 per cent more romantic than the national average. Of course, this leaves me wondering why 100 per cent of my past relationships lacked romance, but hey, it could be worse, I could be single in Saskatchewan.
Single women in B.C. are 28 per cent more romantic than the national female average
Not surprised if the women on my Facebook are any indication. B.C. women love to publicly share their love on the internet. Now might be a good time for me to say: ladies, you don’t need to post “I love you” on your man’s Facebook wall, you can text or call – you have his number, right?
Saskatchewan and New Brunswick are tied as the least romantic provinces in the country
Singles are 20 per cent less romantic than the national average. Saskatchewan may have more daily hours of sunshine than any other Canadian province, but clearly that vitamin D isn’t making a romantic impact.
Single men in Manitoba are seven per cent more romantic than the national average
Those freezing winters may have something to do with it, fire and sex may be the most affordable way to keep warm around there.
Single men in Ontario are three per cent less romantic than the national average
So, Notebook fans, don’t head there expecting to be wooed.
