Give love a try: survey reveals that singles find rugby fans attractive!
So what is it about rugby that is so alluring? And, if you want to jump on the Rugby World Cup bandwagon, then how can you bag yourself a fellow fan? EliteSingles has the answers!
It might be time to start liking rugby
Just in time for the 2015 Rugby World Cup (the RWC), the survey polled 2400 singles 2 to discover their opinions on romance and rugby. The results validated what those in BC, Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador have been saying for years: rugby should be getting more attention! In fact, 58 per cent of singles surveyed declared that they would prefer to date ‘’someone who is really passionate about rugby.’’
This means that those who rate rugby are the most dateable sports fans (sorry, hockey nuts!). Rugby fans were the clear champions – only 31 per cent of singles surveyed said that they’d like to date someone who is into a different sport. Of course, it’s also important to keep in mind that, when it comes to sports and romance, the only real no-no is saying no: just 12 per cent of singles would date someone who ‘’hates all sports!’’
Rugby enthusiasm is not just for the guys!
The survey also revealed that this passion for rugby (and rugby fans) was not just a dude thing. In fact, flying in the face of certain dated stereotypes, the results showed that women not only want a piece of the sports action, they may be more keen on it than the men! Indeed, 80 per cent of women surveyed indicated that they find rugby fans interesting and sexy, as opposed to 78 per cent of men who think the same.
However, before men start inviting female rugby fans round for a thrillingly romantic session of Rugby World Cup action, it’s important to note that, while women like rugby fans, they don’t necessarily want to watch the game while on a date. Indeed, while the majority of men (52 per cent) would prefer to watch the RWC ‘’with a date,’’ just 39 per cent of women feel the same. Their preference is to watch ‘’with friends,’’ with 50 per cent of women picking this option – a clear case of tries before guys!
