Norwegian men come top for summer loving

You might expect the silken tongued lotharios of Italy and France to come out top in Europe's seduction stakes, but it seems Norwegian men lead the field for summer loving.


A new study by dating agency Meetic, part of, shows that Norwegian men are the biggest "sjarmører" in the continent, with 74 percent claiming at least one lucky lady had fallen into their love trap during the sweltering summer months.

Spaniards and Italians followed closely behind, with 65 and 61 percent enjoying a summer romance respectively.

"A sense of humour is key for a summer relationship to live on," says María Garay, Dating coach at Meetic.

Dare we say this might be a reason why German singles are at the bottom of the table, with only 27 percent of men saying they’d had a holiday romance in the past.

In any case, Meetic’s study found that most relationships don’t live on into the autumn, with a mere 13 percent reaching the six-month mark and an even lower 11 percent lasting a full year.
