Men look for love and women look for a hot meal from a partner, according to survey

What men want in a relationship compared to what women want are two different things. At least in Australia, where a survey of 1000 people underscored that the needs of the two genders differs greatly.

I guess there is nothing new there.

But apparently, according to the survey conducted by Empirica Research–an Aussie think tank–two thirds of men surveyed (75 percent) valued their partner being good at intimacy more than being good in the kitchen.

For women, it was the reverse. 77 percent claimed they were impressed with a man who could cook them a hot meal. And over half would pick a hot meal over time in the bedroom. (9 out of 10 even admitted they preferred a hot meal to a bouquet of flowers.)

As for chores, women also found it attractive when men did traditional domestic chores, such as the laundry, vacuuming and cleaning the toilets, as opposed to things like mowing the lawn and being a handy man.

We’ve always been told the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. I guess that needs to be change to “woman.”
