Regular Guys Win More Hearts and Bad Kissers Get a Second Chance This Valentine's Day
A New Study by Landing Mr. Right Shows Women's Preferences for Men, Dating and Love
(NEW YORK) - January 30, 2014 - Move over Adam Levine; Jonah Hill has you beat this Valentine's Day. According to a survey by Landing Mr. Right, a hilarious new board game for single women in pursuit of "the One," 52% of females said they'd prefer to go on a date with a Regular Guy over a Rock Star, Blue Blood, CEO, Triathlete or Techno-Geek. The survey also found that bad kissers still have a shot with women; 72% said they'd still go on a second date, even if the first kiss wasn't what they imagined. Research NowTM conducted the survey, which polled 750 single women aged 23-55 who said they still haven't found "Mr. Right." Other findings include:
Feelings triumph Sex and Money. 80% said they'd prefer to be taken care of emotionally over sexually or financially.
Changing a Facebook status to "In a Relationship" doesn't warrant an introduction to his parents. 63% said it's most appropriate to meet his parents after he says, "I love you."
Contrary to what men think, women are not always talking about them. 59% said they spend less than one hour per week gabbing about their love lives with their girlfriends.
The survey questions were inspired by the NEW board game, Landing Mr. Right, which has just launched in time for Valentine's Day. Created by Alys Daly and Victoria Brewer (both single), Landing Mr. Right has been dubbed "Therapy in a Box" as it helps build confidence and friendship among women.
"We came up with the idea for Landing Mr. Right after I went out on one of the worst dates of my life," said Co-Founder Daly. "We realized what women were really looking for is a fun way to come together, share their stories and offer each other inspiration as they pursue 'the One'."
Landing Mr. Right leads women on a virtual dating journey to find their own "Mr. Right." Along the way, they have the opportunity to date six stereotypical men including: Blue Blood, CEO, Rock Star, Regular Guy, Triathlete and Techno-Geek. Date Cards take women on a worldwide adventure - from Paris to New York - while Your Story Cards tackle everything from online dating to meeting his family. Questions, such as "They're making a Broadway show about your sex life. Is it a comedy, a romance or a one-woman show?" get women thinking, laughing and discovering new things about themselves, their girlfriends and the men they date.
"Landing Mr. Right gives women the opportunity to date outside their comfort zone," says Co-Founder Brewer. "If they've always gone for romantic, yet unreliable Rock Stars, why not roll the die with a loyal and predictable Regular Guy."
