What makes people in Yorkshire & The Humber tick? Is it good looks, lots of money - a good job? Think Money carried out some research in order to find out. The results are interesting, to say the least.
Does money make Yorkshire-women more attractive?
It seems that people who are attracted to women in Yorkshire really don't care about their money.
Only 1% said that money was an important consideration when looking for a female partner. Not one single person in Yorkshire and the Humber said that their potential female partner having a good job was a priority. It's worth noting that this is probably down to a margin of error in the research, as the UK average was 3%.
People attracted to women in Yorkshire find their sense of humour (63%), good looks (47%) and intelligence (41%) to be much more important.
Does money make Yorkshire-men more attractive?
12% of people attracted to men in Yorkshire thought it was important for their potential partner to have a good job. Interestingly, however, money seemed to have very little to do with it - because only 2% thought that money was a priority when looking for a partner.
If you're a Yorkshire-man, having a sense of humour (77%), being a good conversationalist (57%) and your intelligence (37%) will apparently get you much further than having a lot of money.
Men and women in Yorkshire seem to have a pretty good idea of what they're looking for in a partner.
It's a different story, however, when it comes to what they think other people are looking for.
For example, 58% of men and 69% of women seemed to agree that men valued good looks most highly in a partner. However, 12% of men thought other men valued money in a partner, compared to 1% of women.
Both men and women seemed to think that women found money more important than they actually do. 35% of women said other women would prioritise a high salary in a partner, and 22% of men agreed. A similar amount of men (28%) and women (31%) seemed to think that a good job was important to women.
A spokesperson from thinkmoney explained: "When we asked men and women what they value in a partner, they named traits that were centred around personality. When we asked about what they thought other people valued, however, the answers seemed to revolve more around the superficial - such as good looks and having lots of money. This suggests that we may stereotype others more than we think."
