A blurb I came across in the Nottingham Metro:
BRITAIN’S SINGLES ARE SOOOOOO LONELY
Single people in Britain are the loneliest in Europe, research shows. Just over half of all unattached folks in the country admit to often feeling all alone. Ther single status may be because they are also the worst flirts in Europe – three-fifths prefer not to make the first move, said the poll by dating service Parship.
In their defense, the British weather is absolute shit therefore increasing the tendency towards depression and loneliness.
As well, I believe the poll would have shown different results if the population was interviewed while they were drinking. There is a lot of love and ‘un’lonely people in the bars at night.
