According to Interflora’s Love Machine (a cool Facebook app), those of us in East Anglia are the most likely to say yes to a marriage proposal.

The flower delivery company surveyed 3000 people across the UK to find out which region is the most romantic. All this data has been stuffed into a Facebook app. Along with the regional information, the survey also shows that those that jointly own a pet are also very likely to get married.

The results were surprising and enlightening, revealing that men and women in East Anglia or the South East are the most likely to say yes to getting married…

  • Men and women living in East Anglia or the South East are the most likely to say yes to a marriage proposal (78% and 77% respectively)
  • Compare that to 58% of men and women in the North East
  • But in the figures for the South East, London is an exception for men, with the percentage of men likely to say yes to a marriage proposal dropping to 52%

(For those who are interested, I tried the Love Machine app. If I propose to the boyfriend there’s a 53% chance he’d say yes. I might hold off…)
