No Valentines This Year? Maybe Your Home is to Blame

Tagged in:

Affairs of the heart always are hard to fathom. But a new survey provides some insight, revealing how your home affects your love life.

If you’re an adult living with your parents, the only Valentine you probably got is from your nobody-will-ever-love-you-as-much-as-your mother. A new survey shows that only 5% of unmarried U.S. adults would prefer to date someone living with their folks.

For the sake of your love life, move out already, the Trulia survey of 1,000 adults shows.

If you’re a guy, get a house in the suburbs — 37% of women want that white picket fence. And if you’re a gal, get a snappy one-bedroom in the city — 32% of men want a city-dwelling woman.

And, to stack the odds even more in your favor, buy — don’t rent: 36% of women surveyed found home ownership a turn-on.

Did your love life pick up after you got your own place?
