Women 'more clingy' than men

Posted on: April 15, 2013 15:19:17

Women A new study taking a look into the role and value of romantic partnerships and friends has revealed what men and women perceive to be the key to maintaining a successful relationship.

The results found that, as a whole, women tend to let their lives revolve around romance, while men prefer to place their lovers and best friends on an equal but distant footing.

While many UK singles might believe the idea that all women are clingy and all men are nonchalant about dating is nothing more than an outdated stereotype, the findings actually suggest that this could be the case.

Speaking to over 340 people, Oxford University revealed that most females believe the key to romance is teamwork and equal input from both partners, as well as having shared goals and beliefs.

In addition, when asked in the study to rate themselves, their other half and their mates, women most frequently positioned their lover highest – something which the blokes rarely did.

Dr Anna Machin, a researcher at the university said the findings proved that successful relationships are much more essential to a woman's wellbeing.

"Men seem to keep their relationships at arm's length with one eye on the dating market," she said.

In fact, men in the findings were found to keep their mates and significant other at a greater distance than their counterparts. In the same way as the women were asked to rate themselves against their pals and partner on a range of different attributes, men frequently answered as though they were single, despite being in a relationship.

However, both sexes reported 'emotional extremes' with their partner, effects which appear to be buffered by their relationship with their best buddies, the findings claimed.

Responding to the latest insight into the complicated world of romance, Dr Machin said she believed "the war of the sexes is still alive and kicking within our relationships".
