A new study brought to you by Häagen-Dazs ice cream and The School of Life polled 2,000 adults and found that men fall in love far more often than women do, with more than half of men saying they've loved more than one person in their lifetime and only 45 percent of women saying the same [via Independent].
Granted, a study done by an ice cream company is potentially less than scientific, but there are similar studies that seem to back up these findings. A study done by Match.com in 2011 showed that 54 percent of guys said they'd fallen in love at first sight, and only 44 percent of women said they had, which shows that men are falling in love at first sight more often, for whatever that's worth. Another study from VoucherCloud.com that also asked 2,000 people (evenly split between men and women) who were currently in relationships when they fell in love with their partner and men said it took them three months and women said it took them five.
It's tough to say why that's the case, but either way, it's a good enough reason to banish garbage movie plots where the woman falls in love super-quickly and the guy is incapable of love. Zzzzz.
