Why ‘Mr. Wrong’ could be a ‘Mr. Right’

When you’re in the dating world, it’s not unusual to be drawn to a certain type of person. Perhaps they’re smart, funny and attractive. Or maybe they’re down-to-earth, athletic and kind. But could ruling out someone who isn’t your type on paper mean you’re missing out on finding Mr. or Mrs. Right?

New research frm eharmony which matches singles according to compatibility, shows that over a third (37%) of Brits have found love with someone who isn’t their traditional type. Yet over half (58%) of those polled admit they avoid dating matches that don’t tick every box, meaning some 39 million of us could be missing out on finding ‘the one’.

Four in 10 love seekers (40%) admit they have a type when it comes to dating (39% men v 41%) women). However, the biggest distinguishers in the desirability league boil down to physical characteristics such as hair colour, height, and body size.

Aston spoke to dating expert at eHarmony Rachael Lloyd.
