Cleanliness more important to lovers than looks or money

CLEANING the toilet is more important than being rich or good looking, say Australia's singles.

They've rated a willingness to share household duties over career aspirations and even looks.

The RSVP Date of the Nation Report 2015, by Nielsen, surveyed more than 3,300 Aussies to find out what factors are critical when deciding whether someone has long-term potential.

Personality was top, at 88%, then came morals (86%), sense of humour (86%), manners (84%), shared interests (82%), sexual chemistry (77%)  and intelligence (77%).

Nearly 70 per cent of people rated willingness to share household duties as important, above age  (67%), social skills (65%), looks (62%), body type (53%), career aspirations (46%), fashion sense (39%), religious beliefs (37%), income (37%) and ethnic background (34%).

What's more important to you in a relationship?

Although more women are concerned about sharing domestic work, the research shows it is important to both sexes, said John Aiken, RSVP Relationship Expert and Psychologist.

A total of 64% of single men and 74% of single women rate willingness to share household duties as important.

"Sharing household duties is a clear sign of fairness, equality and respect for your partner. It's a wonderful, practical way to create a sense of team in your relationship," he said.
