World's Oldest Tweeter Ivy Bean talks to Dating Trail about "getting sloppy!"

  • What would you call a kiss? Dating Trail Treks the Nation -

The world's oldest Tweeter, Ivy Bean, has exclusively told DatingTrail.co.uk that her favourite way to describe a kiss is "getting sloppy" and that "her sloppy days are over." This makes Ivy the oldest person DatingTrail.co.uk recently surveyed, out of 2,000 people in the UK, to find out Britain's top kissing term.

DatingTrail.co.uk, the hottest and easiest new site for single men and women to find dating fun, romance and maybe more, has run the length of the country and chatted-up to guys and girls in all the biggest and happening cities about what they would personally call kissing.

The nation's favourite is "snog" with a massive 58% of the vote. Coming in close second is "smooching," followed barely just by "making out," "necking," "pulling," "tonguing," "Frenching" and "hooking up."

Young birds and blokes on a night out are way more likely to say words like pulling, making out and snogging, while older ladies and gents would call a kiss necking or smooching - so keep that in mind next time your Gran brings someone home!

Andrew Summersgill, director at DatingTrail.co.uk, comments: "We're so glad Ivy Bean was able to comment on this for us! We're all fans here at DatingTrail and it's really interesting to look at generational differences - we'd not heard of 'getting sloppy' before we talked to Ivy, which just goes to show how different words go in and out of fashion. It's so interesting from a language point of view."

"As well as the age differences, to me these results prove it's useful to know the local lingo throughout the UK and what not to say. One lad we talked to from Edinburgh told us he said 'snog' on a trip to London and almost got laughed out the pub - his mates down south said only 13 year old girls would say that, even though it was most popular everywhere else! It just goes to show how use of language changes and develops depending on all sorts of factors, from the more obvious age gap right down to areas you live in and how much you earn."
