Cooking done with care is an act of love!
London (PRWEB) February 11, 2013
It is no coincidence that the results of the Dinner4Date.com Survey 2013 are being published just a few days before Valentine’s Day. Romance is hot and the dating market is a multi-billion dollar business. According to the latest numbers over 20% of the married couples found each other either online or speed dating. And as part of the mating game, food is crucial in finding the right person. The old phrase ‘The love of a man (and a woman) goes through the stomach’ is not without reason and it is no surprise that 91% of the participants decided to cook for their date before getting serious.
