Britain Is Moving In Favor Of Sustainable Long-Term Relationships
A new study says that flings are no more the 'in-thing' as an overwhelming 95 percent of Britons want a long-term relationship.

A further two-thirds favored marriage as it showed commitment, the LoveGeist Report 2009, which polled more than 16,000 people, found.

Report author Dr. Monica Whitty, a Nottingham Trent University psychologist, said: "A new cultural shift is afoot.

"It suggests Britain is moving away from its throw-away culture in favor of sustainable long-term relationships."

Jason Stockwood, of match. com, which commissioned the report, said this was behind a surge in internet dating.

He said: "Dating sites allow you to be specific about what and who you want."
