Most British men living in cities have romantic notions of love and choose to settle down and have children than be womanizers, finds a new survey.
Match.com, which conducted the poll, found that sixty-two per cent of men in London wish to marry compared with 46 per cent in the West Midlands and 47 per cent in Wales.
Also, 78 per cent of London's males admit to wanting a family compared with a national average of 55 per cent.
"London men had developed a reputation of being unromantic but this new information seems to dispel this," the Daily Express quoted Katie Sheppard of Match.com as saying.
She added: "If women are looking for their men to be chivalrous, romantic and committed, they could do far worse than looking for love in the capital."
But the Londoners may be a little slow in expressing their love, as only 31 per cent could say "I love you" to the women they loved.
The study further revealed that men are more likely to want to have children than women - 59 per cent against 50 per cent.
Even in being romantic, they outdid women with 56 per cent believing that feelings would not fade, while only 49 per cent of women agreeing to it.
And finally, the survey suggested that the British men think a perfect life partner would be a 5ft 6in, 31-year-old teacher.
