A new survey has found that Australian men consider romance more important than sex.
The Daily Telegraph's Great Romance survey quizzed more than 600 people about their level of romance in relationships, what they thought was most romantic and whether romance has a time limit to it.
More than half of the men surveyed said they believed in love at first sight and 56 per cent believed sex was secondary to romance, reports News.com.au.
More than a third said they felt a "racing heart" when they first laid eyes on their partner while close to 80 per cent said they believed in finding their "other half"".
Relationships expert Alex Faloon explained: "Everyone wants the Romeo and Juliet love story. It's just that most people only show that sort of love and affection when they are alone with their artner."
