Women over 50 prefer old-style romance

Heart matters

 Forty-two per cent women aged 50 or above said hearing their partner saying “I love you” was the best way to their hearts, closely followed by going on a dream holiday (40 per cent), according to a survey by the British Heart Foundation.

Senior cardiac nurse June Davison said: “It seems the best way to make a woman swoon is by telling her you love her before tucking her up in bed for a good night’s sleep.

“Our survey was a bit of fun but there’s nothing funny about the fact that heart disease kills three times more women than breast cancer,” she added, a statement said.

Such women also prefer a good night’s sleep than receiving sexy lingerie as a gift. In fact, only one in 20 women of this age group said sexy lingerie gets their heart racing.

Surprisingly, one in six women opted for a good night’s sleep to get their hearts in a flutter, the survey said.
