9 out of 10 Pinoys prefer funny partners vs. good-looking ones
But it wouldn’t hurt if your partner has both qualities, right?
Ana Roa of the Philippine Daily Inquirer reports that "someone who is funny but ugly or unattractive is preferred by nine in 10 adult Filipinos to someone who is good-looking but has no sense of humor, a new Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey released Wednesday (February 12) shows."
According to the report, the survey asked 1,550 adult respondents all over the country the question: "Which of these two statements will you choose: a man/woman who is ugly/unattractive but can make you laugh or has sense of humor, or man/woman who is good-looking but has no sense of humor?" Based on the results, 92 percent of those living in Metro Manila said they will choose a funny person over someone who's just good-looking, while 90 percent of those in other areas in Luzon and Visayas expressed the same sentiment. Around 88 percent of respondents in Mindanao also gave the same answer.
The non-commissioned survey was conducted on Dec. 11 to 16, 2013 and was released by the polling agency in time for Valentine's Day.
