Pinoys getting less happy with love life – SWS survey
MANILA, Philippines – Could this be a sign that there really is no forever in love? (#walangforever)
In the recent surveys by pollster Social Weather Stations (SWS), results show that some Filipinos are becoming less satisfied with the state of their love lives.
Based on the last 3 years of its survey on love (2011, 2012, and 2014), a declining trend in the happiness with the status of their love lives is noticeable in responses through the years.
The results also show that since the 2011 survey, more and more are feeling they could be happier with their love lives.
Meanwhile, in just two years (2012 and 2014), a decline in happiness among some committed Pinoys – except married women – is apparent. The trend holds particularly with those who have live-in partners.
This trend, however, may be contradicting other studies. A McCann Worldgroup survey shows that Filipinos are among those who would say "I love you" more often. It even concluded that "Filipinos are the most romantic of all Asia Pacific nations who rank in the top 10."
The country was even recognized in 2013 as the "most romantic destination" based on a consumer survey.
As for the survey, at least there's some consolation: those who are happy with their love lives still outnumber those who wish it could be happier (though the difference between the two has declined in the last surveys).
