Brit guy date preparation 'longest in Europe'
When a guy swaggers into a date all nonchalant you might be mistaken to think that he just threw on whatever clothes he could find.
But a new survey has revealed that guys, just like girls, take ages to prepare for a big date.
Guys in the UK spend more time preparing for a date than any other males in Europe, beating even so-called Italian stallions in the mirror-hogging stakes.
Around 25 per cent of British guys spend more than two hours preening themselves before a big date, while Italians on average spend one hour and 13 minutes, a survey by Scottish Widows found.
Germans take the least time getting ready, spending an average of just 59 minutes in front of the mirror.
Paula Sutherland, consumer affairs spokeswoman for Scottish Widows, said: "The rise of the modern day metrosexual man, who takes time over his style and appearance, coupled with the Beckham effect certainly play a part in explaining this new found vanity.
"It's fascinating to see how long it takes both m en and women to prepare for a big date across Europe and I'm sure it comes as a surprise to many that Britons spend longer than any other nation."
