New research has found that three quarter think it is possible to fall in love with someone just by setting eyes on them, a media report said.
But nine in 10 who believe it said it had never happened to them.
Nearly one in three said there is no such thing as love at first sight – half saying it takes months to fall in love, with a few believing it takes years.
The most romantic part of the UK is the North-west, where eight in 10 believe you can fall for a stranger on looks alone.
London came out as the least romantic city with just over half believing in love at first sight.
