A SURVEY by purveyors of pulling Lynx has revealed that British men think they are constantly ‘eyed up’ by the opposite sex. The poll which surveyed 5,000 men nationwide revealed that most British blokes think they get checked out by women between 4 and 6 times every single day with a large majority claiming it is regularly happening in unusual locations.

The survey asked men to reveal the most unusual places where they have been eyed up in by women and the men of the nation didn’t disappoint. 45% believe to have had a cheeky wink whilst waiting in a doctors or dentists surgery, whilst a large number are convinced that their commute to work is prime time for them to be ogled at by females, over 40% logged that they regularly get female attention on their way to work.

A confident 15% were also convinced that potential female employers were interested in seeing more than their resume during job interviews. Finally, a number of the men claimed to have been found drop dead gorgeous by women attending funerals with 9% of those polled claiming to have exchanged glances whilst in mourning.

Of the men surveyed, the man folk of the North of the England gave themselves the highest ranking for female attention each day, with 35% of respondents from that area claiming to receive the glad eye from women up to 6 times a day. Meanwhile, their southern counterparts were a little more modest with their totals, 30% felt they received female attention at least 4 times a day. The Scots sampled were the most humble of the lot with only 22% of those surveyed admitting that they thought they were looked at least once a day by women.


AS MANY as 20% of people have worried for their personal safety over the last 3 months, according to new research by Legal & General.  With British Summer Time officially beginning on 26 March 2006, the latest findings show that millions of people will be glad to see the back of the long dark winter nights. 11% admit to having been troubled by poor street lighting during the winter - and it’s women (23%), more than men (17%) who have been most concerned for their general safety while out and about.

The Legal & General Safety Uncovered Index, aimed at better understanding the UK’s safety concerns, asked a substantial GB representative sample of 4,000 people which, of a number of safety issues had caused them concern during the last 3 months.

Key Findings:-

* 11% are concerned about bad lighting.

* Women are more concerned than men about dark nights (23% compared to 17% of men).

* Younger people were most worried about dark nights, 22% of 18 to 29 year olds compared to 19% of 50 year olds.

Elaine Parkes, Technical Services Manager at Legal & General’s General Insurance business said:- “Our research has shown that a significant portion of the population feel uncomfortable and fear for their personal safety during the long dark winter nights. Although the nights are starting to get shorter with the clocks going forward this weekend, we would encourage everyone to continue to be just as vigilant about their personal safety during the summer months as they are during winter. This includes avoiding routes that are not well lit and sticking to paths they know so they do not feel so vulnerable.”
