Only 13.2 per cent of you think that romance is dead, with the widest-eyed romantics being in the Highlands, where every single one of our respondents think romance is still alive and kicking.Almost a third of you think online dating is perfectly normal in this day and age, and more than a quarter of you use text messaging to keep in touch with your partner.
With no relatives nearby to watch my son, my dating life is restricted to Monday nights and alternate weekends.
The schedule makes intimacy difficult and the dating (and mating) dance tends to be, well, not very easy.
