If flirting isnt your forte, dont bother.
All you have to do is learn how to make an excellent cuppa and love will come your way, according to a new study.
Ahead of National Tea Day tomorrow (21 April), dating app Plenty of Fish has revealed that tea plays a major part in dating.
Out of 2,500 participants, over a fifth of singles agreed that superb tea-making skills are a major turn-on.
And making a bad one could cost you a date.
The criteria is harsh; those surveyed revealed that if someone made them weak tea (37%), put in too much sugar (17%) or over-brewed their cuppa (13%) it would put them off.
Another 10% said putting in a milk substitute would be a deal-breaker, as would pouring in the milk before the water for 9% of participants.
If youre already in a relationship, you might find it worthwhile to memorise how your partner takes their tea.
The study revealed that 69% thought this was important, among women in particular.
And if youre trying to impress your lover, you could always say youll have what theyre having – one fifth of participants said this makes you more attractive.
Then again, you could be forced to forever drink a cuppa that you consider subpar, so do this at your own risk.
