Nine in ten of those surveyed (89%) said people with an interest in travel are more adventurous. Keen travellers were also thought to be curious about the world (84%), open-minded (75%) and cultured (68%), but one in five singles (19%) admitted they find an interest in travel attractive because it means their potential partner has money to spend on luxuries.
Single people who are looking for love should talk about their travel plans and show off their holiday snaps if they want to attract potential partners, according to a new survey carried out by Intrepid Travel.

The adventure tour operator's poll of members from online dating site MySingleFriend.com found that eight in ten (79%) find a potential partner more attractive if their dating profile lists an interest in travel.

Nine in ten of those surveyed (89%) said people with an interest in travel are more adventurous.

"Having shared interests is important for most relationships, so if you're searching for a partner with a passion for seeing the world, make sure you mention your travel aspirations and show off some of your best holiday or travel photos to boost your chances of finding someone with similar interests," said Sarah Beeny, TV personality and Founder of MySingleFriend.com.

Most singles wait between two and six months before going away with a new partner, but over-35s are the most likely to take a trip within the first month of dating.

For men, the ideal first trip with a new partner involves getting off-the-beaten-track to explore a new culture, or getting active on a sailing, hiking or cycling holiday. Women would prefer to visit galleries, museums and monuments on a city break.
