An online survey found while most people like a well-read date, women are more attracted to bookish men than vice versa. Have you ever fallen in love – or rejected someone – based on their reading list? Share it in the comments below
I once went on a date with a man who, instead of writing a full online dating profile, listed his four favourite books. When asked, he said it seemed simpler than writing a lengthy bio.
It was and it wasn't: the titles he'd included offered a tantalising glimpse into his personality. While I didn't end up discovering whether he was as intriguing as the selection, it was a good place to start the conversation.
