According to the study,three out of four will become besotted at least once before they even turn 20,and the average Briton then settles down at the age of 27,a media report said.
But more than four in 10 admit they went for “second best” because the person they have ended up with isnt the one they loved the most.
In fact,61 per cent of those admitted they regretted letting “The One” go and making do with someone else.
The survey of 2,000 adults for Opera North found that a lucky 33 per cent settle down with their first love.
