[dropcap letter="T"]he State of Romance in the Philippines, that's what a survey carried out by Nielsen, a measurement and information gathering company, attempted to find out.

The survey interviewed 400 people in Metro Manila. Singles were 18-25 years old (in a relationship for at least 6 months) while marrieds were 26 and above (married for more than five years).

So what do Pinoys and Pinays consider romantic? Here are 8 results from the survey.
