UNATTACHED Filipinos, or those without relationships, still prefer heterosexual relationships over same sex affairs, according to a survey done by the Social Weather Stations on December 11 to 16, 2013 but which was published in its website on Valentine’s Day.
The survey sampled 1,550 adults in Metro Manila, balance of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao dwelling on the question of the possibility of being in a specific relationship, assuming they don’t have any.
It showed that 13 percent would rather get into a “relationship with a much older” person, 1 percent with a fellow male and 2 percent with a fellow female.
Those who saw “some possibility” of being in a relationship with an older person totaled 23 percent and those who saw no possibility of being in one was 64 percent.
Those who saw “some possibility” of being in a relationship with a fellow male or a fellow female totaled similarly at 3 percent; while those who saw no possibility of same sex relationships totaled 95 percent for both men and women surveyed.
By economic classes, those that said there is a big possibility of getting into a relationship with a much older person reached 8 percent for ABC; 14 percent for D and 13 percent for E.

Those that said there is no possibility for such kind of relationship 80 percent for ABC; 62 percent 62 percent for D and 65 percent for E.
Interestingly, 66 percent of the married respondents said there is no possibility of them getting into a relationship with an older person; 47 percent of those in a relationship said there is some possibility while 65 percent of those unattached said there is strong possibility for them to do so.
