Singletons from Dublin’s Foxrock believe they are funnier on dates than anyone else in the country, new research has revealed.

Data released by online dating website EliteSingles found that members from Foxrock believed they were more craic on a date than other Dubs, or indeed singletons around the country.

The website’s 60,000 Irish users took part in a survey where they were asked to rate their humour, and singletons in Foxrock ‘strongly agreed’ to the statement ‘I often make other people laugh’, more than anyone else in the country.

Online daters in Dublin’s south side came off worse in the research which found that singletons in Blackrock, Dalkey and Ringsend were also very confident of their ability to make others laugh.

However, Salama Marine, the lead psychologist for EliteSingles said that having confidence in your ability to make another laugh can only be a good thing.

"Laughing together is probably the best sign of a healthy relationship for a couple. Humour and self-mockery definitely help to forge happy memories and the ability to make each other giggle with just a glance creates a strong friendship between two people,” she said.

While daters in Foxrock may think they’re the funniest, it is singletons in Waterford who are the most amorous, according to a recent survey by the website.

The study found that people who live in Waterford are more keen to get busy beneath the sheets than any other county, closely followed by Wicklow and Dublin.

The research surveyed more than 30,000 users throughout the country and rated them on their lust levels.

The survey called out respondents to react to the statement ‘I have a strong desire for sex’ on a scale of one to five.

Other lusty counties included Kildare, which rated in fourth place, Cork and Tipperary.
