What do you wish your girlfriend / boyfriend would quit doing? Japan answers that!
If you have a girlfriend / boyfriend, maybe you might want to take notes. This survey was conducted in Japan and asked the simple question. It has been a long time since I posted a survey, but this was a funny one and I did not want to pass this chance.
Over the 25th and 26th of November 2011 1,074 members of the goo Research online monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 57.4% of the sample were female, 11.6% in their teens, 14.7% in their twenties, 26.9% in their thirties, 25.0% in their forties, 11.1% in their fifties, and 10.7% aged sixty or older. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.
