Here's what REALLY makes men and women happy, according to a ridiculous survey

Heads up: It’s not having fun. Or being with your family. Or anything like that.

LOVE. FRIENDS. FAMILY. Do these things make people happy? Evidently not, if this survey is anything to go by.

Over 850 men and women were polled by for a seemingly pointless study by OnePulse, which asked them to choose what made them happy from a list of eight options.

And the thing that makes most women happy is – drum roll, please – noticing they’ve lost weight. HMM.

Here are the rest of the results, in order of popularity:

  • Buying new items
  • Receiving flowers
  • Having their favourite takeaway
  • Hotel or transport upgrades
  • Having a bottle of wine at lunch
  • Social media followers
  • And their other half paying for dinner

Yes, 24% of women said they prefer losing weight to wine and takeaways. This just doesn’t seem right.

As for the guys? Well, they like having stuff. Around 25% of men said “buying new items” makes them happy, with the rest of the list looking like this:

  • Noticing they’ve lost weight
  • Having their favourite takeaway
  • Watching football on TV
  • Hotel or transport upgrades
  • Having a beer at lunch
  • Social media followers
  • And their other half paying for dinner

So now, lads, you know what makes you happy.

Y’know what really brings us joy? More joy than noticing we lost weight? A nice lie in. A pint, some pals, and a chat. And pizza. Oh lord, pizza.
