HAMBURG - Germans looking for a partner say that their circle of friends is the first place to start searching, followed by the workplace, rather than going online according to a recent survey commissioned by the TV magazine "Bildwoche".

The survey by the Emnid polling institute questioned 891 persons, and found that 30 percent said they found their partners through their circle of friends.

This was followed by 21 percent who said the workplace was where they found their partners. For 18 per cent, their relationship began in the disco, while 9 percent said they broke the ice with a bit of conversation in a cafe.

Online chats and flirts, on the other hand, were at the bottom of the list, with only 1 percent of the Germans surveyed saying they found a partner through the internet, the Emnid poll showed.
