Armenians don’t get enough love, or if they do, they fail to see it, according to Bloomberg.
In 2006 and 2007, Gallup went to 136 countries and asked people, “Did you experience love for a lot of the day yesterday?” And while the global average is 70%, only 29% of Armenians responded “yes” to the question. Thus Armenia is on the last place among 136 countries of the world. Embarrassing!
We are in an interesting company, along with Uzbekistan and Mongolia, which are placed 135th and 134th respectively.
I wouldn’t be an Armenian if I didn’t compare us to Georgians and Azerbaijanis. There must be something in the air or soil… Georgian’s aren’t faring well either, they are on the 132nd place. And Azerbaijanis, with all that oil wealth and great caviar are only 126th.
Clearly, money is not part of the love formula as far as this particular survey is concerned. You see, Filipinos are the first in the ‘love ranking’ having scored 93% ‘yes’ answers, followed by Rwanda (92%) and Puerto Rico (90%).
