Debt ‘not as stressful as loneliness’

While millions of Brits are facing increasingly difficult debt management problems, one fifth of the 500 single citizens quizzed by Parship.co.uk recently cited these issues as their biggest concern, compared with over a half (52 per cent) of respondents who voted for loneliness.

And according to the online dating firm it is loneliness and not debt problems that give single Brits the most sleepless nights.

Despite these assertions financial difficulties are a serious problem for many thousands living in the UK and more than 1.4 million people approached Citizens Advice about debt last year alone.

Furthermore, debt management problems have been compounded for many UK homeowners this month with the news that interest rates have been upped to 5.5 per cent.
