Search For Romance Uncovers True Love Stories

Durex Avanti Search For Romance Uncovers True Love Stories

With stories of candlelit dinners and long distance love affairs, New Zealanders are proving themselves to be a truly romantic nation.

The Durex Avanti Search for New Zealand's Most Romantic Couple is continuing to uncover stories of everyday love, and there are still a few weeks to go with the competition closing on 13 August 2001.

Durex New Zealand Manager Victoria Potter says, it seems Auckland, Dunedin and Wellington are the hot spots for romance.

"We know couples in other centres are just as romantic so we're challenging them to come forward and share their inspirational stories of romance with us."

One Wellington Romeo reports that he met his partner during a visit she made from Invercargill, they talked and they danced and it was love at first sight. An Auckland couple are celebrating their three-year long distance love affair with a wedding in February, while in Dunedin it seems the little things in life strengthen love with one couple reporting a hug a day keeps heart ache away.

The competition has been launched to celebrate New Zealanders' being the first in the Southern Hemisphere to be able to buy new Durex Avanti ? revolutionary non-latex condoms.

"Durex Avanti condoms represent the most significant breakthrough in condom film technology in the last 60 years," says Victoria Potter. "They are made of Duron rather than latex and are super thin for ultimate sensitivity and a more natural feeling."

The technologically-advanced qualities of Durex Avanti condoms also mean they are suitable for people who are allergic or sensitive to rubber latex, and are safe to use with both oil and water-based lubricants.

All couples are invited to enter the Durex Avanti Search for New Zealand's Most Romantic Couple by writing or emailing Durex and explaining why they deserve the title. Entry forms can be completed at participating pharmacies and retail outlets, by visiting www.durex.com, or by emailing durex.nz@xtra.co.nz by 5pm 13 August 2001. All posted entries should be sent to PO Box 37-116, Parnell, Auckland.

The winners will experience a romantic weekend they will never forget with two nights at the luxurious Ascott Metropolis Auckland, a photography session as a momento of their weekend and complimentary Durex Avanti condoms.
