According to a new survey, the average American man will spend $339 on this and the average American woman will spend $154. 


Valentine’s Day


While the average American man spends $339, the average American woman expects him to only spend $64. The women will spend $154 but the men expect the women to spend $211. So the women will have their expectations met and exceeded while the men will have their expectations fall short. (That pretty much sounds like Valentine’s Day in a nutshell.) The Midwest has the lowest expectations among both men and women so our disappointment won’t be quite as bad as in the South where expectations are highest. Also, the longer a couple has been together, the lower both of their expectations are. How much do you think your partner will spend? How much do you plan to spend on your partner?
