Men spending more than women for Valentine's Day

Engaged couples spend the most on average


Americans plan to spend more than their significant others expect them to for Valentine’s Day.

Men plan to spend almost 2 1/2 times what their significant others expect from them.

A Lending Tree survey found men plan to spend an average of $95 for Valentine's Day. That's more than double the $41 that women plan to spend, on average. 

Those who are engaged plan to spend the most on average, at $92. People in the dating stage plan to spend $88, and married people plan on spending $57.

Forty-one percent are looking forward to Valentine's Day, while another 5 percent are dreading it, but most don't care one way or the other.
