Men spend more for Valentine's Day

February 12, 2006

Valentine's Day is not an occasion of equality between the sexes, a survey found.

Men said they plan to spend an average of $127 for their partner, while the average for women was $74, according to a telephone survey of 1,016 adults last month. More than a third of women, 39 percent, said they didn't plan to spend anything this Feb. 14 for their significant others.

Most men, 71 percent, said they plan a night out on the town, while 66 percent predicted they'll go with flowers on Valentine's Day.

The survey was conducted for Illinois-based Discover Financial Services LLC.
