How Men and Women Feel About Valentine's Day?

Share

Because Valentine's Day is near, Men's Health and Women's Health magazines decided to carry out a survey to see how the sexes feel about specific topics linked to this day. The joint survey included questions about Valentine's Day gifts (that couples are willing to give away during the current economic recession), whether making a proposal on Valentines Day is cliche, who should plan the day and more.

The two magazines interviewed 1,000 men and 1,000 women and noticed that both sexes have something similar when it comes to contemporary relationships and Valentine's Day.

Belo are the question and the results of the joint survey.
