In conjunction with “Relationship Science Month”, we surveyed over 1,000 adults in the United States, representing 49 states (Alaska, step it up next time!), to learn more about what people really think about Valentine’s Day. Over the coming week, we’ll be sharing our results with you, our readers, including answers to the following questions:
- Do people love, hate, or view Valentine’s Day as “just another day”?
- Would people prefer to spend Valentine’s Day alone, in a bad relationship, or on a bad first date?
- Is it okay to go on a first date on Valentine’s Day? Is it okay to pop the question on Valentine’s day?
- Who should be responsible for planning Valentine’s Day festivities?
- Do people prefer to receive Valentine’s Day gifts publically (e.g., at work) or privately?
- What are the top ranked gifts for men and women on Valentine’s Day?
- What are the most preferred types of flowers to receive on Valentine’s Day? The least preferred?
- Do people expect sex on Valentine’s Day?
- What’s an acceptable amount to spend on Valentine’s Day gifts?
We’ll start rolling out the results very soon. In the meantime, we have provided a description of our study sample below so that we can focus on results in upcoming posts.
