MEDFORD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — How much will a person spend on their significant other for Valentine’s Day? A survey by the financial services company Bankrate found that men are expected to spend an average of $339 on their partners for Valentine’s Day, while women will only spend about $60.
WBZ NewsRadio’s Bill Marcus spoke to people in Medford, Mass. about the survey and their expectations for Valentine’s Day.
“That’s the stupidest thing I think I’ve ever heard in my life,” Andre Davis, from Chelsea, said. “That is just a waste of money. Whatever you can get for $300 from a woman, you can get for free.”
Karen, from Medford, said it depends on how long the relationship is.
“So, if it’s like a new relationship, I don’t know, like 100 bucks,” Karen said. “I’ve been married for almost nine years, so I expect much more from my husband.”
