Men spend much more on Valentine’s Day with higher expectations

It’s less than a week until Valentine’s Day, so here’s hoping you meet your partner’s expectations. A survey from Bankrate found men will spend an average of $339 on their partner’s this year, while women will spend just $64.

However, women also said they only expect their partner to spend an average of $154 on their gifts, while men wish their partners would shell out an average of $211. Experts aren’t sure what causes this big difference between the sexes, but suspect it might be due to societal views of masculinity as well as wage differences between women and men.
