Happy Valentine's Day?

Okay, I must admit, that even as a men’s rights activist, I really like Valentine’s Day. It’s a day where people are nice, give each other gifts and look happy to be together. Other people feel differently. Here is a recent survey showing that men, however, are feeling that they carry more of the Valentine load:

A new survey says men feel they put the most work in on Valentine’s Day.

Groupon surveyed 1,000 Americans in relationships for the research, asking them to rate themselves on how much effort they put toward Valentine’s celebrations.

Men surveyed said they put in 10 percent more effort than women do, and the average man plans to spend $217 on gifts this year. The average woman plans to pay around $99.

If you have any thoughts on Valentine’s Day–either positive or negative, please share them in the comments.
