Voucher codes specialist announces results of latest site user
survey on love and money
31 August 2011 – UK citizens often think of themselves as pretty romantic and the
latest poll conducted by voucher code website DiscountVouchers.co.uk shows that people still won't allow money
to be a barrier to love and relationships.
Almost 40% of people polled reported that they consider there is “no price on love”
when polled about their opinion on how much to pay for an engagement ring. 11% of
respondents still maintain that men should pay twice their monthly wage for an
engagement ring and the poll showed that a further 30% are prepared to spend up to £500 on the token of lov.
When it comes to making a first impression on a potential partner, 75% are happy to
go shopping for a new outfit in advance of a first date. The poll also showed that
65% are happy to split a restaurant bill in half and in a bid to appear in control
of oneself, 67% would not choose the most expensive dish or item on a menu - even if
it might be their favourite food.
In the early stages of a new relationship - the first three months - 57% admit to
being taken out to dinner by a new partner while 46% received gifts of flowers. One
quarter of people said they had been bought jewellery as a gift by new partners and
20% get spoiled with a luxury weekend away. Just 5% of respondents said that their
new other half bought them some new lingerie.
Further on in relationships, the DiscountVouchers.co.uk poll revealed that almost a
quarter would ditch a partner if they believed they were stingy with money. However
on the flip side there were 37% who felt parsimony wasn't a factor in their
relationship - while the same amount would not break up with a partner even if they
came to think that they were somewhat stingy.
The poll also showed new relationships are a pricey business, with 42% prepared to
think about an overdraft to make an impression on a new partner.
When it comes to the next stage after an engagement, a huge 94% of people surveyed
said that they did not believe the family of the bride need pay all the wedding
Doug Scott, managing director of DiscountVouchers.co.uk, comments: “Our latest poll
of site users does reveal that many Brits remain as romantic as ever. Starting out
in a new relationship is certainly a pricey business, but we can help people to save
money on many things to reduce the costs of courting a new love.”
