While Bristol men are generous with their Valentine’s Day spending, those in Sheffield were found to be the most romantic, spending an average of £63 on their partners.
Flowers and a box of chocolates were the top purchases that Bristol men said they were making this Valentine’s Day.
But women surveyed said they wanted to be whisked away on a hotel and romanced or be cooked for.
Bristolians also voted Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge as their most inspiring romantic couple in the survey.
Corinne Sweet, relationship psychologist, said: “The high cost of romance is not surprising in today's ‘easy buy / time poor’ culture. Many people, especially men, spend money to please or appease, when their partners would simply like to have more time, thought and appreciation from them.
“It's easy to click a button or flash a card to buy love, in comparison to spending some quality time together, cooking a meal, giving a massage or making a card. However, the personal touch, the little thoughtful gesture, is often more a sign of true love and commitment than extravagant, over the top romantic gestures.”
