Some love it – some hate it, but how do RSVP users really feel about Valentine’s Day?
A survey of more than 1000 RSVP members found that while 39% love the day when asked if they thought the day of love was a test the majority responded with a resounding yes.
Users were also asked what they liked about the day, with one saying: “It’s a nice excuse to make some effort to show your partner what they mean to you.”
Another added: “It's a day where you can tell or be told that you're loved.”
However, not everyone is impressed by February 14th, with 17% of survey respondents believing the day is unnecessary and 8% downright hate it. A bulk of people also sit on the fence, with 34% of respondents not being bothered by the day.
Of those who aren’t getting that lovin’ feeling when it comes to Valentine’s Day, on why they didn’t like the day, one said: “The expectation of spending a lot of money on flowers or dinner to prove your love.” Adding: “It also puts pressure on people financially.”
Another user noted: “Some people get too materialistic and forget the real meaning of sharing and showing their affection.”
