The current economic situation is on everyone’s mind but just how does it impact romance? A nationwide love and money survey by TRUE.com showed that 49 percent of men and 36 percent of women stated they would not curb their dating spending in a tight economy. Only 2 percent of men and 1 percent of women stated that higher gas prices will affect when, where, and how they date.
When it comes to restaurant dining, though, some are looking to save a little money with home-cooked meals. Twenty percent of women and 23 percent of men said they plan to spend less on dining out and focus more on romantic dinner dates at home.
And when it comes to talking about money, the TRUE.com survey found that women are more likely to want to discuss the subject. Thirty-three percent of women said that money talk was their first priority followed by talking about nothing at 29 percent, marriage at 16 percent and sex at 15 percent. The guys, however, had some different ideas. Talking about sex ranked tops at 29 percent followed by nothing at 22 percent and money in third place at 21 percent.
