Hopeless romantics

New research reveals that men are more hopeless than romantic when it comes to treating their partners.

More than half of women (55%) have not been surprised with a gift in over a year, while 1 in 5 say they buy their own flowers rather than wait for to be bought them.

Nearly a quarter (24%) of men surveyed said that they buy their flowers at a petrol station.

One in ten men under 25 confessed that they'd passed off a gift from someone else as a gift they'd bought for their partner, while one in five had even given their other half a gift that they had received for free. Only 3% of women said they've forgotten an anniversary compared with nearly 10% for men.

Men are most likely to buy jewellery at an average cost of £81.49 per year with chocolate and treats also high on men's gifts to their other halves - spending £73.66 a year.
