The Price of Love

Researchers say the average bloke can fork out up to £3,125 on a woman while he is wooing her.

That’s the cost of nights out, evenings in and a weekend away in the two months before they are considered a proper couple.

They have three dates a week in the early stages with the man typically spending £33 on each one. He’ll usually cough up £20 on a night in watching a DVD, £30 at the cinema, up to £70 at a posh restaurant, £25 preparing her a meal and as much as £100 on clubbing.

Many women are happy to pay their way but men still fork out the lion’s share, according to the survey. Roughly £2,650 will be spent on dates during courting – and a further £450 goes on the romantic break.
