Valentine's Day is known as the most romantic day all over the globe. Couples spend the day appreciating what they have together and all is meant to be romantic.
Unfortunately, men and women's ideas of what romance is, is completely different.
New research from realbuzz.com shows that men and women hope for very different things on February the 14th.
Traditionally, men will buy women flowers to show their affections towards their partner, and 45 per cent of men believe it's the perfect way to say 'I love you'.
Unfortunately, only 4 per cent of women agree. Oh dear.
Well that's okay right? Women love shopping, what better thing to give her than money to go and spend on something she really wants?
Bad move; fourteen per cent of women said they would dump a man who gave her money as a Valentine's gift.
Three quarters of women would much rather have something personal, like a handwritten letter or poem yet 20 per cent of men find a romantic text message more convenient.
So what do you buy a woman to keep to her happy on Valentine's Day? Most men will buy their lady some sexy underwear as a gift.
Bad news gents, one in five women have never worn the underwear that their partner has bought for them.
If you're thinking of being spontaneous and going with the flow on Valentine's Day, then change your plans quickly.
Nearly two thirds of men admit to having nothing planned for Valentine's Day but 30 per cent of women expect men to have it all planned out.
So why not treat your lady and take her to that restaurant you've both been wanting to try out?
Just a word of caution, you need to be the one footing the bill as a third of women do not expect to 'go Dutch' on Valentine's Day.
You may just think giving up because you'll never get it right might be a good idea? Be warned, 53 per cent of women have said they would dump a guy if he were to give her no gift!
