Men spend 24,000 pounds on women before wedding

In a "typical courtship" of about three years and 10 months, unmarried men spend up to 6,367 pounds a year, on holidays and dinner dates, says the poll of 2,000 men by card and gift company Me To You.

The study found that single men spend 761 pounds on a summer holiday and 94 pounds per month just taking their women out to dinner. Romantic nights cost 205 pounds a month.

"It's easy to see how costs can escalate particularly for those who insist on paying the bill every time. But nothing says 'I love you' like a few carefully chosen words," spokeswoman Caroline Weaver was quoted as saying by the Daily Express.
