A date on Valentine’s Day is nice and all, but a Match.com survey found that 79 percent of singletons would rather watch a great movie alone than go out on a “boring” date on V-Day. True, it’s tough for snooze-worthy dinner companions to compete with George Clooney in The Descendants or, well, anyone in The Help.
But lest we think that romance is dead, Match also found that 81% of singles “would rather spend Valentine’s Day enjoying a romantic meal than receive a $100 gift card to their favorite store.” At least consumerism hasn’t devoured everything sacred.
Here are the rest of singles’ Valentine’s Day wishes, according to Match:
A smartypants: Move over, Zoolander: “68% of singles say it’s more important that their Valentine’s Day date is a great conversationalist than really good-looking.”
Taking things slow: ”Only 39% of respondents said they absolutely expect action if they are dating someone on Valentine’s Day. 61% said it’s not an expectation.”
Red roses: They’re classics for a reason. “78% said that red roses are sweet, while 22% think they’re cliché.”
Jen or George: ”Jennifer Aniston was men’s top choice for a celebrity dream date on Valentine’s Day, with 31% of votes, while ladies chose George Clooney (29%).”
Hmmm? We’re sorry, what? We were picturing Clooney on our doorstep with a bouquet of red roses, and we definitely expect some action.
