Why going all out for Valentine’s Day could help save your relationship



If your relationship is on the rocks, then you should aim to go all out this Valentine’s Day.

Nearly a third of Americans strongly agree that Valentine's Day could be a make or break for their relationship this year, according to a new study.

A OnePoll survey of 2,000 adults found that an additional 29% of those polled somewhat agree with that statement. Interestingly, 63% of all men were more likely to feel this way.

While many view Valentine’s Day as a fake holiday meant to sell cards and other gifts, others may see it as a day to show their appreciation toward their loved ones.  

And if you think putting forth the bare minimum is enough this year, then you may want to re-think that strategy.

The survey also found that 43% of respondents have an ex romantic partner they would get back together in a heartbeat.


Over half of the men polled (52%) shared they would get back with an ex, compared to 36% of women and 33% of respondents who identify with another gender.

Gen Z was revealed as the generation that would most be “in love with their ex,” with 65% of Americans aged 18 to 25 saying they’d re-ignite old flames. Almost half of millennials admitted they have that one special ex, too (49%).

Wherever you stand with your partner this V-Day, dinner and some flowers could go a long way in making sure the seams stay stitched this year.
