Valentine's Day Survey

A new survey by Wallethub reveals that 20% of people think a Valentine's Day gift is worth the credit card debt. Other findings:

- the average American will spend $192.80 on Valentine's Day candy, cards, flowers and gifts. That's up from $175 last year.

- the average cost for a dozen roses this Valentine's Day is $100



Dear Fonseca

Today is Valentine's Day and I feel horrible. Yesterday at work, I bragged about buying chocolates and flowers for my wife. My female coworkers destroyed me. They said the gifts are thoughtless and involved no effort. Here I thought I was doing something great. What woman wouldn't want candy and flowers? Are they a thoughtless gift? Should I be feeling down in the dumps for not putting forth more effort?
