The majority of Scottish couples are opting for a cosy night in rather than a night on the town this Valentine’s Day, a new survey reveals.
The poll by Aldi Scotland shows that 65% of couples are set to stay at home this Valentine’s Day, with 18% opting to go out for the special occasion.
The main reason for an at-home date night was the overpriced meals around Valentine’s Day (40%) and not wanting to spend money on dining out (31%), the survey reveals.
Steak dominated as the most popular dine-in dish for men and women in Scotland, closely followed by pasta, which was revealed as the top romantic dinner choice for 41% of respondents aged 16-24-years-old.
Graham Nicolson, Group Buying Director at Aldi Scotland, said: “Food plays such an important role in modern dating and the age-old phrase “the way to a man – and woman’s – heart is through their stomach” really does ring true.”
