BASKING RIDGE, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, January 23, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the city known for its towering skyscrapers and bustling streets, a new kind of high-stakes venture has come to light – the quest for love. A revealing survey by Couple.com, polling New York singles, uncovers a startling financial and emotional investment in their pursuit of romance. This groundbreaking study sheds light on the real cost of finding love in the city that never sleeps.

Key Findings:

On average, single men in New York City spend a staggering $2,423 per month on dating-related expenses, which is 63% more than the $1,487 spent by women.

Annually, the average single New Yorker shells out $24,495 on dating, with men spending $29,078 and women $17,840.

Men spend considerably more in categories like dating app subscriptions, bars and clubs, matchmaking services, fitness, transportation, events, and gifts.

With an average of 6 years to find a long-term relationship, men are spending $174,469 and women are spending $107,038.

The Price of Romance in NYC:

The City That Never Sleeps is also the city that spares no expense in the quest for love. New York singles, particularly men, are digging deep into their pockets to find their perfect match. The survey reveals an intriguing aspect of modern dating – the willingness to invest heavily in personal presentation, social activities, and professional services to enhance romantic prospects.

This investment goes beyond traditional dinner dates, encapsulating a lifestyle where fitness, grooming, and even transportation become part of the dating narrative. Some highlights: men budget $346 per month on dinner dates, $190 per month on fitness and gyms, and $171 on tokens of affection, while women budget $132 per month on hair and nail services, $233 on clothing and accessories, and $69 per month on dating-related transportation costs.

In a city where the average rent for an apartment in Manhattan is a whopping $5,588 according to a recent report from Miller Samuel and Douglas Elliman, these dating expenses add a significant financial burden to singles already facing high living costs. Interestingly, despite advancements in technology and the rise of online dating, the journey to find love is longer and costlier than ever.
