AP-WE TV poll: Valentine's bliss outweighs dread

AP-WE TV poll: Valentine's bliss outweighs dread

WASHINGTON (AP) - Just in time for Valentine's Day, an Associated Press-WE TV survey finds most adults excited about the holiday and looking forward to a gift on Friday.

Flowers and candy are the most preferred gifts. Smaller numbers prefer something pricey like a car, jewelry or vacation. About a third would most like to have intangibles such as time together, health or happiness. 

According to the poll, which was conducted by GFK, two-thirds of paired-off adults feel their relationships are near perfect. Just 3 percent think their partnerships have serious problems.

In this love-struck society, 61 percent say they're excited about Valentine's Day, while 32 percent dread it.

For the 11 percent of adults currently seeking a committed relationship, traditional methods of finding a date outpace those that rely on technology.
