Have you ever felt like your partner missed the mark on Valentine’s Day? Arc, the brand activation agency within the Leo Burnett Group, is here to make sure that this year Cupid’s arrow hits its target. A new survey reveals the truth about how people really feel about Valentine’s Day. Based on the responses of a gender balanced and generationally representative group of men and women aged 21-69, the U.S.-based survey, “Hugs and Disses” uncovers the differences between how men and women approach Valentine’s Day as well as statistics specific to different generations.
Arc shares these national survey results that help us better understand consumer behavior and attitudes surrounding Valentine’s Day. The survey is an extension of Humans Being, an ongoing exploration that pieces together the story of us. It’s a study on the changing face of humanity in culture, society, emotion, values and the human condition.
“As marketers, we’re always seeking to better understand how people think and behave in the real world,” said Nick Jones, EVP, retail practice lead, Arc Chicago. “The survey gives us a glimpse into the personal expectations, purchasing behaviors and attitudes of couples as they celebrate this annual romantic holiday.”
