Valentine's Day is just around the corner now and I'm sure people all over are panicking trying to figure out what to get their significant other for the occasion.

Whether you opt for a heartfelt mixtape and a cosy takeaway or go for the full sha-bang and splash out on flowers, chocolates and a fancy dinner reservation - V-Day can end up being pretty pricey for us all.

So, to help us all out, one survey has revealed exactly how much your partner expects you to spend on February 14.

The tell-all survey in question was conducted by consumer review site, Trustpilot, and found out the eye-watering amount of cash romantics forked out for Valentine’s Day.

Far from being a totally romantic affair, the special day is seemingly stressing couples out all over with the survey finding that of those who plan to celebrate this year, more than one third (34 per cent) are worried about spending.

In fact, the survey explains, one in 10 stated they are more stressed about the cost of Valentine’s Day than they are about their own job.

Yikes.

With all that said, however, Trustpilot put the average Valentine's Day spending to a hefty $157.52, which is around £123.

"People are feeling under more pressure than ever before to splash out on loved ones," Trustpilot Chief Customer Officer Alicia Skubick explained.

According to the data, those who've been together for one to two years are more likely to go big - often dropping $247, whereas those in shorter-term relationships spend $186.

And the survey says that one in ten participants said they'd end things with their significant other if there was no gift, even if they are only well received 13 per cent of the time.

No pressure there then.

We spoke to dating coach Hayley Quinn about the concept of soulmates and if they really do exist.

Turns out they most definitely do.

Kicking things off to a positive start, Hayley told Tyla that while a soulmate may be a partner you're 'truly connected' with, the good news is that there's not just one person out there in the world for you.

Hayley says singletons should start their soulmate hunt from 'a space of abundance' - meaning a seeker should recognise that there are actually heaps of potential love interests out there who will have the necessary qualities you're looking for.
