HOUSTON – More women than men believe financial responsibility makes for a good romantic partner, according to a new survey.

Nerdwallet surveyed more than 2,000 Americans about love and spending in January. It found 44% of female participants say a potential partner's financial status rather than their physical attractiveness. 

Only 35% of the men preferred personal finances over physical features. 

For participants 18 to 34-years-old, however, more men than women thought financial situation is more important toward picking a significant other. 

The survey also revealed millennials in relationships spend more than any other age group on Valentine's Day. It says millennial men on average spend $371 on their date.
