New research from VoucherCodes.co.uk found that 31 per cent of British singles only want a partner to save money. However, the data suggests that being single may not save you a lot of money, and in fact, you could be better off remaining on your lonesome.

According to the study, couples typically spend 17 per cent, or £153, more per month than those unattached.

One area 56 per cent of singles think you save money on is housing, which makes sense given that a single person would typically take up less space. But, despite popular belief, those in a relationship usually pay 8 per cent more than singles who pay around £392 a month which equates to roughly £425 a month in rent.

On the bill front, 55 per cent of singles believe that given there are two people using water and heating, the bill would be higher. Well, they would be wrong, as couples are feeling a 33 per cent increase in bills and a further 26 per cent in the weekly food shop.

The only area where singles trump loved-up Brits are in clothing and beauty products, where they typically outspend couples by 5 per cent.

When it comes down to disposable income, 33 per cent of couples are likely to spend it on dining out, compared to the 23 per cent of singles who do. The data is a little closer when it comes to takeaways, with 32 per cent of couples opting to order in compared with the 25 per cent of singles.

If you are content being single, unburdened by arguments over dirty dishes, why not stay that way? While couples are out there spending more money than you, treat yourself to that air fryer you keep seeing on TikTok.
