On around Valentine’s Day, a cheating woman or cheating man will go out of his or her way to see the person with whom they’re having an affair.
When a Valentine’s gift has been bought, it must be personally given or received.
Be very suspicious of any unexplained absences that occur on Valentine’s Day. If your spouse or significant other disappears without an explanation, or uses a flimsy or trumped up excuse to do something that doesn’t involve you, the “Great Valentine’s Day Gift Exchange is probably taking place.

Garrett’s Cheating Valentine Story
Denise told Garret her girlfriend Leeann was depressed because she wasn’t seeing anyone and was spending Valentine’s Day alone. She told Garrett she wanted to go by Leeann’s for a couple of hours to cheer her up and asked if he would mind if they had their Valentine’s dinner later that night. Garrett, being an understanding husband, told Denise he didn’t mind.
About two hours after Denise left, Garrett got a phone call from his brother saying that he and his wife went to a restaurant in the next town for a Valentine’s dinner, and saw Denise at a table in the corner with another man.
Garrett told his brother he was mistaken, because Denise was at Leeann’s house, but his brother insisted that Denise was there.
He was so insistent that Garrett got in his car and drove to Leeann’s house to prove to himself that Denise was there. Sure enough Denise’s car was parked in Leeann’s driveway, but there was no sign of Denise or Leeann.
Garrett parked across the street, a few doors down and waited. Eventually a car pulled into the driveway behind Denise’s car, and Denise got out. Garrett made a U-turn, blocked both cars in the driveway, and made such a scene that the neighbors called the police.
