Valentine’s Day is the Best Time to Catch Your Cheating Mate
Posted Aug 25 2008 3:07pm
Most people don’t associate infidelity with Valentine’s Day. In addition to being the most romantic time of the year, Valentine Season (February 13, 14, and 15) is the time period when infidelity and extramarital affairs reach a peak.
The National Retail Federation predicts that over $17 billion will be spent on Valentine's gifts this year. We all know that a sizeable chunk of that money will be spent by cheaters buying cards, flowers, candy, jewelry, lingerie and other Valentine’s Day gifts for the people they’re cheating with.
On or around Valentine’s Day, cheaters everywhere will either be giving gifts to, or receiving gifts from their secret lovers. You can use this fact to your advantage if you suspect infidelity, or if you already know you have a cheating mate. This is the ideal time to catch the cheater with the Other Woman / Other Man, or to get tangible proof of the affair.
A cheating husband or boyfriend HAS to buy the “Other Woman” a Valentine’s Day gift. There’s no way around it, if he wants to stay in her good graces -- and in her bed. More than likely, if they live or work in close proximity to each other, he will personally give her this gift.
A cheating wife or girlfriend HAS to make herself available to receive the obligatory Valentine’s Day gift from her secret lover.
If your spouse or significant other is missing for several hours on Valentine’s Day, the day before, or the day after, the “Great Gift Exchange” is probably taking place.
His Paper Trail
Regardless of how a cheating husband or boyfriend pays for the Other Woman’s Valentine’s Day gift, his purchase will leave a paper trail. ATM slips, bank statements, credit card bills and store receipts all contain valuable clues – where or when the transaction took place, and what was bought, or how much money was withdrawn or spent.
Suspicious Gifts to Her
Men with cheating wives or girlfriends should be on the lookout for suspicious Valentine’s gifts. Take note of any new jewelry or sexy lingerie she receives, or that you see her wearing on or around Valentine’s Day. Any jewelry that’s heart-shaped, is a dead give-away. Likewise, red lace, silk or satin lingerie.
