No one wants to think we’re not our partner’s one and only, but Valentine’s Day can be the perfect time to suss out whether he’s romancing someone else, says Maxwell Billieon, co-author (with reality TV star and former Whitney Houston beau Ray J) of Death of the Cheating Man: What Every Woman Must Know About Men Who Stray. Watch out for the five signs below that Billieon says might indicate you aren’t the only woman in his sights:
1. Your man claims that he has to work or go out of town for Valentine’s Day.
“Men know that V-Day is reserved for the special person in their lives. A man that is faithful will usually reserve that day to be with you no matter what. If a man claims that he can’t be around without proof, then you aren’t the one.”
2. Your man asks you to spend the day after Valentine’s with him instead.
“When a man pushes you to the day after, it usually means he has more important obligations on the day of…get it? That means you aren’t the one.”
3. Your man can only spend Valentine’s Day with you during odd hours.
“Traditionally couples spend the evening of Valentine’s Day together. “Night time is the right time”, as the song says…so unless your man works the night shift, trying to see you for breakfast or lunch, or after hours, means he probably has other obligations during the hours that count.That means, you aren’t the one.”
4. Your man turns his phone off on Valentine’s Day.
“If you can’t get in touch with your man on a day that is supposed to be reserved for you, then you definitely aren’t the one.”
5. Your man gets sexy Happy Valentine’s Day texts, Facebook messages, or tweets from women you don’t know.
“Any faithful and committed man makes sure that other women know he is taken. Single women don’t just randomly send men sexy Valentines Day wishes for no reason, especially not by phone or social network. So if he’s getting hot V-Day wishes from other women via text or the net, it’s probably a case of Social Network Cheating and I’m sorry, but you aren’t the one.”
The takeaway: If he’s not giving you 100 percent of his romantic attention, you deserve better. And after you’ve kicked him to the curb, you can look forward to spending Valentine’s Day 2013 happier than ever.
