Have you seen the signs?

Valentine's Day is a time for extremes. There are loved-up couples canoodling over cafe menus, without a care they’ll pay inflated prices. Having someone to cuddle makes it worth it!

VDay is not only red-hot for romance but red-hot for heartbreak. So here are the seven signs to look out for so you won't be surprised if a split is sprung on you...

What are the seven signs you could be single again on Valentine’s Day?

A Split Might Be Coming Sign No. 1

He’s always been a cheapskate and with Valentine’s looming, you fear his trouser pocket’s tightening over his wallet.

Mention a meal out and he gets the hump the rest of the evening…or longer.

A Split Might Be Coming Sign No. 2

Previous years he’s made some attempt to celebrate Valentine’s – a gift, a card, a surprise meal. But this year he hasn’t even noticed it looming. Let alone made any plans.

A Split Might Be Coming Sign No. 3

You notice he seems a bit panic-stricken, or uneasy about things. Or you mention Valentine’s coming and he withdraws from any chat about it.

If you haven’t been together that long - and his previous relationships have been short-term - this time of year can kill off a fledging relationship for someone with commitment issues.

A Split Might Be Coming Sign No. 4

When you hint the day of romance is ‘round the corner, he groans and rolls his eyes.

And in fact, he increasingly treats you with contempt when you make any suggestions about what you two should do. He’s simply not thinking about you being a ‘two’ anymore.

A Split Might Be Coming Sign No. 5

He hasn't bothered messaging over the crucial pre-Valentine’s week. He goes on the missing list and can’t bother to give you a good explanation.

A Split Might Be Coming Sign No. 6

He's started talking about regrets like the opportunities he’s missed, the choices he has made, and the lads’ holiday he wished he’d gone on.

Beware, such life-regrets often include regrets about being in a relationship, full stop.
