New trend for Valentine's Day 

There's a new dating trend out to ruin your Valentine's Day. People are dumping their significant other to avoid getting them a gift. 

It's called "valentighting," and doesn't just have to do with being cheap. 

Valentighters are also afraid that buying the person a gift could signal that you're making an investment in the relationship.

A survey by Illicit Encounters revealed more couples break up, during Valentine's week, than any other time a year.

More than 37% of people surveyed broke up with their significant other the week prior to the love holiday.
