    Working late on the Eve of Valentine’s Day

    Did you have to work late on February 13th?

    Cheating men spend more than twice as much on their mistresses than their wives for Valentine's Day, according to a poll.

    The survey of 3,256 actively-cheating husbands, from across the UK, was commissioned by extra marital dating site Ashleymadison.com.

    It reveals that the majority of men will spend will spend £200 to £300 on their mistresses - but only £50 to £100 on their wives for Valentine's Day.

    The research also reveals the most popular gifts with men 15% more likely to buy diamonds for their mistress than their wife.

    Men were 11.9% more likely to buy their mistresses lingerie, but 12.5% more likely to buy their wives chocolates or flowers.

    Seven out of ten male cheats said they planned to see their mistress on February 13 - dubbed 'Mistress Day' - with a hotel being the most likely destination and "working late" the most popular excuse.

    Of course a mistress gets more. The mistress puts out, and stays cute, and doesn't whine about things. Who cares about a stupid wife, she is going to be there day after day without your having to spend money on her to get it. Heck she might not even be giving it anymore at all in which case you should just skip her for Vday.

    Belle,
    You always have very insightful posts, and are wise beyond your years.

    Re: Working late on the Eve of Valentine’s Day

    Another Happy Mistress Day!

    It's a notorious night for men behaving badly.

    Unofficially, Feb. 13 is also known as "Mistress Day," the day that straying boyfriends and husbands set aside for the "other woman" - since they're spending the actual Valentine's Day with their girlfriends and wives.

    "It might not be a nationally celebrated day, but it's at least a day to practice your 'mistress retention' skills," says Noel Biderman, president of AshleyMadison.com, which sets up extramarital trysts for "when monogamy becomes monotony" and boasts 2 million registered members.

    Most cheaters devote the day before Valentine's to keeping their mistresses happy, since waiting until the day after makes them seem like an afterthought.

    "You have to be with them the day before, give them their gift, make them feel special and put that to bed," says Ruth Houston, author of "Is He Cheating on You?" "Then Valentine's Day comes, and now you're free to do whatever with your mate."

    The city's dining industry caters to Mistress Day's unfaithful crowd. "I guess probably in 10 years Hallmark will make a card for it," laughs Scott Stamford, general manager of the ultraromantic River Cafe in Brooklyn. "The demand for reservations the day before is just as high as Valentine's Day." He doesn't know for sure who's supping with whom, but suspects that gentlemen wine and dine the mistress first, as "that's what we hear from hotel concierges."

    Every year customers at cozy One If by Land, Two If by Sea make two reservations during Valentine's week - and ask the staff to pretend that they didn't see them the first time around. "We do have people, and they tell you not to say anything," says general manager Rosanne Martino. "They don't want you to say you saw them earlier."

    City florists see their fair share of infidelity, as well. "There are a lot of men out there who do that," agrees one manager at Off Broadway Florist in Astoria. Cheaters usually charge the wife's bouquet, she notes, while paying for their mistress' buds with cash. "A lot of the time [the mistress' flow-ers] get delivered earlier," she adds, "because he can't spend Valentine's with both women."

    Fortunately (for wives and girlfriends, at least), there's often a trail of evidence that wary women can use to learn the truth. "Mistress Day was actually brought to our attention by our customers," says cheater catcher Todd Morris, CEO of Brickhouse Security. While his company traditionally supplies corporations with security equipment, they're now outfitting more and more worried wives with tiny GPS tracking systems for briefcases, SIM card spying devices for cell phones and keyboard loggers for computers, to catch their dishonorable hubbies in the act.

    He recalls one customer who nabbed her man on Mistress Day after she tracked his movement. "He said he was at a business meeting at the office," Morris says. "She logged in over the Internet and saw where he was going, saw it was a residential neighborhood, and went out and parked her car right outside next to his. She caught him right there coming out the door."

    Naturally, then, the days surrounding Feb. 13 are the best times to pin down a philanderer. "You've got a three-day window where anyone who's cheating will more than likely be making contact with the person they're cheating with," says "Cheating" author Houston.

    Case in point: former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, who booked his infamous tryst with a high-end call girl on Feb. 13, 2008. "He may have felt that he was giving himself a Valentine's Day present," says Houston.

    Well said. I hate to say it but I agree. This practice is not reserved for Valentine's Day because it can be any other day, but I can understand the context.

    Re: Working late on the Eve of Valentine’s Day

    Take extra care this year--Mistress Day is on Friday the 13th.

    Mistress Day is Friday.

    It’s a real thing, defined in Wikipedia and in the Urban Dictionary.

    If you prefer a more judgmental definition, the New York Post in 2011 defined Mistress Day as “When Pigs Romance Mistresses.”

    It’s the day before Valentine’s Day.

    The wife gets Valentine’s Day. So mistresses get their day. For flowers. Lunch. And that heartfelt pledge of fidelity.

    And with that separate day, the man involved can juggle love and charge-card accounts and not cross any wires. Hopefully.

    Mistress Day is Friday the 13th this year.

    Some might say that’s unlucky.

    As divorce lawyer Kathleen Reeves might say: Be careful out there.

    February 13th falls on a Saturday this year. Be creative, the usual excuses may not work.

    Remember your sweethearts tonight. and you wives tomorrow.
    New statistics reveal that 71 per cent of cheating husbands plan to see their mistresses on 13 February, leaving Valentine's Day itself free for a date with their long-suffering wives.
