Louanne Ward, a relationship coach from Perth, Western Australia busted myths about romance in an interview with Daily Mail Australia. “Commercial hype or the most romantic day of the year? However, you perceive Valentine’s Day, there’s no denying it dominates conversation every February.” Adding, “To gift or not to gift? How soon is too soon to celebrate? Do I go all out or keep it simple? These questions become even harder to answer when we’re overwhelmed by traditions and myths surrounding the way men and women like to celebrate.” Also Read - Valentine's Special: Shraddha Kapoor Delivers A Special Valentine's Day Message For All Her Fans!

Couple Split on V-day or two days before Valentine’s Day
Louanne told Daily Mail Australia, “It turns out while many singles are desperate to find a date before February 14, their coupled counterparts are desperate to call it quits”.
“Moving out of the festive season can draw up tension and issues that, when left unresolved into the New Year, translate into a heightened desire to break up before the season of love truly reaches fever pitch,” she added. Nearly 50% of Australians surveyed revealed they have had a fight with their partner on Valentine’s Day.
Women more romantic than men
She further stated that 58 percent of people are of the opinion that women are more romantic than men but 42% said that’s not the case. Louanne also said that women are pickier than men when choosing a partner.
Don’t gift her Red roses
The research further says that most women don’t prefer red roses on this day, it’s not their first choice.
However, another survey by IllicitEncounters.com says that peak dumping time is two days before the big day, in fact, most of them dump their partner over a text, as per The Sun.
