If you still stalk your ex on Facebook, you're in the minority.

We might all joke about keeping tabs on our former loves thanks to the voyeuristic  wonders of social media, but only one in four have admitted to it.

24% of Irish people surveyed by GiftsDirect have confessed to checking up on their ex on Facebook or Instagram in the past year, while 20% confirmed they did their research on a new love interest in the early stages of a relationship.

As many of us have long suspected, we are not a national of romantics as most said they will spend a whopping €35 this Valentine's weekend. Thankfully 24% of that will be spent on wine and just 4% on lingerie.

But the biggest treat to keep people satisfied this Saturday? Sleep.

11% said they will enjoy a lie-in this weekend.
