Imagine what would happen if your mushy Valentine's Day message to your concubine ends up with your wife? And though it may seem straight out of a horror movie, it is actually very real, as a survey has found that more text messages reach the wrong recipients, than senders would be ready to bargain for.

With Valentine's day round the corner, love messages-texters have been asked to be cautious against dispatching their messages to the wrong person.

A survey appearing in the Mirror showed that one in four steamy messages or photo sent in a hustle ended up with the boss, colleague, friend oran ex-beauby mistake. The survey of 3,000 adults for dot mobile found that six out of 10 admitted to "text cheating" but claimed it was just "harmless fun". But for a fifth, the flirting grew into a full affair.

In a worst case scenario, texts to a secret flame could end up in a current loverpartner's inbox.
