How to treat a cheating husband, how to find true love and how to convince a girl to love you. These are some Valentine’s Day trends and questions Kenyans are currently asking Google as the ultimate day of love nears.

The search engine says that individuals have asked “all sorts of questions” about the day and provides a round-up of the top searches.

"Search is a useful tool that helps people explore and discover a world of information. Even when it comes to love, people trust Google Search to help them with answers to their biggest questions," said Sharon Machira, Google’s Communications and Public Affairs Manager in Kenya.

The Google Search Trends data for the past year reveals that Kenyans searched for red roses to celebrate their loved ones. They also looked for Valentine recipes to spice up their Valentine’s Day celebrations.
