Break Ups Increase At End Of The Year
Thanks to a little speculation and NOT a lot of hard science... TODAY is possibly the biggest day of the year to get dumped.
If you get a dear john via e-mail, you've been warned!
According to David McCandless Research on the site: InformationisBeautiful.net Lee Byron and David McCandless created a graph from data mined from Facebook titled 'Peak Break Up Times on Facebook'.
Note the large increase in break ups towards the end of the year. Now look very closely at the mini peaks that land on each Monday.
If you think hard about it, a couple weeks before Christmas is a likely time for a breakup. Maybe you don't want to take the guy home to visit your folks after all? Or if the relationship is only so so, why would he want to buy her an expensive gift?
This all comes down to today Monday, December 13th, being the mostly likely time to get dumped all year!
And I quote David McCandless:
"Christmas too cruel. Hahah! Still makes me chuckle."
