Which Season Is Worst for Break-Ups? (Facebook Says It's Summer)

Summer lovin' ... may not be all it's cracked up to be. According to Facebook, summer is the peak season of the year for dumping your significant other... or getting the boot yourself. In fact, while spring is peak season for romance, June is the most deadly month of the year for dumping/getting dumped (be especially on guard on Friday and Saturday, the most common dumping days of the week).
So what's the deal? Our friends at How About We offer the following theories:
1. "One possibility is that warm weather and general cheer compel people to a) socialize more and b) appear more attractive (i.e. tans, swimsuits, everyone’s awareness that they’ll be donning tans and swimsuits), thus maximizing the chances that they meet other people and decide that the proverbial field has more to offer than their existing flings."
2. "Another theory would be that the typical relationship simply doesn’t have a shelf-life built to exceed more than three to four months, and, seeing as how February and March are two of the most relationship-friendly months, it should come as no surprise that June is when they tend to dissolve."
What do you think? Is summer the season when you are most likely to ditch your significant other? Have you ever been dumped in the summertime?
