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?

    My fiance and I separated once before we were engaged, and that was in the fall. It was the start of college and everything was new...It was terrible. Leaves were turning brown and everything just seemed to get more and more depressing...

    Noone wants to spend Winter and the holidays alone. Well, I wouldn't want to anyway. Summer is the best time to be single and get over someone!

    Exactly. Summer is a good time to find someone new.

    It's also fairly easy just before the holidays and/or valentines day because nobody wants to be single then. The downside, you wind up in makeshift relationships you wouldn't normally accept.

    The holidays must be a rough time to get kicked to the curb.
  • Rubyking 2012/04/03 22:48:02
    it's the best season to dump a chick
  • JoshuaHarper 2012/04/03 22:46:53
    I think it's winter 'cause that's when people are more likely to be depressed, so when a couple breaks up, they will be even more depressed and then one or the other might try killing themselves
  • Bibliophilic 2012/04/03 22:41:59
    A breakup around New Years, Christmas or Valentines Day- Uh oh. Well, it's a good break up if the relationship isn't working out- it's a bad break up if one partner is cheating scum.

    I feel like it's usually at the start of a new school year for me, so fall or winter.
