If you're in a relationship, consider yourself warned about next Red Tuesday.
Red Tuesday, according to experts, marks the most common day of the year for a breakup., according to a survey from Illicit Encounters. The "holiday" falls about a week before Valentine's Day. So this year Red Tuesday falls on February 6.
The survey found that the breakups are a combination of fear, pity and guilt. Apparently, someone in a relationship who is there becuase it's "comfortable" is able to use the pressure of Valentine's Day to overcome it.
Let's be honest: if you aren't feeling it with that person anymore or you know it's just not going to work out, why spend all the money on Valentine's Day dinner, flowers, etc? It seems pointless to me.
Plus, let's be honest: being single on Valentine's Day isn't the worst thing in the world, right?
