Will You Survive Red Tuesday? More Couples Split in the Week of Valentine’s Day Than Any Other – And the Top Day to Get Dumped Is Tomorrow by H. Richardson
According to a recent survey, the most popular way to end a relationship is by text, followed by a phone call and a chat face-to-face
MANY couples will be looking forward to celebrating the most romantic night of the year later this week.
That’s if they manage to get through tomorrow, which has been dubbed Red Tuesday due to it being the top day of the year to get dumped.
According to a recent survey, more couples split up in the week of Valentine’s Day than any other during the year.
Shockingly, the peak day for dumping is just 48 hours before February 14.
More than a third of people surveyed (37 per cent) said they had broken up with a lover in the week before Valentine’s.
The research by IllicitEncounters.com, a dating site for married people, revealed the most popular way to end a relationship is by text, followed by a phone call and a chat face-to-face.
Naturally one of the reasons people chose to call it quits prior to Valentine’s Day is to save money on buying a gift and avoid the pressure of making false declarations of love.
Of all the people asked, 31 per cent admitted dumping their lover via text, followed by 28 per cent who did it over the phone and 27 per cent who did the decent thing and delivered the news in person.
Meanwhile eight per cent admitting doing it over Facebook and four per cent ditched their other half via Whatsapp.
Two per cent owned up to dumping their partner over Twitter. Shame on you!
