When are you most likely to get dumped? Statisticians say it's just one week before Christmas.

Breakup Time: This Is The Day You’re Most Likely To Get Dumped

While it’s not easy to predict life and put everything into statistics, the findings of Facebook statisticians have established the one day of the year when you should probably lock yourself in a room and avoid all contact with your partner, as it’s the day you’re most likely to get dumped.

Relax, You’ve Still Got Loads Of Time Before You Get Dumped

Lucky for you, this year’s Breakup Day is still far ahead. The actual date to fear is the 11th of December, just two weeks before Christmas. Here are some of the most probable reasons why people decide to “have the talk” on this day.

The Reasons You Might Get Dumped On The 11th Of December

First of all, the run-up to Christmas can be a heavily emotional time. We all think about spending time with the people we love and when there’s something that we feel may be off about our partner, we are more likely to end things more spontaneously.

Then, there are practical issues to consider, like the large amounts of money we spend during the holidays. A person who’s unsure that their partner is worth keeping might be tempted to finish things and save the money spent on gifts, Christmas markets and nights out.

A third reason why a person might get dumped just 2 weeks before Christmas is that, well, who would break up with someone at actual Christmas? Strange as it may sound, it actually makes sense if you think about it. If you’re ready to drop the “b” word, you aren’t going to be a monster and do it at Christmas, are you?

Finally, one of the most serious breakup reasons on this date is the unwillingness to introduce a partner to our family. If there is one time of the year that’s full of family gatherings and large family dinners, that’s Christmas. When you’re unsure about keeping your partner, though, this is also a stressful time because you will have to decide whether you want to do it or not. In the latter case, you’re most likely to end the relationship too.

Thankfully, we’ve still got 8 months to go, so if you made it through this Christmas unscathed, you are one of the lucky ones. Enjoy your time, but also be aware of the date you’re most likely to get dumped.
