Valentine's Day: So Close and Yet So Far
It seems that Valentine's Day is more of a cruel mistress than we ever thought possible. While it is certainly a time for those that are single to ponder what could have been with that special someone, it is apparently also a time when countless singles can count themselves in the category of recently dumped.
According to this press release from Yahoo! Personals, the period between New Year's Day and Valentine's Day is home to twice the number of break-ups than during any other part of the year. It seems that the holidays can act as crazy glue for relationships already on the rocks but after the ball drops, all bets are off.
Various reasons were pointed to but the prevailing sentiment of the article is that people take stock of all aspects of their lives during the New Year's period and love is one of the areas people concentrate on most. Can you envision another full year with your partner? Well, it turns out that the answer to that question is a resounding no for some singles.
The reasons varied with younger singles tending to feel in a rut and older couples tending to have different views on the future, but no matter what the age, it seems that before either half of a couple even thinks about dropping some time and money on a Valentine's Day blowout, most of them don't even get that far as a resolution to find a better mate takes hold.
While that is naturally a shame for those in long-term relationships that bust up right around Valentine's Day season, there is certainly a silver lining. Lots of busted relationships mean lots of eligible singles out on the market that perhaps weren't before. According to the survey, one of the more popular ways to get over breakups is to go online to meet new dating partners. And that certainly can't hurt your chances of fulfilling your New Year's resolution of meeting new singles to date.
