Peak Breakup Times

Peak Breakup Times

Want to know when your girlfriend is more likely to break it off? This timeline compiled from Facebook status updates shows the peak breakup days are Mondays but Christmas is too cruel to dump someone on. Valentine’s Day starts the run-up into a peak of “spring cleaning” around spring break (no surprise). Also popular is the Turkey Day drop, where college students come home and re-asses their local significant other.
