Feburary 7th is "Red Tuesday." That's the day of the year you're most likely to get dumped, because it's exactly one week from Valentine's Day.

 

If you want to break things off without seeming totally heartless about it, apparently this is the cut-off.

 

A UK website found 30% of people have broken up with someone a week before Valentine's Day.  

 

80% said the main reason they did it was so they wouldn't feel guilty faking their way through Valentine's Day next week.

 

55% said they broke up with the person face-to-face, 28% did it over the phone,12% did it over text, and 5% did it on social media.
