I have not done an official study; or even an informal poll, but from observations over the years I have concluded that the Christmas season is not too good to some relationships. I sum it up to just two weeks or more before Christmas, many persons call quit on their relationships. From personal informal analysis, persons break –up during this time for these top three (3) reasons.
3) Does he/she Worth This Expensive gift?
This is a season of giving and receiving gifts. You find your self shopping for your significant other’s Christmas gift; you’re examining the quality after considering that he/she will love this item! Then BOOM! You see the price and suddenly you’re wondering if the relationship is worth this much money.
Sounds shallow? Hear me out. Wouldn’t this be a good time to think about the quality of your relationship, before spending big money on someone who won’t be around for much longer?
So; coming in at number 3, is breaking up because you realize your significant other is not worthy of all this spending on gifts.
2). Is This Person Qualified Enough to Meet the Parents?
It’s also the seasons for traveling to visit family members you have not seen since last Christmas. The family misses you. While you’re making plans for this trip, you start to wonder if your significant other is qualified enough to meet the parents and extended family.
After careful examination of where the relationship is and where it is coming from; your eyes finally open to the fact that the person you are with, is not someone you want your family to meet. There you have my number 2 reason for breakup.
1) New Year, New Beginnings
New Year resolutions are upon us. Reflections on the quality of our lives are not new to us. Making new plans for the New Year to improve our lives is on its way full speed. You come to the thoughts on your relationship. The idea of having this boyfriend/girlfriend holding you back from experiencing bigger and better things, because your relationship for a very long time has become dead weight.
This is my number 1 reason why break-ups happen during this festive season. The New Year usually means new beginnings, a fresh start to make your life happier. Naturally if your relationship is broken, this is the season your eyes become open to recognizing your relationship it not working.
Hey, I am aware that this time of year can be a very happy time for some relationships too! People are getting engaged, festivities make you happy and you spend more time with each other over the holidays etc. But, I won’t overlook that the singles market will get bigger this Christmas festive season.
