Worst Times For a Breakup

Relationships - General

Introduction:There is really not a good time for a break-up. A break-up occurring when you have strong feelings is nightmarish enough without it occurring on special days or approaching holidays.......

  • 01

    An Approaching Birthday

    A break-up during that special time of year for you could have you lying on your couch a day longer than you should. If you're one of the many people that enjoys celebrating your own birthday and having your love with you, it seems almost cruel to have a break-up at that time. You may carry on with the celebration but there is a pain there too.

  • 02

    New Years

    New Years is very significant to most people. People who care about each other, usually find their way to each other for New Years. There is something so romantic about that day. To break up during that time makes you feel very lonely.

  • 03

    Valentine's Day

    Many people put a lot of stock in Valentine's Day. It's symbolic of love so to break up with your honey during that time could only make this special day feel like a mockery to some. I think it would to me, even though I was never a great celebrator of that day. Each day can be Valentine's.

  • 04

    Significant Holidays

    Oh, Christmas, Easter, and including the major Spring and Summer holidays....can all be days that you shared with your love. To suddenly find yourself at the picnics or warm parties without him or her can be awful. I do have a key solution to this: unless you know that you are really connected or you get married, don't make it a practice to include them on holidays so meant for families and close friends. Honestly.

    Just Before a Planned Trip

    This type of break-up is not only horrible timing, but it takes work to undo plans that you both have made to be together one on one. Everyone knows about the trip, plans have to re-arranged or worst, you may lose money too.

    Breaking up is inevitable sometimes but at least if you try and think about the person's feelings, it can be easier.

    You know people, I forgot the obvious. To break up during an engagement. But I guess that's because it's termed "breaking an engagement". I had that experience once and the choice was all for the good.

    I guess I've been lucky in that my breakups were at decent times and we were both ready to be OUT. Never really had a bad one but, once they're gone? Man, they're gone!

    Yes, these are a good collection of the worst times for a breakup.

    Cruel and unusual punishment. Anyone with class could wait one more day. Excellent topic.
