Today is “Red Tuesday” . . . 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.
The cheating website IllicitEncounters.com did a survey, and found 30% of people have broken up with someone a week before Valentine’s Day. They polled their MEMBERS though . . . so the number might be lower for non-cheaters.
80% said the main reason they did it was so they wouldn’t feel guilty FAKING their way through Valentine’s Day next week.
And 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.
A 35-year-old woman named Zoe Jackson from North Yorkshire, England met 46-year-old Gerard Brogan last January on the dating website PlentyOfFish.com.
And they dated for about three months. But Gerard says Zoe started getting too intense. And then she dropped a bomb . . . she had SIX children. So he told her he wasn’t ready to commit, and dumped her.
So how do you get REVENGE when a relationship from PlentyOfFish.com goes south? Zoe snuck into his backyard, and filled his hot tub with . . . plenty of fish. Dead fish.
He didn’t find them until he got home from a trip two days later, and they’d been cooking in the hot water that entire time. So obviously his hot tub was ruined.
Zoe was in court this week and pleaded guilty to criminal damage. She got probation and was ordered to pay Gerard $750.
We found a funny list online, where people gave the most ridiculous reasons they’d heard for someone getting dumped. Here are the best ones.
- A woman dumped a guy because he used too many hashtags on Instagram.
- A guy dumped a girl because her jaw clicked when they made out.
- A woman broke up with a guy after she saw his childhood photos, and thought he looked weird when he was 12.
- A guy stopped dating a woman after he saw her eating peas one at a time.
- A guy bragged about going to the gym a lot, but couldn’t lift his girlfriend up, so she broke up with him.
- A guy dumped a girl after his dad reminded him that all women POOP. (???)
- A guy found out his girlfriend’s glasses didn’t have a prescription in them.
- It was right before Valentine’s Day, and the guy didn’t want to go through the trouble of buying something.
- The girlfriend’s dad was terminally ill, and the guy didn’t want to feel obligated to go to his FUNERAL.
- And finally, quote, “His name didn’t match his face.”
A new survey found you’re more likely to get dumped TODAY than any other day of the year. 22% of people have dumped someone on February 10th . . . exactly four days before Valentine’s Day.
Here’s some advanced warning: If your boyfriend or girlfriend calls you today and says "We need to talk" . . . hang up the phone and start running.
A new survey found you’re more likely to get dumped TODAY than any other day of the year.
22% of people say they’ve dumped someone on February 10th . . . exactly four days before Valentine’s Day. Mainly because they didn’t want to spend Valentine’s Day pretending things were okay.
But if you DO get dumped today . . . maybe it’s a blessing. Another survey found that 4% of people say they’d hold off on dumping someone until right AFTER Valentine’s Day . . . because they still want a gift and a nice dinner.
And while we’re talking about Valentine’s Day downers . . . one in 12 married men will buy a Valentine’s Day gift for a woman OTHER than their wife this year.

This is pretty weird, but if your name happens to be Elizabeth Gallagher, you have a ton of free time over the holidays, and you have a high tolerance for weirdos, it’s your lucky day.
A guy named Jordan from Toronto, Canada recently got dumped by his girlfriend . . . Elizabeth Gallagher. And they had an amazing around-the-world trip booked for the end of the year to Milan, Prague, Paris, Bangkok, and New Delhi.
Well . . . Elizabeth isn’t going on the trip with Jordan anymore. But he already paid for the ticket, it would cost him too much to cancel it, and he can’t change the name on it.
So he’s put an offer out on the Internet: If your name is Elizabeth Gallagher, you can go on the around-the-world trip for FREE. He says it doesn’t include hotels and you don’t even have to hang out with him in the different cities.
He also says he’s not expecting anything in return . . . but, quote, “if you feel compelled to toss me a couple hundred bucks, great. Really the only thing I ask for is that you enjoy this trip and that it brings you happiness.”
So if your name is Elizabeth Gallagher, email Jordan at email@example.com. The trip starts on December 21st from New York and ends January 8th in Toronto. Jordan thinks you might need a Canadian passport but we think you’ll be fine with a U.S. one.
