Not only is today Fat Tuesday but it's also Red Tuesday.

It's the Tuesday before Valentine's Day and today you're more likely to get dumped by your significant other, than any other day this year. According to Female First, 27% of people have broken up with someone the week before Valentine's Day.

A spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said:

"You're on the cusp of what is generally considered to be one of the most romantic and important days for any relationship, and then you realise that you don't love your partner as much as they love you..."

So what do you do? You dump them.

You know what makes it worse? Most people would rather end their relationship through a text message (26%)! Followed by in person (24%) and then over the phone (22%).

Hopefully your relationship is strong enough to survive Red Tuesday.
