If you're in a relationship, consider yourself warned about today. It is Red Tuesday

Red Tuesday, according to experts, marks the most common day of the year for a breakup., according to a survey from Illicit Encounters. The "holiday" falls about a week before Valentine's Day. Red Tuesday falls on February 6 this year. So that's... today!

The survey found that the breakups are a combination of fear, pity and guilt. People stay in relationships because they are "comfortable," but the pressure of the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday can change that. 

Let's be honest: if you aren't feeling it with that person anymore or you know it's just not going to work out, why spend all the money on Valentine's Day dinner, flowers, etc? It seems pointless, right?

After all, being single on Valentine's Day isn't the worst thing in the world, right? There are plenty of ways to enjoy the holiday if you're single.
