The weeks before the festive are a bad time for relationships. To those single ladies and gents out there, the market is about to get a lot meatier.
As soon as spring hits, you can always feel the change in the air, the meat is forever roasting, drinks forever flowing and the thighs forever glowing!!!
So how does this affect relationships you may ask? Well, there’s a lot of made up theories, case studies and myths when it comes to the reality of relationships during spring, but one thing I can say is in winter, its all about partnering up and cuddling up with your bae. But in the summer, its about heat and sex and flings, and the spring reminds you that its time to “liberate” yourself, and this parties don’t help because there’s a lot of them in spring, it’s also quite easy for your partner to see that things have changed in the relationship because you have been cuddling for the past 5 months almost every weekend, but now because it’s spring, you’re nowhere to be found on Saturdays or Sundays
And if you think things will get better, you’re just fooling yourself…things will only get worse the more we get nearer to December, phela now there’s more parties, more alcohol, more meat and more glowing thighs in the streets. I also think it also has to do with age and the relationship itself, because if the relationship is still new, the spring/summertime will be a good test for the relationship cause 58% of new relationships don’t make it past their first spring/summertime
But Why Do Couples Break Up Right Before The Festive?
I think it has something to do with end-of-the-year reflections or thoughts of everyone heading home for the holidays, Perhaps some people realize their significant other is not someone they would want to introduce to their families.
I can only reflect on my own experience — would you want stay in a relationship that you felt was over through Christmas and New Year’s? You don’t want to be dogged by worries or pressure, you don’t want to be worrying about the potential ups and downs in your relationship, you just want to clear the space. This is the season, The reason this happens is that we have the media myth that this is supposed to be a happy, wonderful and joyous time.
Couples or people who are dating are in a bind, It’s kind of a flight or another step to commitment time. The same thing holds true for Valentine’s Day. These are symbolic times where you’re making a statement, and if you’re not sure, particularly if you haven’t been dating for several years, a lot of people have issues about gift giving and how intimate the gift giving is and they get frightened because they don’t want to put pressure on the other person, but on the other hand they don’t want to feel like a fool giving something and not getting anything back.
In closing, If you’re already unhappy and thinking about pulling the trigger on a relationship, spring is the right time to do it, go ahead and free yourself!!!
Sometimes the best improvement you can make is setting free the good-for-nothing mate.
