According to research by YouGov Omnibus, 7% of Americans have ended a relationship on Valentine’s Day itself. That number skyrockets to 12% among 18-34-year-olds.

Beware of the days just before and after the holiday as well — 7% of Americans said they had ended relationships in the time leading up to Valentine’s, and 5% said the same soon after Feb. 14.

Among those who cut things short before the big day, 20% did so because they “didn’t want to have to buy a gift for or spend money on their partner,” according to YouGov. But not everyone’s selfish: “21% didn’t want their partner to buy them a gift or spend money on them,” the research found.
