NEW YORK - The date Nov. 11th (11.11), is considered to be lucky, and Dec. 12th (12.11) is considered to be unlucky, especially for lovers.
According to the website Information Is Beautiful, peak break-up times happen right before the end of the year.
The website found that the most popular day for breakups is December 11th.
"It's a good time to be single because you go to a holiday party—you could meet so many people," says relationship expert and the co-founder of Project Soulmate, Lori Zaslow.
"There's so much going on this time of year. It could be lonely, maybe like New Year's, but why start a year off with the wrong person?" Zaslow added.

The site also found that spring break was another popular separation season.
Zaslow warns that if you're single this holiday season to just remember: "Go to everything you are invited to… Show up. Yes to everything. No to nothing."
"There's so much going on this time of year. I mean, it could be lonely, maybe like New Year's, but why start a year off with the wrong person?" Zaslow says.
The holiday season is also an opportunity for singles to meet.
One person told FOX 5 NY, "me personally, I'm not in a relationship right now... it's the season for getting into relationships for me...people break up? I'm there to scoop them up."
