break up year???

remember last year i kept saying how SOOO many ppl are hooking up? last year ppl who havent been in a relationship in a while were finding someone... esp. during the last half of the year, which was way cool. i'm not complaining. i was one of them.

this year i'm finding out a lot of break ups are happening.... and it's only the beginning of march... i'm having ppl tell me that they broke up with their SO whom they been with for YEARS. i'm talking years as in 5+ not like 2 years.

basically:

2005
- ppl who arent in relationship for a while, hook up
- friends in closer circle are the ones hooking up
- happened near the end of the year

2006
- ppl who have been in relationship for a long time, break up
- friends in further circle are the ones breaking up
- happened near the beginning of the year

i know life is on some kind of continuum/balance. but wow ok. this is like two extremes.
i just hope it doesnt come too close *knock on wood*

I noticed that a lot of my friends' (long-time relationship) break ups occurred when they were 23-24.

what about the ones who haven't dated each other that long yet during that age? are they married/engaged now? or did they also break up?

Well, let's see.. Some are still dating around or single. They haven't gotten into a serious relationship since the break up (2-3 years now). One got back with her ex, and another is in a new relationship. He said he'll propose soon. Seems like most of them haven't had another relationship since the break up though.

no no i'm speakign of the ones that havent dated each other for a long time. you said a lot of your friends who dated for a logn time broke up around my age.

i was wondering other friends around my age who dated their SO for a short time, did they break up also?

Hmm.. most of my friends were in long-term relationships. They were either in long-term relationships or single. Not many had recently gotten together with someone. Oh wait.. there was one, and yes, they broke up shortly, too. I think they lasted 6-8 months. It was a pretty rough relationship. Lots of ups and downs.
