Tyler, TX — The number of break-ups rises on Valentine's Day.
Experts say, there are too many broken hearts, and why does it become so chaotic on this social holiday.
KETK speaks to the relationship experts about Valentine's Blues.
While many are having butterflies and looking forward to the special day, some have are having major anxiety.
Therapist, Wade French tells KETK, "Valentine's day is a time that signals something about relationships and it brings some stress on them," says Dr. Wade French, Professional Licensed Therapist.
A recent survey found, more than fifty percent of people said they would break up with their significant other around valentine's day.
Delos Pinzino, relationship expert tells KETK, "That's when we start scratching our head going.. I don't know do I really want to be in this relationship, why am I in this relationship.
"They realize the day is coming up where they're suppose to say how much they love this person or care about them but they really may not have that feeling," says Dr. Wade French, Professional Licensed Therapist.
French tells KETK, it's a social holiday that carries certain expectations, and when those expectations aren't met that's when the stress comes.
But why break a heart before or on Valentine's Day?
"They don't want to spend the day having to act like they care about somebody at a level they really don't," says Dr. Wade French, Professional Licensed Therapist.
Experts say, expectations is the number one reason why love fails around this day because many are expecting it to be perfect.
"We believe it should be and trying to live out that perfect valentine's day and of course and of course nothing is perfect," Delos Pinzino, Psychotherapist.
