This time of the year has to be the worst time to diet. Maybe you’re like me, I haven’t been to the gym in a few days, and all I can do is eat a bunch of junk food, as I prepare my stomach for the feasts of all feasts. But if your significant other is trying to diet, maybe you should be on the lookout.

According to a new study, many people who are dieting while they're in a relationship are actually preparing to break up with their partner. Researchers confirmed that happy couples don't worry about their expanding waistlines because there is less pressure to look attractive.

But, when you are on the lookout for a new partner, you try to be as thin and attractive as possible.

Do you think this survey has much truth? Personally I don’t. I’m happy with my relationship, and I don’t think being on a diet means anything different.
