CNN reports that a new study out of the University of Texas found that someone’s social media posts can predict their breakup three months before it happens.

They studied posts on Reddit’s “BreakUps” subreddit . . . which, before you ask, does not contain any hot stock tips. They found the users on there who posted about breakups, and they analyzed all of their past posts on the site.

And they found that around three months before someone’s relationship ends, there’s a noticeable change in the language they use, whether they’re talking about their relationship or something else.

People start using more self-focused words, like “I,” “me,” and “mine” … and they start thinking about things less analytically and more emotionally.

The researchers say this shows, quote, “there are signs you’ve already started to disengage from your partner weeks ahead of time . . . [so] if you notice you’re using more self-focused words, it might be a sign you’ve already made up your mind.”
