If you plan on breaking up with someone anytime soon, it will cost you some good friends and of course all the time you put into the relationship.  According to the folks at HealBee.com, the average person loses (8) friends in a break up.  That's not including the person you break-up with because we all know that "lets stay friends" thing never works.

The average person loses three of their ex's friends, three mutual friends and two friends they knew before the relationship.  The people behind this latest poll said the results were consistent across gender, age and geography.  I think you see similar results when you resign or quit a job.  In some cases no matter how hard you try, you will lose the friends you made at the office and for some reason they will always feel like they have to chose sides.

Bottom line, you lose much more in a break up than you might realize!
