Do you feel that seasons affect our relationships?

If you are satisfied and not having any issues, it won't matter if it's Winter, Summer, Spring, or Fall. However, if things are on the rocky side, I feel that a new season coincides with a new love. As humans, we like fresh starts. Many will take the opportunity at the beginning of a season (typically Spring and Summer) to find love. The status of the relationship in general plays the major part.

I definitely believe it. Studies actually show that people become more depressed when winter turns into spring (RIGHT NOW!) and that's actually when the most breakups occur.

I do think that some people are more affected by climate and seasons than others, but I'm sure it does indirectly affect relationships

This is so true! Sometimes I feel like I have the February curse. My two serious relationships both ended in February - winter seems kind of dumpy and sad. Suddenly it's sunnier out and things don't seem as bad. That is a hyper-simplistic view of it, but sometimes I really do feel like the seasons affect relationships!
