Over the last decade, we've seen a lot of supposedly lucky, triple dates (7/7/07 was a big one) and today, December 12, 2012, is another. I'm not generally one for lucky numbers, but a lot of good things do seem to come in sets of twelve: a dozen roses, the Days of Christmas, , etc. (Ha!)

I did some brief research on the significance of the number 12 and today's date and meet local women put together this list of, duh, twelve reasons why today just might be a really good day for romance.

  1. If something special happens today, it will always be super easy to remember the exact date.
  2. For that and other reasons, there will be a , so love will seriously be everywhere you turn. Majorly good karma.
  3. According to one of the Vegas wedding chapels people are flocking to today, : " 'The 'go-getting' 1 and the 'sensitive' 2 make this a very balanced number. 1 is the vibration of 'new beginnings' and starting things afresh. The 2 vibration is about seeking 'balance' and that's certainly something that many will struggle with - balancing the bank balance, balancing the food and beverage intake, balancing the emotions … balancing in every way."
  4. It's the last chance in a lifetime! The world won’t see another triple date until January 1, 2101. So why not embrace the spirit and take a chance you might not get again? For example, ask out that cute barista or tell your longtime friend that you have feelings for him.
  5. : In Chinese numerology, one is a yang number, ruled by the sun and symbolizing independence and individualism. Two is a yin number ruled by the moon and represents symmetry and balance. Together in the number 12: harmony.
  6. Take a cue from , who says the number 12 is like the reset on the clock, and therefore a fresh start on her love life.
  7. There's a combination of the masculine and feminine: , "In Western numerology, numbers are associated with certain personality traits: The masculine one is self-sufficient and driven, while the feminine two is a true partner. Together they form a balanced and unstoppable pair."
  8. . In numerology, twelve is the number of completeness. With December as the twelfth and final month of the year, and night or day beginning every twelve hours, it represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another.
  9. . For the math nerds, twelve is a sublime number, "a number that has a perfect number of divisors, and the sum of its divisors is also a perfect number." Hopefully the sublime will transfer over into your love life, but the math of twelve also reminds us not to expect perfection. "Since there is a subset of 12's proper divisors that add up to 12 (all of them but with 4 excluded), 12 is a semiperfect number." No one has the perfect relationship, but I'd take a semiperfect one on 12/12/12.
  10. : Twelve is associated with the heavens (12 months, 12 zodiac signs, 12 stations of the moon and the sun). It's the product of the sacred and the secular (3 X 4). It's widely used in the Bible (the number of apostles, the Tribes of Israel, etc.).
  11. In general, , since it is believed that good luck comes in pairs. So with 12/12/12 is a like a triple dose of good luck! (Although, does the even number repeated an odd amoiunt of times negate the good luck? My head hurts now.)
  12. Not buying it? Did you get dumped today or have some other stroke of bad fortune in romance? LUCKILY, doughnuts are also sold by the dozen.

Do you believe in lucky numbers? What's yours? Anybody doing anything special for 12/12/12?
