Or how did they break up with you? Is it ever ok to dump someone via text?
then facebooked her claiming i'd walked to scotland
That's the best thing I have read in a while.
I was clever enough not to read the a4 length email she sent me but I think it was probably fairly derogatory
Not through choice though - there's only so many weeks you can go with someone refusing to take your calls or open their door, let alone meet up with you. Given things were at that stage, the text was a formality really.
Make sure you find room for a lol in your 160 chars too
I think it depends whether you've actually properly started seeing someone. Might be ok if it's just a few dates.
Literally have no experience of it though.
Still, they seem blissfully happy now so it worked out I suppose
You mean there are other ways?!
Everything since has been casual so has just fizzled out.
A guy a few years below me in uni got broken up with via Facebook, in that she changed her status to single before she rang him and he noticed.
although much easier than doing it in person. The last person I broke up with was in person, and it's horrible, but it seems like the most sensible way to do it as far as closure and all that goes.
I was made redundant and used some of my money to follow my girlfriend out to Thailand (she was travelling with a friend - it had been arranged since before we got together, then we had a whirlwind romance and couldn't bring ourselves to break it off before she left). We had spoken every few days and she was really looking forward to me joining them out there. When i arrived she broke it off after two days saying - "sorry, but when i saw you, i just didn't feel anything for you anymore". I then went to malaysia and India on my own and had a great time, but for two weeks i was a drunken shell of a man. I haven't seen her since, but i believe she has now moved to Australia. In hindsight it wasn't that bad, but at the time it felt really shitty.
And now it's a good story.
after returning from a weekend recording in Bristol. I'd met my current boyfriend two weeks prior and thought he was a bit of alright, and the relationship was pretty rocky at best. I did the whole 'we need to talk...' stuff, it was pretty horrible but once he left I felt great.
i ended it on a tuesday night and she asked to be dropped off at the train station. so i did and drove back home. was the longest and strangest night of my life. anyway, went into the flat, composed my self and then went to see my flatmate, and told him. he instantly cracked open a beer and got FIFA on the go. what a guy.
the actually breaking up was shit, but the next three weeks of her being batshit crazy wasn't. :/
Then she ran off into the night in tears.
Then turned up at my house.
We're still friends now so it's okay(ish).
Utterly fucking stupid.
i don' love you no mo.
"she jes kinda said"
but I think a well put together powerpoint presentation or well labelled visio diagram would also be sufficient
that we'd tried to make it work but it wasn't and i didn't feel the same way and didn't want to be with him anymore. asked him to move out etc. gradually phased out contact...
to break up with his girlfriend ... I can't remember what the sets were now.
Great guy,but a bit of a sociopath.
That fucking Postal Service songs has a lot to answer for.
I really didn't like her.
What about the other thread?
In regards t the other thread i typed out that I W*******D her but it looked like I was saying something else.
The word I think should go there doesn't really fit.
I wasn't very nice. But then, he couldn't understand anyway.
"Good morning sweaty" and "Good night sweety" texts though.
I was paranoid for a while that I did smell.
sort of set the tone.
I realise I am a terrible person.
saying 'Look, pal, you're fit, but i'm too much of a playa for this bullshit. ciao'.
So it wasn't a "her" at all, right?
I mean, no judgement, but let's clear that up.
She was supposed to be coming to see me and I was planning on speaking to her and ending things.
She thought something was wrong so text me saying 'I'm not coming to see you if you're just going to break up with. Are you?'. Couldn't really say 'no' and then have her come see me just to break up with her :(
Bangs chicks in bullet time, then immediately flies away to punch Hugo Weaving NeoLAD
Who decided it's wrong? Mean Girls or something?
Had been living together in stoney silence which was starting to eat me up inside. I went to ATP and snogged some girl then the next day watched Senna on the telly in my chalet, then called her and broke up with her. I had a really sad journey home and she moved out that night.
Thought that I'd follow it up with some relationship crushing
He said we had never been properly going out, even though he was the one who introduced me to his friends and family (parents, sister, grandparents) as his girlfriend, largely against my wishes. It was on my last ever day of school and the day I found out my grandmother had terminal cancer. I went back to my friends party, got spectacularly drunk and had a wonderful time with all of my school chums.
She was crying a lot and it made me feel bad so I (perhaps stupidly) said "Well, lets not talk for a couple of days and I'll clarify my feelings".
I don't know what to do now.
Because part of me does what to get back with her, but, I'm not sure whether that's just guilt.
Because it's rubbish having to do it all again once you've done it and realised it was guilt.
"please accept this breakup as a first draft, I will send through a final version of the breakup once I have collated all feedback and spoken to the relevant stakeholders"
... and I felt it came across like you put it after I posted.
As did the one before that.
And the one before that.
handed it to her on her arrival and then walked away while she shouted some stuff.
I don't have good abs. I NEED to WORK on them. I'm 'No/Poor Quality Abs' Kelly.
I think actually having to travel to her bit and then break it off is just gonna be awkward. Should i break up as soon as i get there or wait til the morning? How do you break up with someone without telling them the reason why? Shes really nice but just a bit boring.
so steven hawking breaks up with her for you
On the train back from Sheffield(!). Timed it perfectly as we were coming into Kings cross. Forgot about the tube journey.
Im a pretty nice guy and shes a pretty nice girl so it was all ok.
(Cue her slapping me next time we meet)
I cried and he didn't. Then he said "I've been expecting this actually" and looked sad.
Then I felt even more guilty because he was clearly so bloody nice that he didn't finish me to get in first/wanted THE DREAM to continue (the dream is going out with me)
They're REAL PEOPLE, saps. REAL PEOPLE.
I feel your pain.
That should be your catchphrase
then we were friends, then he went a bit bananas. I'm not good at telling people I don't want to be with them anymore so I rarely do the breaking up, or I just go kind of AWOL on them :/
Last time someone split up with me they did it on a busy bus then they got straight off :/
I said to her that I like smelling clean she should take a leaf out of my book and pointed at her arse, think I would have got away with it if I hadn't then did the Ali-G style snapping fingers and screamed Boyakashan. She bolted of crying and havent heard from her again.
In hindsight There is a chance that I smell too clean as people keep on asking me if I can smell soap when they are near me and that she just smelled normally clean, ah well. Life
People I've been *seeing* though, wow, stone cold GTFO fuck out of my life like.
Generally I just ignore them or be horrid until they get the message. Or a classic *I'm just not in the right place of mind for a relationship right now*. Two were a bit overkeen though and needed firmer treatment. One I told I'd moved to Ireland (which was a bit silly given I wasn't and then saw her all the time). The other I called to meet up to call it off face to face but she refused to meet me because *You're just going to break up with me*. Was a bit confused as to what she thought the outcome would be i.e that we'd just never see each other again and she'd pretend to still be seeing me. So I said *Didn't want to do this, but you're acting like a plum. Don't wanna see you anymore. Over. Bye.* And hung up
And I can't find it on google for a c&p
The night before she had her third & final chance to guess it. Someone overheard and grassed me up. Rookie's mistake really.
(it was my birthday, i was drunk and i was getting fed up with her pestering me to invite her out when i didn't really want to have her join us. i phoned her the next day to apologise and explain)
We broke up and got back together about a million times and then finally he broke up with me. I told him he was a terrible person and I'd never forgive him for all the horrible things he'd done to me. I was pretty harsh and we never spoke again. Sometimes still feel a bit sad/bad about it.
Last not srs boyfriend
His mother became terminally ill and he went back to Scotland to be close to her. We hadn't been seeing each other long, he wasn't planning to come back any time soon, he really wasn't in the right place for a relationship, we broke up amicably.
We were fighting (again) and suddenly something snapped inside me and I went all "You know what?? That's it! I'm sick of it! This is over!!!" and slammed the phone down. Those heat-of-the-moment outbursts can be regrettable, but my very first thought afterwards was Jesus christ, I should have done that ages ago.
Took a couple more phone calls to get her to believe that I was serious, and then a face to face meeting about a week later.
and they got really mad
That was 8 years ago...still with her best friend now and we're having our firstborn in December so all good.
sorry to say this but i think she might be having an affair.
Went round to her flat and talked it through about how we'd drifted apart. Was pretty difficult, but dumping her via text/phone would have been wrong.
