What Is the Lamest Way Someone Broke Up With You?

It sucks when someone breaks up with you, but the mode in which they do it can ease the blow and at least show you that person cared — or wasn't a total chode who wasted your time.

Alas, some people are too chicken to do it in a respectful manner, so they slip out the back, Jack, make a new plan, Stan . . . by texting, emailing, or just up and disappearing. Gorgeous Isabella Rossellini recounted once the way eccentric filmmaker David Lynch broke up with her — by calling her and saying, after years together, "I don't love you anymore." Whoa!

What's the lamest way someone broke up with you?

Hmm.... After 3yrs together, and almost 2yrs being engaged, I got an email at work..... lets just say the rest of my day was utterly pointless.... After 3 yrs and being engaged he didn't have the courage to break it all off in person. Maybe I'm better off alone....

He said he'd call me, he didn't and I was upset, thinking he'd had an accident or something had happened to him. Then I saw a message on msn where he'd written "I need time because i'm in love with another girl." Two weeks after that he wanted to get back together. (WTF?) Lol. Thank god I got over him.

lamest way... walking into his place and finding him talking on the phone to someone saying "love you babe". I asked him who it was, and he said it was his wife. Apparently she never turned in the divorce papers and called to work it out! Oh, and the kicker was that he asked if I still wanted to spend the night at his place. UM NO!

breakups are lame ! doesn't matter how it never fails to get hurt in the end. and the worst part is you cant be nice about breaking up, there is just nothing to be nice about.

My ex came over the day after my father died, held me in his arms to comfort me, then left me a note stating that he could not handle an emotional girlfriend at this time in his life. When I went back to school, I saw him with another girl kissing, so since I was a little wild in high school, I went up to him, pushed the girl out of the way and broke his nose.

for me, not talking to me for almost a month and then a week after i find out he cheated on me he calls to say he thinks we should break up... that one was a genius a friend from high school had her guy break up with her by saying "hey, do you want to go to winter formal... as friends?"

My lamest breakup happened this year! The distance was a simple 20-minute drive. He tells me in person that it was "too long-distance" and he wanted a relationship where he can walk to see someone. In comparison, my next boyfriend (now fiance) drove 6 hours one-way to see me, every other weekend.

Wow, Pep85!-- I'd say you are def better off! What a Dr. Jekyl Mr. Hyde. That one was NOT a keeper! I'd say the worst I can remember was a "rumor" through his family who were my neighbors, but then rec'd an email that he was pursuing someone else that he worked with. It was at the very beginning, so it didn't hurt so bad, just felt like an emotional roller coaster because of the excitement of meeting someone new. Months later he wrote a handwritten note apologizing & acting like he wanted to rekindle things. I brushed it off.

Wow this is a very timely post. I was just dumped 2 days ago via text. I texted him to confirm that we were still on for a date that evening. He texted me back saying, "No, I'm kicking it with another girl, you are too boring. Peace" I called him to ask if he was serious, and he said yes, so I told him to not call me if it didn't work out with her. He said, "I wasn't planning on it." We had only been dating for like 4 weeks so I'm not going to waste time being upset about it. The weird thing is 2 days earlier he had been practically begging to see me. He pulled such a bizarre 180 on me that I'm convinced I dodged a bullet on this one. He probably is on drugs or has some sort of personality disorder.

This guy wanted to break up but he did it by flirting heavily with a girl and having his friend tell me about the flirting. So lame.

I once dumped guy via e-mail. But he was just into me for sex, and I really wasn't up for that at the time.
Ooooooohhhhhh BOY! My boyfriend of almost a year just disappeared three weeks after he came to visit. (Long distance relationship. Bad.) This was the second time I'd seen him in person, and the second time he'd disappeared (The first time, he was "in hospital" and "Very, very sick".) He came back after a month, but that's beside the point. It's never been official that we've broken up, since, well, I haven't seen him since... Valentine's day, ironically. We'd been texting each other since his Internet was dead, and then I texted him asking him if he'd call me, since I was almost out of credit. (I was actually buying him presents while I sent that text) about five hours later, I got a text back saying "na i dont like u" and then the number went out of service. Hurt even more since he always used PERFECT grammar, even in texts. But, hey, I'm better off now. He was an asshole, not dependable at all, and the whole time we were together I felt like shit and cried every night. Thank fuck he's gone. Some of the other breakups are WAY worse, though.

I dated a guy who decided he was really a "woman" inside and wanted the surgery. He also wanted to remain friends, but when he started taking the hormone replacement therapy, he became very different from who he was when we met, and I just wasn't into that person at all, not as a friend or anything.
