The Worst Way to End a Relationship

What's the Worst Way You've Ended a Relationship?

LeAnn Rimes started her marriage in 2002 when she was 19, and ended it seven years later when she started having an affair with Eddie Cibrian. For the first time, she's admitting that while the marriage wasn't working for her or ex Dean Sheremet, she probably could have ended it differently. She told Shape:

"I think any relationship is hard to get out of, and I don't think the way I did it was right."

Cheating is an extreme way to free yourself from an undesirable relationship, but it's quite common to end them without kindness. Maybe you broke up with someone via email or text, started withdrawing so he would break up with you, or had someone else deliver the news. So tell me, what's the worst way you broke up with someone?

Filed for divorce from my kids Dad EX Husband, and he was served at the house, while we were still home. That was ackward, but not extremely cruel; And when he knew I seriously wanted out he got kind of scary crazy. That was a bad year. I met someone before I was divorced and told them I couldn't see them till I was divorced, because I thought he might try to kill us, long story short, he absolutely did want to hurt us when he found out there was someone else, My Doctor said wait it out, I took too many bullets out of people as a  resident, so you never know.  I listened to him and wil always be grateful.

I broke up with my least BF via e-mail while he was in Iraq. In my defense, I had just been informed that he was married with 2 daughters so it was a good time to end things.

With a number of my ex-boyfriends, I tried to be "nice" while breaking up with them and sort of implied that we could possibly get back together at some point in the future -- even though I had no desire to be with them. This backfired when a few of them actually started calling a few months later expecting us to get back together! At the time it seemed kinder to blame the break-up on something other than the lack of attraction I was feeling, but in retrospect it just gave them false hopes.

It didn't seem as bad at the time, but now I realize how cruel I was. My ex and I dated for 2 1/2 years or so. Although it had always been tumultuous, the last year had been particularly rough. One afternoon, we were sitting on our couch, and he was telling me some random story. I just remember looking at him, and realizing, "oh my god, I don't love you anymore and I couldn't care less about what you're saying." I ended it right there on the couch. I just suddenly couldn't bare another minute with him. It seems terrible, I knew that waiting even one more day would be a lie. It was so surreal , we'd had a thousand screaming arguments, and the moment I realized I finally had to do it, was a quiet conversation on the couch. He was pissed, obviously, but he knew it was the best thing too. In the long run, we've both ended up much better off.

A text message sent to my lover asking about lunch, returned a message saying "Are you the other woman?". Turns out he was married in another state and his wife had moved to be with him. I sent her a text saying "You can have him".

E-mail. My ex did deserve more than just an e-mail and blowing him off when he wanted to have one of those 'closure' talks.
