15 Horrible Ways To Break Up With Your Partner

When it comes to breaking up with someone, there is no good way to do it. When breaking up with someone, it’s important to be respectful and to explain why you’re breaking up. That said, there are instances where there are bad ways to break up with someone. A few of the worst ways to break up with someone is by resorting to cruel and hurtful behavior by deliberately causing emotional harm, insulting, or demeaning the other person. Also, engaging in heated arguments or public humiliation not only destroys the relationship but also tarnishes the dignity and self-worth of the person being dumped. Another way is by manipulating the situation to make the other person feel guilty or at fault adds unnecessary pain to an already difficult situation.

A top-liked comment said, “At a party, there was a game in which all the single people were supposed to line up for something, and couples the other side. A friend’s boyfriend went in the single line. His girlfriend said, “What the F****ck?” And then he said, “I’m single, so are you now. Very public and very hurtful. Thought he was a jerk for that. Then he showed me pictures he’d been sent of her the night before with some dude.”

One user recalled, “I was “ghosted.” I was with a guy for a year, and one day, he stopped replying to my texts and calls. I thought he was dead. I didn’t want to be that “crazy” girlfriend and drive by his house but I felt so confused. He reached out to me 8 months later, saying ‘hey, what’s up?”

A poster commented, “My ex-fiance was supposed to escort me to my friend’s wedding, for which I was the Maid Of Honor. He and I had a wedding date set. I had a 1/2 ct round diamond and a dress chosen. We rented a house off campus at college and were seniors. That Friday before the wedding, he suddenly came down with the flu. He couldn’t travel. I believed him, and he acted loving and apologetic, etc. I went ahead and took the 3-hour trip. When I returned Sunday and walked into the house, everything, including furniture, was gone. My clothes and books were still there, but everything else was GONE.”

This commenter recalled, “A woman broke up with me by changing her Facebook status to single. In her defense, we had a fight over the phone that morning, but I didn’t think it was quite such a big deal. The nice thing about finding out that way was that I didn’t have to deal with the sort of person who breaks up with me by changing their Facebook status anymore.”

Then, the day before I graduated college, she dumped me.”
