Frustrating Excuses: Readers Share The Most Ridiculous Excuses People Have Used To Break Up With Them 

Sometimes, people break up for reasons that may seem trivial or even ridiculous. Sometimes people are so wrapped up in themselves that they have a hard time seeing how absolutely insufferable they are. These insufferable people tend to be the worst at breaking up with others simply because they lack the tact and common sense that it takes to understand even basic emotions.

A Redditor commented, “He stood me up for a movie and literally hid from me for three weeks. Later, he said that I was intimidating and he was afraid to disappoint me. Long story short: My ex was scared of me.”

This poster added, “I was stood up for the symphony- on Christmas. He told me his “grandpa fell out of a window, broke his arm, leg, and might get kicked out of his old folk’s home.”  It happened 2 minutes prior to him picking me up…He still insists that’s the truth- but ran into his father and asked how his Father-in-law was, and he didn’t have a clue as to what I was talking about. When I confronted said ex, he then confessed that he felt like he was not good enough and might disappoint me.”
