Have you guys heard of IDUMP4U.com? Basically it is a paid (usually $10) service, where this guy Bradley calls your boyfriend/girlfriend to break up with them for you. He also records most of the calls and posts them on youtube
Do you guys agree with this? Would you ever use it?
For me I kind of think it is a good idea. In some cases, the person they are breaking up with is violent and they would probably be in danger if they broke up with them face to face. For others it might be the fact that they are so angry with the boyfriend/girlfriend that they can't even face them anymore and just want them out of their life forever (one girl slept with her boyfriends father...at his brothers wedding. I mean really!) Some others I don't quite agree with, especially because the fact that Bradley (the guy who breaks up with them) can be quite rude and accusing.
Anyway, I wanna know your thoughts on this!!

If he calls to break it off with people that are violent wouldn't that make them even more angry?If it was a violent situation a person should get help from the Police I would think for there safety
.If its someone just dumping someone to be cruel I think its heartbreaking.I can imagine this must really hurt and embarrass so many people especially to then hear it on youtube.I think the old fashioned way of breaking up face to face should be personal and not get anyone involved with the exception of violence

I think such a service has its uses, and there are certainly cases where "hiding" behind this anonymous call is a really good idea.
I do have at least 2 major problems with it though:
1. He posts the breakup calls on YouTube?? That is horrible. And if he tapes the call without the other person's knowledge/consent and then posts it openly, isn't that illegal? It sure should be. It's one thing to tape someone who you fear may have a dangerous overreaction and you're covering your bases for a possible restraining order, but people please.
2. It is so easy to abuse. How many douches out there (men and women) will gleefully and cowardly allow someone to break up a relationship just so they don't have to? In most cases, you owe your soon-to-be ex the courtesy of breaking things off yourself.
And anyway, isn't it cathartic (i.e. part of your healing process) to end a relationship yourself? To actually say the words "it's over"? I would think so.

I am a strong advocate of if you can't end it in person then you shouldn't be dating anyone in the first place. The person being dumped always deserves face to face, and no excuse. with the exception of ending a violent relationship, should anyone ever be so cowardice as to breakup over the phone, through text, through Facebook or through someone else.

I totally disagree with this and I would not like this to happen to me. People have to have more respect for each other especially after a relationship.

I think if the person you are breaking up with is the one at fault in the relationship, (eg, they cheated) and you don't want to deal with it, its a good idea. Some people aren't very good at breaking up, because they tend to listen to the excuses and change their mind about breaking up even though they should go through with it. For someone like that, it's better to send in the break up expert.

In my opinion that it messed up to have a service like that and especially to put it on youtube after i think people should just break up with the individual the old way face to face
