I know everyone says it's horrible to break up over the phone, but is it really that bad?

yes its a lot better to do it in person less chance of it ending badly.

it's harsh on May 12, 2010 @ 01:09 pm

Think of it this way: would you like to be broken up with over the phone? I think the most respectful way to break up is face-to-face because it gives you the best opportunity to explain yourself (i.e. they can't hang up on you) and you may be able to talk it over and ends things on an amicable note.

Of course, the phone is a lot better than a text message or email....

Amen to no breaking up via text or email! That is a no-fly zone. Telephone is not the best but if you cannot have the conversation in person because either you are afraid of his reaction or you feel you cannot bring yourself to say what you need to when face to face, it could be acceptable. Ultimately, the way you break up will dictate the post-relationship friendship, and that might be a big consideration for you.

Depends on the situation on May 12, 2010 @ 01:44 pm

If it was a good relationship and you respect him, in person is the way to do it with dignity. However, if it was a volatile situation I think any method is fine.

Very much depends.. on May 12, 2010 @ 03:05 pm

It really just depends on how long the relationship is. In my opinion.
If it was only a fling/weekly relationship, I don't feel there would be much of an emotional attachment..
BUT, if you considered it some-what of a serious relationship, I would definetly do it in person.

Yes! I agree with Cathy and MamaLuv, NEVER do it over a text, that is a horrible way from anyway you look at it.


I did it, but it didn't work on May 12, 2010 @ 09:42 pm

i called him because i could stand doing it in person, he ended up surprising me at my door... so i had to do it in person, i said it in a nice way we cried and now he thinks we are still together

Sounds like it turned into a pretty awkward situation and he's going to make it harder for you now since you have to bring it up again.... :( That's happened with some girls I know - they try to be really nice about it and the guy gets confused into thinking they didn't break up...

Your next step really depends on how you left it off. If you may have said something in the heat of the moment that led him to believe you changed your mind about the break-up, then you should probably give him a call to set things straight. But if you made it pretty clear then I would wait until he contacts you next and say something then.

Good luck
