FML - The follow-up

Today, I received a break-up text while in a cramped car with my whole family. I had to choke back tears as we got stuck in traffic with the radio playing one love song after another. FML

Hey, OP here! I think I should point out that my girlfriend and I were in a half-long-distance relationship (same college but we live so far away from each other outside of the school year), so face-to-face wasn't exactly an option at the time. Though, I still would've appreciated a Skype/phone call over a text. But I was more upset that she told me what she thought of our relationship at such an inopportune time (I couldn't really let myself look upset so I had to hold it in), not to mention it was pretty unexpected (we saw our relationship going in different directions apparently). So I was pretty crushed when I opened the message. Oh, and for those wondering, my family knows NOTHING about my love life, so they had no clue about me having a girlfriend in the first place. That's the main reason why I didn't mention it. Luckily, we're now talking it out and we'll hopefully come to a mutual decision that will make us both happy in the long run. So no, I don't hate her or think she's an awful person simply for going about it the way she initially did. Thanks for the support, everyone. :)

What the hell is up with people breaking up via texts these days? Do these assholes not have even the decency to do it face-to-face? Seriously, a phone call would still be cowardly, but better than a damned text. What's next, breaking up via drone?

If he/she broke up with you with text he/she isn't worth your time.

Well sometimes the moon doesn't shine, but that doesn't mean the core of an avocado isn't going to be a sphere. We'll be right back after this messages to talk to the dog who was in the car with OP to get its opinion. Stay tuned.

I did that with an ex. But in my mind I had justification. We hadn't seen each other in a few months and the last time we texted was 3 weeks ago. In my mind, that's not a relationship. Therefore texting her seemed not that asshole-ish. (Given she and I were already starting to drift away and see other people)

I broke up with my ex via letter lol to my defense, he was in basic training for the Army so face to face was not an option. and before anyone gets pissed because I dumped him while he was in basic, he cheated on me and I didn't find out until after he already left.

it seems to me that this is a teenage relationship. It's hard to expect a bit to act like a man. in other instances I have no idea. parents need to teach their kids responsibility rather than giving in to everything kids want nowadays. It's a vicious circle, men that don't know how to be men trying to raise men.

#54- Actually, as I've already said, we're both college students, it's long-distance, and we're both girls. So none of your assumptions are true.

Years ago, I broke up with my high school girlfriend. Everyone told me to do it in person, so I did. She decided that as long as I was still there, we hadn't broken up. So she knocked me down and sat on me (not in a good way) for 45 minutes. I've broken up with everyone by text since then.

I've been broken up with by text AND by phone, both from the same girl. Thank God I finally learned, haven't talked to her in a year. Learn from me; if someone breaks up with you with either of those methods, don't go back to them, for your own good

I once got a note delivered to me by a mutual friend as a break up. He followed it up with an offer to be friends with benefits. The look on his face when I told him in person that I wanted my sex partners to at least have the courage to break up with me in person was great.

My friend forced me to go out with a guy that liked me so I could be more "socialized". Also, apparently rejecting him would kill his self-esteem and make me a bitch. He asked me out via text and broke up with me via text. I hate my generation.

He could have at least called you to break up... I mean I would prefer face to face, but a phone call would've been nicer. You should've asked your family to change the station. They probably would've complied. Most of the time love song after love song is annoying, even on a good day.
