You guys could be missing a big part here, did anybody consider the fact that they could have been together for a very long time and he could have built an amazing relationship with her parents? And sobbing after a break up doesn't make you a little bitch; it shows that you care.

Well I was thinking the same thing but through this site I've realized that men get called every sexist name in the book: douche bag, asshole, prick, dick. But you need to realize, like I have, that coming to our defense will either get your comment removed, or attacked. And you obviously cannot call a female a cunt, bcz that's is crossing the line. The names they call men are appropriate but once you use the "c" word to counter prick or dick. You have crossed the line. Learn the rules

I'm well of the rules my friend. I'm the holy defender of men! The speaker of truth, the perspective that needs a voice. The shield against sexism. I. Am. BATMAN

#56--Agreed. I personally contacted my boyfriend's parents after he broke up with me. I wasn't looking to whine and manipulate them into making him get back with me, but because we were in a long-term relationship and his parents were like parents to me, so I thought they deserved to know. I still think that showed respect and maturity, not the other way round.

Agree with 56. Over the years I've built up a relationship with my boyfriends parents. I couldn't just cut them out of my life at the drop of a hat. Of course I would at least call to explain the situation and say goodbye, maybe sort out other arrangements. My mum still visits her ex-husband's mum because they were so close and they divorced over 20 years ago! Calling someone 'too immature for a relationship' just for calling their partner's parents after a break up makes you sound too immature for a relationship yourself, or at least very ignorant of how a long term relationship affects other aspects of life.

I didn't mean to be sexist with the first comment. It'd be immature for a woman to do that as well. I don't get the idea that he was too close to the parents or else I think OP would say

1/69 - Her parents were apparently one of the first people he called after the breakup. What on earth about that makes you get the feeling he wasn't close with them??? I think you made that idea up in your head.

Maybe I've just dated some bad guys then. But if it were me, and it had been a long term relationship, I would be too upset to talk to my now exes parents. Memories and what not

You ever think that maybe he was close with her parents? We don't know the situation. Perhaps she was breaking up with him because she wanted to do something dangerous like run away or commit suicide. In that case, it'd be encouraged to call her parents.

See, I agree about not knowing the situation, but I think it's more that he's close to the parents. If she was planning to run away or commit suicide, like you said, I think OP would include that in the FML. That's kind of a big event in someone's life, and I would hope OPs parents would sit and talk to her about it if it was concerning them or the ex-boyfriend.

117 - earthling was merely stating that through the ambiguity of the comment, we can't make any personal, precise conclusions. Also, earthling wasn't proposing that OP was trying to commit suicide, those were just examples of how farfetched the situation could be

I think he is being a gentleman by informing the parents and not treat them like a sideline character. A gentleman respects everyone and he is doing just that.

He needs some new balls. You're better off without him.

  HKCgrimmjow  |  15

Why does he need new balls, like I said he could have been in a long term relationship. If you've ever been in one you'd understand the feeling. Nothing to do with balls and he could have built an amazing relationship with his parents

Beers with her father after a breakup is fine if you have a good relationship. Calling for advice moving forward, with a cracking voice, is also ok and shows deep emotion. Full on bawling is, unfortunately against man code and entirely unacceptable.

And who said sensitivity was dead! I see a great deal of it in that comment. OT: Don't worry I shared a bit of emotional moments, it doesn't make me a pussy or the need to grow a pair, it makes me human.

Why would you call your Ex's parents though? Backup? And Crying as well? Not only is that a punk move, it's incredibly invasive. Call your own parents when you have a pity party. Long-term or not.

Say you're close to the parents? What if he felt betrayed? For all you know OP could've done something horrible to her ex. Stop being so judgmental.

He sound alike quite performer and who calls the parents of the girl you just dumped? Sounds like dad is going out on a hunting trip...

Reply
  Wizardo  |  33

Holy cheese balls, my bad I read that completely wrong. Let me rephrase, why would you call the family of the girl that dumped you, surely you would call your own first. Rectification complete?

-32 It sounds like this whole situation needs a counseler...or maybe a doctor? Also, it's possible her parents, like already said, were like family, and his weren't there..

Why cry over her, she's just a douchebag who thinks she has talent.

#22 It may be sucking up, and I had anticipated the downvotes, but that still wont stop me from being honest ;) No one in their right mind should be jealous of Nikki Minaj or anyone like her for that matter... Especially when they're helping others for a living.

I think I have an idea of why you broke up with this sobbing clingy douche-nozzle, OP- I hope your parents told him he needed to grow some gonads and move on. Be strong, OP, and keep going away from this crybaby!!

Reply

Why are people so quick to say he is a crybaby? Maybe it was a good relationship that he thought could be more? Getting dumped is a horrible thing, and though it is inevitable, if it was a good relationship crying is completely normal.

yeah i was thinking of that one too =/ god i would be so pissed if my parents did that if me and my ex weren't on good terms and talked about it first. Ironically my 2nd gf's parents called me and told me they still loved me and i should come back whenever after she broke up with me lol i didn't take them up on the offer.
