Today, I got out of the shower and walked into my living room to see my sis' and her boyfriend sitting very closely on our family's fairly large couch. I laughed and said, "Look at the happy couple." Then her now ex-boyfriend burst into tears. Turns out they'd just broken up. FML

33 - No. The lack of punctuation in 12's comment is what is confusing you and 19. 12 said he hates to be that guy, but [it's] "have", not "of".

Of course it was. Makes sense then. Thanks #40 ☺

Would just like to say that punctuation matters - don't be the guy that "Likes eating his cats and his family..."

It seems as if there is a rift between the Grammar Nazis.

They are, at least momentarily, splitting between the Spelling and Punctuation battalions.

What is yet to come to all of us by-standers?

55- I think it depends more on the relationship than the time. I know people who were in 2-year-long relationships and weren't too hurt by the breakup. Other people can get close in just a few months and hurt by the breakup.

Not your fault OP why are they sitting so close if they broke up, she obviously broke up with him if he started crying so he could have got up and left rather than acting like a baby.

Ya true but he could have at least been rational about it, talked it over and come to terms a with what was happening rather than acting like a complete baby.

You don't know the situation. My ex cried even though he was the one who broke up with me, only because he was moving and didn't want to make a LDR work. Maybe that's the case here, or maybe the sister cheated, or maybe she dumped him unexpectedly. Either way, if he's crying it means he cared about the relationship and that's a good thing.

If you love someone your heart is with them and you make it work, long distance or not. From how I read the FML, I'm seeing it as he literally started bawling his eyes out like a sobbing baby. If he gradually started to tear up yeah it's different, but to actually burst out crying after the comment would make him seem like he's a bit of a baby.

#27: So a dude had an emotional reaction to an emotional situation, and you insult him for failing to be rational about it? All he did was cry. Do you not approve of men having or showing emotions?

On behalf of men everywhere, fuck you.

Well, he was sad, sure, but that will be the case in most break-ups, especially if one part wasn't noticing anything wrong.

But there wasn't any screaming and shouting, doors slamming or the like, and they weren't in different parts of the room, but close together. I'd call that good terms.
