Because she was probably sitting there, in shock and still reeling from the absurdity of it all, and trying to calculate the bill in her head, when turned over the box and saw the $2 sticker and thought: Great. A break up, the food bill, AND a freakin; $2 box (that I thought was a real jewelry box with an engagement ring in it) is all I have left.
Kick his ass? Do most of you girls actually think you are able to kick your boyfriends ass? Not going to happen unless he is really small and frail, or you are fucking huge. You've got a nice surprise coming for you the day you physically attack a guy that actually doesn't give a shit and what gender the attacker is and retaliate.
It kinda depends, guys may be stronger but it's also about technique. OP could thrash him if she knows what she's doing. Or even if she doesn't and he's not expecting it. And at the end of the day, girls can give pretty mean slaps which people don't normally get violent at.
I'm thinking it's not the fact that he broke up with her that makes the guy a jackass (though it does suck for the OP). He's a jackass because of how he set it up; it's more than obvious that his whole goal was to make her think he was proposing when his plan all along was to dump her. If you're going to be sarcastic little bitches, don't be so stupid about it.
wait wait wait... So you think that it is only ok to break up if both parties agree?? Yeah... no. Disrespectful or not, what if one person is a clingy needy emotionaly abusive partner while the other just wants some space? Then they should break up with the clingy person despite if they don't want it or not! Its not a mutual desicion, though sometimes it is. Most likely its just when one person desides they just don't like the other. This also means you agree with this post, right? http://www.fmylife.com/love/3991086
I actually must agree with these posts. It's fairly hard to believe he'd do all that just for the sake of being a jerk. There are people who do that, but isn't it usually to people they don't actually know? I dunno about her deserving it though. She perhaps has no idea what she did wrong, and he expected her to realize it. When she didn't, he got pissed and dumped her on the ground. Doesn't necessarily make him a jackass, but it certainly doesn't excuse him. Doesn't necessarily mean she deserves it, but it's not much to pity her over...
Y'Know, part of me wonders if she was one of those needy girls who pesters her boyfriend mercilessly to propose... If so, that is kind of an awesome way to break it off with someone... In theory. To actually DO it is just hideously cruel. She may have deserved to be dumped, but not that way, though kudos for creativity
I think youi're being uber naive. People suck. They may occasionally aspire to be something better but they are selfish, nasty, hurtful bastards who would very much do shit like this just coz it'd be 'funny'. Sorry this happened OP. It's a cliche I know but you are waaaaaaaaaay better off without him.
YDI. Right from the first line -- he never takes you out to dinner. Life tip: some people are assholes, some people aren't, but nobody ever changes. You should've seen it coming and dumped his ass first.
Number Ten: Actually, the statement "Nobody ever changes" is incorrect. My best friend's aunt spent a total of four years, two of which at the time both were engaged, with an asshole. She ended it with him and in a little while found someone she thought was better than her ex. They got engaged soon thereafter, and when her ex found out, he made a complete turnaround because he thought he lost her. The ex found out she was single, after the second guy abused her, and asked her out many months ago. Today they've bought a home, soon to be married and are planning on kids. So you're wrong; people CAN change. The shitty part is though, it's completely up to the asshole to change.
