Today, my boyfriend took me to dinner. As we waited for our food he took my hand and said, "I think we should break up." When I got outside, my tire was flat. FML

Your boyfriend AND your tire broke up with you the same evening? Damn. That positively sucks OP, but, on the bright side, there's a great opportunity to call up a cute mechanic!

Well, I guess while he broke your heart, he broke your car as well. Sorry OP!

The great metaphor of life.

At least you got a nice dinner, and an ex who was respectful of you. I'm sure the tire is an unrelated coincidence.

it's pretty shitty to break up with someone in public.

well, the end result is the same, then. unless he was loud about the whole thing, to humiliate her. it wasn't mentioned, so i assume it was a nice quiet affair.

no. dumping someone in public means they can't get too upset, it's basically trying to control their reaction and feelings. which is bullshit (unless they are violent or some other legit reason but generally it's a BS tactic).

BS or not, it's still valid. I would expect the girlfriend to do the same thing.

It is. But our gender is really stupid (i apologise) but to us this makes sence. Eventhough I know this is a big no no and certainly would never do it, I dont understand why. I think it would be nice to bring her to the restaurant and afterwards talk to her in private in order to let the relationship end in a nice setting. But like I said: fear not we know this is a no go. We just dont get why... (Or at least I don't)

Who wants to be seen crying and/or breaking down in public? Whether he made a big scene or not, a lot of people can't stop themselves from crying during a breakup and that itself is very embarrassing.

actually he broke up with her while they were waiting for their food

Ok. If I can't break up with her in public because it is manipulative, can I propose in public? Or is that manipulative too? (Real qustion). Also, why would you 2ant me to dump you in your apt, somewhere you are home and supposed to feel safe?

40 - proposing in public without first making sure your partner is ready to say yes is manipulative, yes. If they aren't ready they may feel pressured into saying yes, because turning down a public proposal would make them look like the villain.

I'm iffy about anyone proposing without talking about it first, tbh. It makes it very hard for the other person to say no without making the proposer feel like shit. But I don't think it's always manipulative to do, just maybe thoughtless, like they might be so in love they just want to share it with everyone. I don't know.

i'm pretty sure the tire was flat so OP would be stuck with the bill? no? thats what i assumed

I mean of all the ways to be broken up with I feel getting fed is a good way to go. Also as a side note perhaps he broke up with her in public in order to control her reaction because he didn't want her to talk him back in to a situation that he doesn't want to be in. a lot of private break ups result in the other party causing a scene, crying, yelling, and then begging to be taken back. some weaker willed or guilty feeling people accept and go back even though they don't want to. so breaking up in private sort of releases them from the angry side of a break up.

You're so unlucky girl

I will never understand why some people think it's a good idea to break up with someone in a public place... Hell, he didn't even let you have your meal. I think you may have dodged a bullet If he's that inconsiderate.

Thats like getting a present, which is a slap to the face then when you look up get slapped again.

When one door closes, another one opens

Lol, yep. Like the one to his truck!

That was very inconsiderate of him. Though you should be happy he had the decency to do it to your face and not over text, also the flat tire could be a coincidence

It's obvious that you didn't lose anything worthy. Get out there and have a girls night out to cheer up and then move on. They're better guys than him.

This doesn't feel right. A third thing must go wrong. Watch out, OP.
