idk what is worse doing that or just not knowing what to say... same thing happened to me but at least it was on April 1st

they're both equally wrong! Op shouldn't be so immature about it but the girl shouldn't be messing with his feelings like that.

How is it vindictive to agree with the girlfriend and tell them where you viewed the relationship went wrong? You're SUPPOSED to tell your partner when you're having issues with the relationship.

But technically a that point they were not partners anymore. Or at least that's what he thought. I don't blame him. I mean it was bad but why would she do that. If my bf ever did that to me, I would be SOO pissed!

10 He was being emotionally played, and although that wasn't the best option, it seems the girlfriend is at fault the most here. If your significant other broke up with you over text message I'm sure you wouldn't text back "it's okay babe, ik u just jking". You would be mad. If you wouldn't be, I don't think you care about your SO enough.

10 - I love how you ignore all the hints towards how much OP cares about this girl. Sure, that was harsh on his part, but to lash out in such a manner means he has deep feelings for this girl. If anything OP's gf should feel honored to know some guy loves her so much that he'd retaliate in such a huge manner to having his heart broken by her childish antics.

125, You can't possibly have a long list of things you hate about a person if your relationship is going well. And if you really do care about said person you don't go attacking them because they break up with you, you act like a normal person who understands that relationships sometimes don't work out and unless shes doing something explicitly cruel or deceptive then its not something worthy of insult. They're both idiots, her because she pulls cruel stunts like that and him because hes in a

Bollocks. I'm an adult and if my husband tried to dump me via text, my response would be "wtf? Let's talk" not "here's a long list of shit I hated about you anyway so there!" I'm not justifying her behaviour but his response was juvenile and not the product of a healthy affection. This relationship is better off over.

224 - You ignored what I was talking about and took it literally. OP was heart broken and in a very volatile state, more than likely justi listing stupid things he doesn't really "hate", but just trying to show her how much pain she put him through. Sure it's childish and moronic, but for OP to do that shows he loves her a lot. If he hadn't said anything and just accepted it and cried it would show he's ready to leave. When someone becomes hostile like that in an emotional state, it's

254, I suppose that's a possibility, but as there is no indication as to this list not being completely accurate it seems unlikely to me. But assuming you're right, hes just a douche for being unable to act like a rational person, so I have no sympathy for him at all if that is the case.

Wow, that was a mean trick for her to play on you. She kinda deserved it. But you probably shouldn't have reacted that way either.

he had every right to if he thought she broke up with him in text the most petty way to break up with someone.

Reply

Don't think "just kidding" will excuse a brutal and thorough litany of all her flaws an shortcomings.

Reply

Am I the only one thinking she is cheating on him and the message was meant for someone else but when she realized her mistake she tried to play it off as a joke?

Reply

I agree 115. Why would you do that to your bf as a joke. Especially over txt messaging. That means one of two things: Either op's gf is an attention whore, or she's cheating on him.

Reply

105- I'm pretty sure OP mentioned some things about her that only he would know. Does anyone else really wanna know what happened next?

I'm guessing her response was somewhere in the neighborhood of "Is that what you think? Well than bye-bye bastard." Of course I could be off by a word or two.

Reply

I say just be happy ending it with her. If she's gonna do stupid shit like that I'd be done with her. That's not even a real jone.

Reply

Or Maybe she was trolling. She was lookig for a reaction an she found it and loled. She did say I would never leave you. Time to put it too the test.

While breaking up as a joke is rather untoward (and via text message is just childish), we have no direct evidence that this behavior was routine or even precedented. I would hesitate to call 'abuse' in this case. I agree that perhaps a breakup was the best solution, though, since he obviously had a long list of unvoiced issues with his partner.

It doesn't seem like an abusive relationship, but who pretends to break up with someone as a joke? It isn't funny, and it feels more like she was just testing waters to see how he would react because she is planning on breaking up.

Reply

When you play a hurtful joke on someone, expect for them to lash out and try to hurt back. Not always the best thing to do, but it is human nature. People do what his gf did as an immature way to get reactions. She should have been prepared for any reaction at that point.

Yeah I hope so because no one can prove what the list is about. These idiots should stop assuming it's a list of abusive things

Reply

Nowhere. Idiots are just assuming it was abusive just because OP was able to make a long list of negative things about her, and they don't even have any evidence to prove that the relationship is abusive

#90 How come I got thumbed down, you got thumbed up and our replies to #14 were so similar? I guess a lot of FMLers aren't morning people...

198 - Who, me? No, my profile picture is me playing airsoft at a site just outside my town. We get quite a few FCA and Defence Forces guys playing, sure, but I ain't one. :P

Reply

That reminds me of that video "You Don't Text Message Breakup" (or whatever the title was). Of course, there is something to be said for the character of an (ex-)boyfriend that would lash out childishly by creating a list of negative attributes to send his ex.

112 - You are a bitch! You lied to a guy by saying "yes" to a relationship you didn't want to be in, then you have the gall to break up with him over text? People nowadays have no "back bone" when it comes to breaking up, they just text a break up cause they're to much of a coward to actually do it face to face. Regardless of the guys flaws, you shouldn't have dated him "because you feel bad" that's horrible. Only bitches and cowards break up over text. As for you

I remember a long time ago, I started dating my best friend, and things weren't working out. I called him and asked him if he would come over so we could talk about things, he told me he would try to be over. A few hours later he texts me and says he can't make it and told me to just text it to him. I didn't want to break up with him through text, but he didn't give me any other option. A few days later we were able to work things out, accept our relationship failed, and put our friendship over

Reply

The only reason I've ever dumped someone over text is because he and I were long distance. I know I could have called/webcammed him, but I just knew how he was and chose the best solution. :s

Reply

You're such a hoebag. why would you lead someone on like that? You don't deserve to be happy and you definitely don't deserve him.

Reply

Meh, I've done it before. I was young and didn't see any difference really. I saw it as a format in which I could word everything I wanted to say properly without having to worry about saying something the wrong way, or hurting her more by saying something inappropriate. It was the safer option not because I was too afraid to call or visit but because I was worried I'd be unable to make my entire point known, in fact they all seemed to be on the same level of shittyness in my head. I wasn't howe

My ex broke up with me through a text message cause she was too selfish and cowardly to say it to my face. Plus, she had to play the game she was addicted to.
