Would it be horrible to break up with a guy by calling him?

I won't break up with him if it goes to voice mail... but I get really nervous at school and I think that it would be a lot easier to do it through phone... Would that be totally incredibly horrible of me?

Don't call or text. Do it face to face. You were able to "date" him, you should be able to break up with him.

Not really, but he may take it as you being rude and unsure. If you tell him in person, then he might understand you better and it will (hopefully) end well. Good Luck!

You need to do it face to face.

A phone call is all right as long as you give him time to follow up on ur dialog. A flash break-up over the phone would be crude, but a long phone conversation that clearly spells out the inevitable is both private and discreet. If he over reacts he doesn't do it in public.

YES! Think of how you would feel! Face to Face is the *only* way to dump anyone. Unless they are a cheater and you personally saw them cheating.

it depends if you can see him everyday or not. When me and my ex broke up it was over phone but he lives an hour away. try to break up with someone in the most formal of settings as possible.

I broke up with my first boyfriend over the phone and I felt so bad afterward. Do it face to face. I don't think I could take it if my current boyfriend broke up with me over the phone.
