Is it bad to break up with someone through a text

Report as

In my opinion, its okay but not prefered by the person who is finding out through text. Ive had a lot of girlfriends and none of the relationships have worked out, my last one broke up with me using a phone call and told me that she had been cheating on me for awhile. So breaking up with someone by text gets the job done, but if you did it in person it would be better for the receiver, unless the person your breaking up with will hurt you or cause you other problems like kidnapping you or stuff like that, Facebook drama doesnt count because Facebook drama is stupid. But to directly answer your question then yes it is fine to break up with someone over text. :) Hope that answered your question.

if its an abusive relationship, NO! but it is really impersonal otherwise. Maybe you should send a txt sayin ...... I want to break up, so you need to call me! thats sounds pimp and respectful!! hope it helps!!

Yes, don't do that. If you are in a relationship with someone, the least you can do is break up when them in person. Would you want to be broken up with over a text? You need to face your problems, not run from them.

In general you should have the decency to break up with someone in person. The only exception to that, would be if the relationship is abusive, or there is reason to believe that the person you are breaking up with might harm you for trying to break up with them. In that case though, I'd probably send a letter, and have all my phone numbers changed anyways, so that they can't continue to contact me.

Yes.....makes whoever did it look like a coward and it's just not the right way to do it, weather y'all were really close or not or if you knew each other for 8 years or 8 days. It means more when in person.

If you cant face the situation in person you are proving yourself guilty and coward. If you are true and honest then face the situation.

I think that it's bad because it just shows that you don't have the guts to break up wid them so in person so... unless you really think you have to then don't because it's not the best way to get it done xD

i say yes and no.
yes, because telling someone strait up is always the right way to go, because you always have that chance of being friends still. and also makes you look good.


and no, because if that person that youre breaking up with over texting is crazy, and might want to hit you, or yell @ you wont have that chance over texting.
