The 10 Most Ridiculous Ways to Get Dumped

Twisted 6

Breakups happen. And most of the time, when you get dumped, it sucks a lot, for a long darn time. I've spent months wallowing after a breakup, unsure if anyone ever will love me ever again.

But there are ways to be dumped that aren't so bad -- you both walk away as friends or pretending to be friends for the time being. Then, there are the other ways. The WORST ways to get dumped.

Here's a list of the worst ways you can get dumped.

1) Sending a text message: "I won't be meeting you for dinner tonight -- or ever."

2) Having his mom call you and tell you, "Tyler won't be dating you anymore."

3) By training your parrot to say, "you're a selfish bitch," over and over again.

4) Leaving a Post-It note under your wiper blades on the windshield of your car that says, "We're over. PS. You're bad in bed."

5) By changing his Facebook relationship status from "in a relationship" to "single."

6) Wrapping up a note that says, "I don't see us working out" and hiding it in a robin's egg blue Tiffany & Co ring box.

7) Tapping his wine glass, then making the announcement, "Hi all, thanks for inviting me to your lovely party. I'm not going to be seeing you again after this, as I am breaking up with your daughter right now," to your entire family during your Christmas celebration.

8) Via phone call from his NEW girlfriend.

9) Directly before a family party he was supposed to attend with you. So you show up to your Aunt Ruth's 50th birthday party all weepy and depressed, having to answer questions about where "that nice young man" is.

10) Through a mutual friend.

What are some of YOUR getting dumped nightmares?

By sending a letter through your little brother because you didnt wanna do it yourself. Yeah that happened to me..

After sleeping with someone for the first time, I go to take a shower, and when I get out you're gone and leave me a text that says that "things arent gonna work out." Yeah, that happened to me too.

Except that last one was done by my husband (when we first started dating), as a joke to see my reaction. It was much worse than he expected and he felt so bad afterward.

Oh Doomy, that's awful! Sweet that you you stayed with him and married him though :-) Made me smile.


This article has me wondering why people are so mean to each other? Is breaking up with someone so hard? I did it once. I didn't like it. We parted as "friends" that will never really speak to each other again. But we are both happy elsewhere now.


Everyone I know has a "he cheated on me instead of breaking up with me" story! Or the, "I got a text to break it off" story. I just think if you are grown up enough to date, be grown up enough to be honest if you don't want to see them anymore.

Mine was, he went off to a training camp through the military, Few days later my rival walks up to me and hands me a marriage certificate with his name on it and her name. It wasn't fake. He never returned my calls. I found out soon after that she was pregnant. So she was pregnant while we were dating and she knew the entire time we were together still and she didnt give a care. 


Lets just say not even a yr after they were married she left him because OMG he cheated on her too. She never saw that coming....

We were engaged he left to go to a ship (both of us navy) and he called me at midnight to tell me it was over.  Then that may we got back together.

The day of my grandmothers funeral through a text. I think it might have had something to do with the fact that I broke up with him a week before and took it back. He was very narcissistic.

My ex was supposed to have come to my college graduation but he said he got a phone call from some girl, didn't say her name, but I have an idea of who it could have been, anyways, she told him that I said I didnt want him at my graduation. So he didn't show. We havent talked since 2 weeks before the graduation. That is a pretty sorry way to break up with someone.
