    Doesn't it seem cruel to you to break up with someone and then want them to be hurt, to be annoyed when they aren't. It's called schadenfreude, taking pleasure in other people's pain.
    Or they are just surprised because she thought that he would have shown a reaction if he loved her. Would you really expect your partner to just go 'k' if you broke up with them? That's why people ask how to break up with someone nicely because they presume beforehand that their partner will get upset.

    Not only would I not be surprised, I would want them to say that. Wanting them to suffer is simply malicious.

    also, even if someone is hurt I don't think they should show it at all, if you can't keep the girl at least keep your dignity. Don't let someone delight in how much you want them but can't have them.

    So I planned to break up with him today and I did it after about 10mins of meeting him at his house. But, he didn't really seem to care and I was incredibly blunt about it and I feel like my ego has been bruised a bit, like am I that insignificant to him?

    Anyway this just makes me 10 times more certain that it was the right idea...

    Another awkward thing that happened was that on my way home I saw his brother and he smiled at me #awks
    Good that he turned the tables..
