    Depends on the context of the relationship. If it mattered at one point, better to dump by person. If it's cheating/ extreme anger/ doesn't really matter then text is fine.

    Food for thought:

    If anyone did that to me they would get a piece of my mind and they would probably be to scared to talk to me ever again. Man up and that kind of thing face-to-face

    I think it's a highly sensible thing to do. People naturally complain about it because they want to feel anger to someone who's just dumped them.
    If I was to be dumped, it's probably my preferred method, except maybe the Phones4U adverts. It gives me the ability to save face and calmly inform them later that I think their friend is hotter anyway.

    "He took me to a nice restaurant and he dumped me in public." Sucks.
    "He said he was coming over, so I got naked and made him a nice meal, but he dumped me." Sucks.
    "He took me to where we first met, I thought he was going to propose and he dumped me." Sucks.

    I think it's a cowardly way to break up with someone and you should do it face to face.

    If you don't want to be with them then it doesn't matter how you 'dump' them

    I've done it, yes. Or rather, he asked me out, I told him I wasn't sure, we had another date and then I told him by text I didn't want a relationship. He then wouldn't stop texting me.

    I think it's a bit of a ****ty thing to do in most cases. People seem to see it as an easy way out, but I think it's kind of cowardly - I'd at least face the person and tell them I didn't want to be with them.

    The person you quoted said it's acceptable to dump by text if they cheated... you disagreed with them.

    I disagree too. The fact they are a **** doesn't require you to be one.

    Doing it in person rather than text is a matter of respect. Cheating is the most disrespectful thing someone can do, and if someone gives you no respect I see no reason to give them any.

    It's not respect, simply common courtesy.

    I've done it. Some girls can get really *****y and aggressive when you tell them you don't want a serious relationship. Better to do it in public though so they're less likely to ***** out.

    No. No. No. Just phone the person instead. The problem i have with this is the idea of someone else seeing it first or they get it in the wrong setting. And how is the person in denial supposed to know it came from you not someone with access to your phone?

    I think it is also a respect thing, if I invested time in a relationship with you the least you can do it call me.
