do you think that it is now acceptable for someone to break up with a person over the internet or over text, or do you think that no matter what, these methods will always be seen as unacceptable?

I think you should always do it face to face unless you have a really good reason not to, like they're away on holiday and you can't wait until they come back.

Can I just say, that makes me slightly less sympathetic about your relationship issues you were posting about before.

i think it depends why you're dumping them, if it's because they treated you like s**t, thats how they deserve to be treated

Well I suppose it's slightly different then. It just sounded a bit callous really.

i personally wouldnt do it in that way.

doing it over a phone or by proxy through a friend just shows you have no guts in my opinion.

I had been going out with my bf for over two years and we both new a break up was immanant. He wouldn't answer my calls see me or read any emails that I sent him because be knew what was comming so I txt him and told him that if he wouldn't meet me then I would have to dump him by txt and after all the time that we had been together I really didn't want to do that. Luckily he did come to see me and so I didn't have to dump him by txt which I would have hated to do. However the point I am trying to make is that sometimes when the other person doesn't give you any other option you have to do things that in other situations aren't acceptable.

No. It's out of order. As said before, it is a spineless method of breaking up with someone. ^^

I completely disagree with that and everyone else Personally I've never broken up with anyone/been broken with face to face. Maybe it does take more guts, but it's a lot easier for the person who is being broken up with too. If someone dumped me face to face I would feel pretty crappy really, very embarrassed, because it would be a horrible and awkward situation. Why go through that?

Would you rather prefer receiving a text out of the blue saying "Your dumped", and basically never see/have any sort of contact with that person again?

It's a bad thing, unless you really, really hate them.

I'm not saying I wouldn't want to have contact with them again, but yes I would much rather prefer a text message - quick and painless. Wouldn't you?

I'd prefer the face-to-face method. I just wouldn't like to break up with someone from a text, or e-mail.

Each to their own though.

If someone can start going out with someone via text or the internet, why should the ending of a relationship be saved from being relayed via said mediums?

Actually, I think starting a relationship by text would be pretty strange as well... it's not like anyone would ask someone to marry them by text (WL U MRY ME??). Without getting a slap, that is.

Either way, the human element of the romance is removed. And shouldn't love be about people and their emotions- not mobiles and digital communication?
