Tell Someone You’re Breaking Up In Person, Or Don’t Tell Them Anything At All

Pin it

Last week, we asked you what the best method is for calling things off with someone you’re casually dating (like, 3 dates to pre-exclusive.) In person? By text? By email? Or by just…not calling.

For some reason I was convinced that “by email” would win this one, but nope: 31% of you said break-ups should happen in person. The “fade out” (not calling, dropping off the face of the planet) was the second most popular option. This is definitely the easiest break-up method to enact…and also the most confusing, if you’re the one being inexplicably dumped.

Incredibly, it was the options somewhere between a face-to-face confrontation and all out avoidance that got the fewest votes: texts, emails, and phone calls are not popular ways to call things off.

So either you tell someone to their face — or you avoid them for the rest of your life? You guys are really all or nothing — I respect that.
