Someone said :
I was once broken up with while I was in hospital by a note passed through someone else
I don't see the huge issue with breaking up by text message, break ups are going to suck however it gets done, there is no good way. But me personally I wouldn't give a shit about the reasons someone wanted to break up with me, or want a long drawn out conversation about it, a text is better than watching someone cry while you're trying to tell them it's over and they are begging you and shit, and you take them back because of the tears but you don't really mean it and the circle of break up goes on and on.
Text... clean, crisp, to the point, preferably 140 characters or less.
are you saying it's better for the texter or better for both?
what you seem to be saying is a txt message doesn't allow for two way communication so you can say what you like without having to sit through the repercussions of it in case you find that sort of thing uncomfortable.
Well I reckon that's a horrible reason to endorse a text breakup. Why not also have doctors text families when a love one dies or if an operation goes wrong? or have Universities text unsuccessful applicants?
