I keep seeing people advise to break up in person because it's considered respectful but I disagree. I'd rather be dealt a blow where I can cry and freak out privately because in person I turn into a shell shocked mute and it's just so awkward. Like you get together, they dump you, they leave.

Life is awkward sometimes. It's just polite to do it in person. You'll never find a way to break up where its fun and everyone goes home happy but at least you know for those 5 minutes you're the only thing on his mind... I mean com'on, with smartphones nowadays if I were allowed to breakup by text I could break up with 30 women in under a minute (and probably make plans with 30 other girls in under 5 minutes) so I'm pretty sure you're all thinking I have no heart and don't see these women as people. (which is my point against texting 'we're breaking up')0

Definitely in person. Whattt?
I'd wear one of my best dresses, and I'd do up my face seductive af. I'd get right up in the boy's face, grab the back of his neck with my hand, stare right into his eyes, get my lips within about 1 inch of his, and give it to him:
"Go ahead, tell me. Tell me it's over. NOW."
If he could actually tell me "it's over" with me right up in his face like that, then, I'd respect it. I'd turn around, walk right out of his life, and he'd know right away just how big a mistake he'd made.
But... yeah, I don't think he'd be able to do it. I think things would be very much... not over, at that point.
In fact, ironically, this is a very, very hot role play -- *IF* you are in a relationship that ISN'T in danger of breaking up.
This whole role play where he's like "I'm leaving you", and our relationship is hanging on by a thread, and I take all that passion, and all that desperation, and fuck him right back into my life.
Try it, you'll like it.2
