any way to break up with a significant other, besides face-to-face, just shows you they do not care enough for you to let you down the right way. I guess instant message is a little more personable than a text, but they both still suck.
Well I'm going to say the flip side since everyone is saying it's cowardly.
I was dumped through a text message once. True, I texted him asking him if he was dumping me because I hadn't heard from him in almost a week. He broke my heart, and I was just glad he wasn't there to watch me ball my eyes out. I was able to act composed, and carefree about the whole thing... Even though I was really falling apart.
It was stupid, and cowardly of him... But I was relieved. I didn't want him to see me like that.
