    Nowadays, if I were to break up with someone I'd do it face to face, but back in the

    To be fair, I was afraid to do it face to face because he had intense anger control issues and he didn't have a phone or FB so we only communicated outside of school via email.

    *face palm* it was not the greatest way to do it though lol. My mom called his mom and apologized for my behavior lol

    The way I broke up with him was unacceptable. That and texting. I would maybe understand a phone call but face to face is the stand up way to do it.

    • You were 15, I think you can let that one slide. lol.

    • Oh good :p My mom STILL holds it against me - nearly 6 years later lol.

    • She tells me I'm not allowed to dump my current boyfriend that way and I'm like, "Well duh. I don't know his email address!" :D
