  • It depends. Generally I would say its in poor taste but there are a few exceptions. If you had not been seeing each other long (Less than a month or so) or if you think the person might get violent or not be able to control their emotional reaction.

  • I've been on the receiving end of that phone call, it was a text first then she probably thought she'd make the call so she wasn't being a total pussy. For me, if it's over it's over, I don't really care how you do it. But when I break up with someone I look them in the eye, just because it seems the proper thing to do.

  • Hell to the No. That's something you absolutely should do in person.

  • Not really. You shouldn't be together with anyone you'd seriously consider dumping by phone. The only exception would be if the person were in prison or a mental institution, or had fled overseas.

  • It all depends on your situation at hand at that given moment. If it is really a Bad relationship that is going down a bad beaten path, then yes, I would have to say a 'Phone call' is best from the rest.
    However, if the relationship really does call for face to face, then do this with grace... or even a kind and generous email or Dear John letter to get it all out in the open.
    Good luck. xx

  • Depends on situation. And the guy.
    I mean do you feel you owe a good break up talk with him? I believe people show their real faces when they go. So if you are not cheated on or you do not have any bad memories with him, face to face is better.
