I think it kinda depends on the length and seriousness of the relationship. If you've only been out a few times or together a few weeks I feel like there's nothing wrong with a text or a call. But if you've been together for a while like several months/ years and it's more serious then definitely face to face is the more respectful way to end it.

Has to be done F2F but with some compassion. You may wind up hurting the other person but you don't need to be a douche about it. Be honest & direct & try not to place blame all on them for the failure of the relationship. F2F, that's how it should be done.
I learned that F2F is the only real respectable way to end things after realizing the damage I did by ending a relationship with a phone call & feeling pretty crappy when someone broke up with me in a letter.
I did date one girl that was CRAZY. Seriously, I got a little scared one time we had a big fight & I started to tell her that I think we needed to take a break for awhile. She got all intense & had the crazy eyes. In the end I had a friend of mine do it for me. I know that sounds like a puss move but the next day, my car window was smashed, I had 4 flat tires & she threw a rock through my front window. She actually wound up stabbing her next boyfriend in the thigh. She was nuts, but totally smoking. I wonder what she's doing these days. Maybe I'll give her a call.
