Wouldn't it be more painful to have them look you in the eye while they break your heart?

From a relationship coaching perspective, I don't see it as offensive but instead cowardly. The general perception of my clients has been that someone breaking up with them via text was doing so to avoid a difficult and necessary conversation.

If I love someone I want them to do it face to face. Hiding behind a phone and breaking up is so easy and its as if the person meant nothing to you. Its reassurance that the person is also hurting cause that means they really cared about you. When I broke up w/my 1st love, that was painful, but I gave him the benefit of breaking up face to face.
