Would you prefer a phone call or face-to-face?
Wouldn't it be more painful to have them look you in the eye while they break your heart?

Exactly, it's more painful in real life because it's more real. When you do it over a phone you don't get the same emotional response so it just lingers unresolved and you repress your emotions.1

Think about where they are when they're texting you. Texting basically says I didn't care enough about you to do it without any inconvenience to me. It's not more painful. There's nothing that will make it less painful. But someone looking you in the eye is far more respectful1
