  • Depends how long you've been together, my friend recently got dumped via text after a 5 year intimate relationship, in that sort of situation then yeah it's massively disrespectful, it mainly depends on distance, closeness, and how long you've been together. To me doing it over the phone or over text is a dickish move anyway just simply because you are hiding from there emotions.

  • Yes personally because that means he or she doesn't have enough courage to do it in person. Therefore you never meant anything to them and / or they were cheating on you and didn't what to face you !!!

  • I never do it, it should be done formally face to face, however i know a lot of insecure women sometimes do it, probably fearing guilt or the reaction of their partners, and some men do it when they discount the importance of the woman. but I’m sure there’s other justifiable reasons.

  • Nope but it shows that u wanna hide from him.
    So talk to him face to face and tell the truth and reason too (because guys always get confused y u broke up) and during this he might try to convince u to not to break up with him.

    So be strong.
    And reason should be logical.

  • Yes. It is usually. It shows that the one breaking up with another doesn't have enough courage to say it in person. It also shows that the one breaking up has lost all respect and care for the other now.
    But in some cases, it is not the case. May be the one breaking up with the other has no other option left. May be they don't even talk to each other. And the only way to convey this message to other is by phone or a letter.

  • Yes, it indicates that one was too chicken to face the other. Also says that you couldn't even bother taking the time to tell them properly and to their face.

  • I alway's do that (and they did the same broke up with me over the Phone too).

    I think it's not to be mean or cruel but to avoid a lot of Drama and (possible) verbal assaults or not so much of man as of woman. I never ended a relationship face-to-face.

  • Yeah. I mean to say that if you've genuine reason than only you should proceed to it. After all its about the time in which you both feel special to each other so take a deep breath and discuss with your partner that what's going on between us. And should we go for breakup

  • Nope. Its the being alone again that hurts. If you wanna let a guy down gently then hint in person until its nearing saying, and pull back. Then tell him its over over the phone!! Just do it.

  • It's a d*ck move... Of course it depends on the situtation and the depth of relationship with the person, but it's definitely one of the worst ways to break up with someone!

  • Yes... unless there is a good reason why it can't be done in person (distance or safety) then it should at the very least be done over the phone

  • It is, but millennials are so connected through their phones and their primary communication in relationships is with and through their phone. People these days resort to passive communication all the time so actually breaking up with someone in person is much bolder action than people are willing to do.

  • yes, extremely. if you really cared and loved that person you would break up face to face and end it properly with respect and closure, and not dump them over a phone.

  • Yes, that's more of face to face thing. I would want to have this person tell it to my face and listen to what I have to say, and then we can go on our merry ways.

  • It depends on how long you guys of been dating. If you were dating for a couple of weeks maybe even a month or so that it's not a big deal. But if you guys were like together for like a long period of time like about half a year to a year or more than yes its very disrespectful. It doesn't matter who did what (unless in the case of abuse), are you guys both owe it to each other to hash it out in person
