    Been dating a guy for about ten weeks. Today, he text message broke up with me.

    Didn't really see it coming. Guess my optimism got the best of me.

    He told me he had been talking to his ex again, and that the ex wanted him to move into an apartment with him. He had to follow his heart.

    Note to self: Don't date guys that still love their ex's.

    Looks like I'm single again! icon_biggrin.gif

    Sorry but any body that uses email or a text message to break up is a loser.

    I realize that this is the new communication tool(s) of the new millennium, but did it castrate people too?

    Grow a pair and break up in person.


    It may not feel like it, but you're better off...
    Too chicken to face you and running back to his ex? I give 'em three weeks and he'll be single again.

    Yeah, things were slow going, partly because he couldn't afford the gas money to come visit (he lives 30 or 40 minutes away from me) or had car issues, partly because I've been very busy... so I didn't get attached.

    Cell phones have made everyone lose any type of manners they might have had beforehand. Breaking up via text? Unbelievable. I went on a date with a guy who spent the entire time texting. I told him I hope he and his cell phone will be happy together.

    Sorry to hear about that Atlazeia. At least your heart is still in tact and the emotional pain of it all is minimal. Take care of yourself and before you know it you'll find someone sweet and awesome and new spoiling you with their cuddlings and smooches icon_smile.gif

    At least it was not ten months, rebound guys are usually not good to date unless they are totally over their ex....... trust me I know all about this lol.

    He was a peon. A loser. You are too good for him. You are better off without him. Soon he will regret what he did, but you will already have found someone better.

    That’s what I would I would want someone to say to me.

    To me, breaking up with anyone by way of text is pretty disrespectful. I had someone tell me they didn't want a 2nd date by way of text once and I thought that was even kind of rude (only later to hit on me at a bar and online). I think that's even worse than breaking up with someone by email, like someone did with a friend of mine after they dated for a couple of months.

    I also agree with Chizzad about dating anyone on the rebound, I, too, had to learn the hard way about that...after doing it twice.

    At least you're smiling about being single again - nothing wrong with that!

    at least you got that, i agree it's a pretty lame way to break up with somebody but the last guy that i dated which lasted around 6 months just decided to up and stop talking to me all together which is way lamer.

    ^--- This. A coward with no integrity, much less any respect from you. Fortunately it wasn't even a 2-month relationship, so just pick up and move on.

    Congratulations! There is one less douche-nozzle in your life. It may be hard now, but be glad you are rid of him.

    Let's not attack his character... he's not a loser. He's a sweet guy that was still attached to his ex and dated me as a rebound.

    But it was lame of him to not tell me he had reconnected with his ex and lame of him to text message brake* up.

    *Alex, I've had that Kelly video in my head all day!! Hahaha.

    So sorry. Better sooner than later though. I don't date anyone that talks about their ex.

    The texting thing. That's just rude. People think texting is so personal and should be taken literally. sick

    Sorry to hear this happened to you. If I could just impart to you one thing, it would be to relax and just know that at 24, you have so many guys out there to meet. You live in a large enough city - so please know that one day you will have little or no memory of this guy. You will soon be concentrating on somebody new and hopefully more level headed and deserving of you! It will happen!
