As we’ve said, sometimes all what you really need is a short letter to get your point across. This is also true of break up notes. Of course, breaking up in person, while difficult, is always the more considerate and mature route to go. But we understand that it’s 2019 and that people no longer lack the emotional and communication skills that they did 20 years ago. So, if you’re going to break up with somebody via text, then you might as well make it quick. Of course, if you date somebody for years, then you obviously aren’t going to break up with them in a few sentences. But, if you’ve briefly dated someone especially if you’re young, then a quick letter will do.
We do love how Jenny preemptively clears up any worry that Alexander might have for her dating his friends. She lets him know when breaking up with him that she isn’t interested in his friends. We do hope that she’s staying true to what she tells him and isn’t about to go behind his back. That would just be a little much considering that she already dumped him.
That "New Film"
Oh man, now this is a pretty cruel move to pull. One person asks the other if they’ve heard of a movie called “other people.” So of course, person #2 naturally thinks that person #1 is going to ask them to go see this new movie. They probably already start to imagine the romantic evening they’re going to have, huddled together in the dark theater… are they going to kiss or not going to kiss... But then, out of nowhere, person #1 says that what they want to see is other people, and they aren’t talking about a movie.
As clever as the message is, it is a pretty low move to pull and we feel sorry for the person who received this message. Kids, don’t try this at home. As for person #2, hopefully, their future involves somebody who will be kinder to them.
Breaking up with somebody is no easy thing to do. Sometimes, people scramble to find the words of somebody else, like their favorite superhero, to express the way that they’re feeling. Although we are all for quoting celebrities or superheros, we think that using somebody else’s words in the case of a breakup, especially of a fictional character, is pretty low.
The clever part here is that the person being broken up with understood the reference. Perhaps what brought this couple together in the first place was their shared love of superheroes. We just hope that the person being dumped came up with his own clever lines later on in the conversation to get back at his girlfriend.
The Extreme Break Up
A lot of people try to be super nice when breaking up with somebody. After all, we are talking about human emotions which are so raw and can absolutely tear someone to shreds. On the other hand, there are people who literally want to tear their significant others apart for the hurt that they’ve caused them. Well, this boy wanted nothing more to do with Valerie and was willing to go to extreme measures to guarantee that. He drew a very graphic image to illustrate to Valerie just how far he was willing to go to make sure that he would never have to face her again. We hope that Valerie didn’t see this note, because somebody of her young age is bound to be frightened and have nightmares.
As for this little boy who wrote this note, we sure hope that his parents saw it and are taking the necessary measures to find this boy some child therapy.
How Can You Be So Heartless?
We don’t know why so many people must break up with their S.O. in a public manner, but this girl decided to announce publicly to her significant other, Dan that she was leaving him for Gary. We aren’t even sure what Dan did wrong and if he deserves this sort of treatment. To add even more hurt to the situation, Laura did it on Valentine’s Day.
That would really suck if Dan had a really nice romantic evening planned for the two of them. And to send him back to his parents’ home, now that’s just brutal. Seems like she didn’t really give him much say in the matter.
