breakup stories

Anyone got any breakup stories?

When I was in college a friend and I both had our boyfriends dump us the weekend before VAlentine's Day. We spent Valentine's day complaining about their pizz poor timing and we ate an entire container of Edy's mint chocolate chip icecream for supper.

One of my nieces hates Valentine's day to this day. Her boyfriend broke up with her on Valentine's day. Years and a divorce later they got back together, are married and expecting a child.

Re: breakup stories

A college boyfriend broke up with me one Friday afternoon. He called Saturday to see if I wanted to get back together. Stupid me... I did. Turns out that he broke up with me because he had a date with another girl that Friday night. Fast forward 3 years to find me breaking off our engagement because I found out he had been dating other women behind my back. Surprise, surprise.

Re: breakup stories

. This was not my proudest moment.

When ex and I were splitting, he asked if there was anything he could do to help me get over it. I told him he could drop dead.

That's a good one!

I had a boyfriend in high school and the first year of college. We had been good friends first. He called one morning to talk to me. My DM got very excited because she thought he was going to propose. He didn't. He wanted to break up.

It was okay. He was just a nice guy at a bad spot in his life. We weren't really meant to be gf/bf. I ended up working with his next girlfriend and she asked me a lot of questions trying to determine if he was telling her the truth about us. I would just answer, "Whatever he says, I will swear to. You don't even have to tell me what he said." She hated that. They didn't last too long.

He and I remained friends until we lost touch. We're still friends on FB, though.

Re: breakup stories

In college I had a boyfriend breakup with me (in hindsight I was too clingy)

I listened to a lot of Pink Floyd "The Wall" ... just certain songs though

Re: breakup stories

I do it the easy way... I just never bothered to contact them again. No notes, no phone calls, no messages... nothing... Leave em' hanging.

Just like asking a girl out. I'd ask and if they said no... Okay... No means no. I would go ask another one. Eventually one would say yes. Women are like shopping for produce at the grocery store... Check it out closely, squeeze it a couple of times and if it's good... Put it in your cart. If not, toss it back in the bin - someone will take it eventually.

Just kidding.

Re: breakup stories

Once upon a time. Dated a guy on and off for 3 years. He was unique, weird, aloof and just a typical Aquarius artist. I was looking to get married and wanted to know where he was at. Never gave me a solid answer and it was hard to understand him. I got sick and tired of his delayed reaction. Gave him a timeline and all of a sudden we're looking for home for us. Super excited and happy and thought he was going to pull the trigger. Thought he had high expectations and he wanted to be closer to his mother.... Suddenly, I realized no one single home we looked at was good enough. I got sick of it. Broke it off. Found out later from my close friend after talking with him that he didn't want to buy the home because he thought the world was going to end in 2012. Mayan calendar says......
Whats the point of buying a home if he can travel with me?
That is crazy. LOL!

The fact that he didn't share this information with you was a big, red flag. Not marrying him was a good choice!

Re: breakup stories

Totally agree! During that time, it was the biggest betrayal because I was never told and he wasted my time.

If it wasn't for that incident, I wouldn't have met my husband.

Happily married to a great man now. =)
