And you thought a Post-It was bad

Thursday, February 21, 2008
Remember the Sex and the City episode when Carrie's boyfriend breaks up with on a post-it note? Classic, classic episode. After watching that, you can't really think that happens in real life. Am I right? Well, let me know tell you that it is completely possible.

Meet my friend K.Lo. She was exclusively dating a guy for a few months. Well, instead of breaking up with her in person over even over the phone, he just stopped calling. Now, no initial red flags were raised because neither are that clingy or talk every 20 minutes via texting, IM or phone. After several texts and phone calls (think like no response in two weeks), she pretty much got the picture that he's no longer interested in dating her. But, picking up the phone isn't that hard to do. Really. How old are you? Oh yes, that's right, you are in your mid-20s, not a horny 15-year-old who had a new "girlfriend" every two weeks. After her anger had past and conversations with her closest friends reminding her that he's the coward not her, she finally heard back from the cowardly lion -- via text. Not even a phone call.

We've all been on the receiving and giving end of a bad break-up. But as we get older, let's try to do it with a little more class and face-to-face communication. I don't think that's too much to ask, do you?

Not only is he a coward, he's not worth her time.

No one deserves to be with someone as inconsiderate as that. Tell your friend she deserves better.

Yes, he was a little immature in his actions.

Allison, I'm happy to see you are calling dumb boys out on their actions. I have a good break up story for you:

A guy I had been dating for a very long time decided he was done with the relationship and broke up with me, on Facebook, on our 5-year anniversary. The best part is he didn't even send me a message, he just clicked the button to "end our facebook relationship." Nice, huh?

I'm speechless.

He deleted his status. I need to come up with a name for that smooth move.

You left us hanging..what did the text message say? And yeah, he sounds like a tool!

I think it's less about what he said (because I cant' remember) and more about how he executed it. If I remember correctly, he wouldn't respond to her phone calls, so she sent him a text and sure enough he responded back to that.
