No matter what everyone else says, it is inevitable that one of the most challenging situations that a person could go through is the breakup. Some people are taken by surprise when it happens, while others know that it is bound to happen. Some breakups, however, are straight brutal, and you would think that it came from hell. This list is composed of said breakups. They may seem ruthless, but you got to give credit where its due and admit that some of them are quite hilarious.
This Message Will Surely Not Fall On Deaf Ears
Thinking straight is hard when you are hungry. Whoever wrote this message wanted their message to be clear, I mean, how can someone even ignore a delicious box of pizza? You can be sure that whoever would receive this box of pizza will inevitably read the message written on the box. Whoever did this probably tried their best to give a bit of comfort to their ex by making them eat the pain away?
Whoever came up with the idea of saying things at the same time certainly made a terrible idea. After seeing this, you just know for sure that things will be very awkward for the two of them. Jacob only wanted to take their relationship to a whole new level, but the girl sadly does not feel the same, and we certainly feel sorry for Jacob. Meeting each other is probably unbearable for both due to how awkward it got, but who knows? Maybe it does not matter to the person who just wants to break up.
The Prenup Should Have Included The Dog
We are not sure if Paul has seen the message nor even dared to go back to this café. But we can be sure on one thing – Paul should have included his dog in their prenup photo. We feel sorry for Paul because he now has to live his life missing his dog and his wife! We can only hope that there are not a lot of Pauls with a wife and a dog in town because this message will put them off.
The Whole Town Knows
If there is one way to describe this whole situation, it would probably be the old English proverb that says, “Hell hath no fury as a woman scorned”. For sure, Steven understood the meaning of that proverb by now. Why did you even cheat on your wife, Steven? Being with a woman for so long might get you bored, but this does not justify what you did! Being with another woman may be all fun and games, but Steven should have seen this coming. This makes Steven a single man, losing a lot of money while being the talk of the town.
Joke Gone Wrong
Jokes are often a good way to help lighten up a tough situation, but using it to soften the blow of a breakup? Probably not a good idea. The joke may seem funny if you hear it used on someone, but it obviously would not be funny anymore if it happens to you. It is not much of a surprise to think why the now-single person had a hard time believing that joke, and we have no idea how the person coped after receiving the supposed “joke.” If one thing is certain, breakup jokes are not funny when it is used to break up and is done through text.
Not Cool, Dave…
Dave messed up here. Being unfaithful to your wife and kids is a bad move. He should have thought more about the consequences of his actions because not only did he become the town’s laughingstock, he also lost his wife, his kids, and has no money in the bank! The next time he ever gets married, he should think a lot more about the consequences when deciding to have another woman by his side.
There is this belief that says wishing at exactly 11:11 will have their wish granted. A lot of people have done this, and if this happened to you, you surely will do it again! Sadly, one of the two participants in this conversation surely had a terrible experience in their 11:11 wish. The person’s wish is simply a wish of love and care for their significant other, while the other half only wanted to break it off. We can only wish that the person who was broken up with gets the happy ending that they wanted.
Sometimes Your Effort Is Not Enough
Saying Keenen is hurt by this message is surely an understatement. He did a lot of stuff to make her happy by making her laugh, and she was not impressed at all? What makes the whole thing worse is that the very reason she wants to break up with Keenen is the fact that he is just doing his best! We must remember that we cannot make everyone happy, and our efforts do not work all the time. We hope that Keenan finds someone who will appreciate his efforts.
That’s What I Want
Breaking up with someone is a hard thing to do, but if you are the one that will break it off, be certain that that is what you want to do and be firm with your decision. The reason being is that your soon-to-be-ex is probably going to try and manipulate by making you change your mind in whatever way they want, just like the text below. Fortunately, the person breaking it off saw through it and stood their ground. You have to be firm if you want to break up with someone.
That’s One Really Interesting Yard Sale!
The sign “all must go” at a garage sale certainly catches everyone’s attention because it means that they can bargain and ask for a discount like no other! You can even bargain for as low as $5 for something that costs $100! In this case, however, things are a bit different. The wife may feel disheartened about this, but cheating is something she shouldn’t have done in the first place! You can be certain that their marriage is done for and is executed hilariously.
It’s Not What You Think…
The acronym “ily” is usually used by people to say “I love you”, but it does not seem to be the case here. Someone decided to use “ily” for the words “I’m leaving you,” and this definitely hurts the unlucky fellow who received this “ily”. This is why it is essential for lovers to have communication to understand each and other and what their words mean. This can be an example as to why they probably did not work out.
Something Sweet To Counteract The Bitterness
This is a breakup that you can consider to be bittersweet. Other people prefer to hear the harsh words in front of them, but in some cases, a lovely, sweet cake to help sweeten the situation can slightly improve the situation. But this does not change the fact that this is a breakup. A breakup is a breakup no matter what you call it. It will always be painful. It is alright to cry and release all your pain because no matter how we view it, being dumped with a cake is quite harsh. The cake does not even have any effort put into it!
Your Focus Is Way Off
Being good at math is not something that everyone can do it should not even be a cause of a relationship to end! Although math does not seem like a big deal, having proper knowledge of English, grammar, and correct spelling is essential for communication, especially in romantic relationships! Ron may have thought that his math skills are the reason for the breakup, but we believe that it is because of his communication skills.
Be Careful Who You Trust
Imagine you are driving on the road, just minding your own business, then you see signs that could be the best surprise of your life. But the further you go, the more you realize that what you thought maybe the best surprise of your life is the worst surprise of your life! To make it even worse, she was only given six days to move out and look for a place to live in! Imagine how much of a shock this is for her. This is precisely why people have trust issues. You just don’t know how people will hurt you.
Denial At Its Best
The boyfriend indeed loves his girlfriend so much. So in love, in fact, that he could not process the fact that she was breaking up with him! He is in a state of denial, and it is tough for him to process what is happening. We can be confident with one thing though, once he realizes what happens, he will undoubtedly be hit with grim reality and recognize that his ex-girlfriend was already shouting through text.
Biggest Breakup Combo
At first, it may seem like you can get away with the terrible things you have done behind your partner’s back, but this one shows that all your lies and terrible things that you try to hide will all catch up and haunt you. We feel sorry for the person who wrote this note because this took a lot of courage and guts to write this. The woman who received this note definitely should think deeply about her actions because cheating on someone in different ways is a betrayal on a whole new level.
When Hints Are Not Enough
Some people would need a lot more hints for them to understand what you mean. In this instance, it is evident that the other party does not understand the point and also does not want to break up. It also means that they still have a lot of feelings for the person breaking up, and with them not getting the point of the messages, it makes them look slow and desperate! No one wants people to think that they are slow, which is why you should always do your best to be able to read between the lines.
Reflect On Things
Whenever you go to the bathroom, you usually do not expect to see nor experience anything exciting. You may feel a bit refreshed after using the restroom, but certainly not like this. Seeing that your partner broke up with you through a message on the mirror will surely put you in a wrong spot. Not only will you have to cope that you are all alone again, but you also have to clean up the mess in the mirror!
You Need To Get It Together
Recently, children are “dating” earlier than before. Hugs and light pecks might be something they sometimes do, but just like any relationship, talking is obviously necessary to keep the relationship going, and Rachel surely knows this best. Seeing how cold Shawn has been to her, can you even blame her? Three months is a long time for someone to avoid talking to you, and although they are young, Rachel certainly gave Shawn a bit of good advice on life.
Nothing Like A Game To Help You Through A Breakup
Scavenger hunt might be an excellent way to ease up the pain of a breakup! The girl who wrote this note found out that the guy has been seeing someone else through Facebook. Unfortunately for him, he must now do a scavenger hunt to hunt various pieces of his life literally. We can only hope that he remembers the small details of his relationship with his ex-girlfriend so he might find his things back. Luckily for him, his ex-girlfriend did not break any of his stuff.
The Whole World Knows
Breakups will always be hard to handle, but seeing your significant other break up with you through social media? That is one of the hardest and most challenging ways to deal with it. To make things worse, other people will know about the breakup, and you would not know about it unless you log onto your account! We don’t know what happened between them for the guy to end their relationship publicly, but we hope they can straighten things out even though it is quite unlikely to happen.
With Deep Regret
You may think that starting a breakup letter with sweet words and compliments is a good idea, but we can tell you it is not. The poor woman who received this note probably believed that they just received a romantic love note, only to realize that it is a breakup letter. This is certainly not the best feeling in the world. Whatever happened between them, Erin lost her partner that day. We hope that she finds someone better.
Hopefully, He Saw This
What do you think is worse? Getting dumped through a social media platform? Or via newspaper? We cannot deny that both are horrible ways to find out that you are getting left. Kevin Maxey is a bit unfortunate. His ex went through the trouble of getting an ad on the newspaper to declare that their relationship is done and over. We can only assume that Kevin reads the paper because of what his ex did, but if he missed it, it will undoubtedly be awkward if he visits his ex’s house.
It’s Not You, It’s Me
Breakup letters are not only applicable to romantic relationships. For example, this woman here chose to resign from her workplace by writing a breakup letter to the burger restaurant named Five Guys. This letter is her hilarious yet respectful way of informing her boss that she wants to quit. It certainly is better to leave a job in your own will rather than getting fired. We can only guess that she has a good relationship with her boss and everyone in the place because this letter would have been awkward if she wasn’t.
What you can see in the picture is an impressing action from the woman who did this. Others would have used a marker and a massive piece of paper or a box, but she had a professional sign made! Now everyone knows why she moved out. We can be sure that the neighbors won’t be inviting her now ex-husband to the barbeques and parties due to his infidelity, but she might still be invited!
Thanks For The (Imaginary) Memories
We can clearly say that Greg did not have any close relationship with this girl he refers to as “Dr. Who Girl.” You might think that this is quite harsh, but it is quite funny once you realize that everything in here only happened in Greg’s imagination. Everything from getting married until divorce, you can’t deny the fact that this is quite a hilarious scene in his mind. The fact that Greg does not even want to do it in real life makes it even more fun!
While I’m At It….
The kid who wrote this must have thought that even though he would be breaking up with her, he might as well greet her for their one-month “anniversary.” We wish that Delauren will learn that it is kind of harsh to break up with someone on your anniversary through a note that is not a good idea. But we can appreciate the fact that he was considerate enough to let Krystal know what he was doing.
Gone Too Far To Back Out
If you are trying to do this to your partner, you should check out your spelling and make sure that everything you typed in your message is perfect so that you would not get caught. He probably panicked with the news and rushed typing the message, thus making him misspell the word “You.” He did not even bother to explain himself and try to patch things out but just carried on with his plan.
Whenever you cheat on people, you are bound always to be caught. The sign may not state who of the two girlfriends discovered first, but you can see that the two of them found each other and set aside their differences to plan their revenge by doing this to him. They hated Steve’s guts in cheating on them and playing them at the same time. Steve now has no girlfriends and may never get a new one because everyone knows what he has done.
The Never-ending List
Whatever the reason may be, it will never feel good to be dumped by your partner—but seeing a long list of various reasons as to why your significant one wants to break it off with you? Brutal. But with the list citing a lot of bad habits done by the receiver of the note, you can’t blame the person who wrote it. It must have been unbearable to remember every single wrong thing that has been done to you and write it in a note so that you can say why you want to break up. Let’s hope that the receiver of the message learned from this and changed themselves for the better.
No One Has To Know
At first glance, you may perceive this breakup letter as somewhat sweet even though you know that this will break someone’s heart. The writer wanted to ease up the pain that they may cause by writing sweet words and phrased his letter carefully. It may seem as sincere, but the postscript makes it look like nothing but an act. The words “No one has to know we were going together in the first place” show that the writer doesn’t want people to think that “they” even happened, which is sad.
So Hard To Put Into Words
The guy wrote this had the decency to own up the fact that he has difficulties in expressing himself through words, which is why he did not write anything negative. But he did not even say anything either. He just said that he wanted to break up, drew himself on a giraffe, and that’s it! Not even any justification as to why he wanted to break up. We would have no idea if he did this just to make his ex feel a bit better with the situation because if he did, he has many more to learn about life and relationships.
Adding Insult To Injury
It is a mystery as to why a lot of people prefer to end their relationships publicly rather than do it privately. From the looks of it, Dan did not do anything wrong but was dumped by his girlfriend for someone else named Gary. To add insult to the injury, she also went out of her way to bring his belongings to his parent’s house, which means he was again getting kicked out of the house without any prior notice. Making it even worse, he had to deal with it publicly on Valentine’s day. We can only hope that he finds someone better next time.
Too Brutal For Comfort
Most of the time, people try to be friendly and comforting whenever they break up with someone. In this case, though, the man who made this note was not in a good mood when he wrote this. We can’t of any other explanation as to why he made a note saying, “Dear Valerie get out of my life” accompanied by a graphic drawing depicting his girlfriend being beheaded with an ax. We can only hope that Valerie did not see this scathing letter and finds someone who will respect her. And to whoever made the note, we hope that he got some help.
Straight To The Point
Sometimes, a short, simple note is enough and probably better than a long letter filled with colorful, flowery words. You can expect something more from someone you have been with for years, but middle schoolers? This is probably the most you can get. We applaud Jenny for being clear with her statement that she does not want to date any of Alexander’s friends and hope that she stands firm with her words.
The Reference Wasn’t Lost
Breaking it off with someone is a task that no matter who you are, it will always be hard to do. This leads to people quoting their favorite movie, song, comic book, etc. when trying to dump someone. To break up with someone by quoting lines from famous movies is quite common, but you have to be somewhat cruel and unfeeling to do this. This, however, is quite impressing due to the receiver of the note being able to see the Batman reference in the breakup message. The receiver may have sent an equally eloquent message, but we wouldn’t know.
A “New Movie”
You can consider this to be a somewhat humorous way to break up with someone. The receiver of the message expected to be invited out on a movie date but ended up being single. We are also unsure if the receiver of the message even got the meaning of the message, making it worse when the realization kicks in. There isn’t a lot of examples to top up a breakup that you didn’t expect, and seeing it done through text is undoubtedly worse. We can only hope that the receiver will meet someone who would take them into movie dates.
A Better Trick
This could be a funny joke made by the couple with a hilarious sense of humor. If this is nothing but a joke, then we can all agree that the girl won this round. But if it is real? Then the girl’s life turned for the worse since she was dumped while being pregnant. Being discarded while pregnant surely is something terrible for any woman to experience, but we hope that the two of them talked things over for the child’s sake.
You Should Ask For A Divorce
This is a mess! The guy who sent the message thought that he sent his letter to his side chick but made the terrible mistake of sending the message to his wife. His wife seemed to be relieved after learning that the message was not meant for her, but when she realizes that she was being cheated on, you can be sure that things took a messy turn. Did the couple talk and tried to patch things up? We can only guess.
Funny But Not Budging
You can see that their relationship is done. You can see that the person in the image does not want to give the other person any more chance. The breakup message turned out to be quite funny though due to autocorrect being there to mess things up as always. We can only guess as to how terrible their relationship might have been seeing that the person can make such jokes despite the situation.
