Long distance relationships are hard but breaking up is harder. Yeah you don’t have to look the person in the eyes and basically say what we had wasn’t good enough for me, but you also send the message that you are too much of a bitch to actually say it in person.
I never broke up with a person through text message, phone call or anything besides in person, looking them in the eyes. I have been broken up with through text (on valentines day no less) and through phone calls and through any means possible besides face to face so I know how it makes a person feel. It’s like you aren’t even worth it to the other person, like you don’t even matter enough to have one last conversation.
But long distance relationships make that option almost entirely impossible. You can’t call up the other person and say hey we need to talk lets have dinner or hey I need to talk to you, lets hang out. We were four hours away and you just can’t pick up the phone and have the other person there. So you are left with the shitty impersonal and just downright mean ways to break up with someone.
And even if the situation sucks, you still end up looking like the bitch because you broke up with your boyfriend through the phone.
