Sure, I've been dumped over an email -- when I was 18. We were both young and I forgave him because... well, we were 100% incompatible and fought all the time.
I met a new guy and we dated for a few months and I relished the fact that maybe he and I were in many, many ways 'perfect' for each other. Not one single fight, not one single tear. Until about a month ago, out of the blue, he decided (over the internet) he didn't want to be in a relationship anymore. I was upset about it, but a couple days later, he came by crying and apologizing, saying that he wanted me back and that he cared for me deeply. Okay, okay. I took him back, strike one.
Everything was perfect after that, yet again. We went to some gardens, the movies, dinner, camping... we had so much fun together. But, c'est la vie, he had to go back to work, which consists of 4 weeks on the gulf, pulling barges to and fro. When he left, I made him promise that he wouldn't try that shit on me again... because things were literally as good as they could be between us since that incident. He goes to work and 4 weeks later, he comes back.
I gained a new job and recently decided to go back to school to finish my degree for elementary education... things were great the first day we saw each other. That day, we had made plans to go on a double date with my sister and her girlfriend. I had to work the next morning, but since we made plans to go to the movies at 5ish, to meet me at around 3 or 3:30, so that would give me plenty of time to get ready. He agreed.
The next day, I get off of work, thinking everything was fine and dandy. I rush to the bathroom to shower and then I go get ready... and 3 passes... 3:30 passes. I wonder where he is. So I hop online. He usually sends me a message when he's having car troubles or whatever. Only to find that he sends me this extremely long message about how we're not going to work out and blah blah blah
So, of course I was pissed off. A) For not telling me the night before that he wanted to end things, and B) For sending so many mixed signals. I told him he was bi-polar, where he continued to call me a moron, an idiot and other things. So I was fed up. Then I decided to call him a coward, because people who dump people online are exactly that. He then proceeded to call me a bitch, when I had more than a right to be angry. Of course, I'm angry! This is the second time he'd done it and he promised he wouldn't do it again.
The breakup doesn't bother me, no. I promised myself that I wouldn't get worked up if he DID decide to dump me again. And I didn't. But the fact that he called me a bitch for being rightfully angry, the FIRST time I'd EVER been angry at him. The fact that I didn't stoop so low to call him a dickhead or an asshole tells me that I was the better person in the situation. Tell me, people: should 23 year old men really act like this? Or should I go for someone even older than that? Seems like I need to, because I tend to date men who don't have a clear set of balls between their legs.Have you ever been dumped over the Internet or a text message?
