Not surprisingly so, Digital Dumping is on the rise. Seems like a ton of people are taking the easy, cowardly way out and dumping their significant other via the internet.

"Over one third of 2,000 people polled (34 per cent) said they had ended a relationship by email, 13 per cent had changed their status on Facebook without telling their partners and six per cent had released the news unilaterally on Twitter".

Ok I understand that it's not easy to break up with someone face to face but I think it's the right thing to do, dumping on Facebook or Myspace I think is atrocious, hurtful and well just a cowardly thing to do. It's a sign of the times I suppose and I'm sure within the next several years it will be a lot more common than it is now.

So what do you think? Do you think this is ok? Have you broke up with someone like this, would you ever? Or are you one who thinks doing it face to face, or at least over the phone is the only way to go.

Re: Digital Dumping On The Rise?

I think it all depends on how you met. If you met online, never really went out per say then although it might not be the greatest way its more acceptable. That is if the majority of your relationship is spent chatting online. If your relationship is spent more on the phone with each other then over the phone is ok.

However if you are dating spending time with each other they you owe them to do it in person. Letting them know via facebook or myspace via a post or status change is not only wrong but the imature.

Re: Digital Dumping On The Rise?

I have experiance in this area Laughing

I met this girl on Myspace that livedonly 20 minutes away from me so we met up and went out to a movie and everything was great we dated for about three weeks then I found out about all her lies ! I met up with her to confront her but was not willing to listen to what I had to say ! I tried to break up on the phone she ignored it !
For a second I thought she was going to stalk me , so I ended up writing her a long letter on myspace telling her I wanted nothing to do with her and her lies and blocked her from messaging me back ! I did tell her if she wanted to talk about it she could call but that was the end !

So I would say if I didn't have this experiance I would have never done that , but when you meet a crazy one , sometimes its better that way !
