break up quotes and sayings...
break up quotes and sayings...


Why don't you love me
The way I loved you
It feels so crazy
Cause I dunno
What I did to you
If you're gonna hurt me
Then do it quickly
Cause I'm tired of cryin'
If you don't wanna
Stick around
Then, baby
Forget about me

-Forget about Me - Little Bit


Well, I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
I should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

-Almost Lover by A Fine Frenzy


Let me be the one to break it up
So you won't have to make excuses
We don't need to find a set up where
Someone wins and someone loses
We just have to say our love was true
But has now become a lie
So I'm tellin' you I love you one last time
And goodby

-Let Me be the One by Jimmy Bondoc


Break up quotes from songs

So you love music? I do, too. Music sucks for the broken heart. But these break up quotes from songs really make sense.


You might be a big fish
In a little pond
Doesn't mean you've won
'Cause along may come
A bigger one
And you'll be lost

Every river that you tried to cross
Every gun you ever held went off
And I'm just waiting till the firing starts

And I'm just waiting till the shine wears off

-Lost by Coldplay


It's been months
And for some reason I just
(can't get over us)
And I'm stronger than this
(enough is enough)
No more walking round
With my head down
I'm so over being blue
Crying over you

-So Sick by Neyo


I'm gonna smile, cause I want to make you happy
Laugh, so you can't see me cry
I'm gonna let you go in style
And even if it kills me
I'm gonna smile

-Smile by Lone Star


Break up quotes from movies and shows

These are break up quotes and sayings from famous movies and tv shows. Enjoy!


Quotes from the Twilight Saga: New Moon, when Edward kinda breaks up with Bella.


Bella: Okay, I’ll come with you.

Edward: Bella, I don't want you to come with me.

Bella: You… don't… want me?

Edward: No.

Bella: Well, that changes things.

Edward: Of course, I'll always love you… in a way. But what happened the other night made me realize that it's time for a change. Because I'm… tired of pretending to be something I'm not, Bella. I am not human. I've let this go on much too long, and I'm sorry for that.

Bella: Don’t. Don't do this

Edward: You're not good for me, Bella.

Bella: If… that's what you want.



"Time wounds all heals.” From Ally McBeal



“I can’t talk to you anymore, it’s not that I am mad at you, it’s just that when I talk to you I realize how much I love you and when I realize how much I love you, I realize I can’t have you and that makes me love you even more.”- unknown


“I love you Lucas, and I probably always will, but we go days without having a meaningful conversation. And I used to miss you so much when that happened but it never seemed like you missed me. And I guess because of it I stopped missing you. I mean look at today, there was a horrible accident and you haven't even called me...it shouldn't be like this, Luke. I'm sorry. I can't do this anymore.” - Brooke breaks up with Lucas from One Tree Hill


Break up quotes from books

Our story has three parts: a beginning, a middle, and an end. And although this is the way all stories unfold, I still can't believe that ours didn't go on forever."
Nicholas Sparks (Dear John)

"Anyone who is in love is making love the whole time, even when they're not. When two bodies meet, it is just the cup overflowing. They can stay together for hours, even days. They begin the dance one day and finish it the next, or--such is the pleasure they experience--they may never finish it. No eleven minutes for them."
Paulo Coelho (Eleven Minutes)


Break up quotes and sayings - Positive

These are kinda serious types of break up and breaking up quotes and sayings that are positive. Read on and enjoy.


“If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they're yours; if they don't they never were.” by Richard Bach


"Trying to forget someone you love is like trying to remember someone you never knew."


"‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.”—Alfred Lord Tennyson


"Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it’s better to leave them broken than try to hurt yourself putting it back together."


"If someone you love hurts you cry a river, build a bridge, and get over it."

Funny break up quotes

"Everyone tells me I should forget about you, you don’t deserve me. They’re right, you don’t deserve me, but I deserve you."

“If you’re going through hell, keep going.”

"Someone should sue Disney for planting the ideas in little kids heads that every girl has a prince and everything ends up happily ever after."

"The good thing about breaking up is that you have nothing else to lose."


Break up quotes and sayings for Facebook

"I don’t miss him, I miss who I thought he was."

"I just broke up with someone and the last thing she said to me was “You’ll never find anyone like me again!” I’m thinking, “I should hope not! If I don’t want you, why would I want someone like you."

-and who says we need quotes to break up in Facebook? LOL

Break up quotes for letting go

The art of letting go…My most hated kind of art LOL


“Some people think that it’s holding on that makes one strong; sometimes it’s letting go.”

"And when you begin to miss me, don't forget it was you who let me go."

"I can’t shake these feelings for you, I try so damn hard, but they won’t go away."


Break up quotes for moving on.. (but can't seem to move on?)

Ok so, we break up, move on or make up…these are break up quotes and sayings about moving on and moving on who can’t still seem to move on. Weh!


"I don’t want to keep being the girl that keeps crying about the same things."

"Just give me time and I’ll get over you."

"You have to forgive to forget, and forget, to feel again.”

"It’s hard to tell your mind to stop loving someone when your heart still does."

"I wonder, when you look into my eyes and watch my heart shatter, does it break your heart too, even crack it a little?"

“There’s this place in me where your fingertips still rest…your kisses still linger and your whispers softly echo…It’s a place where a part of you will forever be a part of me.” by Gretchen Kemp

"So I guess I have some guys that would like a chance with me, but why do I say no, why do I not give them a chance, oh yeah because every time I even think of someone else, my thoughts are interrupted by thoughts of you."

I want to cry, really I do but I guess I just don't want to give you the satisfaction of knowing that you hurt me... once again. -Allison Mosher


Break up quotes from celebrities

“Breaking up is a natural evolution when you try to figure out what you want in life. If you’re with an individual who isn’t moving in the same direction and at the same rate that you are, it ain’t going to work.”—Usher

“I’m not sure what the future holds but I do know that I’m going to be positive and not wake up feeling desperate. As my dad said ‘Nic, it is what it is, it’s not what it should have been, not what it could have been, it is what it is’.”—Nicole Kidman


Most used break up lines

It’s not you, it’s me…

I’m sorry but this is not working anymore…

I need some space and time to find myself…

We’re better off as friends…

      Good for you. That guy sounds like he never really did love you for betraying and cheating on you you twice. You deserve the best in the world, not that guy who would only make you cry. My advice is just enjoy your life and rediscover your self and get back to your passions. One day your Prince would come and when you met him, stick to him and never let him go. Cheers!

      Move on and discover more yourself. Get back to your hobbies and passion. Grow your career too. That way you will rediscover your self better and your new likes and old likes, connect with new people and reconnect with old ones..

      Don't grieve and don't stress. Life is too short to waste it to someone who don't even think about you for one second

      i really like your quotes. I dated this guy but he wanted to,"take a break for a while" i knew where this was heading so i did what he asked and broke up with him. he tricked me into being the one to end it but what he didn't know was that even though i loved him i would rather be with someone who wanted to be with me enough to be honest to me than lie and make excuses for why we don't work out. Relations ships go both ways it takes both to make it work. I guess he didn't love me enough to make it work.

      I think wala. If it's true love, di ka nya matitiis na di makita or makausap. That's so immature kind of love if he's ignoring you.

      Masakit talaga ang iwanan ng mahal mo.Pero kailangan tanggapin.Masaktan ka lang pag pinilit mo pa siyang ipaglaban.If you love that person set her/him free. Pg bumalik siya sayo ikaw ang mahal niya.Kaya ako hihintayin ko nalang ang tamang tao para sakin. Pero kung di man siya dumating ok lang atleast nag hintay ako.

      Great collections of quotes here, some of them I am not familiar with at all. I have a good one by Marilyn Monroe:

      "I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."

      — Marilyn Monroe

      Hello Fehl, a great selection of break up lines and quotes. Always handy for dumping someone! LOL! Oooh! That is bad! I think breaking up is always hard, and the Facebook thing is making me smile. Have never experienced a break up via internet ever. I pity anyone who has to undergo that, like that kid in the show South Park where all his Facebook friends desert him. Heh! It was funny yet sad.

      A great selection of lovely quotes, or sad ones, depending on your position.

      Ps. wondering why the redacted facebook and failbook parts of screen prints were included. Jeez, were these one's you have on those networks? Sorry to read, if so! I hope your day is good, moi friend. Cheers! XO
