    I would definitely have to say in person if possible, at least over the phone. We are adults it would be the mature thing to do.

    Definitely in person.  I think breaking up with someone over the phone or via email or text is just plain rude and insensitive.  I will never to do to anyone, so I hope nobody does it to me.

    Face to face is always the best way to go, I think it is more respectful of the other person!

    Personally, I would prefer to break up in person. A text, mail or phone might sound too insensitive. Be gentle, breaking up is not so easy. The person at the other end may run out of emotions.

    There's a preference?

    I guess "in person" might show the person had some respect for the other.  But it would depend upon the situation.

    If you really wanted to be mean about it I suppose a text message would be best.

    It doesn't matter.

    We don't have a say in how people dump us!
    That would be the ultimate controlling demand.
    The person doing the dumping gets to pick how and when.
    Your responsibilty is to accept it and move on towards healing.

    If someone doesn't want to be with you hearing it in person is not going to make you feel any better about having your heart broken. "Closure is overrated" It's like asking to be kicked or slapped as they walk out the door. You don't need the drama!

    The very reason your ex is leaving you could be the same reason Ms/Mr Right falls madly in love with you.

    All you can do is continue to (be yourself) and let the chips fall where they may. Ultmately we are looking for someone who loves and adores us for who we are.

    It's disrespectful to break up over text, but too dramatic to do it in person in my opinion. So breaking up over the phone is easiest for me. Especially of it's one of those toxic codependent relationships that you have trouble letting go of.
