    Do you think it is ok to break-up a relationship by email?

    Today, many things are communicated by email. Do you think a relationship break-up is acceptable by email, or should it be done in person or by phone where you can hear an actual voice.

    I think the person being broken up with deserves to hear it in person and be able to look the person in the eyes.  Email, letter, phone is really taking the easy way out of a very uncomfortable situation.

      I agree, I know someone this happened to... very dissapointed in this manner of breaking up, when tried to call, other person wouldn't answer. So rude!

    No, unless the person who is initiating the break thinks/feels that the person they are breaking up with won't be able to handle it. But I think a person deserves for someone to have the guts enough to tell them face to face and not through email.

      I guess everyone has their reasons for doing things their that point they aren't trying to be courteous.

    Unfortunately we do not have a say in how someone dumps us!
    A breakup is always done at the comfort level of the person ending the relationship.
    Some people don’t want to get into a long drawn out heated or emotional discussion.
    Others may worry about potential violence. People have been killed by dejected lovers.
    No matter which method they choose the results are the same. (They think their life will be better without us in it.) We have to accept the relationship is over and move on with our lives. It’s a complete waste of our time and energy to get hung up on (how) we were let go. The only person you have control over is yourself. We’re only kidding ourselves when we say it’s all about how they did it. The truth is we never wanted the relationship to end period. Clearly they were not “the one” for us or we’d still be together. Your future lies ahead of you and not behind you. Awhile back I wrote a hub on this subject. … in-General

      True, we don't have control in what other people choose to do, or the manner in which they chose to do it. Thanks for your views.

    No way!!! I think if someone sends a break up email they weren't serious about the relationship anyway. They also may have some fear of telling the boyfriend or girlfriend to their face such as not wanting them to cry or get upset because it may make that person change their mind about breaking up.

      I thought the same thing...not being serious in the first place or not being able to go through with the break up if they actually talked. Thanks.
