26 Truly Awful Breakup Stories That Will Put You In A Rage


Every single one of these should get their own movies, tbh.

Most breakups are really
tough, regardless of the circumstances. But some stories just
really take the cake in the most awkward/horrible/worst
breakup category.

So we asked the BuzzFeed Community to
share their most
horrendous breakup stories, and let me tell you, the results
were more appalling then I could have imagined.

So sit back, relax, and prepare to never want to be in a
relationship ever again.

1. The stick figure artist:

“My boyfriend met me at Wagamama for lunch, and while we were waiting
for our orders, I noticed him scribbling something on a
napkin. He sometimes scribbled me funny/cute notes. With a
shy smile, he slid the napkin across the table to me. I
smiled back until I realized that the note read: ‘I really
love you, but not that much. Can we be friends with
benefits??’ And next to the writing was a sketch of a stick
figure with an erection, standing next to a smiling stick
figure with boobs.

Before I could react, he mumbled, ‘be right back,’ and walked
out of the restaurant with his corduroy jacket still on his
seat. It took me around 40 minutes to realize he wasn’t
coming back. About four days later, he texted saying, ‘I’m
horny. Can I come over?’ Followed by, ‘Too soon?’ Needless to
say, I blocked his number.”

2. The divorce-by-text:

After being married for four years, I got a text
message from my ex saying, ‘I think we rushed into things.’
Oh, OKAY. Thanks for letting me know now?!”


3. Roadkill and flowers:

“My sister was on the verge of getting married to this guy,
when she found out that he’d had another fiancé in a
neighboring country during the entire two years they were
together. When my sister ended things, he pleaded with her to
reconsider, telling her that she was the only one he loved.

After she refused and turned him away, dead birds started
popping up on our doorstep every day for two weeks.
weren’t taxidermy birds. They were roadkill birds. The sick
part was he also sent her flowers at the office every day for
two weeks, as well.”


4. The good deed, gone wrong:

“For background, this happened when I was in 12th grade and
in a two-year relationship. My boyfriend’s mother was dying,
so he wanted to go back to Indiana to be with his family. He
was super close to her so I encouraged him to go be with her
and transfer to a community college near her so they could
spend her final few months together. While there, he
apparently got a waitress pregnant, and married her on my
He didn’t even tell me, his best friend did.”

5. We are never, ever, getting back

“My ex-girlfriend and I️ dated for two years, and lived
together for a little over one. She broke up with me and
kicked me out of my home, all while blasting ‘We Are Never Ever Getting
Back Together,’ by Taylor Swift, and sending me text
messages from the upstairs bedroom that I️ needed to leave.
The kicker: We had a pet hedgehog together, that at the
time, was perfectly healthy. After not speaking for two
weeks, she called me up to tell me that he was dead
that I️ needed to take care of the body and cage because he
had been rotting in her room for an entire weekend. Worst.
Breakup. Ever.”


6. See you never:

After three years together, he, out of nowhere, changed
his relationship status to single on Facebook and moved out
of state.
The only reason I found out was because I
logged into Facebook and saw his status changes. I never
ended up hearing from him besides his best friend sending me
a message a few days later that said ‘oh, he says he’s

—Seth Traver, Facebook

7. The haircut conundrum:

“I used to have hair halfway down my back. But about three
years ago, I asked my ex-boyfriend if he’d still like me if I
had a bob. And after he said yes, I decided to do it. I guess
he didn’t think it’d actually happen, because about two
days later he broke up with me since I apparently ~looked
like a boy~ now
. It just so happened to be on Valentine’s
Day, too. What a dick.”


8. The unwarranted birthday

“It was 12:30 a.m., which meant it was 30 minutes into my
birthday. My then boyfriend, AKA the
man-I-thought-I️-was-going-to-marry, was asleep next to me.
So l looked at his phone to see if he was planning a surprise
for me. I’m horrible about wanting to find out
plans/surprises. So I searched my name in his texts (we never
hid our phones from each other or had passcodes) and
proceeded to discover that he had cheated on me three months
earlier and the girl was coming into town next weekend! Happy
birthday to me!


9. The very expensive mistake:

“After I moved away, I paid over $1,000 for my now ex to come
visit me across the country. On the last night of his
eight-day visit, we had dinner, saw a movie, and went back to
our hotel and had sex. Immediately after having sex, he told
me he actually hadn’t been into me for the past year and was
ready to end our relationship. But THEN, had the nerve to
say he still wanted to spend the rest of the night in the
hotel with me, and still wanted a ride to the airport the
next morning.


10. The very public Facebook

“We were in high school and had been dating for six months,
when on my 16th birthday, I logged into Facebook to read all
my birthday messages. And guess what I saw? My boyfriend
had posted on my wall saying that he hoped I had a great
birthday, but that we weren’t going to work out anymore.

Needless to say, I cried all day and spent my 16th birthday
in bed with ice cream and TV.

I learned years later that my dad was so mad when he found
out, that he drove over to my ex’s house and shouted at him
until my ex wet his pants. So, there’s some justice out

11. Parental permission:

“When my boyfriend didn’t show up for our usual date, I️
tried calling and texting him. Finally, he sent me a text
saying, ‘I’m sorry it’s over.’ This came as a surprise since
we spent the entire night before saying ‘I love you’ and
searching for houses together. Cut to me, crying in a Best
Buy parking lot, begging him to stay or at least tell me WHY
he wanted to break up. That’s when he told me he has to go
ask his parents if we could stay together. Yes. He said he
needed to ask his parents.
He then drove off, came back,
and said, “Yeah, they said no.” We were 27 at the time.”


12. The Craigslist sex solicitor:

“My ex-boyfriend logged into his email through my laptop,
which meant I received all of his notifications. Nothing out
of the usual came up for the first few days. But then I
started receiving all of his Craigslist notifications that
showed he was soliciting himself for sex.
When I
confronted him, his explanation was that this method of
cheating/breaking up with me was easier for him emotionally.”


13. The plot twist:

“My ex-boyfriend literally dumped me for my previous


14. The incredibly unconvincing

“After being together for a year, my ex-boyfriend told me
he was gay. But then, the next day, he asked out my FEMALE
best friend.
They’re still together, and I’m obviously
not friends with her anymore.”


15. A very merry Christmas:

“After almost three years of living together, and after just
spending Christmas with each others’ families, my ex decided
he wanted to break up with me while having the ~where do you
see us in five years~ talk. He said he didn’t love me anymore
and that he didn’t feel that we could work things out. Which
I totally understood, even though my heart felt like it was
torn from my body. BUT, he had broken up with me on the first
day of the month, and because he didn’t have anywhere else to
go, we ended up having to live together for that ENTIRE
MONTH while we were broken up. It was the worst month of my


16. A telling STI test:

“I was in high school and got talked into taking an STI test,
even though I was in a monogamous relationship and didn’t
want one. A week later, I was called back into the clinic
and found out that I had chlamydia.
That’s literally how
I found out I was cheated on! To make things worse, when I
confronted him, he freaked out and kept screaming that I had
cheated on him, lol.”


17. Casual PetSmart trip:

“My last ex broke up with me right after I came back from
vacation. He picked me up and we drove around so we could
talk — or so it seemed. He started talking about how I was
too nice, and that he had thought about breaking up with me
through text, but that he thought I deserved a better break
up (and all this other crap). When I looked around, I
realized we had stopped at PetSmart. He was literally
breaking up with me while he was running an errand!


18. An awkwardly formal breakup:

“I got a text from my soon-to-be ex telling me to check my
mailbox. When I went outside, I found that he had left me
a typed letter saying he didn’t love me anymore.
It was
really formal, and super awkward, and I really don’t know why
he couldn’t just have sent me a text instead.”


19. The momma’s boy:

“After SEVEN years together, he ghosted me. About a month
later, I was ‘officially’ dumped via a Facebook message
sent by his MOTHER


20. The Tinder fiasco:

“The day before I left for a two-week trip, my ex-boyfriend
and I were on our way to pick up takeout (that I paid for),
when I took his phone to queue up another song. When I
grabbed his phone, I saw that he had not only downloaded
the Tinder app, but it was also the most recently used app on
his phone
, meaning that he had somehow used it in the
short time between us having sex that morning, and leaving to
pick up the food.

After the initial fight, which included me cursing him out
and crying, I asked why he was on Tinder. His excuse was that
he liked me, but he wanted to see what else was out there in
case there was something better. He thought that with me
going away for two weeks he would be able to explore all
those possibilities!”


21. You’ve got mail:

“I had been dating a guy on-and-off again for about a year,
when he suggested I move into his apartment for a two-week
trial run. I was there for approximately one week, when I
came ‘home’ after making dinner and walking our dogs, to find
that I’d gotten an email from him (he was a police officer
and working the night shift at the time). In the very
detailed, five-paragraph email, he broke up with me, yet
again, with all the reasons why he didn’t want to be with me.

So I packed my stuff, did not burn down his apartment
building, and left with my dog. I couldn’t believe that he
broke up with me via email while he was at work, because he
couldn’t come home and do it face-to-face!

22. An especially unpleasant

“I got broken up with on an airplane, at the beginning of
an incredibly long six-hour fligh
t. We had to sit next to
each other in total awkward silence for the entire rest of
the time.”


23. A FaceTime call to be

“I called my boyfriend to say goodnight, when he suggested we
FaceTime. He then, at 2 a.m., broke up with me during a
five-minute FaceTime conversation, during which he had a girl
in his bedroom the entire time
. We had dated for nearly
three years before that.”


24. Roommate drama:

“My ex and I were together for seven years, when we decided
to move across the county together. We had lived together for
six of those years and I believed that he was ‘the one’. We
even went and designed my engagement ring together so I knew
a proposal was coming. He was going to propose on our
seven-year anniversary, but I found out about it and he
cancelled those plans.

One week later, he slept with some random person he met at a
bar (I had no idea) and was late to our realtor appointment
to buy a house. Just 24 hours after he cheated on me, we put
an offer in together on our dream home. It wasn’t until two
weeks after we moved into that house, that he told me about
the new girl and how we had to break up because he was madly
in love with her. He then proposed the GREAT idea of us
still living together as roommates for a while because he
couldn’t afford the bills on the house by himself.


25. A little too late,

“We found an apartment, and were supposed to move down to
Florida together. But he moved down six weeks before me
because I had to finish school. I guess six weeks was too
long of a wait, because during that time he decided to cheat
on me. It gets worse… he chose to break up with me the
day after I moved all the way down there and had unloaded ALL
of my stuff into the apartment


26. Family matters:

“One day, he texted me saying that he didn’t think it was
going to work out between us. And when I asked him why, he
responded saying, ‘I’m in love with your sister.’ This
guy still texts me once a year asking if I’m single. Wtf.”
