Breakups are not at all beautiful. No matter how long you were in the relationship, the breakup will bring a hoard of emotions that are mostly negative.
Back in the days before texting or social media, you could break up with someone and never see them again for the rest of your life. It was so easy!
Now, though, breaking up with someone isn’t always so cut and dry. You might still text your ex, or they might watch your Instagram stories. Do you unfriend them on Facebook? Block them on Snapchat? What if you come across them on Tinder? Relationships in this modern age are kind of a minefield.
In the event that you do decide to text your ex, it can go any number of ways. Most of those ways are bad. If you ever find yourself with a message from your ex in your inbox, we recommend you take inspiration from these incredible responses!
It’s crazy how the end of a relationship also marks the end of communicating as though you were in a relationship, huh?
Just kidding. That’s not crazy, that’s normal.
The bad guy.
You can stop treating people badly.
It’s that easy.
In case you were wondering why I ghosted you. It’s because I am now a ghost.
Weird that I’m the first person you think of when you somehow have a duck to give away, but OK!
I will take it! I love ducks!
Like you do…
Hey, you asked.
After this, I’m going to stick a few pins in a voodoo doll, too.
I don’t know where this person found that magnetic poetry, but I’m going to need my own set ASAP.
You never know when it might come in handy.
Points for creativity.
Sure, you could just eat the food on your plate.
But where is the fun in that?
The No. 1 rule of texting your ex: Never type up a response when a GIF will do quite nicely.
They’re probably not worth the effort.
Break up with someone and then try to get them to do your homework?!
That’s a pretty bold move, my dude. I don’t see it working out very well for you.
This response is so brutal that I’m feeling embarrassed, and I had literally nothing to do with the interaction. Oof.
There’s no coming back from that one.
Ooh, I totally would get back together with you, except I have one million reasons why that would be the most terrible idea in the world.
Maybe next time! (But probably not.)
Imagine feeling comfortable enough to text someone you haven’t dated for at least three years.
At 2:54 in the dang morning!
Let me see…
Oh, what time were you thinking?
Actually, it doesn’t matter. The answer is no, never, not in one million years.
Oh, you said don’t roll my eyes.
I must have misunderstood. What are you going to do about it? Break up with me?
That’s a long shower.
I was in the shower. For a month.
Anyway, what is it that you wanted?
I even changed your photo to something a bit more appropriate.
Not sure what’s so hard to understand about that.
I guess you should stop texting it.
Nah, dude. That’s not a “maybe.”
Nice try, though.
That should clear things up.
Maybe you should save that picture to your phone and look at it every time you feel the need to text me.
Just to me.
Ooof. Another brutal response.
Although I am very curious about why the ex-partner was asking whether they were dead.
Short, simple, and straight to the point.
Be like this person.
I just want to make sure you noticed that I blocked you on Facebook as well.
Right before I also block your number.
You walked straight into that one, my friend.
But you can walk straight outta my life!
Of course, the ex-partner asks if they’re still single.
Incredible. Amazing. That’s really something.
There’s a reason you haven’t seen me.
We broke up. That’s how that works.
I’m gonna be busy forever, actually.
Have a nice life! Or a bad one! I do not care!
Anything and everything.
You seem to have a hard time grasping the concept of a breakup.
Let me clear things up for you.
Sending a GIF is one thing.
Sending an emoji? The same one? Over and over again? That’s just amazing.
Weird how that works.
I’m also really happy, have a full social calendar, am saving more money than ever before, and I don’t feel like I have an albatross around my neck at all times. Weird!
Did they need to include the “boom roasted” at the end there? No. But I am very glad they did.
Share this with someone who’s going through a tough breakup. This will make them feel better!
