POLL: 1-800-DUMP-YOU

Friday, August 08, 2008 - 12:01 AM

A reader writes... Q: I read about this new service that you can use to dial directly into someone's voicemail even if they're available to take the call. Is this an OK way to dump somebody? It's better than dumping via text or e-mail right??

POLL: Is it OK to break up by phone, text or e-mail?
 
3% (42) Yes. All's fair in love and war.
 
6% (80) Yes, but only if you haven't been intimate yet.
 
90% (1122) No. It's lame and cowardly.

No, wait...what the hell? You don't dump people over the phone, and you certainly never dump people with a voice mail. It's tacky. It's rude. It's insulting.

I honestly have never heard of something so insulting. If you're such a freaking coward about your relationship that you can't even break up in person, I don't think that you should even be in one. If you actually go through with this, I hope Karma is real and you get your just reward for that crap. You might want to grow up, and/or grow a pair.

So what is the text code for "We need to talk...", 2-4-2-4?

No, voice mall is not better than email or text to dump someone. They are all ways to restrict the flow of communication in your favor. When you break up with someone that way, you're denying them the ability to talk to you, to ask questions and to seek closure. Unless the person has done something grievously wrong, they deserve enough respect to be given a chance at dialogue.

Give respect to the soon-to-be-ex-significant other. Talk to them and be honest in person. The only reason you shouldn't meet them face to face on this one is if you need to file a restraining order, and I think they would get the point by then.

Um, no. Just no.

I suppose if you're a serial dater and efficiency becomes an issue. . . it's all part of the assembly line.

Getting some disclosure of honesty is much better than having the person just stop talking to you.
