The Most Common Break-Up Lines, According To A New Survey

New Survey found that one in five people have been dumped via text!  (classy) 

It’s true, that younger people are more likely to use their phone to avoid a face to face.  13% of people prefer the dumping to come via text. 

People surveyed, one in eight say they would rather the break-up text then to be ghosted.  Ghosting is where the person just vanishes with no explanation. 

However, the study also found that it’s not considered appropriate to break up using a text if you have been on more than three dates.

Remember the good old says when you would break up with someone with a letter?  Yah, that doesn’t happen anymore!

But when we DO take the grown-up route and break it off, there are some go-to phrases we all lean on.  Here are the ten most common break-up lines people use . . .


1.  “We need to talk.”


2.  “It’s not you, it’s me.”


3.  “We want different things.”


4.  “I’m not the right person for you.”


5.  “I’ve been thinking . . .”


6.  “I need space.”


7.  “I’m not ready for a serious relationship.”


8.  “I just need some time for me.”


9.  “There’s someone else.”


10.  “I don’t know how to tell you this, but . . .”
