People Share The Most Creative 'Break Up' Lines They've Ever Heard

Breaks aren't meant to be comedy fodder.

But if you don't laugh you'd only be crying.

I've never thought of throwing in a little wit when dumping someone.

Maybe it would've eased the pain.

Or gotten me punched in the face.


Let's hear some relationship humor for the bitter end.

Redditor Jamicandude69 wanted to hear all the creative one liners people have used to drop someone.

So they asked:

"IF people used 'break up lines' instead of 'pick up lines' what would some of them be??"

I've only broken up or been broken up with the old fashioned way.

"I will always cherish my initial misconceptions of you."


"That is so good. Wish I would have thought to say that as a parting line to my ex-wife!"


"Hahahahaha haha this is cold!"



"If you take the 'L' out of LOVER. It's OVER."


"Gotta hold up the thumb and forefinger 'L' as this is said, of course."


"You droppin' Ls."


Slow Down

"Raise your hand if you have a boyfriend. Not so fast."


"A private was at boot camp when his father died. The mother asked the drill sergeant to let him know. So he had all the privates line up, and said, take a step forward if you have a dad. When the boy stepped forward the drill sergeant said, 'What are you doing stepping forward private, your father’s dead.'"



"We need to cover more ground so we should split up."


"Shaggy, you and Scooby check the basement, Velma check the library, Daphne and I will check the bedrooms."

"I checked my heart and it seems to be pretty broken down and my love for you is pretty empty so I’ll go investigate my thoughts."




The gym destroys everything.

Stay home...

"Hey babe, I think it's about time we cancel our gym membership. We're not working out anymore."


"Damn, I left my ex after a fight involving me taking her off my gym membership. I should have used this."



"A boyfriend when I was 14 and I agreed if we ever broke up we would text the other 'I break up with you.' He broke up with me and didn't use the line. Weak. I loved him more than he loved me and it was too much for him. We stayed friends for years after until he got another girlfriend and she didn't like me and told him we had to stop talking, 10 years later they're still together and we haven't spoken since."


The Diet

"Girl you're looking like a snack and I'm going on a diet."


"Girl, you look like a piece of lettuce and I'm going off my diet."


"This reminds me of some meme I saw years ago that said 'Your pants say yoga but your butt says McDonalds.'"



"You remind me of Halley's Comet. I don't wanna see you again for another 74 years."


"Sometimes goodbye is a second chance."


"So a long distance relationship? I don’t know. I’m just not ready for that level of commet-ment right now."



"Are we tectonic plates? Because we’re drifting apart."


"The use of tectonic plates could also be used as the pick up line for the same person. For example..."

"Are you a tectonic plate? Cause I'd love to to ram into you with force resulting in tremendous friction and heat."


"They say opposites attract, but you’re just too negative for me."


Let Go

"Hey, are you an anchor? Because you've done nothing but weigh me down."


Empty Pockets

"Our relationship is like my financial status: Broke."


"That wouldn’t be good for me I would owe her $25k in debt if the relationship was like my financial status."


That Girl

"I knew this girl in middle school who would break up with boys by saying: roses are red, violets are blue, trash is dumped and so are you."


"When I was in middle school I told a boy I was dumping him. He confidently yelled 'You can't dump me, I'm not garbage!' Respect. Allan was, and probably is, a very awesome dude. Sorry I dumped you in middle school."


Wow... people are ruthless when a relationship ends. Just say goodbye.

When singles finally find a romantic partner after what may have seemed like an eternal love drought, they make sure they put in all the effort it takes to keep that relationship going strong.

However, there are those who are convinced that the love they found is too good to be true–probably because they may feel they don't deserve it or because they have doubts.

That's the thing about those who don't trust a good thing when it happens. Their skepticism can be all-consuming and it can lead to self-sabotaging the relationship.

Ever since the global pandemic hit in March 2020, we found ourselves becoming a bit more cognizant of protecting ourselves from contagious diseases.

Sadly, masks, face shields, and hand sanitizer can't protect us from everything.

Some diseases are simply in our DNA and will begin wreaking havoc on our bodies without any sort of warning.

Many of these diseases come with symptoms that we'd only thought could be found in horror movies.

You never know anyone quite as well as you think you do.

Even your closest friends and family members have a way of surprising you upon revealing something about their past, or their interests and hobbies.

Sometimes, however, surprised doesn't even begin to cover how you feel about what you just learned.

Some people are so good at covering up sad, dark, even despicable elements of their lives, that you would never have known had you not somehow found out yourself.

Even if it's debatable whether or not you're better off knowing this information.

We can't be brilliant every second of every day.

Even the Mensa-level brains that walk among us have their off moments.

It is inescapable.

Sometimes IQ doesn't matter.
