Jilted People Share The Stupidest Reason They've Been Dumped

[rebelmouse-image 18351952 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Stupid breakups happen. Seinfeld talked about it, and my mother has sworn her whole life that it is better to break up for a "stupid" reason than to have to live with someone who makes mouth noises. She doesn't mean speaking or laughing, obviously, but I've never met a woman more passionately against any other sound a human mouth can make. Slurping, chewing, mouth breathing ... and heaven forbid you let out an "ahh" after you sip something.

If looks could kill. Jeez.

One Reddit user asked:

What's the stupidest reason you've ever been broken up with?

It turns out the world is full of people who dump or get dumped for reasons other people think are stupid. Having said that... my mom is totally right about the mouth noise thing. Chew with your mouth closed if you can, people!

Immediately Saw Marriage

[rebelmouse-image 18351953 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

She met someone that she immediately saw herself marrying.

A month after we broke up she moved across the country, got married, called me to tell me she made a mistake, got divorced, moved back home, got pregnant and then got married again.

Her Current age : 22

Walk Home With A Friend

[rebelmouse-image 18351954 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When I was a teen my ex broke up with me because I didn't walk her home. I walked her home pretty much everyday for like half a year and one day when we we're next to my house with her next door neighbor, I decided I was just going to let them walk together. They lived right next door to one another and it wasn't far. I was tired and figured I'd chill home for a change. Apparently that makes me a bad bf so I got dumped.

Abuse Is Not Sexy

[rebelmouse-image 18351955 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

She was upset that I didn't hit her during an argument after she said some out of line shit. She told me she thought abusive relationships were "sexy" and would show that I "cared." That was the most bizarre thing I've ever heard, but probably best that relationship ended lol.

Not Even Dating

[rebelmouse-image 18351956 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A guy broke up with me that I wasn't aware of dating. We had dinner once. We spoke a handful of times via text but very short messages. Out of the blue, after a few months, I get a long message telling me he has to break up with me. We were both in our late 30's.

Time Passes

[rebelmouse-image 18351957 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Met on OKCupid.

Chatted a bit, we seemed to have a bunch in common.

We went on one dinner date that was ok but kinda awkward. He said some stuff that could either be red flags or he's a bad sarcastic flirt, etc - I was on the fence about another date but when he POUTED that I wouldn't kiss him in the parking lot I decided more on the no side.

We didn't talk after that. Eh, it happens. I forgot about it and went on with my single life.


I get a message on OKCupid from him:

"I see you're no longer lying about your age - anything else you want to come clean about?"


"Your profile says you're 30 now."

Yeah, because TIME PASSED and now I'm 30. Before that it said 29. That's how ages work?

"Well I can't entertain dating someone who would lie about something this basic. We're done."

When did we even start?

He blocked me.

I'm sure he felt....righteous?

Masculinity So Fragile

[rebelmouse-image 18351958 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I liked to be the big spoon and he told me I was questioning his manhood.

53 Hours

[rebelmouse-image 18351960 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Mine seems pretty mundane after looking through these comments but had a girl break up with me by saying:

"Its been 53 hours since you said I love you, so clearly you are trying to be distant so I break up with you first so YOU WIN."

I was relieved after the initial shock she was apparently batty and I never knew

Hoping For The Concert Connection

[rebelmouse-image 18351961 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Broke up with me at 2 in the morning, her reason was that one of her favorite singers was coming in for a concert and she was trying to meet him and have him fall in love with her.

Why Does It Matter Two Years Later?

[rebelmouse-image 18347524 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My first girlfriend who I was with for 2 years broke up with me because I went to see a movie with a group of people and never told her about it.

I saw the movie in our first month together.

Like You Meme It

[rebelmouse-image 18351962 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I had someone break up with me because I showed her too many memes.

Is this a problem? I think it's a problem.


[rebelmouse-image 18351963 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I dated a girl for one day. She broke up with me because in her words I was "immortal." I'm pretty certain she was going for immoral but hey you take what you can get.

God Said No

[rebelmouse-image 18351964 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

She said that God came to her in a dream and told her that to follow his path she could not walk it with me. She then started going to church and became an assistant minister or something. Then she started dating a local junkhead wife beater because he had reformed himself and come to God. And then he cheated on her. And now she works at Walgreens.

Inconvenient Cancer

[rebelmouse-image 18351965 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My dad was dying of cancer, and my highschool girlfriend dumped me because I was "depressing to be around."


[rebelmouse-image 18351966 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

It wasn't a break, up but me and this girl that I had never met before were waiting at the bus stop and we got to talking and everything was going pretty well, I'm fairly sure I was even close to getting her number, but apparently it turns out she was SUPER into astrology and when she found out I was Scorpio she stopped talking to me and walked away. She purposefully missed her bus to get away from me.

Lack Of Growth Spurt

[rebelmouse-image 18351968 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

We were both 21 years of age and had been together 3 months. He breaks up with me because I'm not tall enough. I'm 5'3" he was 6'9".

Was he expecting a growth spurt anytime soon??!!!!

Single For Heroin

[rebelmouse-image 18351969 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

She wanted to be single for her first heroin experience.

Fallout: New Vegas

[rebelmouse-image 18351970 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I broke up with a girlfriend in highschool because it was school holidays and she kept texting me to hang out but I was never replied because I had just bought Fallout New Vegas and it basically took over my entire life.

She was getting upset that I wasn't texting her, all I wanted to do was play Fallout, and figured it would be easier to just dump her so I could get back to my PC rather than try patch things up.

In hindsight it was extremely stupid because she was super cute and really smart, a really good gf in general. I ended up apologizing years later at a party we were both at and things were cool... never actually told her that I dumped her because I couldn't be had trying to explain to her that I just wanted to play my new computer game rather than hang out with her, but that's between you and I now, Reddit

tl;dr dumped a 10/10 gf in highschool because I just wanted to play fallout new vegas instead of replying to a few of her text messages

Christmas Eve In A Strip Club

[rebelmouse-image 18351971 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I once dated a woman from Shenzen, China. She was in the states for college. I took her out on Christmas Eve for dinner and as I'm driving her back to her dorm, we pass a strip club. She says she has never been and wants me to take her. I told her some other time, as I can't imagine spending Christmas Eve in a strip club. She dumps me on the spot.

It was worth it for the story.

My Seinfeld Breakup

[rebelmouse-image 18351972 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I broke up with a girl who pronounced 'ketchup' as 'cats-up'

My friends refer to it as my "Seinfeld Breakup"

I Wasn't Born In The 80's

[rebelmouse-image 18351974 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Someone broke up with me because he found out that I was three months younger than him, meaning that I was born early in the next decade. Which meant that I couldn't possibly 'get' him because I wasn't born in the 80s.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.

People shared their stories after Redditor drewyourstory asked the online community:

"What life event or experience changed your perspective?"
