Breaking up is hard to do....for some people.

Some people break up with others like it's their jobs. One date, then onto the next; one relationship, then onto the next. People's hearts are broken and crumpled like little bits of paper strewn across the ground.

The worst part? There is no real reason for this, but they will try to give you one anyway.


u/NuclearWinterGames asked:

What's the most ridiculous reason for which you've been dumped?

Here were some of those answers.


My Kingdom For A Cat

My ex's cat was named "Ben". The girl I was dating's cat was named "Bundles".

One day, I called "Bundles", "Ben". She asked me what I just called her cat. I thought about it, and then remembered that was my ex's cat's name. I laughed and told her and she was super unimpressed. Broke up with me the next day.

What A Lot Of Grief For No Reason

I bought my GF one of the World of Warcraft expansion packs for her birthday. She started playing again -- like she really got into it -- and I hardly saw her. She'd play all night and would come to bed as I was getting up. To be clear, that made me want to dump her. But, what ended up happening was she started playing with her ex and it apparently rekindled their feelings for each other, because she dumped me after a couple of weeks of this and got back with him. But, by that time he had moved away, so their relationship was entirely limited to play-questing. And, then they broke up again after like a month of this. At the time it was horrible, but now I can't help but laugh.

Creating Problems Where There Are None

"I love you so much and want to spend the rest of my life with you. We have to break up, if it's really meant to be then we will end up together again like they do in the movies."

Activia Makes You Regular

Shared this before here, but this has and will always take the cake for me.

College GF's Dad won 1 million dollars in the state lottery over winter break. Broke up with me over the phone, telling me "now that I'm rich, I can't afford to date regular people like you. That's really the only thing wrong, you're just regular."

Guilty Conscience

The guy I was dating broke up with me cause he had family problems, I was all like, "i'm so sorry. I'm here if you need me." Two days later I find out he lied and asked out one of my best friends and she said yes. About a week later I asked him why he dumped me and he left me on read.

"I don't feel a spark of anything when we kiss anymore"

At that time I got hit in the mouth with a bat and couldn't kiss her for the past month. If you didn't want to be with me just say it or at least come up with a better lie to dump me over

Edit for backstory :

Freshman (me) and senior (her) broke up over the weekend and the following Monday I took my an aluminum bat (it was an old bat) to the backyard to take some frustration out on some tree branches in fire wood pile. The thickest one bounced the bat back at me and it hit me with lightning speed. Broke four teeth and stayed home from school the next day, senior gf noticed I wasn't in class and asked our mutual friend what happened to me and she explained to my freshly ex gf.

That day she text me after school that she wanted to get back together. We stayed together for a few weeks while I was healing and she thought my lisp was cute and out of nowhere one day she said the infamous words "we need to talk" and said she didn't feel anything when we kiss anymore. In my head I was thinking "we ain't kissed since my mouth got broke" but I took it like a man and went along with it. The next week she started dating a girl that had a big crush on her.

A Decade Of A Misunderstanding

I was dating a guy whose parents didn't like me. It was a long distance relationship, and so we mostly chatted online but also made occasional phone calls. So we were talking on the phone, and at one point I said, "You shouldn't have to choose between me and your parents..." The conversation continued, we decided to break up. We stayed friends. Something like 10 years later, we were talking online when the subject of our breakup came up. Turns out he thought I had said, "You should have to choose between me and your parents..." and decided that he wasn't going to do that. I would never give someone that kind of ultimatum, that would be ridiculous. It blew my mind that a single misheard word caused us to break up, and we didn't realize it for 10 years.

Branded A Gay‚ĄĘ


I asked her out and she sort of freaked. "Like...on a date? A date-date?! Oh..I want to say yes, but I can't. Every time I've dated a guy I liked we ended up hating each other. But I want to, but I can't. So....I know! You're my gay friend! I can't date you, because you're gay! Awesome! I have a gay friend now! Oh no, I'm late for class! Bye!".

I was like "What.....what just happened?". The other people of our social group were similarly confused.

All For A Dance

Not me but one of my friends who's a senior in high school got dumped by her boyfriend who she dated for almost 2 years. He dumped her because he didn't want to go to the school dance. A few days later he texted her to tell her that he wanted to get back together but she declined. He could have just told her that he didn't want to go and still be her with her or just go to the stupid dance.

She Clearly Changed Her Mind

On the surface, it sounded okay. My GF and I were kinda fizzling out. But when she dumped me, she said it was because I was not religious enough. She wanted to go to church every Sunday and for major religious holidays. I was okay with her going but I was conflicted about religion at the time so I didn't want to go. So that is what she said when she dumped me. Seems like a decent reason. What made it ridiculous is that about 6 months later, she was dating the president of the college atheist group.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
