Breakups are one of the hardest things to experience in life. It’s already a difficult situation, but finding out through a text message is probably the worst way to get dumped. Nonetheless, sometimes these texts turn out to be quite hilarious. Check out some of the most ruthless and funny breakup messages in the list below.
1. Well Done, Dave
Dave is probably destroyed after seeing this one. All he needed to do was remain loyal to his wife and children, and he could have avoided this situation. Now everyone in that parking lot and people on the internet will know he had a mistress.
His wife decided it would only be fair to clean out the bank account and leave him with nothing. Dave didn't think when he decided to cheat on his loving wife. Don't be like Dave.
2. Apparently It's Not Mutual
Don't you love it when your significant other sends you a cute text? It is even more fun when they build up suspense to tell you their big news. This "let's say it at the same time" didn't work out well for them.
This couple was on two different pages, and only one of them had good news. It's crazy that you can go from wanting to marry someone to being broken up within a matter of seconds.
3. What A Message
We don't know what Paul did, but he is not going to be having a good day. This woman decided to publicly announce that she wanted a divorce at a local restaurant.
Good thing she got to keep the dog. Hopefully, a different Paul doesn't misinterpret this message.
4. A Yard Sale We All Want To Be In
Usually, garage sales are to get rid of things that you have held onto for too long. We have never seen one for people who get rid of their ex's stuff.
This is an interesting way to make sure everyone knows your wife is a cheater and you are getting a divorce.
5. At Any Rate They Were Still Courteous
If you are someone who likes pizza, this breakup wouldn't be that bad because you have a who pie of pizza to eat. Then again, you're currently single and perhaps sick to your stomach.
On the one hand, it was kind of them to buy their ex a pizza to break up, but on the other hand, the pizza delivery person knew what was about to happen because they had to write the message. This is purely savage.
6. Well Played
Each relationship is like a long, twisting road. As you drive down it, you will experience many sharp turns. For some, they are lucky enough to enjoy the ride. The road they take could be very calm and safe, without too much traffic.
However, every journey has a destination, and so many relationships are driving towards a destination called “heartbreak.” Here is an example of a driver who only saw the warning signs when it was a bit too late.
7. Broke And Single At The Same Day
For someone to be this angry with their ex, they had to have done something horrible. Emily was just trying to get Steven's attention because he needed to see how mad she truly was.
We now know Steve is a cheating liar who has been publicly shamed, and his cheating was caught on camera.
8. Not The Best Joke
We've heard some really terrible jokes before, however, this one is definitely one of the worst, yet best at the same time. This is one way to let a person down easy, by telling a joke.
We don't know what's worse, the fact that he made a joke out of their breakup, or thought this would be a gentle way to tell her it was over.
9. Now Let's Play A Game
It seems like this guy was shady talking to a girl named Kelsi on Facebook and now he has to literally pick up the pieces of his life.
We hope he paid attention during the relationship because it looks like he needs to remember a few milestone events in order to get his belongings back. Luckily for him, his now-ex-girlfriend didn’t destroy all of his stuff as some other people might do.
10. Careful What You Wish For
Have you ever made a wish at 11:11? This person told her boyfriend that she wished to be together forever, and he wished that they would break up soon.
We hope that one day they will be able to make a wish again and have someone react in a much nicer way.
11. Not Funny At All
Making people laugh is not always easy. You have to know your audience and what kind of jokes they will enjoy. This person was trying to make their crush laugh, but it backfired on them in a big way.
Not only did they get broken up with, but they also found out they were making themselves look stupid.
12. The Main Point
When you part ways with somebody you must make sure it's what you need and you're not going to backpedal on your promise.
As should be obvious here, this person effectively attempted to play mind games by saying, "you'll never find somebody like me." Isn't that the point when you break up to find better people.
13. Can You Spell That For Me Please?
Usually, "Ily" means "I love you." Sadly, this person was not ready for the "ily" they were receiving.
Right when they thought they were going to hear "I love you," they found out that their significant other was leaving them. That has got to hurt.
14. Thoughtful Enough To Leave A Cake
Sometimes, nasty breakups lead to a situation where you know that you would still be living in the same neighborhood. As a result, one of the two usually packs up their bags and moves elsewhere in town.
However, there have been cases when breakups have made people relocate to another city or even country. In this case, one person moved to the other side of the world to get away from their ex, as you can see here.
15. Math Is Important
Not everyone can excel in all subjects. This person is not great in math and English, but that shouldn't be a reason to not love someone.
We don't know what the reason was but we know it is not because of their lack of math skills.
16. What A Denial
Either this person is so foolishly in love that they can’t see what’s going on or denial took over all of their natural senses. Either way, once it finally hits, she is going to be in for a rude awakening.
Her boyfriend is trying to make it clear that their relationship is over, but she is not letting it sink in.
17. Take A Good Look In The Mirror
There's nothing like coming home and going to the bathroom only to learn that you've been dumped just by looking in the mirror.
Not only is your relationship over, now you need to clean the lipstick off of your mirror as you think about the memories that you once had with your life partner.
18. Letting The Neighbors Know
This woman took her breakup to another level. She went all out and ordered a printed sign. All that work just to let the neighbors know that her husband cheated her.
Thanks to her poster now everyone in the neighborhood knows that she moved out because her husband is a cheater. Her husband is not going to get invited to BBQs any time soon.
19. A Creative Breakup
This case shows that if you think you’re getting away with going behind your partner’s back, you should think again. This girl just got hit with one of the biggest breakup combinations.
How could she be so sneaky? No one deserves to be deceived on this level. At least she doesn’t need to feel guilty anymore.
20. When You Have To Explain More Than Once
How many times should someone tell you that it's time to break up before you get the message? We get it that you have feelings for this person, however never be too blinded that you don't get the clues.
To be fair, these messages were more like a trivia game rather than a breakup text. Maybe the should have just been straight forward instead.
21. Take Care Of Business, Shawn
Remember when you were little and you had your first boyfriend in kindergarten or first grade? This little girl figured out at an early age that you are supposed to communicate with your significant other.
Shawn did not talk to her since the day he asked her out. He forgot to talk to his "girlfriend" for three months. What kind of relationship is that?
22. Telling The World
Imagine scrolling through Instagram to find out you have been broken up with; no call, no text, just a mysterious social media post.
We wonder what she did to be broken up with her through Instagram. We hope they had the chance to talk things out in private rather than on social media.
23. 100,000,000 Trampolines
When it comes to a breakup note, beginning with a compliment to the person you're parting ways with probably won't soften the blow. They're going to believe that you left them an affection note just to read that you need to end things with them.
Also, comparing someone's smile to "100,000,000 sparkly trampolines" is not the best compliment to give when you are breaking up with someone.
24. Hopefully He'll Read The Paper Before Visiting
Well, if you thought getting dumped on social media was terrible, imagine getting dumped in the newspaper, something that anybody can see. That is what happened to Kevin Maxey, whose ex let him know that they were done in the personals section of the newspaper.
What if he never saw it, and he didn't know why his significant other wasn't speaking to him? That is a cowardly way to end things.
25. Breaking Up With Work
Sometimes, breakup letters don't need to be for boyfriends or girlfriends. For example, this girl wrote one letter to Five Guys, the fast-food restaurant that she worked for. It was an unique way to tell her boss that she is quitting.
She must have been friendly with her colleagues for this to be acceptable. Usually, people wouldn't quit their job with a breakup letter.
26. Memorable Imaginary Memories
Greg saw this woman on a dating profile, imagined their life together, and weighed all his options. In his mind, they got married but ended up divorcing.
Before he wasted more time talking to her, knowing it wouldn't work out, he ended things before they even started.
27. One Stone, Two Birds
This kindergartner assumed that he would solve two problems at once with this note. He simultaneously broke up with his girlfriend and wished her a happy one-month anniversary.
At the very bottom, he wrote, "It's very hard to do this." At least he felt a little sadness for their breakup.
28. Spelling Is Everything
When this person got scared that their girlfriend might be pregnant, he tried to be clever by sending a text message that his phone was no longer in service. It would have worked if he spell checked his message first.
His girlfriend called him out on the spelling mistake, yet he still tried to pull off the same trick. We hope she turned the tables and dumped him instead.
29. Savage Girlfriends
Steve's girlfriend discovered that he was dating another girl behind her back. Both women found out and made this sign so Steve would know both of his girlfriends have dumped him.
We like the personal touches they added, like the selfie of the two girls and using his full name.
30. The Endless List
When you are being broken up with, you often wonder why it is happening. This person did not want their ex to wonder why the relationship ended, so they made a long list of reasons why the relationship was ending.
Although, none of these reasons are that great to cause a breakup. We hope this person finds someone that likes them for who they are instead of a person who won't accept them.
31. That's How It Ends
This breakup letter is straightforward. They said exactly what they needed to say and wished they could remain friends with their ex.
They tried to ease the blow by saying that no one knew they were even dating, so it's not that bad, right?
32. A Picture That Says A lot
This person had difficulties writing his breakup letter. At least he admits that he doesn't know how to express his feelings properly.
Naturally, he chose to draw an image of himself riding a giraffe to help make her understand that he's breaking up with her. That makes everything clear.
We're not sure why people are breaking up with their significant others in a public way. However, it seems to be more common than we thought Not only did she break up with him on Valentine's Day, but she also didn't let him say goodbye.
She was nice enough to take all his belongings to his parent's house, but it is still sad to find out in public.
34. That's A Nice Way To Put It
Although many people might try and be gentle when they’re breaking up with someone, that’s not the case for this little boy. He doesn’t want anything to do with his girlfriend and even drew a graphic image of her dying.
We hope Valerie didn't have to see this because it is slightly graphic for a young child. Valerie deserves someone much better
35. Sweet And To The Point
We wish we had a follow up on this one. How did everything go down after this? How long had they been dating for her to break up with just a three sentence note?
How did Alexander respond, and what did his friends think? She kept it short and simple so he would get the point.
36. Batman To Rescue
It's hard to break up with anyone, so in some cases, it may be easier to use words that another person wrote. People quote movies regularly, but we don't know if they use them to break up with others.
At least the person realized that they were being broken up with a Batman quote. Some people wouldn't understand the reference or why the person chose those words.
37. Ahh, New Movie
People can be brutal sometimes. Instead of being straight forward, they play guessing games to break up with their significant others.
Why couldn't the person just say that they wanted to see other people instead of making this person think that they wanted to see a movie?
38. Right Back At YOU
This is awkward. This guy decided to use magic to break up with his girlfriend, but little did he know she is pregnant with his child.
Although they are talking about magic, nothing is magical about these messages.
39. He Didn't Plan This Double Breakup
This man would have gotten away with his affair if he had managed to send a text message to the right woman. Instead, he is losing his mistress and his wife, but he deserves it.
We wonder what his response was to try and cover this mistake up. Maybe he convinced his wife that he wasn't being serious with her.
40. Funny? Nah Not So Much..
You can tell that the person on the right is done with giving their partner another chance to hurt them. They do not care what happens because they are ready to break up as soon as possible.
There's only so much a person can take in a relationship, however we need to consider how badly this person was treated for them to make such a cold joke in a serious time.
