The end of a relationship is never a nice thing. There’ll probably be tears (the ugly kind), strangled words and, more often than not, a lot of snot. But there are certain things that make the ‘standard’ heartbreak even worse – like, 1,000 times worse – and this reddit thread is full of them. Here are some of the worst break-up stories, which will probably make you feel better about your own.

You’ve got to hand it to the girl: innovative.


My girlfriend of a year broke up with me by sending a video of herself singing a break up SONG that she wrote. It included a background dancer of one of my good friends.

I was at a party at the time she sent it and I foolishly played it aloud so all my good pals could hear it, and hear my heart break.

Definitely the worst.

Insult to injury, or what?

Two o’clock in the morning he rolls over and says he isn’t happy anymore. He proceeds to wake up, get dressed and take me home just like that. I was staying at his place because I had no method of transportation to work in the morning and he lived within walking distance. We didn’t end up back at my place until 3, I was in so much shock I just followed his instructions, went to bed until 5, walked the 3 hours to work and tried to continue with a regular work day. I ended up having a breakdown at lunch with a coworker and took the rest of the day off. Worst breakup ever.

This. This is a sign of what is to come. This is just the tip of the iceberg, my friends.

One of my buddies got dumped over snapchat.

Aside from everything else, this just seems deeply illogical and long-winded.

She had her step sister call my parents phone (didn’t have a cell phone then) to break up with me. Except my dad answered so she told him it was over. He simply said “I think you want to talk to my son.” Looking back I think it’s hilarious.

Ice. Cold.

My sister got broken up with in her birthday card. Yeah, he gave her a birthday card in which he writes “I want to break up”. It happened in middle school. Later that day our brother and I pushed the guy around a bit.

I mean, like, why then?! Why not wait, FFS?!

A month into a relationship, in the middle of intercourse. Then he told me not to cry because I was a beautiful person. Shut the fuck up dude.

7. CLWsucks

Yeah, fuck Mike.

He walked out while I was in the shower and I never saw or heard from him again.

Fuck you, Mike.

8. Shafir11

Fuck Melissa, too.

I had a pretty important test in school and she ended it right before i went in, fucked me over. Fuck you Melissa, I know you did it on purpose.

This would be really sad if we weren’t just wondering who the fuck plays hangman anymore?

A game of hangman. “I want to be single” was the phrase that I had to guess. Needless to say I cried while walking 3 miles home.
