People Share The Worst Excuse An Ex Gave Them For Why They Should Break Up.
People on Reddit were asked: "What is the worst excuse an ex gave you for why you should break up?" These are some of the best answers.
1/25 17 year relationship, 12 of it married.
"You don't believe I'm a ghost whisperer."
2/25 I literally had this used on me. No joke: "I just feel bad for all the women that haven't had the privilege of having my dick in them. We can get back together after I get some from other people."
The [jerk] was honest but those were the actual words out of his mouth.
3/25 You've become selfish since you got cancer. I'm tired of always having to stay home because you're sick all the time.
4/25 "It's not you, I just don't want to be in a relationship right now, and I need to be alone and focus on myself"
She had already met her new boyfriend, lol.
5/25 High school bf told me "high school relationships don't matter anyway".
6/25 Food shows... I watch too many food shows apparently.
7/25 "It's not like we ever said we were officially exclusive, or even dating"
We had lived together for over a year, sharing bills, holidays, sex, family events. Yeah I guess I never officially mentioned I thought we were dating. Oops.
8/25 "You have more free time than me and that's not fair."
We both worked two jobs. I still had Friday nights off and she had to work and for some reason, that was the real killer.
9/25 I'm depressed and I don't want to drag you down with me.
Translation: Sleeping with someone else will make me happy, and that person said I have to break up with you first.
10/25 "There's something very wrong with girls like you who have sex with guys so quickly." He was the first person I had sex with. At 22. But it was really just one of many excuses he came up with because he wanted to have sex with other people and felt guilty.
11/25 "I can't be with you because you don't believe in Jesus." To be honest though, the crying after the sex was getting a little old.
12/25 "You're just so miserable with me."
Really? Because I was feeling pretty good about our relationship up until now.
13/25 "I met my soulmate." He dumped the "soulmate" two weeks later.
14/25 "You're just not a catholic like me, and I need a religious man like Derp in my life. You know how seriously I take my religion"
She cheated on me with Derp at a catholic retreat. Clearly, she took her religion extremely seriously.
15/25 He was "intimidated" by my mind. (But he was apparently not intimidated by her cleavage.)
16/25 Tried to be a gentleman with my girlfriend of about 3 weeks. I figured we would take things slow because she told me her last boyfriend practically forced sex on her from the first week and she hated it.
She dumped me for "not giving her what she wants, sex-wise." She also told me over AIM...from her cell phone.
17/25 "I'm in love with my best friend. I think the only reason I dated you is because you kinda look like her...."
18/25 Me ex told me his dad had testicular cancer and that he needed to be with him, so he broke up with me. Now, the funny thing about this was that I later found out that his dad never did. Also, he started calling me a whore later when I got with my current boyfriend.
19/25 He told me I was a "pillar of negativity in his beacon of shining light". He was such an a**hole.
20/25 This was more of an ultimatum, but nonetheless, it was ridiculous. It was something along the lines of "If you want to keep dating me, you're going to have to date my friend too." They even had a name for it: The package deal. That was the end.
21/25 "I don't think you actually love me, and I'm pretty sure you are going to break up with me soon so I want to do it first so it'll look better from other peoples view."
We were together for 6 months and I thought everything was going great and loved her very much.
22/25 "You fart too much."
23/25 "Because you don't get angry enough when something bothers you".
I try to solve my problems calmly and rational (and am successful in doing so). She was just... weird I think.
24/25 "My mom grounded me from having a boyfriend, because I have bad grades."
We were a long distance relationship.
25/25 "You're too laid back." This was in relation to not questioning or denying her time with her friends/calling every 5 minutes to find out her location. I guess I... eventually dodged a cannonball.
I guess I should note that I'm not spineless, in fact I can be extremely stubborn in specific situations, I'm just a mellow person and conflict in a relationship doesn't really appeal to me when trust can be used instead.
In most situations, when you're hurt by someone, it can be best to just forgive and forget. However, there are some people that can't help but hold grudges. Sometimes it can just be petty, but other times, it can be for very valid reasons.
