Sheepish People Reveal The Pettiest Reason They Actually Broke Up With Someone.

There are many reasons to end relationships. Some reasons, however, are less justified than others.

Here, people reveal the pettiest reason they broke up with someone.

1/29. They raised the toll 75 cents going across this bridge I had to hit to get to her and it wasn't worth it anymore.


2/29. Fifth grade.

I liked this boy so much. He sat at my table, he had a cool bowl cut (hey, it's was 1993), he was smart and funny and really cute. He gave me butterflies.

He finally asked me out, we went to the Halloween dance together and everything. Had a pizza date. Held hands.

Then one day my mom picked us up from school and in the car my boyfriend and my sixth grade brother were talking and my bro was excitedly telling him about this video game thing, don't really remember the details.

Once we got in the house and we were in private, my boyfriend turns to me and says, "Wow, your brother's a dork!"

That was it. Lost all affection for him. Butterflies gone. Dumped him.

My brother is the BEST.


3/29. When I was 20 and in college, my family's house burnt down along with our dogs. I figured that since I was already losing everything, I might as well lose my girlfriend too. Hard to explain, but I feel like it was a good opportunity to start over. I dumped her while the ashes were still smoldering, at no fault of her own.


4/29. Christmas was like a week away and I didn't want to buy a gift.


5/29. 17-year-old me didn't feel like driving an hour to see long distance girlfriend and instead, broke up over the phone, stayed home and played video games.

6/29. When making tea, she didn't stir it, but clanked the spoon noisily against each side of the cup repeatedly.


7/29. He lived on a busy street. His bedroom had two large windows that faced the street.

No curtains.


8/29. She was too into me.

Then again it wasn't really that petty. She sent me 50+ snaps a day after we broke up. Most of them her crying or some crap. And now she's pregnant and her baby has my name, dunno it it's intentional or not.


9/29. She would do absolutely anything I would tell her to do. Sounds great right? No, that got so boring. It was like dating a servant. That, and she had really small teeth, freaked me out.


10/29. He used water in his cereal instead of milk.

11/29. Not me but a friend broke up with his last girlfriend because "she chewed popcorn too loudly during movies". His nickname is Costanza now.


12/29. My brother broke up with a girl because she had dentures and didn't tell him (She had been in an accident and had all her teeth knocked out.) He tried to paint it as her being dishonest, but I called bull.


13/29. He once came with his eyes open and crossed. Just really freaked me out. I could never get the picture of his face out of my mind after that.


14/29. She had the same name as my sister. I liked her and tried, but I just couldn't do it.


15/29. I got randomly fed up, after years. No buildup, no reason, just was listening to her ramble on and decided... fed up. Left her while walking on the street, did a literal U-turn. I'm not even kidding.

16/29. We ate mushrooms one night in college and we were coming down laying in bed and I realized she had a weird smell about her. I forgot about it, fell asleep, and after a couple more times seeing each other I ended it because the smell was permanent. Her natural aroma. I just couldn't shake it. It was like a combination of poppers and sweaty feet. We weren't a great match anyways but the smell made the choice easy.


17/29. She said she was a big Pink Floyd fan. Later, didn't recognize Pink Floyd on the radio.


18/29. She said Nickelback was modern day Shakespeare.


19/29. When my younger brother was in college he broke up with a girl for "cutting into his gaming time".


20/29. He ate chicken wings with knife and fork...

21/29. He ate my lunch while I left to get napkins for him. The only meals I ever really got my junior year was the free lunch provided from the school district for low income families. He didn't know that and assumed it was OK because I usually don't get mad over those kind of things but I was on my period and just got done with stupid standardized testing. So I walked away and never looked back.


22/29. I didn't date someone because she was too into disco. She was one of the most beautiful people I've ever seen. She was funny and very fun to be around. She was independent, but very affectionate. She liked me. I liked her. She serenaded me at a jazz bar unexpectedly with the most beautiful rendition of My Funny Valentine. But I was a music aficionado and at the time, I couldn't stand disco. She played it all the time. Turns out it was a very passing fad for her and now I like disco. I still think about it sometimes twenty years later.


23/29. She pronounced it "supposibly".


24/29. His schedule was too irregular.


25/29. I was too lazy to be in a relationship. All I felt like doing was being alone and doing what I wanted.

26/29. The guy I was with kept sighing when he didn't know what to say. Also he blinked slowly.

It drove me mad.


27/29. I had an ex leave me after five years so she could "go be young". About three years later she has two kids and she's divorced.


28/29. He spoiled Doctor Who for me. Serious spoilers.


29/29. She had a habit of biting her nails. The sound was so annoying and gross that I just could not date her any longer...

When you're a kid most adults will tell you one thing or another is "cool" and "fun." Odds are you're too young to form any kind of opinion on the matter one way or another. You're a kid, right? You don't know what you're eating for breakfast. However, when you get older and form that larger worldview, you realize that yeah, maybe that one time when you were a kid actually wasn't fun.

These are those stories.
