I just broke up with my boyfriend a few days ago over a text message because I'm only 13 and I totally wasn't ready to call him and deal with that and everything. so how bad is it to break up with a guy over text?

Very, you should have done it in person. It makes the other person feel even worse that you couldn't do it personally.

But you're 13 so it doesn't matter.

breaking up any type of way is not an easy thing. I feel as though a text message is a weak way to break up with someone, but it's also a great way if you feel that you can't handle hearing the voice of someone you care about but no longer wish to be with. I once broke up with a boyfriend in person at my home(because if he was to snap or something I knew where everything was) He cried right in front of me and it was the saddest thing I ever saw a man do, I started crying too. I don't think I could handle breaking up with someone that way again so I prefer to do it over a phone conversation or through text message as the last resort(depending on how the guy makes me feel).

It's really bad. It shows you are weak and immature. And he will take it like you never cared in the first place if you broke up over a text message. At least on the phone and even that is bad. Then again you are only 13.........just don't do it when you are older.

that's horrible! that way, u may cushion the fall for yourself, but ur pulling the pillow away from ur ex! this means that u were not there for him, and getting dumped sucks, especially by text. he needed someone, and he had to go through that by himself. I'm guessing this is one of his first break-ups because u guys r only 13. it may have been hard on u, but think about what he's gone through. once u realize that u need to fix this, call him up and have a nice long talk about it. it will repair ur relationship cause u guys will probably want to be friends after this right? just tell him why u broke up and hopefully he won't be too crushed. ;)

That isn't the right way I know your young but still, you did know that it's not the way to do it I know you feel that you weren't ready but if you'd just convinced yourself to call him you would feel better about it and he won't feel hurt because I don't really think you can explain yourself fully through a txt anyway forget about it, move on and learn from your mistakes, and your only 13.

Sorry, but that's lame. How would you feel if your bf broke up with you by email or text? If you break up with him, at least do it in person and explain why you can't continue on with the relationship. I know you might not handle telling him in person because it might get emotional, but at least write him a letter to make it personal. He's going to think you're a b*tch for doing this now.

I think you need to see him once more to explain your reasonings of why you wanted to break up to bring closure for both of you. He's going to understand you if you just tell him.

Think of it like this

you like this guy

you guys decide to go out

you get a new text message

it's your bf

and it says that he's not ready y to be in a relationship

do you think it's bad?

next time, do it in person or at least over the phone. but since you are only 13, who cares? it's not the end of the world. you're young so that relationships shouldn't be taken so seriously. you'll get over your guilt and your ex will get over the 'text' breakup.

I wouldn't recommend texting a boyfriend over serious issues like that in the future... but for now, don't worry about it!

I wouldn't do it if I was older, but I mean..that's one of the great things about being your age! When I was 13, I would just get my friends to break up with guys for me and they turned out alright. I say enjoy being 13...text message break up while you can get away with it...cause when you're older it's gonna be a lot harder.

Hmmm, do you think it'd be ok to tell him you're sorry for doing it over a text message - that you were just so nervous or something? I'm not sure.
