These 'Nice' Ways To Break Up With Someone Are Not For The Faint Of Heart


If you've ever been dumped then you know how terrible of a feeling it can be.  Your whole world just comes crashing down.  You have this ridiculous mix of self reflection, guilt, hatred, revenge and sadness all bottled into one.  Was it something you did.  Is it a personality flaw that you just can't make someone happy.  Are you a grotesque monster who is destined to be alone?  Until you come to your senses and know that its their loss and move on and be better for it.  (Right?!?)
