Seems that social media like texting, being impersonal, makes dumping a lot easier.

2002: Dumped by girlfriend
2005: She starts dating my best friend. I get married.
2006: Water under the bridge; we are all good friends again. We hang out all the time.
2008: Best friend and ex-girlfriend get married. I am the best man and my wife is a bride's maid.
2010: Ex (now best friend's wife) informs my wife via email that they no longer wish to spend time with us because they feel they have outgrown us.

We have seen them only twice since then.

Good riddance. Besides losing what appears to be a crappy friend, I think you have had it pretty good :)

Dood. . . that's up there with one of the most arrogant statements, ever!

HOW RUDE!

Outgrown....maybe they just got fat and are embarrassed to be seen together.

*cringe*.. What the f*#k does that mean? Complete and utter bullsh#t. Arrogant is putting it nicely. Good riddance to as#@&%es...

I had some "friends" pull that same BS on me as well (also by e-mail). It's almost worse than getting dumped by a romantic partner in some cases. Probably could support it's own thread BTW.

Just for the record, if anyone feels I am too immature to be around, PLEASE leave me alone :)

Worst ever break up, don't know if it's ghetto: completely out of the blue, seriously, with no sign that it was coming, the @#$% dumps me three days after I had surgery to repair a shattered heel. "There was never going to be a good time to tell you" he said. That I picked someone like that made me do a deep dive into myself that resulted in major internal changes to my view of what relationship means to me. I can honestly say no one like that will ever be allowed in again.

Boy. . . I'm with you. . . it's perfectly OK to build fences as long as there are gates to let the right people in.

Why weren't we born with this knowledge?

Are climbers more clingy than the norm?

pc, the term is called co-dependent. And, if you solo a lot, it probably doesn't apply.

A double ghetto dump both ways.
A week and a half after I got married for the third time,
I came home early from work and found my new wife in bed with her
old boyfriend.
Ultimate Ghetto dump!

I then proceeded to Ghetto dump them
out the front door with no clothes on. with her furniture
and belongings following right after them.

I'm kinda glad it happened tho.
If it hadn't, I wouldn't be married to my lovely Wife
of 21 years now.

Weege - I have sung Carmina Burana [first bass = baritone] a bunch of times with the Bach-Elgar Choir in Hamilton, Ontario. Our best performance - by far! - was at Artpark in Lewiston, New York. Full-on orchestra with the Buffalo Symphony. We got a standing ovation - I sh#t you knott - of like twenty minutes! Longest damn ovation I've ever received in a lifetime of performances - very memorable.

awesome piton peat,
much respect.

A friend of mine was working overseas when he got an email from his wife that was four words long:

I want a divorce.

Cold. Fukking cold.

This is a depressing thread if you feel, a funny thread if you think.
Zip, just send her a picture of you masturbating over her picture and thank her for the breakup "sext".

Come on, youz dadz. . . now tell us just how ghetto you've been when the tables were turned!

I was thinking the same.


I've never been dumped, though have had more non-starts than I want to think of. And when I needed to stop seeing any guys, I always did my best to be kind and direct. It sucks badly enough to be rejected, even if you weren't really happy, Why make it worse?

...they feel they have outgrown us.

Going through the early 20's when friends started first getting married, and then again when babies started coming, and not being included in social gatherings because I was a unit of one sucked. I didn't understand why there had to be "pairs" and "sets" to have balance...


I did have someone tell me last year that "no man who owns a home would be interested in dating you." When I dumb-foundedly asked why, they said "Well, you have nothing. What do you bring to the table? The only guy who will be interested is a dirtbag who lives on the road like you do."

They said men would look at me as if I were out to take advantage of them and live off them.


That was about the most horrible thing I ever had someone say to me.
