All of my break-ups were ugly, because I was on the receiving end.

06/09/14 3:07 pm

Never been in a "romantic relationship".

My last one was never very serious but he was a drug dealer & kleptomaniac. It ended after he tried to kill one of my best friends.
He's in jail now

dated a serial cheater. I found out he did a couple of my friends, he stole from me, and then he dumped me. I went off on him when he did. I haven't been with anyone since. I don't think I want to.

I left a guy I was going to marry. That sucked but was the best decision of my life.

That's what I got for dating "crazy". It was fun while it lasted.

Out of 4 divorces only one got a little ugly. The other 3 were very amicable.

I can't imagine an amicable one - at least if you are married. If you can get along, stay together.

Yeah it's funny how you can be so calm and logical about it and that will make the other person crazy.
Some guys are more dramatic than girls!

I don't know if I would say it was a break-up since it didn't last long enough to become serious, but we definitely didn't leave on good terms. It any terms, I would say.

06/06/14 6:24 pm

Not all are ugly. Sad but not ugly. I will always love my ex-husband and he'll always love me.

Same here. My last breakup (I swear) sounds like a Lifetime movie. 3 years long distance, I was the other woman, I even vacationed with his family multiple times. Oh.. there was a third girl in there.

For almost a year after this one breakup I would get these angry/mopey/accusatory emails from him. They were usually vaguely threatening and almost always talked about his d!ck.

An ugly breakup is much better than an ugly relationship.

06/06/14 4:56 pm

Nope. I always made break ups short and simple. I didn't ever see any drama because the conversation was over and I was gone before they had a chance to talk. There may have been drama afterward, but I didn't know about it because done is done.

I had one that resulted in death, nearly murder. I'd say yes.

More interesting might be to ask if anyone had a breakup that WASN'T ugly.

06/06/14 2:22 pm

Only had one that was really bad. The others were just decisions that the other person wasn't what they appeared to be, and I walked away. Was sad, of course, that it didn't work out as hoped, but we parted amicably.

On my 40th birthday my husband of 8 years said you are old and I'm out of here. He was 36 at the time and was seeing a 16 year old, a soph in high school. Crushed me at the time but 30 years later I have been married 26 yrs to a way better guy.

06/06/14 1:38 pm

Was he ever arrested???

Kind of ugly. Just met one of his friends who upon finding out who I was told me that he was a mess after I broke his heart and that she told him she's kick my ass for it. Thank goodness that wasn't our first encounter and she had deemed me "cool"!

Yeah, pretty ugly that it included an order of protection.

06/06/14 12:37 pm

Not ugly, occasionally sad.

06/06/14 11:57 am

I had a girl try to push me out of a moving car going about 20 mph. Crazy women.

06/06/14 12:35 pm

Correction. Crazy woman.

One day you and the rest of SOH will learn to joke around

06/07/14 6:35 pm

I joke around all the time crews, that is part of the essence of a Wench. Some "jokes" don't merit a chuckle or a nod, that's all.

06/06/14 11:57 am

As opposed to an attractive break up?

Is that an idiomatic phrase or what she was actually contemplating doing??

06/06/14 2:25 pm

That's a reference to a movie with Glenn Close and Michael Douglas called "Fatal Attraction". Great movie, glad I never lived through that!

RoDe Latinus wordsus
06/06/14 2:30 pm

Haha I was like a) if this is a phrase how have I never heard it and b) if this is real that's even crazier.

06/07/14 7:59 am

I got the reference ;-). Great movie!

My high school sweetheart was banging pretty much every other girl that looked his way. When I confronted him he would twist things around so it was my fault. We moved in together. I went on vacation and he called and told me he was moving out, which

06/06/14 11:15 am

Meant I was out too. When I came home to pack my stuff he was no where to be found. He sent his mommy to pack for him because he has no balls. Very stupid of me to stay with him as long as I did.

06/06/14 1:42 pm

And you still moved in with him...

Dated an 18 year old when I was 21. BIG MISTAKE. And it's the reason I think 25 should be the "adult" age.

Uncomfortable, sad, painful, etc, but never ugly. I've had a friend come home to find everything he owned in a pile in the front yard, on fire. One's soon to be ex completely vandalized his new girl's house. Those are ugly breakups.

Is there such thing as a glamorous break-up?

gonzoboy Northern AZ
06/06/14 8:34 am

"Yes", for the near unendurable pain of heartbreak. Lasted for weeks. Food had no flavor, music no melody. It was the last thought before finally being able to sleep, first upon waking. If this never happens to me again, it would be too soon...

I dated a guy for a month and broke up with him when I found out I was actually the "other girl" and my neighbor was his real GF and she was pregnant... He tried to say that my childhood abuse made me psycho and I needed help. LOL.

Sold everything I owned and left America briefly for a Swedish man I met one summer. Went through all of the paperwork to become a legal worker and taxpayer, got a 1 year visa, learned the language. He broke up with me 2 days after I arrived.

06/06/14 8:14 am

He didn't know I learned Swedish over the 6 month apart. He talked about the other girls he was sleeping with right in front of me while I was working, thinking I didn't understand. Was so mad, I went to his house after work and

06/06/14 8:15 am

Pounded on his front door with my fists until I broke blood vessels all the way to my elbows, swearing at him in Swedish! He said he knew he would probably break up several months before, wanted to see if I would come through. Jerk!

06/06/14 8:17 am

Had to stay for the three months I promised my employer I would work in exchange for the plane fare. Hated every minute of it! But, came home in the fall and met the man I married, so it was worth it!

Sorry to hear that, that's an awful thing to have to go through.

06/06/14 2:14 pm

Wasn't desperate, was in love and young and foolish. Fell head over heels the summer before, when we met while working in a resort off the south coast of Sweden. Sold everything because I was planning to move there. Happy it didn't work out!

Have to be in a relationship in order to break-up.
