Breakups are tough. They take a toll on your heart, your mind and your body. Simply coming to terms with the fact that someone no longer wants to be with you takes time.
Once you’ve accepted that fact, questions soon follow: Why did they leave me? Did I do something wrong? Was it because I only showered once a week?
Reddit users got to together and decided to share some of the… Less conventional reasons cited for a breakup:
1. Because they have plans to start dating someone else
I promised Isaac I’d start dating him on the 12th.
2. Because you introduced yourself to members of their family. Without permission
We were hanging out at the beach all day with a group of friends. His younger cousin shows up. I introduce myself, “Hi, I’m ThatRugReally.” Not even “ThatRugReally, your cousin’s girlfriend.” Get a text message a few days later breaking up with me because how dare I introduce myself to one of his family members, and he decides when that happens.
3. Because you touched her inappropriately in a dream
She called me one morning and said she had a dream that I grabbed her ass in public in front of a bunch of her family and friends. She said she couldn’t be with someone who would just do that and think that’s okay… I didn’t know what to say. She broke up with me because of how I acted in her dream.
4. You cheated on her. In a dream
She had a nightmare that i was cheating on her with a fictional made up woman. I found it so ridiculous that it actually made the break up way easier.
5. Because you never argue
We never argue and if we do, you never yell. I need to see emotion out of you.
6. Because their bestie broke up with her boyfriend
One girlfriend broke up with me because her best friend just broke up with her bf a couple days before. Didn’t know our relationships were tied together like that.
7. All of the reasons
Smeggy, I’m gay, I’ve met someone else, he’s much richer than you are, it’s not me it’s you, I think we’re better off as friends.
8. Because what you do to stay alive, is annoying
I don’t like listening to you breath.
9. Because your new haircut is not doing it
I got a new haircut (use to always have my hair long and cut it quite short this time) and this girl I was seeing told me she didn’t like it and that she didn’t find me attractive anymore.
10. Because they want to focus on playing video games
Dating me was taking time away from his efforts to play Super Smash Bros Melee professionally.
11. Because God said so
One of my husband’s earlier girlfriends was very religious. He was/is not. She had to pray about whether or not he could touch her boobs. God said that was okay but anything further would be a sin. So after touching her boobs, she broke up with him because “God told her to do it.”
