18 ridiculous (yet hilarious) breakup reasons

The Amnesia boyfriend

He told me the other day that he was so grateful for my support throughout a tough job search. Now he told me he wanted to focus on his new job so we are over.


The food problem

“She ate food from a gas station”.


Playing the self-pity game

“I am breaking up with you because I always know you are going to dump me anyway.”


The gamer

“Look, I like you and all but this is cutting into my WoW time.”



Because she checked my phone when I was asleep.

The Fast and Furious girlfriend

The merging on highways stressed me out and I’d worry I couldn’t get in. My girlfriend got mad about this and broke up with me.


Let’s be completely honest

That was the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring….. except for me f*cking someone else.
