    He broke up with me via Facebook message: “I can’t stand the fact that many guys like and comment on your Facebook photos”. Well, it was such a horribly ridiculous reason but I’d better have nothing to do with such person, I think.

    My worst ever breakup, well I am happy to say I don’t think I have ever had a bad break up, however I can tell you about my friend, I think this is the worst, she was getting married in September, they had been together for 71/2 years, engaged for nearly 2 years, everything was booked and mostly paid for, the dress had been bought, the men’s suits had been organised, they just signed to another 12 months on their house, got another contract on the broadband, when out of the blue, her fiance, decided he loved her but not enough, he told her to cancel all the wedding plans, which she did, the girl was heartbroken, but has been putting on a very brave face, she has started drinking, but we are trying to keep her on the straight and narrow, she is coping extremely well under the circumstances, he gave no reason other than he can’t do it anymore, for 7 weeks, this poor girl has been going out of her mind. Well at the weekend on a lighter note, he came back and asked if they could try again but start as a new relationship, apparently he had wedding jitters, but I believe an extreme case, which explains his issues, x x

    Hi Babs,

    Thank you for hosting my contest! I’m really exciting to see some worst breakup stories already posted. I wanted to share one of my worst breakup ever experiences.

    My boyfriend won a fellowship to a summer writing program in Alberta Canada after I found the fellowship and spent days helping him fill out his application. We were very excited about our plans that I would drive to Vancouver from California and meet him, and we would camp and drive from Vancouver back to California.

    After driving 1270 miles, I picked him up in Vancouver and he told me that “he met someone who really understands him” , “his soul-mate” an “actress who really understands his artistic process” and not a “soulless robot musician like me.” It was a rocky drive back to California as he went on and on about what a brilliant actress she was, how her natural gift had been spotted by all of the directors, and somehow, “she always was picked for the lead in every production” — while I drove the car.

    Once we got home, the actress started calling him and they talked frequently, sometimes right in front of me (since we lived together)– it was pretty obvious that the two soul-mates were going to get together, and I would get the boot . In December, he returned to Canada — I bought him all of his cold-weather clothing and drove him to the airport. After he had been in Canada for a few days he called. I told him that “as he had found someone who really understood him, someone who understood his artistic process, his soulmate” that I was breaking up with him, as I had found a fellow “soulless robot-musician” who really understood me. He was hysterical and began calling me 3 times per day, usually crying and threatening to hurt himself if I broke up with him. I kept asking him “What about the your soul mate, the actress?”

    It took some time but we finally broke up with each other. To my knowledge, he never even got together with the actress.
