    So I'm going to break up with my girlfriend this weekend. The only problem is I don't know where to do it.

    She lives at home about 1.5 hrs away. I live in the city and have no car. So she drives in to see me on the weekends, and then drives home.

    Should I break up with her here...or should I resort to using the phone, as bad as that might be?

    This is a little less than 2 year relationship.

    tough one. they say breaking up in person is best, but it does seem bad to make her drive that far just to be dumped.

    In this case, I'd do it over the phone.

    Yeah it's really tough. I've been agonizing over it for awhile now.

    It is bad for her to drive this far just to be dumped...but even worse for her to have to drive back in hysterics/whatever fucked up emotional state she'll be in.

    Is there any way you could get a ride out to her?

    Make sure she drives to see you. Take her somewhere public like a mall. Dump her ass and make sure everyone knows. No matter what she says ignore her. Get cab ride home. Profit.

    TBH: id break up over the phone and say that your doing it here not because your scared of face to face but you don't want to have her drive all the way out there..

    i've broken up with a girlfriend over the phone. i don't see why it's such a big deal either. i guess the only downside is that you don't get that same "closure" from doing it face to face, but if it's more convenient over then phone, the go on with it.

    bullshit. i got all the closure i needed. when you're breaking up, it's no longer your concern to worry about their needs.

    I'm with Lauren/HuskiRuski... breaking up with someone over the phone is not a terrible thing to do to them... in fact, if I was on the shit end of things like this girl, I'd much rather be able to save a little bit of my dignity by not letting him see my full reaction (crying, etc.)

    If you make her drive out there, you can probably bet that she won't leave right away, and you're going to be dealing with a long, painful breakup where she'll lean on YOU for support (because you're the only one around less than an hour away).


    Do it on the phone, man.

    in for the phone, rock v hard place, may as well because I know from experience that the chick just wont leave, and ask to talk about it and shit.

    For real! In this situation having her drive to him is a terrible mistake because as someone mentioned she will probably drive home in hysterics and that is good for no one. Also, driving to see her would be silly. Phone.
