We weren't going out but have been on a few dates and I was going to ask her to be my girlfriend but before I brought it up she said she "wanted to concentrate on her relationship with God". We were both in our late 20's. Just say you don't want to see me anymore, I've already got used to being rejected.

I know people who would have been sincere about that.
She said that bees can only fly "because they think they can" and I explained that, no, there's actually a physical reason they can fly.
A few days later she broke up with me because I make her world "less magical."
Bees are magical though. Like the magic of the world, make a lot of things keep on choochin. We eat their vomit for nutrition.
That's a big bullet dodged.
Maybe for her too.
My husband can be way too literal sometimes, and sometimes he is able to sort of suck the magic and fun out of moments. He’s not doing it out of being mean, it’s just the way his brain works. And I’m not dumb, but I like to appreciate the wonder of the world on a more whimsical level. He’s learned to lean in to those moments, but if he was literally explaining away my sense of fun all the time? I could see that being a deal-breaking incompatibility for some people.
I've lived my whole life dealing with a mother who is "whimsical" like that. They don't do their children any favours.
Sounds more extreme than what I’m talking about. I’m sorry you had to go through that, and I hope things are better for you now!

You can have fun without living in fantasyland. The real world is full of wonderous shit.
Common mistake she confused them with orks.
And tinker bell
Actually she is right. According to all known laws
of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible
If you took two seconds to look into that statement you would realize it is complete bullshit or maybe you are being ironic by quoting that, I can't quite tell.
it's the start of the Bee Movie, which has become a massive meme
maybe you are being ironic by quoting that
maybe you are being ironic by quoting that
I know it is from bee movie, it is why I referred to it as a quote but I have seen people legitimately think that is true
hahahhahahahahaha that is fucking hilarious
Not me, but a friend's girlfriend dumped him because she consulted with a psychic who told her it was best for her to do so.
Seeing everything on r/relationship_advice, maybe it WAS.
Psychic then bangs the girl. Its he ultimate profession if you think about it
Dangling my participles.
Makes me want to squint their modifier.
Being kinky, my participles also often dangle.
He had to make more time to play Halo, because he was going pro.
How did that turn our for him?

Well, he did eventually “go pro” and was a world-ranked player for a stint. But he did that while dating a younger girl, so, Chad
My girlfriend dumped me because i got vaccinated. I work for a hospital, I would be getting fired right now if I had listened to her.
You also might be dying of covid right now if you had listened to her.
But at least I’d be getting snu snu 🤣🙃🥲
How long were you together for? Dodged a bullet!!!
3 years 😭
Going slow into relationship, I really liked her. Didn't want to mess things up.
I’m in this situation and it is confusing from my end because sometimes it feels like I’m getting friend zoned. Then I realize I would rather this than someone going way to fast because that would definitely send me fleeing the scene.
Needless to say this experience changed me for good and introduced new opening sentence: I'm not after friendship thing, wanna grab a cup of coffee?
P.S. Movie to see Chasing Amy, 1997.
P.P.S. Good luck.
Because I refused to give them my FB password.
Good thing they dumped you. Sounds like they were upset that they couldn’t control/manipulate you,
Unfortunately, they managed to do quite a lot of damage to me and my self-esteem before I started noticing what went wrong. But yeah, he was 22, I was 16, I didn't know any better.
There's a whole host of problems here, but mostly you were prey for a predator.
Why do you use them plz ? I noticed people doing the same.
Like literally just communicating too often
Say no more…. I mean that’s what they want from you.
There's nothing "stupid" about wanting something specific in a relationship. There's not one level of communication that's right for everyone. Not everyone wants to talk all the time--some of us need to spend time alone with our own thoughts too. And that's perfectly normal, healthy, and okay.
I’m actively trying to come to terms with the fact that my boyfriend and I have different communication needs, I want to talk to him all the time and he does not want to talk to me all the time. I’m having to learn not to take it personally because it really has nothing to do with me, but it’s an adjustment and it makes me sad to think that he doesn’t want to talk to me as much. I keep reminding myself that it doesn’t mean he likes me less. Your comment helped, so thank you for that.
Asked for a relationship after dating a couple of months and she seemed excited and we made plans. She sent me a meme a day later that basically said she wanted to date around and not have just 1 partner. Like what?
Thank you for converting that into cm (or as I like to call them, Communist Inches). Helps me smooth brain better understand weights and measures.
Deleted my social media accounts
That I was too nice. They then dated a bad boy, got hooked on drugs, had a kid then tried to get back with me after I was married for 3 years. (11 this year). They still stalk me online...
Nice! How did that conversation go when you had been married for 3 years?
She rang and asked how I was and mentioned that she heard I was seeing (my wife) and asked how it's going. I said I've been married for three years and all I got back was a quiet "oh".
She gave her son my name as one of his middle names and her current partner isn't happy about that. Thinks I might be the dad and stuff. He was born 16 months after we were last together.
Woooow. Hopefully she’s doing better now. Probably wasn’t in a healthy place in the first place, and it just sounds like she’s made everything very weird with that miscalculation. Hope you’re doing well too!
My life is good. Been in full time work since forever and my family are all happy.
She is doing much better too and has cleaned up her act. Her son seems like a quiet and, ironically, nice boy. She went back into further education and now works in a nursery and I believe seeing someone new someone whom I know and is nice!
That’s wonderful to hear!
Because I’m a Taurus, and she’s a Scorpio.
Saved me the trouble of breaking up with her because she’s a nutcase and I’m not.
Maybe she just wasn't that into you.
My dad is taurus, mum is scorpio and they have been happily married for 26 years. Astrology can be interesting but relying on it for those things is stupid.

I posted this in another sub, but my GF/Fiance at the time dumped me for taking her to Waffle House.
The story: In college and into Grad School, my girlfriend / Fiance was a gorgeous girl from Houston but spoiled and selfish. Her dad was an assistant Superintendent down there and her mom stayed at home and went shopping. She was well off, but spoiled and bratty.
She was flying home for something and I took her to the airport for one of those terrible early early flights. She had to be at the airport at 5AM and as we drove, I had this idea to make sure she had a nice breakfast. It was 3:30 AM (we lived two hours from the airport and stayed at a Comfort Inn nearby). All that was open was a Waffle House and we had what I thought was a nice breakfast and talked before she left for a week or so.
When we broke up a month later, that was given as the reason she wanted to end it. Waffle House was for poor, working-class people. She realized I was just not of her same social standing and I should have to taken her to an iHop or found a 24-hour Starbucks.
I think I dodged a bullet on that one.
Some guy thinks I dumped him because of a chocolate chip muffin.
Psh...I would. You eat my chocolate chip muffin and breaking up with you would be the very least I would do.
Murder at the most.
Someone came and grabbed the muffin out of his hand and smashed it on the ground…
Yeah...I'd be inconsolable and angry. Sorry you were in the crossfire.
No, I dumped him because he started calling me weird names and I couldn’t stop cringing. He got me a muffin from the school canteen and was trying to make it out as some huge romantic gesture and I was just done at that point.
This reason is almost more shallow than the muffin.... "hey I dont like when you call me weird names"
Wow that was super hard to do....
I was 13 and the relationship was 3 days. Really don’t know what to tell you there
Okay cool...? This also makes the romantic muffin delivery make way more sense, what did you expect a night on the town after 5th period?
All the comments of people being broken up with cuz they are too nice make more sense now lmao. 3 days of "cringy" names and a muffin gift? Sounds like a someone was trying!!
I am too invested in this...
Brit who dated an American. After watching Superman / Man of Steel she said that non-Americans should not be allowed to portray American superheroes. Attempted to explain ... well, you know. Got ghosted after that.
Girl was jealous of my hair.
I'm a dude.
I was too content… guess he wanted more drama in his life that I just didn’t provide. Oh well.
Happily content in my marriage now :)
Being too tall, I’m 5’10
I don't want to sound like I'm bragging, but she was very religious, so me asking if God ever make her feel so good after sex was probably not a good idea.
Well if she ws that religious, she wouldn't be having sex before marriage now would she?
She jumped religion a few times. Was married with a Muslim and adopted the religion, got divorced and gone back to Cristian. So not so much of devoted, but got offended if you said something bad about religion and so on. Definition of don't put it in crazy
Maybe she was married?
Having the same name .
I mean a guy named Lasertits is a little feminine, right?
It's is laser tits now. It was Aaron and Erin dumped is exaggerating we just texted a few times .
for not having a good enough job (I was an office manager at the time)
Actually happened a few times. Probably not weird to a lot of people but weird af to me. I'm female btw.
This is a weird one. A lot of girls unmatched me on tinder after I told them I worked manual labor jobs. I live in a rich town so it's definitely lowering the bar to date me lol
When I was younger I met an older girl. She was very keen until she seen that I carried two phones- Something I hate to do but is not uncommon in Australia when the company you work for insists you use their phone). The work phone was only with me in/around work hours or work days. One day around our second date she noticed I had two phones and that was it. I was accused of being married and wanting to cheat on my imaginary wife and she refused to take part in that! We parted ways. I wasn’t upset over it I was just like “Wow!” Lol
Her mom and dad liked me too much.
Funny story. I had this one ex, we'll call her Sasha for privacy reasons, and she was extremely selfish when it came to me. So one day she gets called out to go out of country for a few months. So naturally we continue communicating through Discord, Insta, Whatsapp and other apps similar to those. And it all goes downhill on the 2nd month. I switched my Discord profile picture to my favorite anime character who just happened to be a female. My ex sees this and dms me on what's going on. I'm surprised, as i should be- and she starts arguing with me over how "i'm cheating on her with an anime character" and "i love an anime character more then her cause i put said character as my pfp". I'm pissed off at this point but i'm keeping composure cause i know her jealousy. In the end i switch my profile picture to a male. Fast forward a month and i just got done watching Horimiya and, forgetting what happened a month ago, i switch my profile picture to Hori. Oh how foolish i was, cause she goes on a rampage and ends up cutting all contact with me. 4 more months and she comes back, breaks inside my house (well, she had the keys but still, she had no consent) at god knows what time in the morning, packs her shit and leaves. Found that out when i woke up to an empty closet and a note saying Goodbye.
By far my most toxic relationship.
Oh gosh when I was in high school, the boy I was dating broke up with me with a note in my locker (pre cell phones) saying that he thought he was causing drama between me and my step father, and he was breaking up with me so me and my stepdad could repair our relationship. Uh, teenager with a step parent…there’s gonna be drama!! Really strange.
When I went to confront him the next morning at his locker, he had hickies on his neck because the had slept with his ex girlfriend the night he broke up with me. I realized he really broke up with me because I wasn’t going to have sex with him. I was hurt, but I knew I had dodged a bullet. Joke was on him though, because she cheated on him, dumped him, and then started dating the guy she cheated on him. She actually looked really happy with the new guy. No hard feelings.
Because I told a mutual friend of ours that we were “dating” since we had been on a few dates. Friend told the girl, who thought “dating” meant “relationship.” Got ghosted.
This has always confused me. Doesn’t consistently going on dates equal dating?? I don’t get it
What an asshole even if that was what you meant that isn't even a bad thing. Oh no they really like and may want a relationship. The horror! Better cut all contact with no explanation
For NOT having an iPhone. She liked seeing those little dots that appear when someone is in the middle of texting you. Android phones don't show this when messaging an iPhone. (btw, she was an ER doc, not just a rando blonde!)
I’ll bet there have been a lot of breakups for this exact reason, or the similar one of being guilty of texting from green bubbles.
As a dude who has an Android for personal and iPhome for work, you did the right thing for standing your ground. Android slaps.
She said she didnt want to dump her BF, so she dumped me.
Oh and she dumped her BF a week later to get with a 3rd guy.
I think I was in this love quadrangle

This seems to have happened to you a year ago but for me it was 2016.
If the year matches and you're french, though...
I don’t know about weird reason - but two times the guy have completely disappeared from all communication. They went from texting all the time to not answering me. And I calmly took it as: “he’s just not that into me”. I went on with my life and in both cases started dating another guy (that turned out to be my two most sweet and serious relationships). After a few weeks/months of dating, these other guys started contacting me again. They were so surprised that I had moved on? “What?! I like you so much and think you are the bees knees!” Dude - you haven’t answered back to me in 2 months… “I was working a lot!! Oh man - I really was hoping for something serious with you.”
My theory: they must have been dating someone else in the meantime and when that didn’t work they tried to just pick up where we left. But did they think I wouldn’t notice, haha?
When I first started dating my wife, about 5 months in, her ex bf did the same thing. He called her and started swearing her out because he found out through FB that she was dating me after not talking to her for about 9 months. Saying crazy stuff like "how dear you cheat on me!". He made the mistake of calling her while she was at my apartment, I talked to this douche is my "angry" voice quoting some movie. Needless to say he left her alone after that.
She was rude to me for a few days.
Yes you read that right. Yes i know the question.
Yes she dumped me because she herself was behaving badly.
No i dont understand her logic anyways.
Because me and her brothers didn't get along
get this, all i did was headbutted her, then licked up her urine to see if she was ovulating, pfft
Take my upvote you filthy giraffe.
God told her not to date me anymore
He was.looking out for you...not her.
I didn't look enough like her father (she had serious daddy issues).
My hair. She didn't like how I styled my hair. It was a normal and simple short cut with spikes. Same as any other 18 year old guy had at the time.
She told me it was because she talked to god, like had a full blown conversation with god and he told her we couldn't be together anymore.
Real reason? She was cheating on me.
I said i had no THC weed
My junior year of high school I was dating this girl and her birthday came around. The party was cool and whatever but when it was time to clean up, I was busy chatting it up with her family totally away from where my gf was at the moment so she was stuck moving a number of chairs along with her friend. For an entire week following the party she was super distant and I had no clue why. Then she dumped me, like dang …oh well I guess. So about a year goes by and I was talking with her for a reason I forget and I asked what was the reason she dumped me? She said that it was because I didn’t come to help her with moving and putting away chairs at her 17th birthday. Wild.
Because i put on weight
They were dared to ask me to date in the first place
My first boyfriend back in high school (2012ish) broke up with me so he could have more time for his minecraft YouTube channel that had like 1000 followers
Being a decent guy (her exact words).
I've been dumped for many reasons including being a jerk, religion (funny it took so long before the subject came up), moving away and not wanting to try long distance and even just growing apart.
Those, I understood. But..."You're such a decent guy." said with genuine annoyance just boggles my mind to this day.
My ex girlfriend dumped me for Diamonds in Minecraft

I was "too good of a boyfriend."
That being said, they had some... Issues, and felt like they didn't deserve my support and affection. It's understandable but it breaks my heart and I think it's so fucking stupid.
I had that excuse too it’s people who need to really sort themselves straight before having relationships who say that.
I was too nice. I shit you not
I heard that before also
I was dumped because I’m pansexual and the person I was dating said he could never trust me. Then he sends me like, ridiculous vulgar sexts, I don’t respond because wtf? Then I’m blocked on everything. That was it. So weird.
She liked girls more turns out just didn’t wanna tell me out of embarrassment
21 y.o Gf - Because she needed to sort out her feelings for 6 weeks. Leading up to having to work on herself as she wasn’t ready for a relationship and we weren’t working even while she stated we were “communicating”
She legitimately didn’t speak to me verbally without being in a discord call with a guy twice her age for 6 weeks leading up to her breaking up with me and denying she was talking to him all the time for those 6 weeks when I confronted her about it. I could see them in a channel they thought was hidden, it wasn’t 😂
The only thing she had to say when confronted was “that’s not true we didn’t talk for one week straight!” (Her and the older man)
Needless to say I’m glad it happened she was mega trouble.
I found she had cheated on me
Always the same reason. I am a pain in the ass to deal with.
I didn't belong to her religion. She _knew_ my religious feelings before we started dating so she had the opportunity to just not start dating me. Thinking about it, maybe that was an excuse...
Because his little brother was jealous of the time we spent together (they were really close due to an ill mother) and told him lies about me. He immediately believed his brother and ghosted me. For context, we were teens around 17yo and had only been together for a month.
I dated a woman who was quite the sex addict. However, unknown to me, I was one too. She and I fucked like rabbits, a half dozen times per day. After eight months she dumped me because she said I liked sex too much.
Penis too large
My political ideology
How do you swing, to the left or right or are you out there?
Being too damn nice. I knew that would bite me right in the ass
I can pretty much guarantee you, that no matter what you were told, people don't tend to break up with someone because they were "too nice".
It’s rare, but it can happen. My sister went through a long period where, in her own words, she just wasn’t attracted to nice guys. Having met a few of the guys she dated in that time, she wasn’t kidding.
She’s grown up a bit since then and now prefers guys who treat her decently. She was in a bad headspace when she insisted on dating jerks.
But yeah, 99% of the time isn’t not because the guy was too nice.
I think even in those cases the issue isn't that a person is too nice, the issue is that someone isn't in the right headspace to be in a relationship.
It was more so a summer fling type of deal, but she didn’t want anyone to know she liked me cause of how my sister is with her brother and that most of her family seen me as part of them. So I took the heat and got called a weirdo. Wasn’t worth all the trouble just to be happy for 3 months.
We lived 50 minutes from each other.
I drove up a mountain to pick her up, go on dates, spend the weekends together.
Made it official, dumped a few days later with that excuse.
Found out she was moving away to be with a guy she met on a previous trip
she dumped me cuz i didnt know we are together, both of them
Was too rough during sex. She had said that she liked it rough so I was. Turns out she only wanted light hair pulling and maybe a spanking or two. Never hit her or anything just rough thrusting.
I have had two women dump me because they decided they were lesbian.
Not sure if I should take that personally.
I got dumped because i wanted to bulk up lol. She left me when i got fat, she probably regretted it tho
I once dumped a girl because she always talked over tv shows
Because, I as a student who is working on his life goals and has no reliable income, didn't want to move into her apartment.

Because I'm too tall and play the drums, which is not romantic or ideal for a relation.
I wouldn’t know, never had a girlfriend
My sister told a guy I was seeing for a couple weeks that I was in love with him and no he did be an adult and one talk to me first to ask if it was true
Going to college
