Awkward Break Ups That Broke The Internet

How many of us have made statuses about the hope and forgiveness of love that completely contradict our actions? Maybe we want to seem like the bigger person when secretly we are wishing our ex would get trapped under a burning bus. (Okay, maybe that’s a little harsh.) Well, for this particular individual it is more than okay if she was wishing this about her ex-husband. Someone that has the nerve to impregnate their wife’s sister, let alone cheat with her in the first place, really deserves the what they have coming.

You Got My Sister Pregnant

The greatest part about this is not even the response that she gracefully gave her ex, it’s the five likes from people that support and love her, unlike him. Most likely they are leaning more toward the “dumb[explicit]” comment, but it is nice to know people are there for you in awful times like this.

An Uncomfortable Distance

Okay, talk about awkward! This poor woman has to find out that her husband has been cheating on her by a mistake text when he is in the same room! We can’t tell what’s funnier in this situation though, the fact it didn’t register right away to her that she was being cheated on or that she keeps texting back while still in the room with him.

An Uncomfortable Distance

We can only imagine what came out of her mouth when she realized that she could use her words seeing that he was only a few feet from her. Let’s hope she opted for a divorce after finding out this horrible news, especially due to his nonchalant manner when sending the “Oops, sorry. That was meant for someone else” text.

The Mid-Air Break Up

You know you heard about this! This lady live tweeted the most devastatingly awkward break up ever between a couple that was midair. Screaming, crying, and awkward silences abounded, and this woman could not help herself from sharing the public breakup that eventually went viral. Saying, “I just can’t stand to be near you. I would change seats if I could,” the guy was just ripping into the sad girl as she expressed that he hated everything about her and that she regretted spending an extra $40 to get on the same flight as him.

The Mid-Air Break Up

It’s quite sad, and clearly, they went their separate ways following the landing, but little did they know that their breakup was breaking the internet by the time they got home from the airport. This definitely tops our list as one of the most awkward break-ups of all time.

A Never-Ending Awkward Silence

Ah, ever wish you could take something back but you just can’t? Although it may be comforting to know that someone did want to leave but they were taken from you, it doesn’t make it hurt any less knowing you will never see them again. Megan was just being a good friend by trying to defend her girl, but it doesn’t take away from the awkward silence we even feel looking at the ellipses after the word “died.”

A Never-Ending Awkward Silence

Luckily Facebook offers an edit and delete option for comments now that can help us erase awkward but caring mistakes like this one, thanks for that Zuckerberg. But at the end of the day, poor Bridgette…

The Fear of Commitment

Hmm, someone isn’t in sync. It always sucks when people in a relationship are on completely different wavelengths, doesn’t it? One wants to get married and the other has been contemplating how to break up with them for at least the last few months. This is the classic case of fear of commitment if you ask us.

The Fear of Commitment

We don’t mean to be sexist in any sense, but we can only imagine that the “for you and me to grow up and get married and stay together forever” text came from the girlfriend as the reluctant “before it got too serious text” came from the jerk boyfriend. Although we could be wrong! Either way, these people deserve other people that want the same things that they do.

A Roller Coaster of Emotions

We don’t know if you caught this one and the debate that sparked the “roller coaster break up,” but we think it seems pretty real. Granted, there most likely would not have been a camera right at the front of the ride, but still look at her face. Just as the first drop hits and the girl is feeling the rush of wind in her hair, her boyfriend screams “I want to break up! I can’t do this!”

A Roller Coaster of Emotions

At first, she doesn’t think he’s being serious but then between dips, he admits that it’s true and he really does want to break up. After she realizes what’s happening at the next dip and twirl, you can hear her screaming, “why are you doing these here?!” over and over. And, it. is. awkward. Okay, it’s fake, but it’s still awkward!

It’s Not Complicated

Have you ever been a situation where your “hope for the best” translates into “it’s complicated” on Facebook? Generally, the person that made the mistake is the one that had the hope, but have you ever seen someone get called out publicly on their own status? Yikes, obviously Carmen cheated on Randy and Randy’s not over it.

It’s Not Complicated

With a last bit of grace. however, he doesn’t even call her names and just simply puts her on blast for her “numerous” mistakes. We can only imagine that Randy’s “engaged” turn into “single,” unlike Carmen’s relationship status- awkward. But, good for you Randy! You deserve better.

When the Music Stops

In one of the more awkward break-up announcements we have seen, this musical couple wrote a song about why they need to break up, performed it together and it even has choreography that they obviously rehearsed together. Apparently, the couple had been together for years but disagreed on having children, so they came to an unfortunate conclusion.

When the Music Stops

The YouTube video went completely viral and its awkwardness went along with it, although this was their genuine way of announcing to family and friends that they were no longer going to be together or play music together ever again. R.I.P. musical couple.

Unlimited Heartless Texting

Some people really lack common sense and common courtesy like this jerk that decided to break up with his girlfriend Ashley by changing his relationship status. Clearly, things between the two were not going well before the decision as it went from “it’s complicated” to “single,” not “in a relationship.”

Unlimited Heartless Texting

But, there is still a right way to do things when ending something as complex as a friendship with the person you supposedly love most in the world, and this isn’t the way to go about it. To pour even more salt in Ashley’s wound, Nick responded with a snarky comment about the text he sent her that was under his unlimited plan. Classy, Nick, classy.

An Unspoken Divorce

Okay, this has to be the worst one. What better way of finding out that your parents are divorcing than getting a notification on Facebook that your mom is “listed as single?” Normally, parents have the common decency to sit their kids down and explain the situation or at least tell them they are getting a divorce! Dang, this mom really dropped the ball.

An Unspoken Divorce

Especially knowing that all of their family and friends can see the public and awkward conversation, and chances are she did not share the divorce with very many other people if she didn’t share it with her own son! Poor kid, hope he was grown.

Caught in the Act

Cheating 101: it’s normally not a good idea to post evidence of your escapades with another woman on social media. Especially if you have placed your familiarly tattooed hand on her butt! Just like this one, your friends will call you out and friends of your girlfriend will find out, you idiot!

Caught in the Act

Although you should not cheat in the first place, at least make an attempt to be stealthy about the injustice. That’s really the absolute least you could do unless you wanted to get caught. If someone is willing to lose that person so easily, they should have just broken up with them in the first place.

It Happens

Okay, this may be awkward for Olivia, but it is pretty hilarious! Who is stupid enough to use permanent ink to scratch out a name and replace it with “[explicit] happens,” I mean come on. As if it was bad enough that you got her name on your neck in the first place, you’re going to remedy the situation with that phrase?!

It Happens

The even funnier part is that it was posted by Olivia, so he clearly had someone take a picture of his neck and text it to her. Yes, he deserves you posting his stupidity online for everyone to see, but he also is crossing out your name with the phrase that completely discounts every minute the two of you had together. Yikes, talk about an awkward breakup!

The Ex-Box Hack

Oh man, she hacked you good, Marshall! Changing your relationship status for you? What a take-charge kind of girl and even a classy one at that. Sharing that “she wasn’t good enough,” rather than calling him a cheating pig, is seriously classy for someone that has just had their heart broken.

The Ex-Box Hack

But, imagine being Marshall when he goes to check his Facebook after not getting any texts or calls back from his “girlfriend;” that’s gotta hurt. Of course, he deserves it, and probably deserves the Xbox, too. We only wonder if he remembers agreeing to that…?

Dirty Dave

Dave was probably just grabbing some groceries at the store, or at “her” apartment, but he’s busted whoever he is. Although this is really sad, this is totally a bad ass way of telling someone you caught them for all to see.

Even more bad ass is that she took all of his money, which is probably how he got his girlfriend in the first place. It takes a lot of courage to create such a devastating and awkward situation for someone that you were supposed to spend the rest of your life and raise your kids with. #teamnikki

With Every Mile

Oh my gosh, have you ever seen anything more awkward if your life?! Thinking that she was being proposed to toward the start of the road, Jennifer had to be the happiest woman in the world. Little did she know that with each mile, there was another sign awaiting her pending broken heart, poor girl.

With Every Mile

We can only assume that she did something to deserve such cruelty. Or at least, we hope she did. If not, this is unbelievably cruel.Those six days are going to be rough ones for Jennifer; meanwhile, everyone in town is aware of what’s going on between the two thanks to these totally awkward and humiliating signs.

The Only One for Everyone

In easily the best break up on the list, this guy has us on the edge of our seats while we are reading this letter. When you first start reading, you think “aw this guy really misses this girl and wants to make it work,” but then you realize the thoughtful letter is dedicated to sleep. Oh, glorious sleep, how we miss you when we neglect you for partying and long nights of studying.

The Only One for Everyone

Sometimes we cheat on you with caffeine because we are denial about how much we truly need you and how great for us you are. At the end of the day, we could never go without you in our lives and will always want you back. PS, we love you too.

Transformation Tuesday

We love this “Transformation Tuesday” post. It may be sad for whoever that girl is in the picture, but this is seriously hilarious. Normally people show weight loss pictures when utilizing the popular hashtag, or even younger and older pictures together, but this type of transformation has us all totally cracking up.

Transformation Tuesday

As a very public form of announcement, he posted it on his Instagram which we can only assume was at the top of her feed when she woke up that morning. As the only Insta post we have on our list, we wanted to save it because of its original hilarity!

58 Minutes of Hell

There is nothing worse than embarrassing yourself after posting a loving status about a relationship that you are so proud of, and it happens often. We make the common mistake of gloating about our special connection because we get so wrapped up in the heart eye emojis and the way we think they make us feel, but really we need to chill so we can avoid embarrassing posts like this.

58 Minutes of Hell

Clearly, he either broke up with her or told her he was cheating because it took a good 58 minutes to re-post her relationship status as “single.” That must have been a long, awkward conversation. Yikes.

Why I’m Dumping You

Have you ever had someone take the time to make a list of reasons they are breaking up with you for and give it to you? What about post it on the internet for everyone to see after? We all have our personal versions of pros and cons lists when deciding whether or not someone is right for us, but to list quality after quality under the title “Why I’m Dumping You” is seriously harsh.

Why I’m Dumping You

Imagine if you were on the other end of that list, and look at how many bullet points there are. Hopefully, the poor soul was able to get themselves out of bed a week later after this, we’re rooting for you whoever you are.

But, We Did…

Awkward! We can only speak for ourselves, but we have never reached this level of humiliation on Facebook or any other social media outlet. Imagine going through a rough time and thinking you made it out together and posting a status about tagging your “boyfriend,” to which he responds that you did, in fact, break up. Ouch. Talk about a humiliating moment with the laughing emoji and everything.

But, We Did…

Even with the 23 likes, this Samantha must have done something pretty awful to deserve this or Mark’s just a jerk that thinks it’s funny to put his break up on display for the world to see. Either way, yikes.
