Modern Day Break-Up

It used to be that if you wanted to end a relationship and avoid that awkward confrontation, all you had to do was leave a message on said person’s answering machine, drop some snail mail, or leave a note taped to their dorm room door.  Nowadays, technology has made breaking up easier and more complicated all at once.  Email, social sites (Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace – is anyone still using MySpace?), and even YouTube are all being used as vehicles for romantic separation.

Here are few of my personal favorites:

-A friend of mine called in tears the other day to ask me if I noticed her BF had changed his relationship status on Facebook from “In a relationship” to “Single.” Can you say, “OUCH!”

-Who can forget the break ups of Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson, along with Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy.
Hey, that’s one way to get the word out quick, right?

Ok, dish, how have you broken up with someone or been broken up with via social media?
