Most all of us have been on at least one end of a breakup. They never is any easy way to do it. A new survey got some answers about break ups  one in five people have called it quits via text message. 13% of people actually preferred it that way. They would rather get a text than be dumped in person or on the phone.

To me, that seems about as tacky as a Post It note on their forehead when they're sleeping. It's almost as bad as ghosting, you know, just kind of disappearing.

Here are the top ten opening lines to a breakup and what they really might mean:

"We need to talk"  Just walk away and start packing.

"It's not you, it's me"   It's you.

"We want different things"   I'm tired of your "things"

"I've been thinking"   A lot about your sister

"I'm not ready for a serious relationship"    With you

"I need some time for me"  Several decades might do it

"There's someone else"   There just has to be!

"I don't know how to tell you this, but"     How long have we been together, not counting tomorrow?
