As the saying goes, breaking up is hard to do. I imagine it’s not the best feeling to have someone you’re totally into telling you that well, they just don’t feel the same way. I also imagine having to do the breaking up is not that easy as well — especially if you’re an overly-nice person who doesn’t like to hurt people’s feelings.
There are some good reasons to break up with someone — from not wanting the same things in life to someone treating you less than you deserve. It’s not always easy to make that decision, but it’s hard to ignore the “good reasons” to breakup with someone. There are a lot of people who have bad breakup stories though — it’s kinda rare to hear of one that was amicable and a well-thought out decision, but they do happen.
It also happens that some people don’t think things through — or maybe they do, but they come up with some pretty lame reasons to breakup with someone. There’s a funny hash-tag on Twitter that has people adding in their stories for the worst breakups and some are just strange and jaw dropping.

You’re Too Good For Me 2 of 11
I know this one is supposed to make someone feel better, but it really doesn't give them much.
Tweet from @FayAmazing
Trial Expired 3 of 11
I have to admit, it is funny, but really pretty mean.
Tweet from @ThatGirlValace
I Need Time 4 of 11
Well, it kind of makes sense after a big loss, but I don't know if this classifies.
Tweet from @CheyenneCReeves
You’re Too Tall 5 of 11
You would think that the person saying this breakup excuse would have noticed that earlier on?
Tweet from @hannah_siebert
It’s Not You 6 of 11
I think this excuse is given when you really don't have a reason, or you do but don't want to be honest. It's always best to be honest.
Tweet from @lovestough
You Party Too Much 7 of 11
This one is especially bad if you met them in a club or go out with them every weekend too.
Tweet from @AndrewWK
We Want Different Things 8 of 11
If you're going to use this one, be sure there is actually a reason or be nice and give a real one like, "I'm just not that into you."

I Just Don’t Want a Relationship 9 of 11
If you really want some time to focus on you, this can be legitimate. Just don't let your ex catch you out with someone right after.
Tweet from @PandaPrincess
I Want You to be Happy 10 of 11
Just be honest and tell them that you just want to be happy and in this relationship, you're not.
Tweet from @o0Oh_nbae
You Deserve Better 11 of 11
I feel like it's such a cop-out to not be honest and to say something like this. Unless this is followed up by saying you're going to be focusing hard on making your self esteem better, I don' t believe this one.
