Is it ok to text message break up if the person your dating lives 3 hours away from you?

My friend has gotton major heat because she broke with her man over text. However they Live 3 hours away from each other. Wouldnt it be dumb to drive three hours to have a break up conversation that lasts less then 5 minutes? I say text break up is fine if its a long distance relationship but if theres is no long distance between them then the break up should be done in person. Otherwise its scummy. Whats your opinión? My friend has been crying her eyes Out cause of these assholes being mean to her and i tell her that her situation is different cause its long distance. I hate seeing My friend so sad. Do u agree with me or disagree?

    In this situation, I agree with you 100%. Its always better to do it person, but not in this situation. She went about it the right way, so try to convince her of that.

    I think it depends on how long and serious the relationship was. If it was only a few weeks, and there’s quite a distance, then yes a text is fine. But, if they’ve been together for a number of years, and it was really serious, then she should’ve done the drive.

    I agree, this counts as a long distance relationship and she didn't owe him a face to face break up. Imagine allowing him to get excited about her coming all that way to see him only for it to end in a break up, that would have been a lot more cruel. Ideally she should have called or skyped him instead of texting, it would have been more personal. But what's done is done. She should block anyone who is harassing her over this and move on.
