A reader asks:
“Is it ever acceptable to break up with someone over the phone?”
I can think of scenarios where breaking up on the phone would be appropriate. Abuse and so forth.
But if you have had a significant relationship with someone… if you have been lovers and whatnot then it does seem to me you owe it to the person to face them and tell them what the deal is unless you want to meet them next life, feel ashamed, be a weasel, etc.
What do others think? Where is your Mars?
