Of all the horrible things in the world of love and relationships, the most horrible has got to be the painful heartbreaks or, even worse, the break-up conversation. It’s filled with the inability to make eye contact, hesitancy to speak the truth, fear of confrontation and every feeling you cannot process. And yet, that appears to be infinitely better than ghosting, dishonesty, and other absolutely unfathomable excuses. On an episode of Koffee with Karan, Janhvi Kapoor said that when she was much younger, she broke up with someone because her boyfriend didn’t buy her a chicken burger. Undoubtedly, rejections and breakups hurt—but when they’re coupled with mean, questionable excuses, then not only are you profoundly hurt but angry, perplexed and frustrated. What we’re here to tell you is that, if you’ve been through this, take solace in the fact that you’re not alone. We asked a few people to reveal the worst reason someone gave them for the breakup. Read on.
