Perhaps the man whose break-up text is now going viral should have stuck with “it’s not you; it’s me.”
Instead, the unnamed, disgruntled guy texted his now ex a list of six reasons he was dumping her, after dating for less than two months. This list was posted on Twitter by the dumpee’s friend, Amy Nelmes, from Sydney, Australia.
“My friend just sent me this break-up message she received after 7 weeks of dating. My fav reason for split is #3,” she tweeted.
That would be, “You are rude to my cat and that makes me feel uncomfortable.”
As of this afternoon, her tweet has been retweeted over 15,000 times.
The number one reason on the list is, “You refuse to update your relationship status on Facebook.”
Number six, however, is the most narrow-minded: “You won’t disclose how many sexual partners you have had which makes me think it is upwards of 3 and anything more than that is unacceptable.”
Both of the no-longer-lovers are unknown, but the women spoke to an Australian news website, ninemsn, about her ex. “He was 30, had a job, a car and a house. Certainly not what I normally manage to attract, so I thought I was onto something,” she said. ”He was a bit of a nerd, perhaps a bit quiet, but a genuinely nice guy all the same.”
She explained to the website that’s allergic to cats, hence her “rudeness” to the guy’s. She also says she didn’t write back—and that she’ll never date another man with a cat.
