It's bad form to break up with someone over text, but it's really uncomfortable to end a relationship over Twitter, and that's just what one couple did, much to the delight of the Internet.
It started when a guy tweeted out his suggestion that people save up a few thousand dollars, quit their jobs and live off their savings for six months.
Among the questions that tweet raised was the obvious one about rent. The person who answered it was the guy's girlfriend, who revealed her parents pay two-third's of the couple's rent.
my parents pay for 2/3 of the rent— limbo (@youknowlimbo) December 4, 2017
The boyfriend retorted that her parents don't have to do that.
they know they don't need to. but parents are awesome like that— your dad (@nohidea_) December 4, 2017
Then the girlfriend explained how her parents struggle to make sure that she is doing okay.
they're not helping at this point. their struggling so that their daughter and boyfriend who makes triple what they do in a month are happy.— limbo (@youknowlimbo) December 4, 2017
somethings not right there.
Things broke down from there and their public bickering really heated up.
tell em not to, then— your dad (@nohidea_) December 4, 2017
or just pay the correct amount of rent owed and not make my parents struggle..— limbo (@youknowlimbo) December 4, 2017
..how can you leave out everyone who has helped you?
you think success comes by just quitting your job and focusing your energy?
you've had so much help yet you don't even mention any of it..
i paid it today tho? wyd pic.twitter.com/bf0LU95TL6— your dad (@nohidea_) December 4, 2017
the apartment costs 2,400 - the full amount of rent you should be paying would be 1,200— limbo (@youknowlimbo) December 4, 2017
once again though - not mentioning any of the help.
At this point, people were wondering why they weren't taking the convo offline.
guy locked himself in the spare bedroom so this is unfortunately my only option— limbo (@youknowlimbo) December 4, 2017
Not long after, the guy tweeted that their relationship was over, blaming the conversation. His now ex felt differently.
this conversation literally just broke my girlfriend and i up, lmao.— your dad (@nohidea_) December 4, 2017
are you kidding?— limbo (@youknowlimbo) December 4, 2017
there are SO many things that led to you just breaking up with me but if this is your reasoning for leaving then i chose the wrong guy
Here's hoping he already started saving up his money!
