These 10 Things Exes Said During Fights That Led To Breakups Are Unsurprisingly Awful

Updated:

You've probably had it: A big, nasty fight with your significant other that cracked open the Pandora's box of hidden feelings and possible old resentments. It may have involved some eye-rolling, head shaking, loud sighing, maybe even a bit (or a lot) of yelling and voice-raising. You might have said some things during the fight that you didn't mean, or let a hurtful word or a sentence slip out because of spite. But what if one little line is so hurtful that it causes you to break up with your partner altogether? People on Reddit revealed some things their exes said during fights that caused them to end the relationship and they are unsurprisingly terrible.

It's true, arguments are inescapable in almost any relationship, no matter how much genuine love and affection two people may have for one another. And there are plenty of healthy ways to resolve them and make sure you don't get into the same arguments again later. But at times, the other person and especially the relationship isn't worth your time and effort. There are moments when these types of little slip-ups aren't so harmless and certain lines aren't oh-so-little to just move past. Sometimes, they can be a missing piece to a puzzle that finally reveals the full scope of who is it you're really dating.

The Guy That Still Didn't Get That No Matter What She Wears, A Woman Is Never Asking For It

He told me that I don't respect myself and that our local hookers dress better than me all because he didn't approve of my outfit. For context, I wore a crop top and shorts to the mall. I also live in the south where it is always hot and humid, and this was in the summer.

Just No

He called me a slut because I had pictures of me and 'random' guys on my Facebook from 5 years before we started dating and when I was in university. So, I let him throw all my stuff on the front lawn and I walked in grabbed my dog and left.
