This is a question What's the hardest you've tried to get dumped?

Groovypoodle writes, "My mate once told his girlfriend that he didn't think it was working only for her to laugh and tell him he was hilarious. Saying she was 'too weird' and 'slightly violent' and that he didn't like her was equally hilarious. Ripping off her wing mirror, throwing it through the windscreen
and storming off in a huff merely generated an apology from her a week later..."

Just how hard have you had to work to get someone to take the hint and stay dumped?

I've never done this myself, but I have had it done to me. It began with my first ever boyfriend giving me the silent treatment. When I asked him what was wrong, he muttered something about "feeling under pressure".

A day or two later we went on a night out with his friends. I didn't get in the club as I was a few weeks shy of 18, to which his response was "Oh, jolly bad luck, oh well, see you tomorrow." At the time it all seemed perfectly reasonable, but now, I, personally, would be a bit worried about a painfully naive teenage girl, making her own way home, in a strange city on a Friday night. I was shortly joined in the mile long taxi queue by Bawsack himself, who had been accused of trying to help an underager (me) into the club. He bitched and moaned all the way back to his.

In the morning, I touched on his point about being under pressure, and somehow ended up gently asking if he wanted to "finish it". He responded by breaking eye contact. We murmured some platitudes, I got dressed, kissed him on the cheek and left. So, things ended ostensibly on good terms. When I got back home however, I burst into tears as I suddenly realised that I had been used and had made a fool of myself.

It's been about four years since that happened, and I still wish that he'd had the balls to be honest with me from the start. Seeing that it was my first relationship (I had had NO interaction with the opposite sex before leaving home and only a couple of random snogs before him) the whole experience left me pretty fucked up for some time. I don't know what your situation is like, but I've found that honesty is pretty much always the best policy in relationships. If you tell a lie in order to spare someone's feelings, be prepared for them to find out or realise the truth, and be hurt ten times more than they would have been in the first place.

Have a big *click*....
and my QOTW cherry because I know exactly how you feel and agree that honesty is best.

My ex spent 18 months of our 7 year relationship telling me lies about wanting to spend his life with me when he was secretly shagging someone else. It felt shite when I found out - and it was not him who told me but sneaking a long avoided look at his phone that did. I wish the silly arse had been honest all that time ago because it would have ended a whole lot cleaner than it did.
