    Have you ever done this or had this done to you? Sharon and Gunther went to a nice restaurant that was filled with people. They were going out for the first time in months and their relationship is going pretty good. (Or so they thought.)
    Right after the waiter takes their order, Gunther begins telling Sharon about his day. (This was a typical thing) Right in the middle of Sharon's turn to speak the food arrives. They stop to say grace and then start their meal. Sharon is almost through with her story when Gunther cuts in, "There is no easy way to say this but I'm not happy in the relationship and I've been seeing someone else." Sharon looks stunned but keeps her composer.

    Tell me what you would do next.
    Why do people choose to break up this way?
    Have you ever been on either side of this type of break up?

    Wow, I don't know how I would have reacted. I'd probably want to just get up and exit the restaurant. I would NEVER do that to a guy.

    I heard a guy, (I can't remember if it was a show or real) say that it's less embaressing that way. (It prevented her from yelling or making a scene because people would be watching.)

    i've never been dumped. i think it's messed up. once i was sure it was over with my ex, i told him so, and that i was gonna start dating other people. that he chose to not believe me was his problem.

    He should have told her before she ordered. (A lady deserves one good lobster meal.) ;)

    ive never had that happen but ive been dumped before

    i would be pissed off that he'd asked me to the restaurant in the first place to dump me coz i would think thats a good sign if hes saying come have dinner with me. i would maybe ask a few questions then get up and leave.

    Well tho I dont agree with him pretending they were fine while eating, I have no problem with breaking up this way. I see it as a sign of respect to break up in person, he did. I see it as nice to let the other person enjoy one last nice meal, he did. He may have been a little harsh with his words, but if they truly had a good relationship that was growing apart, this should have been the perfect way to break it off.
     
  13. i agree with the last poster. but id order whatever the hell i wanted. :)

    Ding ding ding. I think that's why most people do it that way. I knew a lady who would not allow her husband to take her to red lobster because her father dumped all of his wives there. It was also the only time he'd eat there. I'm with mystical, as long as they were paying for the food, all I can say is "Thanks for dinner, good riddance"
