Break-ups are hard. No, we don’t mean trying to move on after your partner has decided to leave you. We mean the actual act of breaking up is hard. Should you do it in person? Over the phone? Text? Just use emojis? It’s a complicated process. Luckily, you don’t have to make any of those tricky decisions anymore.
A new business in Australia just launched that offers to break-up with your boyfriend or girlfriend for you. The serviced, called “Sorry It’s Over”, was launched by Kristy Mazins to help millennials avoid awkward conversations. She told Mamamia, “You know with Gen Y how they’re so tech savvy, I think for them it’s the perfect service. I’m quite good at mediating people’s relationships. It’s a gift. I think it’s the counseling that goes with nursing.”
Starting at $5.50, Kristy will send either a text, email, handwritten note or even make a phone call to facilitate your break-up. Here’s an example text message of what she would send:
And an example email:
This seems like a lot more elegant a way to end things than how most millennials do so now, which mostly involves ignoring the other person’s phone calls and text messages until they get the hint. It’s certainly not the classiest way to end a relationship, but it’s certainly going to avoid a lot of awkward conversations.
If only they could create a service that could have generic holiday conversations with your relatives, then millennials would never need to make conversation in their lives.
