Is it normal to not break up in person anymore?

I've always been the one broken up with, but it's always been via text.

Is this just how it is now? Are people cowards for not breaking up to your face? Or am I just not worth breaking up to in person? so many questions about this

I remember when people thought it was shocking and horrible to break up via text

    I think it depends on how much of your communication is done via text in general. If more than 50% ofnyour conversations are done via text, it seems normal, if a little bit cowardly. We just live in a world where texting is more common than speaking for some people.

    I've only ever been dumped in text, but to be fair i've done the same thing myself lmao but only to people I was dating though (as in not in an official relationship). I dumped my ex in person even though it was very hard for me who has anxiety and hate confrontation, then he made me give him a second chance only to dump me on text 2 weeks later lol.

    It’s been years since I’ve broken up with someone but I ended my last relationship over a phone call. We both knew it had run it’s course and I didn’t see the point of us trudging to a “neutral break up ground” to have an awkward conversation tinged with sadness in-front of random strangers.

    In the 2000s this would have been seen as callous but nobody said anything about it. I think the stigma of not breaking up in person has faded for shorter and less intense relationships. I also suspect there are more long distance relationships now than 20 years ago so more long distance break ups are inevitable.
