Teen dating after breakup
Similarly, phone call conversations (which are seen as the second-most acceptable way of breaking up with someone) are relatively common: 29% of teens with relationship experience have broken up with someone over the phone, and 27% have been broken up with in this way.
In certain ways, these reported real-world experiences line up with teens’ general attitudes about the most socially appropriate ways to break up with someone.
No matter where you fall on this spectrum, what's most important is that you don't skip any of the above steps.
This way, when you start dating again, you are doing so from a place of wholeness—not desperation or single-phobia.
For example, having an in-person conversation is viewed as the most generally acceptable way to break up with someone, and these conversations are the most common way that breakups occur in a “real-world” setting.
Some 62% of teens with relationship experience have broken up with someone in person, and 47% have been broken up with through an in-person discussion.
In hindsight I can see that our biggest weaknesses fed off of each other.
