Yes, you read that title correctly. It’s possible.
There’s a lot of politics that go into dumping someone correctly. Ideally, it would be done face-to-face, and probably in a public area in order to avoid a crazy scene. But now, it seems like times have changed in a world where technology is interfering in more areas of our lives.
Here are 10 situations where it’s okay to dump someone through text message.
1. It’s the early days.
If you’ve only been on a few dates, a breakupmight not even be necessary, unless someone is truly confused as to why you’ve disappeared off the face of the planet.

Update 4:35 p.m.- TMZ is reporting that Khloe Kardashian has officially filed for divorce from her husband of four years, Lamar Odom. Papers were filed by Khloe’s divorce attorney, Laura Wasser, and as previously reported, cite “irreconcilable differences.”
When Khloe Kardashian dropped the Odom from her last name on Twitter, we should’ve known this was coming. It’s difficult to tell exactly how long Khloe and Lamar have been experiencing marital problems, but their issues definitely became more visible once Lamar’s alleged drug abuse issues began to taint his image in the public eye. Though Khloe took to social media with a statement reaffirming her commitment to making her marriage work and vowing to “ride til’ the end,” it appears that the wheels on that ride may have just given out. According to TMZ, it’s believed that the youngest Kardashian sister will be filing for divorce today.
Sources say that after just four years of marriage, Khloe will be citing irreconcilable differences in her divorce filing. It’s believed that the split should be a pretty clean one, as it’s reported that the estranged couple have airtight prenuptial agreements that kept all of their assets separate. And of course, there are no children, so an ugly, drawn out child custody dispute isn’t a concern.
At this point, nothing has been confirmed and this is all pure speculation. We can only hope that the rumors are not true and that Khloe and Lamar can find a way to work things out. But again, we don’t know what’s happening behind closed doors, so we won’t judge. Maybe it’s all for the best.
Is there a such thing as a “break-up season?” We haven’t done any studies on the phenomenon but it sure seems like a lot of celebrity couples have called it quits this fall. Maybe it’s the end of swimsuit season or the cold weather. What do you think? Is there a time of year when you’re more likely to lose your boo? Seems like that’s the case for these pairs.
There are a few—and I mean a very few—instances in which a broken relationship can be fixed and things can start anew. But you don’t just get to blindly walk into it, expecting the comfort of the familiar, and the butterflies of being reunited, to carry you through the problems that once destroyed you. There is work to be done. Here are some guidelines for getting started.
