Relationships come and relationships go. The reasons they end are as varied as humans themselves, and they range from the banal to the horrifying to the inexplicable.

But sometimes, the reasons they come to an end just seem…well, dumb. Minor. Inconsequential. The sort of reasoning that makes you think “This probably isn’t actually the root of it. If you truly had a strong connection with this person, something this small wouldn’t scare you off. Perhaps this was just a convenient, if silly, excuse.”

In any case, these ten examples of real break up rationales are truly something to behold.

Ok, I’ll admit, some of those are big enough to be a good reason on their own.
