Oscar Wilde once said that hearts are made to be broken. But, this poetic insight doesn’t really help ease the pain. No matter what the consequences are, it’s impossible for someone not to get hurt after a breakup. Breakups really, really suck! No matter which one of you ended things, the pain of calling it quits is devastating. Especially when you’ve invested so much of your time and emotions. From tribesman to Wall Street moguls, they’ll all tell you the same thing – that breakups suck! Love may feel like the greatest thing in the world, but when it ends, challenges feel insurmountable, and we stop functioning at our full capacity. And we sometimes feel like we won’t ever love again. The rest is just a myriad of things that will make you feel like utter crap.
Jimmy Fallon’s hashtags always end up generating some hilarious tweets. However, this time around he asked people to share how they got dumped.

1. This is just sad.
She asked me how to block someone on whatsapp.. I was not able to send her any more messages after the last set of instruction ?#HowIGotDumped

2. Here’s how it’s rightfully done.
My ex told me she wanted to be with someone who was a bit more mature and I responded by mimicking her voice in a childish tone. #HowIGotDumped

3. What could be worse than this?
I’m trying to think of funny ways how I got dumped but then I realized that I’ve never been in a relationship #HowIGotDumped

4. They’ve got history.
#HowIGotDumped He said his mother didn't want him seeing me anymore because she didn't like my dad. When I asked my dad about it, he said she didn't like him because he had dumped her back in high school. Love you dad!

5. Mother of the century.
When I was in high school, my mom saw my girlfriend kissing another guy. When she got home my mom said I had a phone call, and when I answered it I could hear my mom pretending to be my girlfriend on the upstairs line. She said it was over! #HowIGotDumped

6. This is the longest it went.
#HowIGotDumped I tried to break up with a guy 4 years ago. When I started to dump him, he said "We'll talk about this later" and rushed away. I haven't talked to him since so I guess we're still dating?

7. Meant to be together.
A guy offered my high school boyfriend one dollar to break up with me. Boyfriend took the money, and I ended up marrying the other guy #HowIGotDumped

8. This is cold but brilliant!
9. How I met your father.
Skype date with my girlfriend at the time and out walks a naked man from the bathroom behind her. Then he waved at me as he passed. #HowIGotDumped

10. People can be cruel.
I was young and I had this huge huge huge crush on this guy. The guy and his friends found out, they bet $25 that I would say yes immediately if he asked me out.
He asked, of course I said yes. Three days later he told me about the bet, said sorry, gave me $10#HowIGotDumped

11. Reasonable enough.
Couldn't reach a girl I was dating for 2 days, when I finally got her she said " after not talking to you for 2 days I realized I can live without you. #HowIGotDumped

12. That’s how it all went down.
In middle school I saw my gf holding another guys hand. When I confronted her on MSN later that night she told me to check my email. Turns out she emailed me a month earlier letting me know we were broken up cuz I “didn’t ever talk to her in person” #HowIGotDumped

13. He couldn’t roll with her anymore.
In 6th grade, I broke my leg and missed school for awhile. My first day back, I was in a wheelchair and my bf said-I dont think I can roll with you anymore. #HowIGotDumped

14. “Sad but true.”
I got dumped at a Metallica concert while they were playing "Sad But True". It's sad, but it's true. #HowIGotDumped
