Are You Usually the Dumper or the Dumpee?
Sometimes it can be fun to walk down memory lane here on SYBD. I sometimes like to read over posts from our forum that date back to our very early days. In today’s post I am re-visiting a forum post that I started in July 2000 (a week after this site was launched in fact). The post asked if people were usually the dumper or the dumpee. I’ll share some of the responses from that thread but would love to hear your, rather more recent, thoughts and experiences.

Are you usually dumped or the one who does the dumping? Or are you like me with experience on both sides? I look forward to hearing your stories.
Let us know all about your dumping experiences and fill these forums with a little bit of your life!
I have been the dumper and the dumped. Neither is particularly nice 🙁
From listening to my friends’ experiences, they all say that they tend to be dumped rather than do the dumping…so it seems either most of my friends are unfortunate or most people experience being dumped more often than having to do the dumping!
Another had to get drunk to have the courage to tell me that the only reason he’d dated me in the first place was because he fancied my flatmate, and had done from the very first second he saw her. (I lost out on 2 other guys for the same reason. But all credit to my flatmate, she was never interested in any of them).
Regardless, please feel free to share your story, anonymously. You never know, it may just help someone else to read your experience and therefor, something else good can come of it…
